The “Subcontractor Manager” feature allows you to streamline the process and improve the accuracy of selecting and importing Subcontractor’s quotes. Benchmark Estimating Software even allows you to design your own professional proposal formats in Microsoft Word and generate Lump Sum quotes or Schedule of Rates proposals with ease.
Our “Spread” feature allows you to manipulate your submission rates on an Item by Item basis to offer you excellent flexibility over your submission price breakdown for Schedule of Rates tenders. Integrated with this is our “Forecast Quantity” feature; this provides you with a very powerful tool which gives you the data you need to analyse expected variations in Item quantities, so you can make decisions on your Item Submission Rates for maximum profits during execution of the Contract.
Our Add, Allocate and Auto Allocate features within our estimating software are ideal for Facility Maintenance companies as they can be used at all stages of a maintenance contract. Add, Allocate and Auto Allocate from Item Library can be used to quickly and accurately bid the initial Maintenance Contract whereas Add, Allocate and Auto Allocate from Project can be used to price all packages of work undertaken under the initial contract.
When using Add Allocate or Auto Allocate from Project, your Submission Price will be as set for the initial contract with the Direct Costs be based on your current Resource Rates. This provides a clear picture of your margin for all of the work undertaken under the facilities management contract.
With Benchmark Estimating Software you can also produce detailed Progress Claims and export your estimate to Microsoft Project and leading Accounting/ERP systems, meaning we have your maintenance projects covered from start to finish.
