With Benchmark Estimating Software you can construct an estimate using resource-based estimating methods (labour, materials, subcontract, plant/equipment). This gives you the power to include as much detail as you require in your tender meaning our software is flexible enough to meet the individual needs of your business while remaining easy to use.
Our “Power Routines” feature is ideal for Precast Concrete tenders which involve many items, such as walls or flooring, where there is a similar operation for each element of the Project. Power Routines ensures efficient, consistent pricing of such tenders.
Benchmark Estimating Software makes preparing a price for your client very easy; you can utilise your database of rates in your “Item Library” to save time and eliminate the chance of leaving things out of your estimates. You also have access to powerful, time-saving features such as “Routines”, user-defined “Variables”, “Auto Allocate” and “Production Rates”. Benchmark Estimating Software also gives you the ability to import your takeoff data electronically, or import a bill of quantities issued to you by a Client from a spreadsheet.
Generating professional looking quotes in Microsoft Word (based on your own templates) is simple to do with Benchmark Estimating Software as is exporting your estimate data to Microsoft Excel and creating a program in Microsoft Project. You can also manage quotes from Subcontractors as well as creating Progress Claims and pricing Variations.
