The central Resource and Item Libraries store all of your standard products and services in a systematic way so that your estimating is much more organised, consistent and accurate. Price lists from Suppliers can be imported electronically to ensure your quotes are always up to date, and you can capture your standard “Production Rates”, common “Variables” and methods of construction in the Item Library for optimum convenience and consistency when pricing jobs.
When preparing quotes, the powerful user defined “Variables” feature allows you to quickly change aspects like trench depths/widths or wastage to make your estimating much faster, relevant to the site and therefore more accurate.
The “Routines” feature is also a powerful tool for the Water and Sewer estimator. Routines can dramatically improve the speed of producing estimates for common Water/Sewer tasks. Benchmark Estimating Software’s unique “Water Estimator” product even includes pre-written Routines for Sewer Main Construction/Renewal, Water Main Construction/Renewal and Pumping Stations. These Routines have been developed in conjunction with Water Industry experts.
