The Software

Estimator Paul Sheridan, of Midwest Civil (now owned by Hazell Group Tasmania), says, “Benchmark Estimating Software is better than any other estimating system I have used at any other company.”

Midwest Civil has owned Benchmark Estimating Software since April 2003 and receives great benefit from the software’s Item Library and the fact that Benchmark Estimating Software captures and controls the company’s costing data.

Paul says, “Benchmark Estimating Software’s Item Library and Project Browser store all of our data and estimates in one central location so we can get instant access to the rates we used in past tenders.”


The Training

Benchmark Estimating’s comprehensive training services have ensured Midwest Civil know how to maximise the benefits of Benchmark Estimating Software’s features. After completing the New User Course, Paul attended an Advanced User Course and commented, “The Advanced User Course gave me many great hints and tips allowing me to utilise many more of Benchmark’s features”.

The Support

Benchmark Estimating provides impressive support to ensure clients maximise the business benefits of the software. A consistent theme running through our feedback is great after sales service, and Paul agrees, saying, “Benchmark Estimating is responsive to our requests and their overall support is excellent.”
