If you miss a quote by as little as 1% on your jobs it can cost your business more than $50,000 a year, money that could be better spent in growing and developing your business.

This doesn’t even take into consideration the cost of unhappy clients facing delays in their builds, supervisors’ down time while driving to the merchant and collecting additional material, or extra delivery costs.

The use of the rapid graphical and question-based estimating allows the system to prompt you with questions that calculate accurate estimates. These estimates become your schedule of quantities, which becomes your orders to the suppliers.
