With Enterprise's advanced multi-user capabilities, you can have multiple estimators working on the same estimate, at the same time, minimizing redundancy and increasing accuracy and efficiency. The system allows the maintenance of items and assemblies while estimates are being created, thereby eliminating any downtime.
The Power of a Spec-Driven Database
Accubid Enterprise includes specifications, assemblies and item libraries. Specifications hold key item property information including material description, attributes, and manufacturer, so you need only enter a few fields at time of takeoff. This flexibility reduces redundancy while providing detail and accuracy without sacrificing speed. For value engineering purposes, you can modify the spec to evaluate alternate scenarios.
Using an intuitive and customizable takeoff pad, you can click graphic shortcuts to quickly select items and assemblies for takeoff. This intuitive interface allows contractors to leverage the staff's time by allowing the delegation of more repetitive tasks and freeing up senior staff. One takeoff pad can serve several scenarios and lends itself well to touch screens.
Using current technologies, you can obtain up-to-date pricing for projects, including pricing from vendors not associated with pricing services. Reduce the burden and risk of manually entering prices at bid time by allowing vendors to see quantities so as to provide volume pricing.
