We develop custom construction cost estimating programs and mobile apps with intuitive UI/UX designs for efficiently tracking materials, labor, equipment, and soft costs. We program construction estimation software systems with custom algorithms, single-entry functionality, materials costs databases, schedules and task apps, and a UI/UX optimized for diverse workflows. We configure estimating programs for residential, commercial, and specialty projects.
We build localized equipment, materials, and labor cost databases with data set catalogs organized by craft (electrical, plumbing, masonry) and project type (heavy construction, green). Our asset and assembly estimation programs leverage database management systems (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL) to produce predictive costs, upkeep lifecycles, and contingency costs. We integrate popular databases (RSMeans, PlanSwift) into construction cost estimation platforms.
We develop quote estimation modules for calculating materials costs, which considers fluctuating market values and suppliers’ real-time inventories. We integrate material and equipment databases with multi-tiered search engines, historical client relationship information, and APIs for seamless connectivity to vendor ecommerce shops. Our custom calculators determine project costs according to specs, CAD details, and BIM objects.
We build custom software programs for rapidly calculating quantity and assembly takeoffs by aggregating and analyzing models on TIFF, PDF, DWF Adobe, JPEG, and CAD files. We integrate measurement tools (surface, linear, area, etc.) and features like cost optimization dashboards, 3D model views, Excel worksheet templates, superior error detection, cross section generation and analysis, and model proofing (elevation checking, site balancing, slope routines).
We customize cost estimation apps for contractors with quote management modules for tracking, negotiating, and finalizing materials purchases, as well as emailing tenders and budgets directly to clients or uploading them onto bidding platforms. We design centralized CRM and subcontractor management modules for maintaining active communications with construction partners and managing client approval of quotes, submittals, and change orders.
We integrate cloud-based construction takeoff and estimation software with APIs for uploading tenders to bid solicitation platforms and populating forms in contract management modules. We also implement cost estimation software as a program within integrated construction management systems, interfacing with modules for project management, ERP, CRM. Our accounting software integrations facilitate the real-time tracking of enterprise overheads and margins.
