If you’re an estimator in residential, commercial, concrete and masonry, or earthwork construction then you'll also appreciate features to:

  • Easily determine materials, labor, and equipment needs for any job
  • Cost jobs properly considering variables such as workers’ skill, weather conditions, full-time and seasonal labor force, etc.
  • Swiftly consider ‘what-if’ scenarios to negotiate contracts
  • Automatically build audit trails to effectively handle disputes and avoid delay claims

Estimators working in the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC trades can better compete thanks to takeoff tools such as:

  • Shape Recognition that automates quantity counts by searching plans and annotating like symbols and shapes. The benefit is improved accuracy and time savings, not only when taking off original plans, but also when plans change.
  • Manage Sheet Revisions allows you to efficiently compare old plans to newer versions so you can quickly see changes that you can capture for additional profit.

Estimate with Confidence

Produce detailed estimates up to 10 times faster than using manual methods and spreadsheets. Not only can you enjoy seamless workflow and reduced data entry, but you can efficiently figure out what the materials, equipment, and labor will cost you by using pre-built and customizable databases, based on industry standard labor units.

General contractors enhance speed as takeoff data is pulled directly into the estimating process, helping you avoid the time and error of reentering information.

  • Receive or generate Building Information Modeling (BIM) files and skip the takeoff process altogether by easily importing and automatically populating an estimate with cost items and quantities.
  • Use impressive visual assemblies and user-defined assemblies to verify data and see your job come together – and drop graphics into estimate to show clients a clear, colorful picture of their investment.

For specialty trade contractors, the software performs calculations and extensions automatically, and includes multi-level breakouts, comprehensive databases, and reporting functions.

Sitework and excavating contractors require right-fit features, too! Whether you need to measure cut and fill, or takeoff curb runs, fencing, silt fence, or count items like manholes, catch basins, and inlets, there is a solution for you in Viewpoint For Estimating! This solution helps earthwork contractors to increase accuracy, save valuable time, and minimize the possibility of costly mistakes.
