B2W ESTIMATE FEATURES

  • Robust, enterprise-class performance

    Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the very latest .NET and SQL Server tools from Microsoft, B2W Estimate provides an infinitely scalable, high-performance platform to run advanced features reliably at high speed and to accommodate future development.

  • Central database – resources, crews, tasks and cost items

    A core advantage with B2W Estimate is the ability to create and pre-populate detailed databases with costs – including default templates of crews and pay items – that can be easily updated. With these building blocks in one place, construction estimators work faster, more accurately and with the same, consistent data.

  • Flexibility – pay item, work breakdown structures (WBS) or hybrid bidding

    In addition to traditional pay item bids, B2W Estimate supports Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) bidding. This allows companies to organize and develop estimates in an unlimited hierarchical form, with visibility into how costs are rolled up and the level of detail at which costing is done. Estimates can be configured to support pay items, WBS levels, or both together.

  • Synchronized mobile estimating

    Estimators can work – with access to resources and items – even when disconnected from the office server. Reconnect, and the new estimates or changes are added on the server. This is a big advantage for companies that want the flexibility to work remotely or download a bid locally for closing during bid day.
