MANCHESTER, N.H.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ConEst Software Systems is helping contractors across North America win more jobs with its unique suite of cost estimating software.
“Our software brings down the cost of doing business by enabling faster, more accurate and consistent bids.”
“We call it smart estimating,” said George Hague, president and chief executive officer of ConEst, who will demonstrate his electrical construction software at NECA 2013 (Booth #223, Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.) Oct. 12-15. “Our IntelliBid software raises the bar in estimating with unrivaled functionality exclusive to ConEst that puts users ahead of the competition.”
IntelliBid version 7.1 is the first electrical/data estimating software package that allows users to easily import their custom items and assemblies into the latest ConEst database. This upgrade to the company’s flagship product also includes faster overall performance and bid optimization.
“Successful estimators need easy-to-use, intelligent tools like IntelliBid,” Hague said. “Our software brings down the cost of doing business by enabling faster, more accurate and consistent bids.”
Hague learned firsthand from his early days running successful contracting and electrical estimating businesses that the right tools can maximize profits. That’s why he started writing software. Today, he is an industry icon, and his company is one of the leading providers of fully integrated and proven software solutions for takeoff, estimating and project management.
IntelliBid’s database includes more than 125,000 electrical and data cabling items and 50,000 prebuilt installation assembly kits that expand to over 500,000 options. The software’s intelligence can substitute components going beyond simple find-and-replace using the program’s built-in National Electrical Code® tables to ensure accurate, code compliant, precise material requirements.
ConEst’s SureCount symbol recognition software increases takeoff speed by allowing estimators to quickly generate easy-to-read job total reports, eliminating the need to count and measure from paper drawings. The Autocount feature locates and counts repetitive items for takeoff at an average speed of more than 80 fixtures per second. Rounding out the product offerings, ConEst’s JobTrac project management software helps bring projects in on time and under budget.
“We help contractors submit the best estimates,” Hague said. “Our software makes their job easier.”
