Construction cost estimating software’s computer software is designed for contractors to estimate construction costs for a specific project. A cost estimator will typically use estimating software to estimate their bid price for a project, which will ultimately become part of a resulting construction contract. Some architects, engineers, construction managers, and others may also use cost estimating software to prepare cost estimates for purposes other than bidding.
With the advent of computers in business, estimators began using spreadsheet applications like VisiCalc, Lotus 1-2-3, and Microsoft Excel to duplicate the traditional tabular format, while automating redundant mathematical formulas
Revolutionary Benefits of using software in estimation are as follows:
With the advancement in technology, many estimation software like Plan Swift, Blue Beam, etc. is used to estimate the different types of projects that not only allow us to estimate the project quickly but efficiently also. Further errors in making calculations were also eradicated due to use of these software’s. Different software also allows us to export the Excel file making calculation easier and error free. No doubt, estimation software’s revolutionized the estimation procedure and making it beneficial for the estimators to estimates the exact estimate of the project. Software also allow us to take off the exact area, length, volume and rebar calculation and thus allowing making more profit.
