Since its launch, EstimatorXpress has revolutionised the way builders produce quotes and estimates and is now the leading estimating software on the market with 5000 users pricing up extensions, new build, conversion and renovation work.
Widely regarded as being the fastest, most accurate and easy to use estimating software ever to be released in the UK, it now helps more builders across the country than any other product. The beauty of EstimatorXpress is down to the way users input the details of the job they are quoting for.
- Simple on-screen drawings
By entering dimensions into easy to understand building drawings it makes estimating really straight forward. Once all the dimensions are in, EstimatorXpress does the rest! (And it is even easier for users of PlansXpress who draw them the dimensions on). A full breakdown of the quote can then be produced in seconds, enabling the user to present their quote in a professional and easy to understand manner.
- Fast. Easy. Accurate
A key advantage of the software is the reduced time spent estimating, allowing for more time on site. Figures show that before using EstimatorXpress, builders would on average spend 4.5 hours estimating a job. After using EstimatorXpress this reduced to an average of 1.6 hours with 80% taking less than an hour!
Users of EstimatorXpress also have a massive advantage over non-users thanks to the quality of their quotes and professional build program. In today’s market it’s not just about the price – builders need to stand out from the crowd.
- Live prices to cost with
In addition, HBXL has developed a unique ‘Price Tracker’ feature which links the software live to the latest trade prices on core building material products. The user also has the option to link to a national builders merchant, as well as regional and local merchants. Each catalogue is kept separately and is only available to those with an account at the relevant builders merchant to keep merchant data confidential and secure.
- Complete control
The software also comes with more than 50 reports, printouts and charts to help users project manage every aspect of the job through to completion. There are Gantt charts and automatic material and labour schedules, profit forecasts and cashflow graphs to chart when labour and materials should be on site, when to order, how much to order, how much it’s going to cost and helps organise subcontractors!
