Contract Estimate

Construction Estimating and Tendering Software– Corporate

Single or multi user estimating and tender appraisal software. Compatible with all windows platforms and networks, including Citrix and Terminal Server.

Quickly and easily create composite items and rates and save them for future use. The user may work with the supplied priced and resourced libraries or build their own rates libraries.  The software is a real time saver and includes all the copy and paste facilities expected from a true Windows system.

Comprehensive mark-up features provide the ability to mark-up or down any rate by estimate/title/sub-heading or even individual line items. This can be done by a percentage or value. Wastage and overheads can be provided for throughout the tender. The system provides a detailed listing of all mark-up adjustments.

Full resource listings with detailed schedules of all labour/plant/materials & sub-contractor requirements. Advanced costing facilities allow resource changes on a tender only basis or can also apply the changes to the master libraries.

Multiple tagging of library items allows the user to select as many line items as required and then update the take off screen in one action.

Optional automatic titles and sub-headings can be generated from the standard libraries. Choose the take off line items for the estimate and Contractor will automatically create all the titles and sub-headings which can then be amended if required. The user can manually input all titles and sub-headings denoting the sections of the tender if preferred. There is an additional facility to setup a user defined master list of titles and sub-headings.

All estimate details are held on one clear and easy to use screen.

CMS Contractor is supplied with a choice of fully priced and resourced libraries.

Ability to copy and paste from existing libraries for fast build up of new rates and composites.

The system is supplied with a comprehensive list of BOQ output styles from the traditional client layout to 5 column split for internal use. There are many different reports and a report writing facility is also available.

Comprehensive on-screen take-offs and re-measures allow multiple dimension take-off's with annotations as well as allowing for deductions. An easy to use take-off screen that will appeal to any Estimator/Q.S. Also available are digitisers and other digital take-off tools to decrease take-off time even further.

Differing types of estimate can be created and saved as templates. A copy contract facility allows the user to create new estimates very quickly using the template as a base. In addition there is an auto revision feature that makes an exact copy of an estimate and gives it an automatic revision number. This then protects the original contract from being altered whilst also providing information on all the latest revisions and original contract numbers.

Contract status can be specified with detailed notes as well as tender due dates. This information can then be used on the tender appraisal feature which comes included with the basic system.

Estimates are logged on the system by time/date, who created by and any revised time and date. Extensive information is held on each contract and the tender appraisal facility can be used to search by any specified criteria.

Provisional Sums / PC Sums / Preliminaries / Variations / Day Works can be clearly identified for general reporting as well as accounting for in the mark up process.
