Software Products - Cost Estimation Systems
We have developed several Cost Estimaton Systems, which can be used as a framework for the development of a more customised cost estimation solution. Each industry has its own set of factors that must be taken into consideration when providing a customer with a cost estimate / quote. Our development experience together with your technical knowledge of the factors required to provide an accurate cost estimate, will combine to form a software solution that will cater for all your cost estimation requirements efficiently & effectively.
Our developed cost estimate system will have the following benefits:
- The calculations will be based on information retrieved from the database (e.g. prices & markup bounds) together with the applicable formulas. The output will be an integrated cost estimate which takes several dynamic factors into account. This will result in an accurate & efficiently calculated cost estimate.
- Automatically generated quotes (in Word or Excel), ready to print or email.
- Multi-user access, allowing several users to quote at the same time. Quote numbers can also be generated, customers easily linked and searched, etc.
- The Centralised database promotes consistency in costs, markups, and prices quoted. Only a single update is needed to implement new costings.
- Access to certain elements / functions can be restricted to specific users (e.g. price updates), ensuring a more secure environment.
- Promotes Integration & system expansion with other departments or tasks related to the cost estimates (e.g. the automatic generation of a Bill of Materials for that project).
