Estimating can be a laborious and stressful process – it’s a constant to-and-fro with suppliers for pricing especially if you’re trying to stay competitive while maintaining profitable margins. Pulling it all together into an accurate and professional-looking quote can take even longer. If you’re facing these problems, simPRO is the solution.
How to decrease estimating time by up to 70%
From the largest projects to small service jobs, simPRO makes estimating both quick and easy. With supplier price lists and all of your different labour rates at your fingertips, you can quickly and easily compare components and charge rates to make your offer as competitive and as profitable as possible.
If the project is multi-stage or phase, each can be costed separately or as a group then duplicated with any alterations made when finalising.
You can also format your quotes using simPRO’s design templates to make sure your quote looks professional, so putting your proposal together and emailing it is made easy because it’s all integrated in one package.
Because you can template and reuse regular assemblies (prebuilds), and reuse existing estimates and jobs, you don’t have to start from scratch every time. The time saving is enormous. If you’re working from plans, you can import the drawings and do an on-screen take-off using our third-party addon, Planscan.
Accurate Supplier Pricing
Any supplier catalogues or materials list can be imported into the system for day to day pricing. You can then add items directly from your supplier catalogues directly onto your estimate. For larger projects, simply send your take-off list directly to the wholesaler for project prices.
