electrical estimating software

Contributor(s): Kara Brosnan

Electrical estimating software is a collection of programs, processes and information that provides electrical contractors with the tools necessary to create accurate and consistent bids.

Electrical estimating software systems generally include the following features:
• material databases
• dynamic takeoffs, which allow users to calculate quantities for each component in an assembly
• instant bid summaries
• project management tools that let users break down bids by physical aspects (floor, system or drawing) and export bids to applications such as Microsoft Project and Excel
• multi-user support, which also lets contractors split a project into multiple jobs.

Electrical estimating software provides its users with a full bid and job phase summary, material list, quote requests, and purchase orders with little data input required. By using electrical estimating software, contractors can complete electrical estimates up to 70% faster than when done manually, according to the firm 1st Choice Electrical Estimating Software.
