Simplified Office Software - Estimating/Invoicing/Payroll has been written to be both user friendly & intuitive.  If you have used any Windows-based software the principles will be the same. Unlike many other programs, all information that is entered into an estimate is saved when the Return/Enter key is pressed (The Return/Enter key is used to select data & to end data entry in all fields of all forms.), whenever new data is entered - or existing data is changed, the information is automatically stored in a database.

The Estimating Module included with SOS – Estimating/Invoicing/Payroll has been designed to produce an accurate & consistent estimate.

Although this program was created by an electrician and the sample DataSources have electrical supplies, there is no reason it can not be used by other construction trades by simply creating a new DataSource or by converting your existing database of materials.

Creating & managing your estimates has been simplified by grouping estimates by customer’s names. You can simply type in a customer’s name and a list of every estimate produced for that customer is displayed. Each estimate can be viewed, edited and updated if necessary.

 

Never again submit an estimate where you forget to enter the quantity for a particular item, or add a custom part to an estimate & forget to price it. The estimate is scanned & `blank` or `0` quantity and material-cost columns are highlighted to bring this fact to your attention

 

The heart of any estimating software lies in its DataSource (a collection of materials & associated prices (and optionally the associated labor-units). You can create your own DataSource from scratch, or modify one of the sample DataSources included with the Estimating module. The DataSource is fully customizable and adding Sections, SubSections, and Items has been simplified. You can also convert an existing materials database that you are currently using with the built in utilities that are included.
