Simplified Office Software - Simply Estimating 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.
Simply Estimating has been designed to produce an accurate & consistent estimate.
With its user customized DataSource this application will enable the user to create
quick, accurate & consistent estimates for any construction trade.
Although the sample DataSources (& the examples that are used) 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
with the DataSouce Utilities included in the program.
The Import/Export routines enable a user to transfer estimates to/from a Windows Mobile
Device (PocketPC) or Android Device (phone/tablet) allowing the user to take their estimates with them into the field
for preliminary information, or to check conditions to finalize an estimate.
Updating material/labor prices for an estimate is a must for any construction estimating
software, especially in todays market place. With this in mind the software
has been designed to allow the user to easily update material/ labor pricing in their
DataSources & then update the price of an estimate. The ability to update
an estimates prices from different DataSources also allows the user more flexibility
in their final analyst of the estimate.
The user can build a collection of Assemblys to simplify the estimating process.
With similar types of jobs, such as Replacing a Main Service Panel, an Assembly can
be created that includes all the common parts needed for that type of installation.
Then any time the user needs to estimate replacing a service panel they can include
that Assembly in the estimate and then modify it to the particular circumstances
related to that job. This not only helps to save time for the user, but helps
to ensure that a common item that is normally used, such as a Surge Arrestor, is not
forgotten. An Assembly can be thought of as a Template for certain types
of installations. By creating a collection of Assemblys the user can
deliver quick, accurate estimates with certainty & assurance. Once an Assembly has
been included in an estimate the user can revise any part of the included-Assembly without
changing the original Assembly. Prices for Assemblys and for Assemblys- included
in an estimate can be updated with the users latest DataSouce to insure that the current
prices are used.
Sections can be included in an estimate, and are created & act much the
same way as Assemblys. A Section would be included to help break
down the job into smaller estimates. For example let's say the user needs to replace
the service panel, install wiring for a sub-panel, install landscape wiring, wire
an addition, etc., then the estimate could contain multiple Sections & Assemblys.
This also allows the user to easily adjust the estimate if the customer changes
the scope of the addition, or decides not to have part of the job done.
