Every Estimator Should Use Pricing Software

February 23, 2018 Shaun Gambardella

As Estimators, we already have enough to remember when accurately pricing a bid. It’s important that our software is providing the most cutting-edge features to keep us above the competition.

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Cost Estimators held 217,900 jobs in 2016, and of those, 1 in 4 worked more than a 40 hour week. This may seem obvious, but with all of the factors that affect cost (reading technical documents, calculating, analyzing, adjusting estimates, maintaining records of reducing cost, working with sales teams to prepare estimates and bids, etc), additional time is often needed to check and recheck pricing data to ensure it’s accurate and up to date.

Pricing software can help solve this time crunch and make your work more efficient.

In this guide, Shaun Gambardella reviews the benefits of adding pricing software to your estimating process. Access yours today!
