Build Conceptual Estimates with Your Historical Actuals

Owners can quickly solicit and compare bids apples-to-apples. Additionally, build a database of historical cost and schedule data to inform your own conceptual estimates that:
  • Reduces time and manual effort collecting and comparing bids so you can take on more projects
  • Gives you more accurate and detailed bid information that maintains margins for owners and GCs.
  • Increases alignment with GCs on project expectations and cost and schedule estimates over time without adding a lot of extra steps.
