Estimating – How it Works
Data transfer from estimates is managed quickly and seamlessly. eSUB allows imports of cost codes, costs by systems/phases, contracts, vendor information, project info and bid amounts from your estimating system. This process eliminates duplicate data entry and errors, and increases accuracy and profit margins.
eSUB utilizes estimating information as a benchmark to manage project costs and productivity through several in-depth reports. For example, eSUB’s Percent of Efficiency reports utilizes estimated hours against used hours to determine labor efficiency. Additional reports such as cost-to-complete and cost summary reports empower the project manager to proactively tracking and compare budgeted costs against actual costs to make strategic decisions to improve project delivery and profitability.
