San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
ProEst, a leading developer of construction estimating and digital takeoff technology solutions, today announced that it has released the latest version of its award-winning estimating software. ProEst 2012 combines cost estimating, digital takeoffs, bid day analysis and advanced integration capabilities in a single solution with one SQL database.
"Over the last year, we have invested heavily in product development," said ProEst President Jeffrey Gerardi. "The result of that investment is ProEst 2012, a powerful, database-driven estimating solution that's also easy to use."
ProEst 2012 provides contractors with a powerful and innovative estimating and digital takeoff software solution that streamlines productivity and accurately calculates the cost of any size project. Features like an intuitive user interface with a Microsoft Office look-and-feel, easy-to-use item and assembly screens and flexible mark-up options help estimators quickly produce competitive bids. Robust reporting features generate a wide variety of high quality reports, like labor reports and estimate summaries for internal use and materials lists for vendors. ProEst even includes newly-developed industry-specific materials databases that deliver industry-specific solutions for all construction trades.
Digital Takeoffs Save Time
Digital takeoffs are built in to ProEst 2012, which gives estimators the flexibility to perform takeoffs on-screen using electronic blueprints and a mouse or using a digitizer. Digital takeoffs reduce takeoff time by 50 percent or more and reduce the cost associated with printing and storing paper plans. By combining estimating and takeoffs in a single solution, ProEst automatically calculates the cost from the takeoff, which eliminates time-consuming manual steps.
Latest Technology Optimizes Interoperability
ProEst 2012 was developed using the latest Microsoft technology, including a SQL database and .NET development platform. This strong technology platform optimizes the interoperability between ProEst and other common business tools. ProEst 2012 is tightly integrated with Microsoft Excel and Outlook, and many construction accounting software systems, to increase efficiencies and eliminate duplicate data entry. Direct integration with leading online plan rooms keeps projects updated with the latest specifications, plans and addendums.
"With its industry-standard SQL database, ProEst 2012 can be used as the best-of-breed estimating component of a company's construction management system," Gerardi continued. "This technology platform will also allow us to release an enhanced version of ProEst on an annual basis."
ProEst 2012 is available in three affordable subscription-based options: Standard, Professional and Enterprise. Each estimating software subscription provides worry free maintenance that includes unlimited telephone and e-mail support, along with all product updates and enhancements.
