Professional looking quotes, detailed cost breakdowns and intelligent reporting are therefore important to the company, which is why the BuildingWorks has proved such a hit.

“We’ve used various estimating packages before, but BuildingWorks really meets our needs.” Joe explains. “It’s a very good package and very easy to use so I’m happy I changed software. We particularly like the simple approach to the whole system system and is the easy editing makes a huge difference.”

Instant professional quality Bill of Quantity reports

 “The automatic reportscosts, schedules, quantities, profit analysis and so on – are really valuable, allowing us to closely scrutinise our margins.”

One of the early adopters of the Estimate Professional module, JD have since upgraded their subscription to Estimate QS.

“The facility to get instant Bill of Quantity reports directly from the estimate, is very useful for us. An excellent solution.”
