Use Costimator, cost estimating, quoting and process planning software and save time.

Estimators who constantly repeat steps during their estimating process can tremendously increase their speed (as well as accuracy and consistency) — if they use cost estimating software designed with macro functionality.

Macro = set of instructions or tasks performed in sequence by a computer.

From estimate to estimate or even estimator to estimator, a manufacturer’s estimating team is likely to duplicate hundreds of steps – daily – whether they make the same products or not. For example, when they estimate a drilling operation, they still calculate Continue reading
