Project Cost Management
InEight Estimate sets the standard for accuracy, performance and multi-user collaboration throughout the entire estimating process.
- Acclaimed for its flexibility and depth of features
- InEight Estimate can be used to create top-down or bottom-up estimates for projects of any size
Estimate With Confidence
CREATE TOP-DOWN CONCEPTUAL ESTIMATES
or detailed construction estimates including assemblies, crews and production rate
CREATE PROJECT-SPECIFIC VIEWS
of the estimate with unlimited WBS structures and user-defined roll-ups
INTEGRATES WITH SEVERAL TAKEOFF SOLUTIONS
to leverage data formulas and updates
STANDARDIZES ESTIMATING PROCESSES
using templates, rate libraries, norms and third-party cost databases
LINK ESTIMATES TO SCHEDULING TOOLS
such as P-6 or Microsoft Project for directional cost-schedule integration
Benchmark Estimates For Increased Accuracy
DRIVE CONFIDENCE WITH INSTANT VALIDATION
of estimates against past projects
EASILY ANALYZE HIGH, LOW AND AVERAGE UNIT COSTS
and productivity at the line item or cost code level
DEFINE COLOR-CODED CONFIDENCE RANGES
to ensure awareness of high-risk items compared with benchmarks
TURN HISTORICAL PROJECTS AND DATA POINTS ON AND OFF
to get the most relevant benchmarks
We win or lose jobs during bid reviews. We have to able to defend our numbers and understand exactly where our risk is.
We need to be able to create different view of the estimate using alternative structures to effectively communicate to other stakeholders the information in our estimate.
For our commercial building estimates, we need an easy way to pull quantities from onscreen take-off, or even 3D models, to feed our assemblies and parametric estimates.
We need to save time and increase accuracy, and quantify an estimate by importing takeoff quantities from takeoff software systems.
Early on, as we go through funding approval, we need to produce conceptual estimates based only on history and benchmarks, then add detail as the project’s design evolves.
Despite the limited information in the early stages of a project, we need our contractors to supply a conceptual estimate.
