America’s best takeoff and estimating software

Fast, efficient and accurate general contractor estimating software

A quote prepared by RapidBid Estimating Software

In a recent university-tested focus group of construction managers, 94% of managers reported that takeoffs and estimates harm their productivity due to using older calculating models. If you aren’t using contractor estimating software for your business’ takeoffs and estimates, you are wasting time that should be spent earning money. Entrepreneurs and contractors in the construction, electrical and landscaping sectors are still doing takeoffs by hand, and this is wasting millions of man hours every single year.

RapidBid surveyed contractors from across the USA to find out how long it takes to prepare a quote for a commercial or residential job. They told us that the average project takes upwards of five hours to takeoff and estimate.

Five hours spent in homes and offices instead of working on the construction site. Five hours spent pushing pencils and paper instead of getting the job done. Five hours of counting, checking and totaling.

Those five hours aren’t even guaranteed to win your tender and result in a project. So you’re not only wasting your time, you’re missing out on money.

With RapidBid, you can have all that done, along with the quantity numbers and final price, in a single hour. Your five hours in the office can now let you bid on 400% more jobs, bringing in more projects and more profits. And that’s per tender. A quick look at our calculator shows how much time (and money) you can save in a single month.

RapidBid estimating software does everything you do for a takeoff and tender, but it does it faster. One accurate and efficient tool that provides you with autocounting, simple scaling and easy totaling. In fact, it’s so easy, you won’t even need to pick up a manual. Just watch one of our walkthrough videos, and you’ll be ready to save time and earn money.

A few clicks and RapidBid scales, colours and counts your plan, giving you an accurate quantity list. One more click and it generates a spreadsheet with your pre-loaded material prices and rates, giving an accurate proposal ready to send to your customer.

Your days of manual takeoffs and pencil pushing are over. Your days of faster, smoother tenders and more successful bids are just beginning.

And the best part is that you can test drive America’s best takeoff software absolutely free. You won’t even need your credit card details to try our tool for yourself.

“I have a buddy who is an electrical contractor and he was telling me that he spent three weeks pricing a $200,000 job by hand. I told him that with my estimating and PDF take off software, I started a $700,000 job yesterday and finished it today!”

“As much as I would hate to help any of my competitors, I have to completely endorse RapidBid in all that it offers for a business. Our quotation rate has increased from 50 to over 200 quotations per month.”

“RapidBid is a lifesaver. It’s so easy to use, I just open the drawings and within minutes I have scaled, marked and priced up all my materials and labour. It has increased the speed that we can win work four times over, at least.”

Takeoff software tested by real experts

RapidBid was built by computer experts, but our contractor estimating software was designed by feedback from thousands of contractors all over the world. We had builders in Baltimore, painters in El Paso and even electricians from England tell us what they needed from our tool. They wanted it to be accurate, so we made it accurate. They needed it to be fast, so we made it fast. And they told us it had to be tested by experts.

So we hired a professor of business psychology at LACCD and asked him to test RapidBid on the real experts – genuine American contractors working in and around California.

He asked contractors from the construction, plumbing, painting and landscaping industries and asked them to estimate the price of a project.

  • It takes an average of five hours to create an estimate
  • Numbers have to be checked and double checked, especially when a project needs a large amount of counting
  • The dollar investment in an estimate was viewed as too high, thanks to printing cost and lost working hours

Then he gave them a trial copy of RapidBid, had them watch our quick and simple walkthrough video, and he asked them to put together a tender for a similar project. Here are those results:

  • A five hour quote now took one hour on average
  • Autocounting and autototalling reduced the need for checking
  • The final prices exactly matched the manual estimates over 99% of the time

Every contractor surveyed agreed. RapidBid saves you time. RapidBid saves you effort. And RapidBid gets the price right.

Not bad for a software tool that costs less than a cup of coffee a day!

How much does America’s best estimating software cost? It actually pays YOU thousands!

An independent university study determined that construction companies lose anywhere from 80,000 to 2 million per year due to problems with estimates. RapidBid costs as little as a couple of dollars per day. That’s less than the average coffee at Starbucks. We have three packages available for contractors, and you can see how affordable RapidBid is for yourself by viewing our pricing page.
