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.
