The devil’s in the detail

…and the amount of detail 3D Visual Estimating puts into your quote and estimates is far beyond anything you can calculate manually. Despite the level of information, novices can use it just as easy as IT pros.

How do you use it to add a design and build service?

Already have a set of plans? Scan them into PlansXpress, trace over them onscreen using speedy drag and drop tools then export them and watch as EstimatorXpress automatically produces a detailed and 100% accurate estimate in minutes.

Need to start from scratch? No problem. Drawing in PlansXpress is easy, with 3D model building as you go. The software has in-built building knowledge and draws the detail you expect on your plans automatically. Once you’re happy with the results just export them to EstimatorXpress!

What else makes 3D Visual Estimating design and build so amazing?

Whilst it would be impressive if that were all the software did, we aim to go just that step further. The program almost instantly generates over 80 reports analysing all prospective costs, labour schedules, profit forecasts, cash flow graphs and much more, linking to 1000s of live material prices.

Never thought to take into account security, insurance, wear and tear or wastage? Our software considers everything, right down to scheduling the appropriate amount of time for each task and the likely places for financial dips to occur.

You never again have to worry about over-ordering or going into the red. 3D Visual Estimating software will make sure you know all the hidden costs ahead of time.
