CostOS Estimating Standard Edition 1.5
Publisher's Description of CostOS Estimating Standard Edition
" Cost estimating software for construction management. "
- From Nomitech Construction Estimating
CostOS Estimating enables Cost Estimators to build cost estimates quickly and accurately. It "catches" the experience gained from previous estimates and enables the user to quickly build new ones based on previous already estimated items.
A construction company can build a network of suppliers and subcontractors, keep a record of the cost efficiency of its equipment fleet and maintain a database with cost rates from different geographical areas.
With CostOS Standard you can easily build a database with all the cost data needed to rapidly price your projects. Pricing more jobs means you get more offers from suppliers and subcontractors. It also means that you get to know the different rates between different geographical areas and countries.
As you are undertaking more projects you can easily judge about whom of the suppliers or the subcontractors is a reliable one and who is not. You get to know the labor and equipment rates and their productivities.
You also get to know the best combination of labor and equipment to perform specific tasks. All this data is key for your business and it grows as your business grows. It is what NOMITECH defines as your experience. CostOS Standard is the ideal tool to capture your experience and assist you in estimating the cost of new projects more accurately.
Knowing the accurate cost of a project is not always enough. You need to have the correct analysis of the total cost. The analysis must be crystal clear to you and your partners, easy to follow and check. This is what CostOS reports do. With powerful, dynamic reports you can present the analysis of your "efforts" the way it should.
