User Reviews of HeavyBid

Submitted on July 23rd, 2018 by Hal Fuglevand from Knife River

It’s a good fit for heavy civil construction and it’s a good way to get all your ideas, all your thoughts, all your costs into one place. It helps calculate production quantities and lets you review your costs and generate all the reports you need. You can export to the DOTs or whatever you want to do. It’s really a good fit and to tell you the truth I’m not sure how we’d estimate if we didn’t have HeavyBid.
