Features

  • Multi-estimator management: Seize complete control and oversight of estimating as all bids, processes, security, bidding and takeoff templates, Estimator profiles as well as branch and divisional priorities are united on one centralized database.
  • Remote take-off: Draw takeoff quickly and accurately on your plans, whether in the office or away. Featuring seamless integration with WinBid, RTO has been designed from the ground up to work efficiently over remote connections so productivity is optimized and never hindered.
  • Change order and alternate management: Create change orders from existing bids, retaining previous information (fully intact) for quick and easy amendments and referencing. Use “Alternates”, to separate any estimate into sub quotes for easy cost breakdowns and provision of optional pricing.
  • Bid success and budget analysis: Track bids, details and their corresponding progress and generate reports that present overall bidding performance and other related statistics.
  • Addendum tracking: Create a bid revision that can provide an unalterable snapshot of the current bid so new changes can be compared to older ones. Previous bid revisions can then be easily referenced and navigated through to see a timeline of adjustments.
  • Drawing management: Enable full plan review with associated takeoff from WinBid on Ipad. Bid Information from any projects that include WinBid attached budgets are available to be downloaded onto the IPad.

Being a long time user of the “Other Software”, there are 3 things that WinBid does not do.

1- Doesn’t take hours to “Convert” drawings. 2- Doesn’t become disconnected from the “other” software 3- Doesn’t get disconnected from drawings/database

After a little getting used to, I can’t see using any other take off software.

The Good…

Too many things to list

The Bad…

Adjustable sized count icons

The only estimating software in the universe that actually has a seemless connection to the accounting software

The Good…

The best feature is the single source database that completely unites your entire team onto common ground instead of everyone having their own data base that they can steal from you

The Bad…

The worst part of the software is that it has an overwhelming amount of reports you can run. After you get your favorites it turns into the best feature
