User Reviews of Estimating Edge

Submitted on July 26th, 2021 by Danny Boyle

For us, being able to keep up with the market and have that cross-platform communication and specifically being able to collaborate with team members in Louisiana is everything. As the market continues to grow in Houston where our office is developing, we get more bids, meaning we add more estimators. I think The EDGE is an indisposable tool for us.
