Want to learn estimating software but think it will take too long or be too complex? Then think again! It takes just hours not weeks to learn and is a lot more straightforward than you might realise – that’s if you’re using EstimatorXpress of course! In a nutshell:
Ok there’s a bit more to it. There are more functions you can personalise. We suggest labour rates, a wastage percentage, inflation percentage (REALLY IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW!!), a profit margin percentage and so on. You can edit those.
And if you want to build up your jobs from scratch rather than from a template, you can do that as well in EstimatorXpress. Why not And if you want to take-off a plan to arrive at the cost, you just need our Take-off & Estimate kit. Watch the short video here.
The EstimatorXpress dashboard automatically analyses your projects for an insight into your business. As each estimate is produced, it automatically gets loaded into the dashboard.
And that’s really all there is to it. Possibly the best way to learn estimating software is to practice on a completed job. You’re familiar with the project. You know the full spec. It’ll be an interesting exercise to see how close the software comes to the amount you paid out in materials, plant, labour and so on. Having said that, with inflation going up and up at the moment you’d need to adjust the inflation percentage to get a like-for-like comparison!
You will be properly supported as you familiarise yourself with the software. And that help includes:
The great thing about HBXL Support is that you’ll be assigned an Account Manager who will check in to see how things are going and encourage you to use the Tech Team each and every time there’s a problem or query. A little and often we always say! They’re friendly and well-liked!
HBXL customers who use our software on a daily basis are absolute ninjas. It stands to reason the more you play a computer game, practice your swing, rehearse your treble 20, the better you’re going to be.
So for the customers who don’t get as many ‘flying hours’ we provide refreshers and more intense training.
When you buy the software outright, your first 12 months includes Support & Updates. After that there’s a small fee to pay each year to access full support on a continued basis. This includes software updates which are crucial if you want bug-free, legislatively up-to-date, enhanced software. Note – subscriptions automatically include ongoing Support & Updates.
