Worried about risking time and money on estimating software?
What if you’re actually putting your business at risk by NOT taking the plunge? What if, by delaying, you’re actually costing your business money?
I’ll stop with the dramatic statements. But based on the many, many conversations we have with builders, I’m saying this with good reason.

Having less than 40% of the necessary information can lead to errors, while going beyond 70% is too much time spent on fact-finding.
To get to that 40% milestone start by looking round the rest of the website here, you could have a, much recommended, online demonstration with myself or another member of the team. And if you need more time you can even trial the software for 14-days.
