Sage Estimating

Put your best bid forward.

To win more work and ensure the profitability of every project, you have to build estimates with more speed and precision than ever before. Let Sage Estimating do the heavy lifting for you. With features like trade-specific databases, Smart Assemblies, and built-in analysis tools you’ll build more bids with quick precision.

Plus, you can integrate estimating with the rest of your business.

Sage Estimating works in tandem with job cost and accounting in Sage business management software. Then, once a bid is approved, the appropriate data feeds seamlessly from estimating to accounting and job cost. No data loss. No redundant entry. As a result, it’s easier to share project details with your entire team.

 

Speed Comes Easy

Sage Estimating eliminates the drudgery associated with complex calculations and manual, repetitive, and routine estimating tasks. Key features that help you build bids quicker include:

  • Smart Assemblies guide you through takeoff as the system automatically
    calculates costs associated with materials, labor, supplies and equipment.
  • Trade-specific databases provide a quick and easy method for you to add
    cost items into your bid worksheet.
  • Multiple takeoff methods offer flexibility and adaption to your preferred
    style of estimating including digital plan takeoff.
  • Estimating Management Console is a central hub or location for managing
    a variety of system administrative tasks such as security (roles and permissions)
    and much more.
  • Built-in report writing capabilities helps generate organized, professional
    reports in seconds.
