Quote 5x faster and win more business

  • Use the on-screen takeoff tool to scale and measure your plans with just a few clicks of your computer mouse. Your takeoff data aligns measurements from your plans to specific tasks organised by categories. 
  • Because Buildxact is cloud-based software, you can submit material orders and RFQs anytime, from anywhere that has an internet connection.
  • Construction estimating becomes more powerful because detailed line items produce complete, professional proposals 5x faster than spreadsheets. 
  • Buildxact software serves as a quote management tool that tracks quotes in a simple dashboard. See what’s being worked, what’s been sent to customers, and what’s been accepted by the customer.

Gain control and focus on what you do best

  • Record keeping and financial reporting take less time, giving you more time to focus on the actual work done at the job site.
  • Tracking estimates and documents is done online, in a single place.
  • Skills you learn benefit multiple tasks. Change orders are quick and easy because you process them like estimates. Changes import directly into your budget reporting. Because there’s no double-handling of the data, errors that occur with handwritten notes are eliminated.
  • Update your project schedule while processing change orders so that the homeowner quickly sees delays and budget impact.

  • Imagine ordering supplies and planning subcontractor bids for subsequent home builds with the confidence that nothing has been missed. 
  • By tracking actual project costs against estimated line items, past projects make future estimating and budgeting more accurate.
  • Use Buildxact to track estimated costs against your actuals as the project progresses.
