Does your estimating software have these capabilities or are you still working in the past? »
Get a serious boost to your measurement speed using our leading on-screen takeoff software. Measure from scanned, PDF or CAD drawings using simple but powerful on-screen takeoff tools – all without using CAD software. Our construction estimating software CostX® has been proven to reduce takeoff time by up to 80%. WATCH THE VIDEO »
3D / BIM Model
Use the power of BIM (Building Information Modelling) with CostX®, the leading construction estimating software. CostX® has full 3D graphics capability and has the ability to extract object properties and generate automatic quantities from 3D BIM models. All objects within the model can be easily viewed, hidden or isolated using the advanced graphics engine in our on-screen takeoff software. WATCH THE VIDEO »
Use powerful and flexible spreadsheet-based templates to create accurate cost plans, estimates, bills and tenders – all live linked to the drawings and our on-screen takeoff system CostX®, so you can always see what’s been measured where. It is possible to import previous documents to use as a template, access rate libraries, enter codes for sorting and generate reports using the industry’s best construction estimating software.

The unique revision function in CostX® is extremely powerful. When revisions occur, CostX®’s on-screen takeoff software compares the drawings, highlights the changes, creates an audit trail and updates the measurements – the live links do all the work in this construction estimating software.

CostX®’s networking capabilities improve productivity by allowing users to work on the same project at the same time with no need to merge CostX® files or duplicate multiple drawing imports for on-screen takeoff. Other improvements include user flexibility and information management. All of our construction estimating software solutions are also available in standalone and portable licence options.
CostX® provides powerful construction estimating software designed to re-engineer workflow protocols because the entire estimating process is electronic. This means that drawings can be received by email, quantities can be measured with our on-screen takeoff system, the estimate can be generated in CostX®, and reports can then be sent back, again by email. The entire transaction is paperless. Cost benefits of such workflow improvements are far greater than those provided by document management tools alone.
Cost Geometry® is the unique product engine trademarked by Exactal, whereby measurements are directly tied to the elements in the CAD drawing. This approach means products in the CostX® family can deliver unique bi-directional links between the estimate and the sections of the drawing represented. SEE MORE HERE »
