From tracking your sales pipeline in estimating to helping field construction project management, discover how data management systems in ProEst can produce efficiency with better results.
When it comes to cost estimating and facility construction, one of the wishes we often hear from estimators is the need for easy visibility into their estimating projects. It used to be that estimators simply wanted a better, more efficient way to estimate – though that’s all changing. As technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) has advanced, the smartest companies know that having data analysis tools will bring much more leverage when estimating against the competition.
Speaking of competition – have you taken the time to analyze your competitors, or the construction companies that you aspire to be, or to compete with? If you haven’t, you probably should. Are they operating differently than you are, and are they potentially operating any better? There are many questions construction companies – large and small – should continually ask themselves as competition increases and technology continues to reduce waste in our industry.
We see companies of all sizes who are some of the most Lean, streamlined business operations because they know how to use construction technology to their advantage. What I’m saying is, you don’t have to be BIG to be LEAN. We’ve seen companies of five run more efficiently than companies of 15 or 30, for example. Matter of fact, we’ve seen companies of five run more efficiently than companies of 100+!
One way you can start running more efficiently is to consider your current estimating process and evaluate how ProEst estimating can give you a leg up on the competition. Here are some ways ProEst helps you gain visibility into your estimating process and project data:
