Benchmark Global Pty Ltd

I have used it for bulk earthworks, for roadworks, stormwater drainage, sewer reticulation, water reticulation, and associated works. It's easy to use a process called subcontractor manager to get multiple sub-contractor prices into your estimate for quick comparison, then pick the one that you really want to use in the estimate. It also has a process called auto allocation which can almost fully automate your estimating process, bringing in Items from the library that match the items in your bid. Haven't found a scenario that it's less appropriate, it all comes down to how detailed you set up your initial item library and resource library.

eTakeoff

eTakeoff for Multinational Construction companies has a challenge to overcome with the communication of package between shared resources, shared folders that came from the Server Solutions and also to declare new information without disrupting the pace of work from one to other estimator. Needs to cover the compression format view for Terminal Server users

eTakeoff

  • eTakeoff for Construction companies that work with client-server architecture the experience for the end user can be rush between lag or slowness to access to the shared folder resources within WAN access, VPN SSL or IPSEC connections
  • eTakeoff can presents several tips and tricks to share project traces, common access for all the estimators can be overwhelming in case that the main shared folder is not set.
  • eTakeoff requires at least 100 Mbps for remote branch office to connect to Terminal Server station. The format and consult method of shared configurations and footprints can drain the network bandwidth.

      Alternatives Considered

      Benchmark Global Pty Ltd

      I have always found that Benchmark allows for a more rapid compilation of the estimate through the library system. It can also allow for easy duplication of an estimate for a second stage etc, using the original rates in the resources, or at a click of a button, reverting to updated resources from the library. I have found that other systems rely on a great number of spreadsheet type operations that can easily be changed in the estimate and can lead to errors if copied to another estimate.

      eTakeoff

      eTakeoff is a software with only one basic function which is project measures and this is a prominent differentiator. Taking measures in Revit it requires a lot of more steps, so eTakeoff is a single task software, that performs it's single task really well.

      eTakeoff

      • I strongly recommend to declare a design and scaling plan before making the purchase the eTakeoff Basic license has several limitations that will drive you to make a forced upgrade before even kicking out the app for the estimators
      • Affordable at a regular cost considering that Autodesk Solutions like Revit will be a much higher fee per services.
      • The ROI can be achieved after the first 6 months of the initial set up of traces, custom settings and list of items to be used on the construction project.
