Benchmark Estimating Software

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.

Pros

Benchmark Estimating Software

  • Progress Claims
  • Standard quotes
Chris van Vuuren | TrustRadius Reviewer

Premier Construction Software

  • Job Dashboard gives you a great summary of that job at a glance. I can even pull direct reports based on the fact that there are drill-downs.
  • I can go right to the receipt with the GL report drill-down capabilities.
  • Workflows make the product accessible from anywhere for approval when I have people on the road.
  • Dragging and dropping reports to in AP will then go to documents under the job it is attached to.

Cons

Benchmark Estimating Software

  • I haven't found anything yet. Benchmark is constantly evolving and adding new processes, I believe it keeps up to date with what it's users want.

Premier Construction Software

  • We would love to see the interface continued to be improved visually and made more customizable.
  • We would like a reporting feature for the Sub Pay App automatic email delivery. This will help us keep track of links that are not getting to our subcontractors.

Alternatives Considered

Benchmark Estimating Software

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.

We came away from Sage 100. We looked at Computerease and Foundation among a few others. These two were looked at most seriously.

Return on Investment

Benchmark Estimating Software

  • Benchmark has created standardisation in quotes and tenders.
  • Created standard progress claims.
Chris van Vuuren | TrustRadius Reviewer

Premier Construction Software

  • Jonas has positively impacted our Accounts Payable and Receivable department by making tracking and processing organized and streamlined. Previously we were having to track invoices and payments through emails and various formats. We are now able to connect each AP or AR invoice to the job and subcontractor, keep track of the billing due dates, and have all the paperwork generated from Jonas.
