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.

Quick Bid is the perfect choice for anyone that wants to put together detailed estimates in a very efficient manner. We price out jobs, including everything needed, down to the screws. It allows you to be very detailed if necessary, or very general by just adding man-hours or allowances.

      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.

      We stopped using ProEst because it was going to cloud-based storage, was getting real buggy. It was also bogging down our servers.
