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.

SafetyNet

SafeyNet is well suited for tracking safety on construction projects. It is intuitive to use and can compile reports on users and reports, as well as, subcontractors. The reports are helpful for deciding if any risks are posed on a future project with certain contractors. Overall, I would recommend using SafetNet for tracking safety on construction projects.

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.

SafetyNet

  • Maybe an automated safety report can be implemented based on pictures and videos of construction.
  • The interface could use shortcuts to tasks that are being tracked more often.

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.
