Quick Bid

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.

SmartBid

As mentioned before in some of the previous questions, the confidentiality agreement feature is extremely helpful. I have worked on several projects where it's so early in the design phase that the documents are considered confidential and we are required to get a signed NDA from every person who sees the documents. This feature makes it extremely painless. SmartBidNet is less appropriate if you're just doing a quick cost exercise where you might not need to contact several subs. It's easier to just use email and a cloud sharing program like Box or Egnyte.
