Product Details

What is B2W Estimate?

B2W Estimate software for heavy civil construction estimating and bidding designed to enable contractors to bid with speed, accuracy, and strategy. Users can pre-populate a centralized database with cost data and structures for labor, tasks, materials, and equipment and use these building blocks to complete bids.

B2W Estimate boasts enterprise-class performance and scalability in combination with a Windows look and feel and construction logic. Pay-item, WBS, or hybrid bids can be completed, and multiple estimators can work on a bid simultaneously. Additional features include mobile estimating, vendor and subcontractor management, and cross-bid analysis and reporting.

Within the B2W Software ONE Platform, the B2W Estimate can communicate detailed job information directly to B2W applications for scheduling and field tracking. The software also integrates with DOT electronic bidding systems and more than 30 accounting/ERP platforms including Viewpoint, Oracle, Dexter + Chaney, Foundation, and QuickBooks. This is in order to eliminate redundant data entry and errors.

All estimators/salespeople use the system, as well as administration and construction. It captures logic and costs in building the estimate, then allows management to view and adjust margins. It also allows us to compare what will most likely be done, versus engineers' sometimes overstated quantities. Construction personnel can view and approve of the estimate before it's released, creating buy-in on the estimate before it becomes a sale.
  • Allows management to update costs for each individual item, equipment, labor, PR taxes, benefits, materials, etc.
  • Allows management to see how aggressive estimators have built an estimate to evaluate risk.
  • Allows monthly changes in fuel prices and liquid asphalt to quickly update the system for all.
  • Allows management to override margins for overhead and profit to match backlog and need for work versus budget.
  • We request changes to the software as issues crop up and the B2W process changes as needed.
  • A time-out function should be added to knock dormant users offline and allow other users access to the limited number of licenses the company owns.
We are long-term users of the B2W system. We believe it is the best choice for paving contractors. It is easy to learn and continues to offer even deeper ability as estimating prowess grows. The system allows us to update quotes that were given in the past and to stay on top of our costs as changes occur, so our data is up to date and accurate. Know your costs and you can make money!
