Trimble Accubid is currently being used by our organization as our primary bidding software. It is a database for pricing and winning bids for new jobs. It helps our clients get the best prices and our company to maintain a sustainable and successful project while delivering on our cornerstones of reliable insights, outcomes, and resources.
  • Depth of customization
  • Intergrations
  • Industry specific
  • High barrier to entry
  • Low ease of use / Time-consuming
Trimble Accubid is incredible for when you need to take your time and get a bid out for a job. It allows you to create templates and reuse a lot of information for future work. However, sometimes for a smaller job, it can be a lot of information to enter, which becomes time-consuming when on short time frames.

Accubid Electrical Estimating Software Wins Again

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source
Trimble Accubid is used by our organization as an electrical estimating software. Accubid is the premiere electrical estimating software in the electrical construction industry for commercial and industrial electrical contractors.

Accubid electrical estimating software addresses the ever present need to provide cost accurate estimates for a wide array of electrical projects in a simple and intuitive estimating platform.
  • Provides accurate NECA labor units for materials.
  • Keeps accurate costs of materials through regular updates.
  • Needs to update a data base for new emerging markets in energy.
  • Separation of some supporting materials into more relevant categories would eliminate number of required click through actions.
For a commercial or industrial electrical contractor, Accubid is the go-to solution. Having experienced multiple estimating platforms, Accubid is the least cumbersome and easiest to navigate.

Accubid is too large and pricey for a small commercial or residential contractor and would likely be cost prohibitive to a contractor working in these areas.

From an electrical estimator's perspective

I use Accubid to help organize and produce electrical estimates for our company. While the options and granularity can appear overwhelming, they offer a lot of control and ways to analyze our costs. The learning curve can take a moment to overcome, but once you do, the tools given help produce estimates that allow me to feel more confident. That being said, there are still some tools that I feel are missing.
  • Allows for fine control of inputs and variables.
  • Gives a multitude of ways to analyze data.
  • While the tools provided are great, there could be more to allow more imaginative users to build their own.
  • The user interface is old and clunky.
There are a lot of variables that need to be "built" and kept track of independently of one another in an estimate. Accubid gives me the tools to do as much. I can break out certain scopes of work apart from others, modify those specifically, and view the costs, material, labor, etc. associated with them.
