Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use WinEst as our estimate software across the company. The majority of users are in PreCon but as operations comes in, they learn the system. We chose WinEst for:
1) Its stable background. No more worrying about how markups, escalation, GCs are being calculated. You also remove the common occurrence of breaking excel formulas
2) Ability for uniform reports - takes your deliverables to the next level.
3) Highly dynamic yet organized content manager.

About WinEst

With thousands of users world-wide, WinEst estimating (from Trimble) is considered one of the most powerful database-driven construction project management solutions on the market. It looks and feels just like Excel with familiar Windows navigation, including drop-down menus and ribbon bars.

Behind the covers is a flexible database with multiple work-breakdown structures (WBS) and filters that can be customized to the user's preferences so that estimating data can be sliced and diced and presented in different ways. WinEst estimates can be standardized for multiple project types to reflect the user's corporate brand. The estimate templates extend to the item and assembly level, as well as to labor and equipment rates, including base rates and benefit rates. According to the vendor, this helps firms standardize estimating best practices for all project types and self-perform work.
