Overall Satisfaction with Trimble Accubid

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.
  • Accubid allows for accurate pricing of electrical estimates.
  • Accubid's accurate pricing allows for more competitive bid estimates.
McCormick is an accurate estimating solution, but is far too bulky too compete with Accubid. Pricing reports and breakout options in Accubid are far superior to McCormick. McCormick's on-screen take off may be a benefit to some, but not worth the trade off of Accubid's robust suite.

ViewPoint is a small contractor solution that cannot compete on the scale of Accubid.
Accubid support gets a high rating for ability to solve issues when they arise. Accubid's rating could increase if they employed more staff to eliminate wait times once a trouble ticket is submitted. Bugs in Accubid software are rare, and usually promptly addressed by their engineering teams.

Would you buy Trimble Accubid again?

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.
