Overall Satisfaction with Trimble Accubid

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
  • After completing a lot of training, this software can easily allow a lower-skilled employee to set everything up for review.
  • Reduced time for bid reviews as key indicators are easy to review
  • Ability to review old bids to ensure project delivery
I was not involved in the decision-making process to purchase Accubid.
The training packets are thorough and they are easy to understand. Live support is harder to come by, however, I haven't had any major problems that I have needed to overcome. The best support is not needing to have support in the first place. Ease of use makes this mostly not an issue.

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.
