Construction Estimating Software With Better Functionality!
Our construction cost estimator allows you to work on any residential or commercial project, whether big or small. You can make your estimates as detailed as needed. You can create job or estimate templates, which can then be cloned for a similar job. You can delete estimates or rename them. You can export a job file and import that job file into another computer with the export and import buttons. The app has a folders button that allows you to create, rename, or delete folders to organize your job files. The move button allows you to move job files from one folder to another. The software allows you to search files by hitting the find button, by either selecting the radio button to search by name or date, if you do not remember the job name. This allows you to share your bids with anyone by emailing them as an attachment or sending a link for the recipient to view and print!
Any time there is an update, the update button turns green, triggering you that an update is available and all you need to do is hit the update button. We have a feedback button which automatically sends our tech department your questions or concerns.

Construction Estimator Available for Mac Books, NOT just Windows!
The other takeoff and estimating software companies do not offer their products for MAC. Sadly, Mac users have been an underserved market, until now!
A vast majority of the takeoff software companies are sold just for desktop computers running Windows operating systems. To give the appearance they offer Mac users a solution, they utilize the cloud. The fact is, they do not have a true estimating software for your Mac book. The competition has not fooled you nor our developers with their slick marketing. If you have used their products, then you have experienced firsthand the challenges and slowdowns using their cloud product. Cloud based software is much slower because it uses the internet, to communicate with a cloud server by sending all the commands back and forth.
Thanks to our developers, we have created a state-of-the-art hybrid estimating software that combines the best of both worlds; combining the processing speed of your device with cloud integration. This results in the best possible application. We integrated both, a locally installed application with cloud-based features within our software.
With any construction estimate there is high volume of data being processed in the back ground. Since our application is locally installed, the advantage for you is that you will experience much faster speeds compared to the cloud-based systems. Another advantage with the fact that Pro Bid Apps gets installed locally, strictly working on your computer’s processor, it is much better at handling the amount of data and commands that are being done.
Another disadvantage with those other construction estimators using the web is besides the slow downs, is you cannot work if the internet is down or you are working remotely and can not access a Wi-Fi connection.
The web is best suited for cloud integration functions. Our supplier quote system with its web-based RFP process is the perfect solution for integrating pricing with your suppliers.
The other software companies that have been around for a while are using 15-year-old technology and have not enhanced their systems because it is just too expensive. Our construction estimating software is cutting edge technology!

Our company has deployed a family of construction estimating for every trade contractor. Our series of trade applications was specifically built for each individual subcontractor with a focus on their industry.

This is a drywall calculator and so much more. No other calculator on the market can be installed on 3 different devises for no other additional licensing fees.

Various Contractor Estimate Reports
We have the best reports with our software. The software comes with a built-in industry database for material, labor, and equipment items that can be edited to meet your needs. You can easily add or delete material or labor items.
The software automates the completion of your bid and has fields that you can add up to 15-line items to cover items that are typical for a bid submittal such as a scope of work, bid exclusions, and notes regarding your bid. Most of the other construction estimating packages you must purchase a report builder or a report writer in order to have this feature. Or the other challenge with the other estimating programs is you must write your bid in a stand-alone word processing software such as Microsoft word. Our software totally integrates your bid proposal. Your bid can be emailed directly from the software to your customer either as an attachment or a link for them to download.
Pro Bid Apps is a Software Assisted Services company based in the United States. Our focus is building the best takeoff and estimating software. We do not bundle project management tools nor accounting with our estimating software.
