Proven Material Database
Each estimating program comes with a comprehensive material database priced and ready to use, with labor units, labor factoring, labor tracking codes and cost codes built right in.
Create change notices that reflect the way the contract reads. Include all the miscellaneous, direct, and indirect costs. Incorporate base contract unit pricing into ChangeOrder and save for use throughout the project. Discount or markup material or labor costs by whatever percentage or amount you choose. Choose whether to display or hide your calculations in office or client reports.
Consistent and Customizable Reports
Reusable report styles allow you to produce consistent and professional-looking reports. You can customize your reports for each project and save your customizations for future use. You can determine the appearance and contents of both client and office reports, specify the report title, and even include your company logo. You can preview your reports before printing, and e-mail them right from within your ChangeOrder program.
Project Management Tools
Track changes and subcontractors at a glance. Enter the base bid contract then use the Schedule screen to view the budget-to-date amount and calculate the cost-to-complete as change notices are approved. Export change notice information into project management software or other applications for purchasing or scheduling, or job costing.
Accubid solutions work as part of your team. ChangeOrder and ChangeOrder Pro both support multiple estimators and enable both job and database sharing. Allow your estimators to work on separate change notices then merge them into a master change notice.
Proven Material Database
Each estimating program comes with a comprehensive material database priced and ready to use. The database includes over 22,000 material items and up to 14,000 pre-built assemblies laid out just as you would take them off. Items are available for many different electrical applications including industrial, commercial, institutional, manufacturing, and multi-residential installations. Our proven databases have labor units, labor factoring, labor tracking codes and cost codes built right in. Both competitive and NECA labor units are provided.
Create custom project-specific assemblies on-the-fly for fixtures, gears, controls, etc. Dynamic takeoffs automatically calculate required quantities for each component in an assembly based on the length or count you specify.
Break down takeoffs by logical and physical aspects, such as phase, system, area, drawing, and bid item. Adjust labor during takeoff to account for various installation conditions. Filter the audit trail to display only those takeoffs that match the current selected takeoff breakdown. Present the change notices in a format easily understood by both the engineer and the owner.
Our Live Extension instantly calculates every takeoff as it occurs. Quickly and easily sort the extended bill of material by system, area, drawing, phase, bid item, labor factor, sort codes, unit price, or item by single or multiple levels to perform reasonable checks. Sort by system and view total material costs for each system.
