Proven Material Database
Each estimating program comes with a comprehensive material database including all the major, current, and industry-leading manufacturers. This SQL-based, .NET, ODBC-compliant database includes spec-driven assemblies – with graphic representations – that are linked to over 1,000,000 items. Accubid's robust database is ready to use and includes labor units, labor factoring, labor tracking codes and cost codes built right in.
Dynamic Takeoffs & Designations
Material can be taken off via mouse with Enterprise's unique, icon-based Takeoff Pad and via on-screen takeoff using LiveCount®. Create smart assemblies on-the-fly where each component is automatically calculated based on length, count or any other variable specified. Graphic images assigned to items or assemblies are displayed during takeoff. Create designations – specialized equipment comprising multiple items as well as incidental components.
Analyze your B.O.M
Accubid estimating programs use takeoff breakdowns (e.g. Drawing, Phase/Floor, System, Area) in a multi-dimensional format, allowing you to view subtotals across breakdowns and in any order. You have complete flexibility and control – re-sort the extension and re-group the bid by any combination of breakdowns. Reassign takeoffs to different areas, phases, systems, alternate bids or separate bids and see the results instantly.

You can also group the bill of materials in the best order to perform reasonable checks. Last minute changes are instantly reflected in the final price, preventing errors and omissions.
Live Bid Summary
Accubid's Live Bid Summary allows you to analyze components of the estimate using ratios and costs per square foot. Create multiple bid summaries or alternate bids, each with a different combination of takeoff breakdowns. Last minute adjustments, modifications, and ‘what-ifs' can be instantly accommodated.
Accubid estimating programs feature customizable reporting for estimating, project management and purchasing. Highlight scope and detail by breaking down the entire bid by logical and physical aspects, and export to popular applications including Excel, MS Project, and ConstructJob, Accubid's project management system.
