Estimating are very time-consuming. For Bray Building Services this was no different. It took ages to complete and it was almost impossible to give a same-day price. In part due to having to return to the office to do the estimate on a computer. We simplified the process by adding a price list section to the App, meaning each item could be adding in a few seconds.
Also, rather than spending almost an hour creating a bespoke estimate document, they could now create a 5-page document with all relevant details in just one click. The improvement has been so great that they can now sometimes get 3 estimates out on the same day. Whereas their previous best was 1 on the same day.
In the example shown, this estimate pulls together dozens of different materials then groups them by work type and location/stage. Doing this allowed Bray Building Services to quote for all works, without risking giving them a huge single price. Since the customer could opt to remove one or more items or entire locations. This allowed them to achieve higher project prices without risking customers saying no.
