“I have a mate who is an electrical contractor and he was telling me that he spent three weeks pricing a £200,000 job by hand. I told him that with my estimating and PDF take off software, I started a £700,000 job yesterday and finished it today!”
HVAC estimating software
Simple HVAC and ductwork estimating software
If it’s taking longer to come up with estimates than it is to install ductwork and ventilation, it’s time for you to download some simple ductwork and HVAC estimating software.
Traditional take off methods can take you up to five hours, especially once you take into account all of the administration work you need to do before you even begin scaling.
There’s sorting through tender folders and ZIP files, identifying the correct drawings and plans before comparing them to make sure the architects and designers haven’t had a change of heart. Then it’s off to the printers to have the full scale drawings reproduced, before you can get down to the process of scaling ductwork, counting up the required ventilation components, and finally working out your costs and prices.
Even worse, this traditional estimating method is expensive. Print costs soon mount up, and you’re working for free unless a client accepts your quote and hires you for their ventilation project. So we designed a better way of doing things. RapidQuote’s simple, easy-to-use residential HVAC estimating software
“As much as I would hate to help any of my competitors, I have to completely endorse RapidQuote in all that it offers for a business. Our quotation rate has increased from 50 to over 200 quotations per month.”
“RapidQuote is a lifesaver. It’s so easy to use, I just open the drawings and within minutes I have scaled, marked and priced up all my materials and labour. It has increased the speed that we can win work four times over, at least.”
“At last, take-offs for the 21st century! After years spent marking up drawings with highlighters and producing takeoff sheets, this is a revolution in estimating. Just can’t live without it – I now takeoff five projects in the time it used to take to do just one.”
“RapidQuote easily saves me 90% of my takeoff time, so it’s extremely useful for projects that need a quick turnaround. Brilliant software that is so easy to use.”
“Now, overall from top to bottom, RapidQuote’s software saves me about 70% of my time, and that makes an amazing difference. Quotes that took me five days before now take me less than two days, and I’ve only been estimating since January.”
“I work as an estimator Monday-to-Friday, 9-to-5, and your software and support is first class. I can takeoff and price well over 10 drawings in less than an hour, this used to take me half a day before! I just love how simple it is.”
“We used to do takeoffs with a scale rule and a pencil which was very time consuming and now we have a much quicker takeoff time. We only spend around 1 – 2 hours doing takeoffs with RapidQuote’s software and before it used to take us about 5 or 6 hours.”
“We used to have a three or four-process estimate which was over-complicated, but now we have a simple, one-process estimate. We definitely recommend!”
“Time saving is the biggest advantage for us by far. RapidQuote saved us about 80% of our time and increased our productivity 50%.”
