An alarm installation estimate takes time and effort, especially when you need to consider the price per point.
First, you need to get hold of a copy of the architectural drawings. Then you need to work out which drawings apply to the alarm system and which don’t. A trip to the printers later, and you’re finally ready to start the time consuming take off process, with all its scaling and manual counting.
It’s no wonder that the majority of our customers say even a small security alarm job can take them upwards of five hours to price up. And those hours add up, as our savings calculator shows.
So we designed estimation software to automate as much of that process as possible – and because RapidQuote lets you do on screen take offs, you’re saving time the second that you decide to estimate on your PC instead of via the printers.
Once you factor in one-click background removal, an autocounting function that can total up your quantities in under a second, and a range of measuring and scaling tools, it’s easy to see how RapidQuote can save you upwards of four hours per quote.
And that’s four hours you can spend on site, or enjoying yourself.
