“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!”
Fire and security estimating software
Estimate security and fire alarm price per point in a fraction of the time
What’s the most needlessly time consuming part of your job? Installing a fire alarm system? Fitting a security system? Or estimating a security or fire alarm price per point? Most alarm contractors would agree that estimates and quotes take far too long, which is why we’ve developed our fire and security estimating software.
RapidQuote is a result of decades of software development experience and input from thousands of contractors in dozens of trades. It makes estimates easy, take offs simple, and quotes quick.
So say goodbye to spending five hours or more pricing up a job, and say hello to a faster way to work with our security and fire alarm estimation tool.
“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%.”
A faster way to price up an alarm job
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.
