“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!”
Groundworks estimating software
Simply and easily takeoff and measure groundworks plans
Site clearances, digging foundations, laying drainage – groundworking jobs are hard work. But when contractors complain to us, it’s not because they’re getting their hands dirty. In fact, it’s the opposite. It’s because without groundworks estimating software, they’re spending hours behind a desk when they should be on site.
We’ve changed that. For them, and for you.
RapidQuote estimating software makes the whole process of generating an accurate estimate quick and simple. Our software gives you the tools and the technology to choose and organise plans, to measure and calculate areas and volumes, and to work out the supplies and materials you’ll need.
Doing all this by hand takes a long time. Up to five hours. And that’s an average, not the worst examples our customers have told us about. Our groundworks estimating software knocks that five hour task down to a sixty minute point and click breeze.

Life without RapidQuote – five hours of measuring, scaling and drawing.
Life with RapidQuote – four extra hours per quote to win more business, get out on site, or kick back and relax. Which sounds better to you?
“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%.”
Designed to make groundworks estimates easy
Software designers get a bad rap. That’s because people in our industry always like to say they’re “changing the world.”
RapidQuote estimation software wasn’t designed to change the world. It was designed to do one thing, really well: make estimating simple.
That’s what it does. With our tools, your estimating will be easier. Just like using a JCB is simpler and less demanding than using a shovel, RapidQuote is less time-consuming than using a notepad and a scale ruler.
A computer can measure, count and calculate far faster than you can. So let your computer do the hard work. No more printers fees, no more hours of clicking in and out of tender files, and no more copying numbers from plan to page to spreadsheet. Everything on-screen, everything simple, and everything accurate.
Scale and measure areas and volumes with just a few clicks. One more click and those figures are in a pre-formatted spreadsheet. Drop in your fees and materials prices, and the estimate is ready to send.
We’re not just claiming our groundworks estimating software is fast, accurate and simple. We’ve proved it by testing it.
We gave RapidQuote to a leading independent expert from the US and asked him to put it in front of a focus group. They didn’t need hours of training, they just watched a walkthrough and got to work on their estimates.
So what happened? Everyone saved hours on their estimates. Everyone got accurate prices. Everyone said RapidQuote made their jobs easier.
We hear those same things from all of our customers. They save time, their prices are accurate, and our software is easy to use. After you test out RapidQuote in a free guided demonstration, we’ll hear the same from you.
