• Overview
    • Trimble Accubid Classic is the original full featured electrical estimating software solution that facilitates the complete construction workflow, from electrical estimating to purchasing, project management and billing. Installed as a client solution only, Trimble Accubid Classic is powered by a comprehensive material database with over 33,000 items and 9,500 assemblies--flexible enough for any sized project. 

      In today's coordinated BIM environment, it's imperative that contractors find ways to seamlessly translate data from one task to another and reduce data re-entry. Electrical estimating data used to develop bids should become the foundation for the rest of the construction workflow.  

      That's the power of Trimble Accubid Classic, the original full-featured electrical estimating software system designed especially for electrical contractors.

      Create estimates from a comprehensive database that includes over 33,000 items and 9,500 assemblies that let you create custom project-specific assemblies on-the-fly. Each item includes labor units, labor factors, labor tracking codes and cost codes.

      Once you’ve won the job, use Trimble Accubid Classic’s powerful, flexible tools to drive data from purchasing and change order management, to project management, billing, and accounting without additional data entry.

      Trimble Accubid Classic is best suited for contractors bidding on medium to large commercial, industrial, institutional, manufacturing, treatment plants, or multi-unit residential projects.
