We are pleased to welcome Building Data & SysQue to the Trimble solution suite - Learn More.


A winner of the 2013 Constructech Top 50 Products Award, Trimble® Accubid Enterprise is a server-based, spec-driven estimating platform for electrical, industrial mechanical, and ICT contractors.  As a multi-user platform, harness the power of the rich assembly and material databases that help you to eliminate redundancy and reduce errors for faster, more accurate estimates.

  • Overview
    • Electrical estimating is a science. You need to factor in all the variables, ensure project depth and breadth is properly defined, and account for the inevitable variances that occur in every project.

      Trimble MEP understands that solid mechanical, electrical, and ICT contractor estimating software is imperative so you can remain competitive and efficient. Trimble® Accubid Enterprise Estimating software platform is a server-based, spec-driven solution that provides contractors a robust foundation upon which to bid projects while working to ensure your team completes bids efficiently and accurately.

      Accubid is ideal for companies needing a multiple user input system and will harness the power of the rich assembly and material databases you use. The estimating platform will help you eliminate redundancy and reduce errors, providing the fastest and most accurate estimate possible.

      Every estimator looks for consistency in details, data, and processes so they can develop bids that are accurate and complete. So, shouldn’t your estimating software follow the same workflows?

      Trimble Accubid Enterprise uses logical business rules to emulate and optimize the project lifecycle from bid to completion. The solution makes it easy to develop bids with specifications, assemblies, and item libraries. Users can also take advantage of the intuitive and customizable takeoff pads. Once complete, project managers can use the bid data to quantify changes using the same methodology.

      Trimble Accubid Enterprise estimating software’s innovative, centralized database is especially valuable to large contractors who want to leverage multi-user access capabilities. 


      • Specification Driven Database

        Trimble Accubid Enterprise includes specifications, assemblies and item libraries. The specifications library holds key item property information including material description, attributes, and manufacturer. Flexibility reduces redundancy while providing detail and accuracy without sacrificing speed.

      • Live Extensions and Calculation - with Pivot!

        With the intuitive and customizable takeoff pad, click to graphic shortcuts and quickly select items and assemblies for takeoff.

      • Intelligent Assemblies

        Size and spec-driven assemblies buts the overall number of assemblies required in a bid, eliminating redundancy and reducing errors.


  • Electrical Contractors
    • As an electrical or ICT contractor involved in mid to large projects, the Trimble Accubid Enterprise estimating solution has unique features to accomodate the specific needs of these trades.

      Take-Off Pads

      • More Graphic Take-off
      • Faster, and More Accurate Take-off
      • Lends well to touch screen
      • Shortcuts to Database content.
      • (parts and pieces can be selected easily – not hunting through the database)
      • Shorter learning curve

      Item library (Database) Depth/Coverage

      • Less work on the front end for the contractor
      • The database contains an extensive compilation of material unmatched in the industry for both commercial and industrial applications.
      • Multiple manufacturer support


  • Mechanical Contractors
    • As an industrial mechanical estimator you need a software that works with your business, Trimble Accubid Enterprise features workflows and databases specific to your needs.

      John S. Page Laboring method and correction factors option

      The John S. Page labor units enable you to labor by the joint method. Additionally, we also have applied the applicable material multiplier factor to each and every item.

      Complete commercial and industrial database

      No need to worry about whether you have the right assemblies and parts, our database will help you hit the ground running and keep on moving.

      Calculate Variables in the formulas of parts and assemblies

      You often have questions about the different variables on an estimate our software allows you to work through those variables through powerful quantification formulas.

      Create an entire estimate without exporting to a spreadsheet

      Eliminate errors working in Enterprise, no need to worry about an accidental key punch error when transferring numbers or cell formulas mysteriously no longer working.  Additionally, if there are changes needed in your estimate there is no need to run reports again to export out of Enterprise, simply make the change on your take off.

      Job Specific Discount Groups

      Adjust your discounts easily with our Discount Multiplier function, the one-to-many relationship eliminates the need to obtain pricing on each and every item in the takeoff.

      Quick method of adjusting net cost on groups of items

      Saves time on bid day
