JUST THE RIGHT FEATURE SET FOR SIMPLE ESTIMATING

  • TAKEOFF SHEETS

    TruEst imitates traditional paper takeoff sheets so you can work in an environment you are familiar with while leveraging the power of modern estimating software.

  • SYSTEMS AND MATERIAL PICKLISTS

    System and material picklists contain the most commonly used items which make it fast and easy for you to find items during takeoff.

  • LIBRARY OF 1M+ ITEMS

    Never wait for vendor quotes on piping components again! Price items instantaneously with access to our managed library of over 1 million plumbing and mechanical items from various manufacturers.

  • GRAPHICAL TAKEOFF

    Electronically measure, count, and mark up drawings at the same time. Reduce your paper plan printing costs, speed up your takeoff, and eliminate costly errors associated with manual takeoff.

  • LABOR & LABOR FACTORING

    Create a detailed labor estimate by leveraging MCAA or Trimble’s included industry standard set of labor units. Factor your labor hours by drawing and system to account for difficult field install situations.

  • SUMMARY

    TruEst automatically consolidates the items from multiple takeoff sheets and allows you to review material pricing or labor hours in this summarized view.

  • QUOTE MANAGEMENT

    TruEst compiles quotes from vendors and subcontractors as they are coming in so you can compare the quotes to make the best decision that gives you the competitive advantage.

  • BILL OF MATERIAL (BOM)

    See your entire list of material in one view and group the data by system, manufacturer or floor for procurement, scheduling and project management purposes.

  • BID-CLOSEOUT

    Manage additional cost items, tax, overhead, and markup to calculate your final number as accurately as possible -- helping you to win more bids.
