Eque2 is pleased to welcome new customers Focus International and Linxon which have chosen EValuate construction estimating software as the businesses look to use more modern technology and advanced functionality that will support their growth.
Read on to find out more about how EValuate construction estimating software will benefit these companies.
Linxon delivers turnkey electrical AC substation projects. Linxon will undertake turnkey electrical alternating current substation projects related to renewable and conventional power generation, power transmission and transportation solutions. The team manage the project design, engineering, procurement, construction, management, commissioning and after-sales support.
The business was using Excel spreadsheets to produce bills of quantities and did not have an integrated take-off solution which was time consuming and at risk of error. The company generally has large contracts on at one time which can last several years in which they sub work out for certain areas, therefore tracking and managing all areas of the project effectively was important for them.
The business required a solution that would standardise their processes, initially they would require a small amount of users however the software would need to grow with their business as they rolled this out further across the company in the future.
Linxon decided to move forward with EValuate, because the solution met their requirements and they could see how the software could grow with their business. The company was particularly impressed with the integrated On-screen Takeoff tool that would allow them to perform a fast, accurate take-off from all file types, and how live links between the dim sheet and mark-up can automatically populate then revise quants.
As the company subs work out, they opted to include the Subcontractor Enquiry Portal which will allow them to issue enquiries, drawings and revisions to subcontractors, and collate and analyse responses via an online portal.
Focus Internal is a rapidly growing design and construction company that specialise in commercial and residential property refurbishment as well as high end residential new construction, both in London and Cyprus.
Focus was using Excel spreadsheets to manage their bill production with a bespoke take-off solution. As the business was growing rapidly, they required a solution to improve and streamline their current estimating processes.
When going out to market it was important that the solution they chose to move forward with would offer them an integrated take-off, benchmarking so they could compare costs for other trades, and something that would help them compare prices for work they sub out.
Focus looked at EValuate, Causeway and Conquest estimating solutions and arranged demonstrations to help them decide which software package would meet their needs and support them as their business grows.
The business decided to move forward with EValuate Estimating software as EValuate met their exact requirements by allowing them to perform a fast On-screen Takeoff with Live Links between the Dim sheet and the Takeoff that will enable amendments and revisions to automatically update the bill. They could also issue enquiries to subcontractors and collate and analyse responses via the online Subcontractor Enquiry Portal.
Focus will also benefit from having Laxton’s Priced Libraries which is integrated within the software and will allow them to benchmark effectively and compare costs against other trades.
As the business grows, Focus were keen to see that Eque2 could also offer them an integrated Construction Accounting solution ‘Construct for Sage Accounts’ that will allow the to manage the full project lifecycle from initial estimate through to final account, meaning that Eque2 could be their software partner for life.
