Transform the value of your estimator’s time and the business value of your estimate

“Causeway Estimating has had a direct bearing on an increase in our turnover and win rate, has enabled me to double my workload and has helped increase margins by up to 5%. The system pretty much paid for itself instantaneously.”

Features
Estimating

Estimating is a fully analytical estimating software system that is flexible and easy to use, providing true-multi-user operation, improved productivity, and enhanced accuracy. Drill-down functionality through all data structures allows the user to see where values are located within the estimate, thereby exposing potential risk items.

Estimating supports all industry standards for electronic import of BoQ data (CITE, Excel, CSV, TXT etc.) with advanced Excel import functions to accelerate the process of importing estimate data from source documents.

An advanced find is built within the Estimating system, allowing the search of previously priced items and resources. These items can then be copied into a new project via drag and drop, providing a rapid way of re-using previously priced “similar” items. As a result, previously priced estimates immediately become a database for use in the future.

Tender Register

Tender Register provides list of estimates priced in the system, and allows the creation of reports by date, estimate type, and status (won, lost, pending etc.). This helps with the regular reporting of tender throughput in the estimating team.

Report Portfolio

Report Portfolio provides summary of key estimating data into a single excel spreadsheet, each worksheet within the spreadsheet will contain key reporting information such as tender adjudication values, summary of resources used in the estimate, summaries of subcontractor and supplier quotation comparisons, etc.

Spreadlets

Spreadlets increases productivity further by allowing providing the ability to link spreadsheets to Causeway Estimating. Any changes made in your spreadsheet are instantly reflected in the estimate, making complex calculations easy and your workflow more flexible. Estimates can have one or many Excel spreadsheets, which can be linked to individual items or any combination of items/spreadsheets.

eTender

eTender, which allows businesses to send and receive subcontract and supplier enquiries, automating not only the sending out of the enquiries but auto-notification of changes, reminders and supplier queries. Tender returns are also returned straight into the estimating comparison view. In fact, eTender becomes the estimator’s virtual assistant.

BIMMeasure

BIMMeasure allows integrated measurement directly from models and drawings in 2D, 3D, and BIM formats. The iTrace function speeds up the process by automatically detecting whole lines or areas. Causeway Estimating provides a drag and function, thereby eliminating the need to re-key items between platforms. BIMMeasure supports dwg, pdf, jpg, tiff, bmp, ifc and many other drawing file formats.

Analytics

Analytics gives you complete graphical visibility of your live estimating data. Tailored dashboards help your business understand the key performance indicators of the estimating process and pinpointing efficiencies. This tool can be used to create graphical chart style reporting such as tender win rates, value of work won per month over a 12-month rolling period, etc. All of which assist with the running of an engaged and successful estimating team.

CRM Integration

Estimating can integrate with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. The CRM system can obtain relevant data directly from your estimating teams, Causeway Estimating server. This avoids any duplication of effort entering data into both systems, and also improves efficiency.

Construction industry database libraries

Construction industry database libraries can be supplied, fully resource priced in SMM7, NRM2, CESMM4 and MMHW formats. It’s also very easy to create your own bespoke library content from previously priced estimates in the system, and through import of pricing data from other sources.

Valuations

Valuations is used by surveyors and commercial managers to import data directly from Estimating with Excel-like functionality, enabling fast production of client, internal and sub-contractor liability valuations. Automatic production of anticipated cost information supports monthly CVRs.

Planning Integrator

Planning Integrator allows estimating data to be mapped to the project plan structure and placed directly into Primavera P6 (and coming soon to ASTA PowerProject), providng an integrated cost and schedule baseline programme.
