FAQs About Construction Estimator Software

Cloud-based takeoff and construction estimating software is technology designed to assist construction professionals in accurately estimating project costs and quantities of materials required for a construction project. This software operates on cloud computing platforms, meaning the software and data are stored and accessed remotely over the internet rather than on local computers, and eliminating the need to work on paper blueprints.

Construction trade subcontractors and general contractors are the primary users of cost estimating software, along with some material suppliers. For contractors, construction estimate software helps them accurately estimate the costs of labor, materials, equipment, and other expenses associated with construction projects. This information is crucial for preparing bids, managing budgets, and ensuring profitability.

Construction estimator software typically works by allowing users to input project details such as materials required, labor hours, equipment costs, and other relevant factors. The software then allows you to calculate the total cost based on these inputs. 

Using construction estimator software offers several benefits, including increased accuracy in estimating project costs, improved efficiency in creating estimates, the ability to quickly adjust estimates based on changing project requirements, better tracking of expenses, and enhanced competitiveness in bidding for projects.

When selecting construction estimator software, consider factors such as the size and complexity of your projects, your budget, ease of use, compatibility with other software tools you use, customer support options, and any specific features or integrations you require. It’s often helpful to request demos or trial versions to evaluate the software before making a decision. STACK offers flexible estimating capabilities, as well as second-to-none training and customer support to ensure you’re getting the most out of your subscription. 

While some construction estimator software may have a learning curve, STACK is designed to be user-friendly and intuitive. Training resources such as tutorials, user guides, videos, webinars, and customer support in the form of phone calls, email, and chat are available to help you get up to speed quickly.
