STACK provides the tools to create a professional PDF proposal that can be delivered to your customer.
The PDF Proposal displays in the following order:
1) Your company logo
2) Prepared By and Prepared For section
3) Scope of Work
4) Lump sum or Summary section
5) Terms and Conditions
6) Signature line
7) Line-item detail
STACK offers the following default groupings based upon the type of estimate selected.
Unit Cost Estimate:
Plan Name and Takeoff
Material and Labor Estimate:
Cost Type, Plan Name and Takeoff
However, the data can be grouped by any method you wish using Label groups. Examples consist of CSI Code, Phase, Building, Floor, and Room. STACK offers complete flexibility in how you want to present your PDF.
TIP: When using Subtotals and Data Filters on an Proposal with the "Round Adjusted Quantities" option turned on, you may see pricing discrepancies on items with low quantities and a high Unit Cost. To correct this, you can either turn off rounding on the "Edit Properties" Estimate menu or reduce Unit Cost for low quantity, high Unit Cost items.
More information on Label Groups can be found here:
The Summary section of the Proposal PDF can be subtotaled by up to two levels by Cost Type, Label(s), Plan Name and Takeoff. To choose and control the grouping order, make selections in the Download Proposal window. The default selection is a Lump Sum amount, which includes a signature line.
