Trimble Introduces Accubid Estimating Version 5 for Electrical Contractors

Spec-driven modular estimating software sets new standard for electrical estimating.

Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) introduces its Accubid Enterprise Estimating Version 5 with support for electrical estimating, making it the only enterprise class solution on the market today designed specifically for electrical and ITS contractors. The robust, specification-driven estimating software represents a leap forward in estimating technology with job-wide, multi-user support leveraging Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft .NET technology.

The Accubid Enterprise Estimating platform is a next generation framework for delivering productivity solutions for specialty contractors. A key strength of the platform is the ability to leverage data across the life of a project, without the need for disparate systems.

"We're very excited with the version 5 release," said Mark Mandarelli, chief product & technology officer for Trimble's Accubid Division. "It marks the availability of electrical estimating on the Accubid Enterprise platform, delivering job-wide, multi-user estimating with a strong technology foundation. Electrical contractors investing in the Accubid Enterprise Estimating platform are investing in a solution that scales with their business, providing a foundation for today and the future."

"Our specification driven method of takeoff, coupled with the robust SQL-based database, streamlines the estimating process for an electrical estimator, speeding up takeoff while ensuring greater accuracy with less data to manage in the database," said Al Ricci, chief sales & services officer of Trimble's Accubid Division.
