A product within its MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) estimating portfolio, Trimble said the AutoBid Mechanical solution represents decades of specialty trade knowledge cultivated by the former QuickPen brand, now incorporated within Trimble’s MEP Division. AutoBid Mechanical, a Microsoft® Windows® based solution, is designed for the mid-to-large sized mechanical contractor due to its multi-user capabilities and user-defined automation routines.
“By integrating the Tra-Ser product and pricing service from the newly acquired Trade Service organization we can build on the capabilities of the Trimble AutoBid Mechanical solution that allows our customers to obtain data to more accurately bid a project,” said Pat Bohle, general manager of Trimble's MEP Division. “Combining this new functionality with the ability to import drawings directly from the Trimble PipeDesigner 3D CAD solution, Trimble AutoBid Mechanical helps to eliminate the guesswork associated with the pre-construction process.”
AutoBid Mechanical is available directly through Trimble’s MEP sales organization. The Tra-Ser integration joins other third-party pricing options already present within the Trimble AutoBid Mechanical estimating solution.
