Company: Trimble Inc.

Product: TruEst

Description: Powered by Trimble, this product was designed specifically for the workflows of mechanical contractors bidding smaller commercial piping and plumbing projects. The software combines unlimited document storage, graphical takeoff, material pricing, and labor into one solution that can be accessed via web browser. The program walks the contractor through the process of creating an estimate step by step, from start to finish, eliminating the need for hours of software training. It comes pre-set with the most common systems and material configurations so contractors can quickly enter takeoff. It features a Trimble-managed catalog of over one million items from various manufacturers. Users can electronically measure, count, and mark up PDF drawings directly in the software while automatically filling in the takeoff sheet during takeoff. The program automatically consolidates items from the takeoff sheets into a summarized view that can be used for getting quotes, then ordering materials from vendors once the project has been awarded. A free 30-day trial is available.
