Integrated self-perform scope of work estimating eliminates the need for construction firms to buy and maintain separate software to estimate work performed directly, rather than by subcontractors
Beck Technology, leading preconstruction software and service firm for the commercial construction industry, has released a new version of its intelligent estimating software: DESTINI® Estimator 2017.2.0. In addition to several new features and upgrades for general estimating, this release includes integrated self-performing functionality for estimating of “self-perform” work not performed by subcontractors.
The self-perform functionality is a boon to construction firms of all sizes that may perform certain aspects of construction work on their own – such as concrete or drywall – rather than hiring a subcontractor. The new functionality allows estimators to use the same tool for all estimating, no matter who is performing the work, and includes full production rates and rate tables in the integrated platform for takeoff and estimating. This speeds up the estimating process and eliminates the need for a second estimating software product to handle self-perform estimating, providing even greater return on investment of DESTINI Estimator.
