Implementing DESTINI Estimator in a Traditional Timberline Shop
Brent Pilgrim, DESTINI Applications Director at The Beck Group, shared the story of his company’s decision to switch to DESTINI Estimator after more than 10 years with Timberline as their primary estimating software.
The practical reasoning behind this decision included increased continuity with DESTINI Profiler, which The Beck Group is currently using, ease of use, and financial savings. Brent also identified the less apparent, yet very compelling motive: Estimator is forward-thinking in its use of modeling estimation, making it the ideal tool for an innovative firm like The Beck Group.
Brent and his team are currently working through a detailed implementation plan to get DESTINI Estimator off the ground at all locations within six months. The process includes training preconstruction teams at each regional office on functionality, followed by ongoing support and database development simultaneous with the integration of Estimator. Estimators will access the database in real-time on a secure network and even directly recommend changes to the master database.
For Brent, a successful implementation should come from both the top-down and the bottom-up and is a focus he has included throughout the assessment, planning, and ultimately, implementation process.
