About B2W Estimate

B2W Estimate software for heavy civil construction estimating and bidding enables contractors to bid with speed, accuracy, and strategy. Users can pre-populate a centralized database with cost data and structures for labor, tasks, materials, and equipment and use these building blocks to complete bids. B2W Estimate provides enterprise-class performance and scalability in combination with a Windows look and feel and construction logic. Pay-item, WBS, or hybrid bids can be completed, and multiple estimators can work on a bid simultaneously. Additional features include mobile estimating, vendor and subcontractor management, and cross-bid analysis and reporting. Within the B2W Software ONE Platform, B2W Estimate can communicate detailed job information directly to B2W applications for scheduling and field tracking. The software also integrates with DOT electronic bidding systems and more than 30 accounting/ERP platforms including Viewpoint, Oracle, Dexter + Chaney, Foundation, and QuickBooks. This further eliminates redundant data entry and errors.

Chicago Heavy....Highway

Pros

Easy to put together private estimates that require a professional quote.

Cons

The program has many features, figuring out all of its functionality takes time (not really a con).

Fantastic!

User friendly, as long as your costs etc. are constantly updated

An undo button would be great! Also, a trucking global edit would be extremely helpful.

Potential is there

Pros

The best thing about B2W is how the different modules communicate with each other. Estimating flows into Track and Schedule to reduce redundancy.

Cons

There is a long learning curve to adapt to using this product. Setup is seemingly easy until it creates problems later and you have to start over. Not enough training is provided with the product and the charges incurred for additional training and setup is painful.

Continues to perform as expected. Easy to navigate around after becoming familiar with...

Standardized bidding and job set up process across the company. Also provides place for easy review of bids at all levels of management in various locations across the group of companies.

Pros

Level of control over all aspects of the bids. Also the ability to break down information in various formats for easy review and analysis. Conditional formatting allows to catch anything that may be an issue at a quick glance. Numerous reports built in to cover a lot of aspects of the bids.

Cons

Inability to create custom reports in house. Also with concurrent licenses not having the ability to pull a license back from a user has been a challenge. The user may have remained logged in even though they are not using the software preventing others ability to access.

Estimating Software

Once you have built a task you can update from time to time.

Pros

Was easy to integrate from a different estimating system

Cons

All reports have money on them, overhead, profit, and cost. Cannot give this to field people.
