Master Entry Screens


Over the last 15 years, I owned and managed a medium-sized underground construction business. It was sold in 2000 to a large publicly traded company in Florida. Our company specialized in gas transmission, gas distribution pipeline work, communication, electrical conduit, water main, water services and sewer pipelines.I have been working in this Industry for over 30 years. In those 30 years, we have seen our market become more and more competitive. In order to stay ahead in business, we needed to be more efficient, more profitable, and more innovative. As a result of this, I was forced to come up with inventive ways to stay ahead.

Like everyone else, my first goal was to increase sales. This shifted my ideas to the estimating department. At the time I started this project, the estimating department consisted of one person: me. I was already too busy to add more estimates to my schedule, but I needed to do it somehow. My success ratio was that of 30% of the jobs that were bid, a contract was awarded. One way to increase my success ratio was by lowering my prices. I was forced to ask, "Why more work for less money?", and I concluded that was NOT AN OPTION! The alternative was to increase the quantity of jobs estimated. I then realized I needed to be more efficient during the bidding process. I searched for several months for an estimating software system that would be conductive to our business. All attempts to succeed in this vein failed, thereby leaving me with my only alternative - to develop my own software.

After successfully selling my construction company. I am now offering this Estimating Software solution to the public. I am confident that it will help your business as much as it did mine.

As I have said for many years: "All Successful jobs start with a successful estimate."
