Smart Labor® Technology

Our unique Smart Labor® technology allows production to automatically adapt to change based on preset values you determine. This feature is invaluable for every trade. For example, you’re a painting professional and typically paint 6 feet high walls and know your crew will be able to complete 10 feet in an hour. However, if that wall is 8 feet high, your team will need to move a ladder around, increasing the time required. The EDGE Smart Labor technology automatically calculates these adjustments for you, instantly saving you time estimating while ensuring that your estimate remains as accurate as possible.

You’ll wonder how you ever estimated without it.

Construction Estimating Software

Speed, Depth & Accuracy

The first thing you’ll discover when you see The EDGE is that this is one takeoff and estimating software that doesn’t compromise. We’ve spent years streamlining the software and making it as quick and intuitive as possible, but not at the expense of delivering a robust solution with the depth to handle projects of any size and still account for every single nail. That kind of accuracy is how you win bids and maximize your profits. In fact, The EDGE is so comprehensive and precise that we’ve had experienced professional estimators tell us it actually made them better at estimating.

Trade-Specific Tool

Finally, software that can really talk shop. The EDGE is not only designed to meet the precise needs of individual trades, but it comes further customized for those trades with databases of trade-specific materials from the manufacturers you use. Easily customize your software further by adding your own products, labor rates, markups such as tax rates, overhead and profit and even define if specific jobs are bonded, ensuring that your estimates accurately detail the way your business really works.

Mutliple Bid Options or Change Orders

Whether you need to value engineer a bid, create bid variations or prepare a change order, The EDGE can help you envision a variety of scenarios in an instant. Simply copy a scenario and then adjust the materials and labor rates allowing you to create options for your client. The EDGE makes it easy.

Smart Edits

Professional estimators know how things can change. The material that you’ve specified may become unavailable, or suddenly change in price. The EDGE tracks every element throughout the entire estimate, so that any update is made uniformly wherever that element is referenced across the bid.

Built by Builders

The EDGE is the best construction estimating software available. Period. Not just because we use cutting-edge technology, or because we offer the best customer service in the industry. Rather, it’s because we understand your business. The EDGE complete takeoff and estimating software is developed specifically for your trade by experienced industry professionals and top-tier programmers to work the same way you do. This makes it remarkably easy to learn and even easier to use, with hands-on training that will get you up and running quickly.

Focus on Estimating

We’ve been doing this for 30 years. To us, estimating is not an upsell. It’s not a feature on your accounting software. It’s your next job, before there is a next job. It’s something that can make or break your chances at winning consistent work, so we take it very seriously. Making your business more profitable is something we work on every single day.
