Companies in the Commercial Construction Industry have limited resources for managing the cost estimating process. Some struggle to stay organized by relying on basic software like Microsoft Excel and many paper files to price a job. CostOS™ construction estimating software manages projects 100% and integrates all of those functions into one source.
Data can be sourced locally (historical), online (RS Means, Richardson, Spons etc.) or from a conceptual database. Quantities can be measured manually or from the 2D/OST, 3D/BIM, or GIS takeoff solutions embedded within the software.
Oracle recommends CostOS as their preferred solution worldwide.
Standardize Your Estimating
CostOS doesn’t link to anything – it combines it. CostOS has a bi-directional interface to Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Project and Primavera P6. The export to Excel retains the Group Code and WBS structure of the estimate and retains the formula links. CostOS will cost and resource load the P6 schedule, enabling the estimator to begin pricing immediately. Changes to the schedule can update the estimate or vice versa. Touch it once!
