Company History

Cost-OS is the leading, UK-based software company specializing in construction cost estimating.  Their founders are engineers with real-life industry experience and they deliver practical, innovative, state of the art cost estimating software which is rapidly becoming the standard for all markets.  Cost-OS is designed for companies wanting to increase their competitiveness by responding to modern estimating challenges more quickly, with less effort, more accuracy, less risk and with an increased level of confidence.  65% of the world’s estimates are still created in spreadsheets and we understand that people are reluctant to change.  

Cost-OS estimating utilizes knowledge gained through use of Excel and similar programs.  It makes sense to harness and use that knowledge and experience with common functions and formulas created by the user.  These familiar spreadsheet functions enable companies to customize Cost-OS to their own needs and allow estimators to become comfortable and productive with the program sooner.  This customization removes the need for ‘Spreadsheet Compromise’ within a Company.
