Electrical Estimating Software News

  • Software Update: Electrical Bid Manager v10…

    In June 2016, we released an update for our electrical estimating software that added a new takeoff module called Quick Branch. This new takeoff module in Electrical Bid Manager™ eliminates a takeoff step and is a real time saver.

    All Electrical Bid Manager customers that are current on the Extended Service Plan received this update.

    Added Features - Build 06.21.16

    • QuickBranch Takeoff - Allows quick selection and takeoff of device assemblies combined with conduit/wire, or cable runs of any length from your Saved Assemblies in Branch Circuits and Cable modules. View a video of this new feature.
    • New MC Luminary Cable - Lighting and low voltage circuits in one cable. Pricing updated with EPIC Pricing.
    • New program "Themes" gives EBM a new look! Find this setting in Program Settings screen on the Appearance tab.
    • Ability to take off empty conduit with pull line in one step with conduit take-off in Site and Feeders.
    • New database items and updated item UPCs and descriptions.
    • Various modifications to PlanSwift integration for improved functionality.
    • Clear button to remove unwanted items from the Import Spreadsheet. (PlanSwift link only)

    Fixed Features - Build 06.21.16

    • Advanced Substitution bugs; Converting to Cable would use the incorrect Saved Assembly. After converting to Cable, the resultant entries in the audit trail could not be edited.
    • Digitizing item on a different page would return to the spreadsheet instead of item takeoff (PlanSwift link only).
    • Feeders and Site From/To taken off from OST not showing in audit trail.
    • "Edit to Source" Custom Assemblies not recalling "Additional Items".

  • Electrical Estimator Spotlight: WSI…

    We've started a series of electrical estimator spotlights that highlight a companies that has found success with the aid of our software. It often times seems no two electrical estimators are alike. Everyone has their own unique story of how they got started, how they found us and how they have grown in success. We are confident you'll find a few electrical contractors that you identify with and will give you that "light bulb" or "Aha!" moment.

    Jubal Williamson, owner and electrical estimator at WSI Southwest, tells the story of his journey through choosing electrical estimating software and finding bidding success.

    Electrical estimator spotlight excerpt:

    "It tells you what your cost is going to be for the job before you put in your overhead or anything. On the first job, the hospital job, we were within 3 percent of our costs. Electrical Bid Manager told me that it was going to cost a certain dollar amount and we came in 3 percent under that number on that job. That accuracy gave me complete confidence in the program."
    - Jubal Williamson, electrical estimator, WSI Southwest

    Jubal spent a couple years trying to determine how to modernize their electrical estimating with software. Jubal tried a few others and then came to use once he realized what was important to him. Easy to learn, built-in change order tools and accurate pricing were a few features he liked in Electrical Bid Manager
