July 16, 2019

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – With the goal of further simplifying the estimating process, InEight® Estimate now has a ribbon-based user experience aimed at pricing bids in even less time. Along with the new navigation, Estimate’s new interface allows you to conveniently work across multiple monitors, opening every job in its own window to compare estimates side by side and drag and drop data between jobs.

“After 20 years in market, InEight Estimate is an extraordinarily robust tool and we keep finding ways to refine it based on suggestions and feedback from users,” said Rick Deans, executive vice president of industry relations. “Version 19 is no exception. There are a variety of user-requested changes in this release, including new templates, cost item assembly enhancements and the ability to enter unit or total prices for sub/vendor quotes.”

In the version 19 user interface of InEight Estimate you can now add, delete, rearrange and relabel commands to create and define new layouts to share with other users and precisely match organizational bid development and review processes. Fully customizable layouts allow estimating groups to promote consistent bidding practices across dispersed teams.

As the flagship software application formerly known as Hard Dollar, InEight Estimate is now part of a larger portfolio of construction project management software that streamlines planning and execution of all phases of the capital project life cycle.
