In the past, the construction company relied on spreadsheets to estimate costs for new projects. As the company competed for larger and more complex projects, the previous approach made it increasingly time-consuming and labor-intensive to create accurate estimates—reducing its ability to bid quickly and competitively.
By selecting InEight Project Cost Management, the company has eliminated the difficulties associated with costing and bidding for new projects. Fully integrated into the company’s back-office systems, the solution allows divisions in different cities to work together effectively on scheduling, procurement and cost-control activities.
Today, the construction company has significantly reduced the time taken to create fine-grained project estimates. The InEight solution also allows the organization to develop critical path schedules within live bids, enhancing the accuracy of its risk, time and cost estimates.
“I find InEight to be receptive and responsive to ideas. Their background has always been in construction and estimating — they are not a bunch of programmers working behind the scenes without input from estimators. They understand the business.”
-Vice President, construction company in Canada
