InEight® Estimate

Cost Estimation

  • Confidently create top-down conceptual estimates or detailed construction estimates including assemblies, crews and production rates
  • Standardize estimating processes using templates, rate libraries, norms and third-party cost databases
  • Easily create project-specific views of the estimate with unlimited WBS structures and user-defined roll-ups
  • Link estimates with schedules in leading scheduling or enterprise resource planning solutions for bidirectional cost-schedule integration
  • Dynamically integrate with scheduling, takeoff and accounting solutions to leverage data and formulas in spreadsheets

Historical Benchmarking

  • Drive confidence with instant validation of estimates against past projects
  • Easily analyze high, low and average unit costs and productivity at the line item or cost code level
  • Define color-coded confidence ranges to ensure awareness of high-risk items compared with benchmarks
  • Turn historical projects and data points on and off to get the most relevant benchmarks
