HCSS HeavyBid Testimonial

I feel that HeavyBid has played an integral part in the profitability of our company. It makes estimating easier and more precise and helps us feel more confident that our bids are neither too high nor too low. We’ve been complimented numerous times by clients on the completeness of our bid schedules and our ability to quickly and accurately supply them with cost data and project quantities. HCSS is the best, by far!

HCSS HeavyBid Testimonial

“The product is simple to use and can be understood throughout the company. The estimate can be set up by someone who will never see the job and is standardized enough that every estimator, foreman, manager, accountant, and owner will be able to understand what is being bid and what will be built.”

HCSS HeavyBid Testimonial

“We really like using HCSS HeavyBid because it has significantly improved the accuracy and the consistency of our estimates.

In our previous system of Excel® spreadsheets, we were constantly encountering formula errors, errors that were made in transferring subtotals from one worksheet to another and errors that were made when we would forget to update a material or subcontract price change in multiple locations in our spreadsheets.

Now with HeavyBid, we spend more time analyzing our estimates and less time checking our math extensions. We can update a material or subcontract price in one place and be confident that the update is made accurately throughout the estimate.”

HCSS HeavyJob Testimonial

“With HeavyJob, guys with relatively no computer experience at all are now entering and sending daily time card data instead of driving long distances to deliver paper time sheets back to the office. HeavyJob is easy to use for anyone!”


Testimonials  Jeff Fuerst
  Vice President 

  Illinois Civil Contractors, Inc. 

HeavyJob lets you eliminate errors like those that result from illegible handwriting. Validating your data cuts down on miscommunication between the field and the office, saving time and money.


HCSS HeavyJob Testimonial

“What’s so great about the HeavyJob software is it’s in a very easy-to-follow sequence...For a foreman who has never used a computer, it’s very simple. I had all our foremen turning in their time the second day they had HeavyJob in their hands. They never missed a beat. Basically, they threw their paper and pencils away.”

HCSS GPS Leads Police to Stolen Generator

Lewis Contractors, Inc., got an alert one night that a Wacker 25K generator — valued at $20,000 — had moved off their job site. Investigating the next morning, they noticed that the generator was missing. However, they’d recently purchased GPS tracking from HCSS, and one call to HCSS support was all it took to begin the recovery process. By sending pings to the GPS receiver every four minutes, HCSS was able to track the equipment’s movement and pinpoint the location of the generator, down to the exact corner of the garage that was housing the stolen equipment.

The accuracy of the GPS data, which can plot an object’s location with a margin of error as small as three meters, allowed police to obtain a search warrant, and they recovered the stolen generator from the garage.

Elapsed time between the first call to HCSS and the generator’s recovery? Two hours.

According to Lewis, he was previously working more than 10 hours per day solely on the task of trying to manage 135 pieces of equipment, nine mechanics and shop personnel, timecards, parts orders, preventive maintenance schedules, and emergency field repairs.

The generator would’ve been a lost investment if the crew hadn’t recovered the equipment. Construction theft is a gnawing problem for professionals everywhere, and while equipment is often insured, deductibles can be staggering, with some as high as $25,000. With fees that steep, it’s crucial to keep your equipment from walking off the job.

The GPS system is already paying for itself, according to IT Manager Ron Lewis. Thanks to the recovery of the generator, “we’ve recouped about two-thirds of our investment before we’ve even outfitted our entire fleet,” Lewis told HCSS.


Equpment360 Testimonial

"We are extremely excited to have this software at this stage and still have the opportunity to influence its further development. We see great potential in being able to more effectively control and track our repair and maintenance costs. We also see this as a huge step in making our shop more of a cost and revenue center, rather than just a very large overhead expense. Having the repair, maintenance, and cost history on all of our equipment will definitely help us with future decisions on selling and buying equipment."

Equipment360 Testimonial

"Equipment360 is a breakthrough in design and development for software; the new graphical interface is impressive. The system is very easy to manage work orders per mechanic, monitor how much work they have to do (both in number of tasks and hours of work). The system will forecast how long each task should take, based off prior work, then create a report of efficiency per mechanic—very powerful. The extensive set up will pay dividends in the first 12 months of implementation, and then huge returns in the future with very detailed history available at the touch of a button."

"Equipment360 saves us money hugely by not processing paperwork anymore. Everything’s electronic, right on the screen. Our mechanics aren’t hunting down time sheets and paper records all the time. 

Its probably saved me an hour, two hours a day. It’s probably saved the mechanics more than that."
