Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Estimating software ever We bought HCSS over 10 years ago because I thought it was the best out there. I am convinced that it remains the best. It is comprehensive yet intuitive, and it builds an estimate just the way I learned over 40 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality software providing quality results We have been using heavybid for the past three years and have been more than impressed with the results. I would blindly recommend this software to any company that works in the civil construction arena. Not only can a heavybid user estimate more in less time but can do this with great precision and zero margin of error.
