About HCSS

Helping your business run more efficiently since 1986.

What We Do

Our main customer base consists of infrastructure, heavy/highway, and utility contractors. That means our customers build roads, bridges, dams, airports, and other structures on which society runs.

Our passion is in developing software to help these contractors do their jobs even better. We developed HeavyBid, the industry standard in estimating software, to help contractors dramatically improve their estimating and bidding capability and increase their odds of winning profitable work.

But winning a project is only the beginning.

That’s why HCSS provides an entire suite of integrated software to help contractors all the way through project completion, including programs to manage daily activities in the field, track labor and equipment, keep workers safe on the job, and much more.

Our Mission & Vision

Since 1986, HCSS has been developing software to help construction companies streamline their operations. Today, we are recognized as a pioneer and leader in our market, serving thousands of construction companies across the nation from our offices just outside Houston, TX in Sugar Land. Year after year, we continue to innovate, refine, and expand our products as the industry evolves.

Our mission at HCSS is to help customers achieve excellence through our proven, customer-centric, end-to-end solutions and exceptionally helpful service, while providing a great life for our employees.
