HCSS is currently developing HCSS Pre-Construction, a fully customizable, web-based program to help you manage all the jobs coming up on your radar, before you even begin the estimate.
“HCSS Pre-Construction will give customers the ability to track and measure the entire lifecycle of a project, from the initial rumor stage, through business development, estimating and bidding, construction preparation, actual construction, and close out — all in one system,” said Tom Webb, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Customer Solutions.
HCSS is seeking Beta users for the second phase of development. If you are a HeavyBid version 18.1.1 user who tracks prospective work and current bids using Excel or an in-house tool, we’d like your help in getting Pre-Construction ready for general release.
Pre-Construction features template and custom data fields to help you track every aspect of your upcoming bids. In addition, you can track project status during pre-bid and throughout the bidding process, record bid results, and track post-bid data.
A customizable dashboard allows you to see all projects in a table or calendar view with data like average estimate cost by type, results by month, total cost or dollars bid across all estimates, and more, to give you deeper insights into your estimating department and the state of your business.
Jobs created in HCSS Pre-Construction feed directly into HeavyBid to cut down on the estimate building process, and data back from those estimates helps you see how you’re estimating and bidding across the company to influence future bids and ensure all estimators are on the same page.
