MIKE XV™ Estimating
Mechanical Insulation Key Estimator™
Cut estimating time in half. Avoid costly extension
errors. Estimate using built-in productivity factors, or
customize your own tables. Calculate base bids and
alternates and quickly. Develop cost and bid price by
section or by total job. Create an accurate bill of
materials for each project. Ready to use. With minimal
training, you're up and bidding.
IKE 10™ Estimating
Interior's Key Estimator™
Each IKE 10 module was written specifically for it's
industry. IKE knows the idiosyncrasies of each trade.
Which allows the estimators to quickly and easily
generate bids, and gives them a competitive edge in
their respective construction markets. An estimator with
these high tech, but easy to use estimating programs can
produce an estimate faster, therefore, they can bid more
jobs, increasing the probability of securing more work.
Job Information Manager™
JIM allows you to set up to four group levels of detail
reporting and subtotaling. Examples of these groups
could be: Floor, Zone, System, Specification, Work Type,
etc. It also provides the ability to correctly set and
adjust man power loading to optimize production and job
scheduling. The system allows the manager to set high
and low productivity thresholds that will flag them
about production problems immediately, so they can take
action to correct any problems or trends. JIM also has
the ability to do manual and/or barcode scanning data
entry. Along with the ability to do comparison analysis
of multiple jobs based on up to ten different flags.
These ten different flags can be used alone or in any
combination to do the comparison analysis. And last but
not least, the ability to see actual production on a job
so you can adjust future estimated production rates.
Do you currently receive your plans in digital format,
either on CD or electronically from the internet? Visual
TakeOff+™ was designed for you. Dodge Plans™, the
government and your local plan rooms are currently
providing estimators with plans in electronic format
either on CD-ROM or directly from the internet. Visual
TakeOff+™, can read those digital plans, and allows you
to view and do your takeoff right on your monitor, it's
as simple as that.
Instead of using a scaled rule or rolling wheel device
to take off data from project drawings or plans, the
estimator uses a stylus. The stylus measures quantities
on the drawings and inputs the data directly into an
estimating program or spreadsheet. This is much faster
and more accurate than old fashioned hand methods.
TakeOff 2000+™ does Lineal, Square and Count
measurements. It can use any imperial or metric scale
(e.g. 1/8, 1/4, 3/16, 1:50, 1:100, etc.), plus it can
determine the scale by measuring one known measurement.
The estimator can view each step of the take-off process
on the computer monitor. This helps to avoid both
inadvertent data omissions and repetitions. The
estimator can also color code the on screen graphical
take-off. This copy of TakeOff 2000+™ is configured
specifically for use with a spreadsheet program. More
specifically for Microsoft Excel or Lotus 123.
