Vision InfoSoft currently has a customer base of over 11,500 electrical and plumbing contractors. Plumbing Bid Manager is the only industry solution that integrates automatic pricing updates with estimating and on-screen takeoff.
Plumbing Bid Manager offers cost estimating and on-screen takeoff on a best-of-breed basis. The software includes key features such as digitizer integration, 2D takeoff, excel integration, and visual assemblies. The software also includes standard estimating features such as “what-if” analysis and conceptual estimates. To help plumbing contractors make the most accurate bids on their projects, the software includes an updated cost database with up-to-date material and labor pricing.
Plumbing Bid Manager is best suited for small and medium-sized plumbing contractors, but can also support larger firms taking on projects beyond the million dollar mark. The software is a great fit for both residential and commercial plumbing, but does not offer support for mechanical or HVAC projects.
Vision InfoSoft offers a unique training program with Brian Hoffelder to help buyers get up to speed with the software’s estimating functionality. In addition to the built-in training, Vision InfoSoft also offers support by phone, email, and Internet.
Doing plumbing work and having a way to bid that work can be a difficult situation, and this program really helps me with this.
FIguring out how to use the software has a learning curve, but overall it was not that hard to figure out.
