PRONAMICS’ estimating system, Expert Estimation, is a comprehensive estimation system that is capable of handling all sizes of estimate from the most complex to small, quick estimates.
Expert Estimation allows users to develop or import a bill of quantities for a client, while a takeoff calculation sheet can be used to calculate the quantities for each item and transfer the quantities back to the schedule.
Each item has a cost estimate sheet that allows a full resource based estimate to be developed. These estimates may be as simple or complex as required and can include group (complex or assembly) resources, which provide almost infinite flexibility for estimates.
Overhead (indirect) costs are estimated in a similar way to direct cost items and these along with profit margin, risks and opportunities, contingencies etc are automatically spread across the direct costs producing the projects’ selling rates.
After submission of the tender and winning the job, the complete estimate can be imported to the company’s on-site project cost management system, Expert Project, or the data from the reports or windows may be quickly copied or exported to any other standard windows application via the windows clipboard or directly to spreadsheets.
Pronamics software is effectively used by many industries. The company’s current users perform work in civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, telecommunications, pipelining, mining and other construction related fields.
Users of the software range from large multi-national mining, engineering and construction companies, government construction departments with hundreds of users and local authorities, to small and medium sized engineering firms and single user contract estimators.
