HVAC – Sheet Metal

QuoteSoft Custom Ductwork Estimating Software

No two contractors are exactly alike – and QuoteSoft is the only solution that is customized to fit your every need. QuoteSoft estimating software is a powerful custom software solution for ductwork and HVAC contractors who need a simple to use tool to estimate labor hours and material costs for ductwork, pipe, and fittings.

QuoteSoft Sheet Metal is designed for the needs of commercial and industrial sheet metal ductwork contractors, who need a fast and accurate tool to calculate fabrication, installation, and material costs. QuoteSoft estimating software automatically calculates your labor hour and material costs for rectangular, round, and oval ductwork, accessories, and HVAC equipment.

Preparing accurate takeoffs requires a tremendous amount of knowledge, formulas, materials, specifications, labor rates, and factors. Finding people with the right skills is not easy. QuoteSoft offers an alternative. By customizing QuoteSoft with the knowledge of your senior estimators into company-standard data tables, takeoff can be done by part time or entry level estimators and or project managers and your senior staff can focus on working the crucial takeoffs that will ensure winning profitable jobs and improving the bottom line.

QuoteSoft is shipped with SMACNA specifications and standard labor times, which is modified for any type of duct system. Custom specifications are programmed to match your company’s standards for duct construction during your installation and training, and can be set up with allowances for purchased ductwork, spiral pipe and fittings.

QuoteSoft Ductwork Estimating Software performs your takeoffs directly from plans on your computer screen, QuoteSoft On-Screen supports a wide variety of popular CAD Drawing formats including PDF, BMP, iSQFT, Dodge Plans, JPEG, TIF, GIF, and hundreds of others.

QuoteSoft takeoff automatically calculates all metal pounds, costs, square feet, liner, equipment costs, shop and field labor with a single click. With QuoteSoft duct estimating software all values are instantly available during takeoff, including the ability to override the standard hours and dollars and insert custom values. This means no more wondering what’s going into your bid. QuoteSoft is the ONLY PROGRAM that makes it easy to be comfortable with your numbers right away, because you can see and override all data going into your bid during takeoff.

Data Visibility – The right values every time. Only QuoteSoft can do that.

Estimating can be a daunting task. Luckily, programs like Microsoft Excel can make adding up your material and labor simple. While Excel can input a simple takeoff, it can’t automatically arrange items into groups and specifications for a streamlined takeoff of duct, fittings, or equipment. With just a few clicks QuoteSoft sends a complete marked up takeoff into your Excel sheet with details like size, labor hours, material cost, and type of item included.
Whether you’re using Excel spreadsheets, another estimating program, or preparing estimates by hand, you’ll find QuoteSoft estimating software easy to use. Designed by contractors for contractors, QuoteSoft estimating software works the way you do. Suddenly, takeoff and estimating becomes faster and even easier for everyone, from estimators, project managers to support staff. Keep Excel for its strength — the final estimate summary— and let QuoteSoft take care of the rest.
