While having many projects at one time is good for your construction business, trying to keep track of them all can be a real headache. In the old days, this meant filing cabinets full of documents, blueprints, bids and cost estimates for each project. Talk about a nightmare!
Along Came the Computer
With the advent of the computer, you could store your bids and blueprints on a PC instead of in a huge filing cabinet. While this was infinitely better because it helped you get rid of tons of excess paperwork, this system was not without its drawbacks.
These early systems required numerous programs and databases to manage each of your projects and bids. On top of all this, it only took one wrong keystroke to wipe out hours of hard work and leave you and your clients in the dark. More importantly, losing your files could potentially cost you thousands of dollars. You and your customers both deserve better.

Going One Step Further
Chances are good you do most of your work in the office, but what are you going to do when you are called to discuss a project with one of your clients on location? Do you print out the current information and then make hand-written adjustments that have to be uploaded when you get back to the office?
What happens if your client asks for information that is back on your office computer? With Estimator Locator, you never have to worry because you can log into your account from anywhere with an internet connection. Our system allows you to access your entire database with a single click, provide the most up-to-date information to your clients, update your estimates, retrieve new data and show-off the blueprints online.
