"We're excited to bring these technology integrations to Beacon's customers and give them an advantage with a solution that quickly turns bids around with incredible accuracy," said Adam Oaks, Chief Executive Officer of Estimating Edge. "And when a job is ready to be built, they can use EDGE On Site to track production, track hourly employees and produce time cards, in real-time with virtually no data entry. The software and app are intuitively designed to help both new and seasoned professionals work smarter, bid sharper and build better."
The EDGE Estimator is a commercial estimating software that provides an end-to-end automated solution for both takeoff and estimating, so it functions more smoothly than other market solutions. It updates material and labor costs immediately while also checking for costly errors, allowing contractors to bid with confidence. EDGE On Site is the only mobile app that tracks production directly from the original estimate, providing an accurate picture of total project costs.
"We're constantly looking for new ways to help our customers save time and grow their businesses," said Jamie Samide, VP of Marketing at Beacon. "The integration of the EDGE solutions with Beacon PRO+ will help contractors prepare estimates and orders with greater accuracy as well as increased efficiency and consistency."
