News Release

New Construction Estimating Software Increases Profit Potential for Construction Companies
Released: 4th September 2013
Publisher: COMSS
  • Specifically designed to provide the foundation for profitable projects
  • Enables estimators to work smarter by providing them with the modern tools they need to deliver fast and accurate estimates
  • Optimised for small to medium sized construction companies
  • Available as a standalone module
  • Launch offer makes upgrading from out of date software or manual systems even more affordable
  • Integrates with InBusiness Construction Suite

Following the successful release of the InBusiness Construction and the InBusiness Accounting Suites, COMSS, the Irish software company, launched today its InBusiness Estimating Module. The new estimating module is designed to be a lean software application that delivers a streamlined workflow which maximizes the reusability of estimating building costs and presents it in a clean, modern interface that makes it easy for building estimators to be more productive.

Not only does this enable faster estimating of building costs– and thus the ability to bid for more projects – but it also delivers more accurate estimates – thus improving the profitability of construction projects. It does this by giving construction estimators the information they need to be sure what price to bid and know what margins can be achieved. Compared with existing estimating software, which over the years have become clogged up with rarely used functions, InBusiness Estimating provides only essential functions – making it much easier to use.

John Tallon, Director of Product Development at COMSS, said: “When creating the InBusiness Estimating software, we focused on what estimators need to do their job. At every stage of the estimating process we have asked ourselves ‘How can this be done better and how can this be done faster?’ As a result we stripped out all the unnecessary functions that clog up other estimating software to deliver a breakthrough estimating tool.

“Our estimating tool gives construction companies the ability to build-in profit from the outset and then make sure they achieve the expected profit levels”, added Tallon.

InBusiness has been developed by an Irish software company called COMSS that was formed specifically to deliver new construction software solutions that are optimised for the post financial-meltdown world of today. This breakthrough solution is a result of creative collaboration within the COMSS team combined with comments and recommendations from various contracting organisations in Ireland and the UK. The combination has produced a powerful tool designed to help reinvigorate the construction sector and as a result, InBusiness has been endorsed by the Construction Industry Federation (CIF).
