Integration Leads to Better ROI
For the construction industry, fast and easy estimates are imperative to better business. To help, technology continues to advance to enable a better estimate, ultimately leading to a better ROI (return-on-investment)
For example, ProEst, www.proest.com, San Diego, Calif., recently released integration with both NetPricer material pricing service and IDEA’S IDW (Industry Data Warehouse). NetPricer is an online material price update service that provides access to distributor’s material pricing. IDEA’S Industry Data Warehouse gives ProEst users the ability to import items directly from ElectricSmarts’ online catalog into the ProEst database.
ProEst users will now have access to the electrical industry anytime, anywhere with searchable eCatalogs, certified product data, industry calculators and conversion tables, product specifications, and distributor pricing (through NetPricer)—with access to all of this from a desktop, mobile app, or ProEst software.
Getting estimates created quickly with accurate material pricing information is imperative in today’s competitive market, according to Jeff Gerardi, president and CEO of ProEst. NetPak’s link to IDEA’s Data Warehouse has given ProEst users the power to quickly update pricing for all items across the entire database.
For many construction companies the benefit of functionality such as this leads to faster and more accurate estimates, which will ultimately have a great impact on the bottomline of a construction project.
