Options

Now you can offer design "Options" to your clients. For example, if your client is uncertain between two kitchen layouts, compute the material for each layout. With this feature, you can turn "on & off" the two options. Maintain your margins regardless of which option the clients chooses! You may also drag and drop the Option right into your Proposal to help you sell.

Cost Charts

Cost charts give you an easy way to control Item Costs. For example, a 2x4 could be listed ten places in your database. If the cost of the 2x4 changes, without a Cost Chart you are forced to update all ten locations MANUALLY! With the Cost Chart, you simply update the price ONCE and BidBuilder will update all ten locations automatically!

Equations

With this powerful feature you can enter a minimum amount of takeoff information and BidBuilder calculates the rest. For example: instead of always figuring out the sq. footage of drywall needed, simply setup an equation and let BidBuilder calculate the area, based on the wall length and height.
