Sage Construction Estimating Software

Better estimates by every measure. More than any other estimating software, Sage Estimating stands apart – providing construction firms large and small with an estimating solution that helps build bids quickly and precisely while eliminating manual data re-entry as project responsibility changes hands.

Sage Estimating is a trusted and reliable solution. It provides estimators with the speed and precision they need to win more bids. And more than any other estimating solution available, Sage Estimating makes construction businesses more cohesive by uniting all phases of the project lifecycle – ensuring project efficiency even as bids are approved and project responsibility changes hands. It’s integrated. It’s accurate. It’s fast.


Improved Workflow from Initial Bid to Project Completion: The software works in tandem with accounting solutions from Sage to establish a seamless interplay between all project collaborators—even as project responsibility changes hands. Once a proposal is accepted, all the appropriate data feeds from the estimating side into accounting and project management. No data loss. No redundant entry. All team members are kept on the same page, looking at the most current data in order to make decisions—and helping do their part to move projects through the lifecycle from bid to finish.

Time Savings: When firms use Sage Estimating, they can save substantial time throughout the entire estimating process – gaining efficiency through automated takeoff capabilities, built-in cost databases, and easy-to-use estimating worksheets. Build-in reports and proposals can be generated quickly, providing a more sophisticated level of service to clients.

Accuracy: Profitable projects start with accurate estimates. Sage Estimating takes generic spreadsheets with error-prone formulas and hidden cells out of the equation. What you get are automated takeoff tools backed by powerful cost databases – greatly increasing your precision.
