Estimating with sub-schedules

Limitless detail, infinite possibilities.

When the client provides one item for a complex section of work, for example, a Lump Sum Item calling for the construction of a bridge, with Methvin you can change the item into a “sub-schedule item”. By using the Pricing Module, any items pertaining to that sub-schedule will roll up to the clients item. Under the sub-schedule you are able to add as much detail as you require, to allow you to price the item accurately. The Client report will only reflect the Lump Sum Item as requested in his schedule, in this example “The Bridge”.

Advanced estimating options

Simple or complex pricing, or the best of both worlds.

Simple Online Estimating

Insert your required selling or gross rate directly into the pricing schedule. This can then be printed or exported to Excel as a client’s quote. All changes are saved automatically and you have successfully created your first tender in Methvin.

Complex Estimating With Worksheet

Under each item in the schedule there is a worksheet dynamically attached. Here you can drag in resources or worksheets from the pricing accordion, decreasing your pricing time and improving the accuracy of your tender.


Estimating online with variables

This is how “Methvin Estimating Software” comes into its own.

Our complex worksheet allows you to set variables for pricing, for example the distance from a quarry to the site or the depth of a trench. When you set up a new project, with a similar item to price, all that is required is to adjust the variables to the new circumstances once again providing an accurate tender.
