Estimating

Bizprac Estimating integrates deeply with the entire software suite, enabling comprehensive job creation, purchase ordering, and financial tracking directly from estimates.

Estimating Functions & Features

Bizprac's estimating functions are designed for flexibility and efficiency, supporting a range of estimating needs from simple to complex projects. With features like direct job and purchase order creation from estimates, Bizprac streamlines the estimating process and enhances project management capabilities​​.

Trade Breakup Functions & Features

By clicking on the Trade Breakup, you will access the information contained in the estimate.

Marking up an Estimate

The estimate setting found in the trade break up has several options for marking up your estimate. The mark up on an estimate is the amount added to the cost of the project. Once all costs of the project are taken into consideration, the amount left over is the profit of the job. Using the mark up option will help you to assess the potential profit you can expect.

Potential Clients

The clients area will allow you to add potential or client contact details for the quoting/ estimating process. Since they will not have signed a contract at this time they will not be in the debtor list. If they do not accept the quote they may never go into the debtor list. Repeat clients do not need to be entered multiple times, the same record can be reused. Diary, general or action notes can be added to record information. Clients are attached to the estimate that is being worked on and can be turned into a debtor upon the job creation process.

Sub Cost Centres

When setting up the estimate for quoting cost centres will be set up for the order of the build or as you wish to see the list. Main cost centres group information together; for example Preliminaries; may contain of all of the products/items for the start of the project. The introduction of sub cost centres in Bizprac Ultimate will allow for further break down of costings into sub headings (sub cost centres) as well as additional flexibility for claim by percentage in the jobs area. The introduction of sub cost centres will provide greater flexibility for job tracking as well as claiming.

Suppliers

Begin by opening the suppliers screen.
Click on the New Supplier button, opening the update suppliers screen.
Add the details of the supplier, including the name, address and contact details.
Once added click ok.
You will also have the option to add the new supplier to the Creditors list. If you will be processing orders or invoices for this supplier click yes.
Continue adding suppliers to the list as required.
From this screen you can also modify or delete suppliers.

Templates

Just as you may use a toolbox to organise and easily access your tools; Bizprac uses cost centres to organise and manage the products and items which are within the estimate.

An estimate can have half a dozen cost centres or it can have hundreds. There is no one rule that needs to be employed but the size of the job or project will have a bearing on the amount of cost centres you will need to use. If your company does a variety of work such as renovations, new homes or commercial work you will more than likely have a different template (spreadsheet) for each type of project.

Instead of typing in all of the cost centres you need each time a new estimate is created you can import the template list for immediate use. You can then modify the list to suit your requirements for that project. A template list is a popular basis for cost plus jobs.

We would recommend that a comprehensive master estimate is established. Add all of the cost centres you require for the majority of projects that you tender on. By adding any products or structures you will have a comprehensive standard that can be adjusted when copying.
