The plugins we have developed are straight-forward so that they make sense to those in the industry. After getting familiar with how the system works, you can get up and running the next day. Because all of our plugins are laid out the same way, once you understand how one works, the rest comes easily. We have been in the construction industry for decades, and as subcontractors, general-contractors, superintendents, and estimators, we understand the complexity of the construction industry. This is why we have worked tirelessly to ensure our plugins are flexible enough for you to customize them specifically to how you build so that you can quickly generate the material and bid reports that work best for your needs.
