Portsmouth, NH – September 14, 2015 – B2W Software, a leading provider of enterprise-class construction software, services and solutions, today announced that estimators at Northeast Contractors, Inc. are off to an impressive start with B2W Estimate after switching from a competitive software solution in July.
“The speed of putting together a bid has been the most immediate benefit,” according to John Rodegher, vice president of engineering at Northeast Contractors. “We’ve already reduced bid times by 25 percent, and we know we will do even better as we get more experience with B2W Estimate.”
Rodegher says estimating speed and accuracy advantages with the specialized program from B2W Software stem from the way crew, equipment and material cost information can be structured within a centralized database. “The building blocks for the estimate are up to date and all in one place, so we can move quickly and with confidence,” he adds. “I’ve seen other programs that try make this look easy in theory, but with B2W it actually is easy and intuitive.”
Northeast Contractors is based in Ludlow, Massachusetts. The company provides earthwork, grading and excavating as well as consulting services throughout the six-state New England region, serving architectural and engineering firms, developers, owners, and general contractors. Projects include a wide range university, hospital, municipal and commercial facilities.
Rodegher and his lead estimator were up and running with B2W Estimate after a two-day training session at their site. “The hands-on training was very effective, especially because we prepared and organized our resource data ahead of time and were able to use our own actual data,” he explains. “The B2W trainer was extremely versed in the product and he took time to answer any and all questions.”
Following the training session, Northeast Contractors completed several bids in parallel, using their old system and B2W Estimate for confirmation and peace of mind. “The head-to-head comparison really solidified the fact that we made the right decision in going with B2W,” Rodegher concludes.
