Easy estimate creator

Generate estimates for bids with this versatile program.

Estimate Master is designed to generate estimates for small businesses based upon information about a company and its services. Enter information about your company and customers and details about the goods or services your company provides, and Estimate Master does the rest. Estimate Master is set up with general contracting companies and other construction and repair companies in mind, but the program can be configured to prepare bids for any type of company that offers a service for its customers.

Estimate Master's interface is easy to navigate. It's organized with tabs so users can easily move back and forth between different sections of the program. There are sections where you can calculate costs for labor and parts, and you can print or export estimates. You can sort estimates by date, description, or estimator. If your company offers multiple services or has a team of estimators, Estimate Master will help you organize your dispersed team. There's a built-in backup tool to help safeguard your data. We thought this program was easy to use and didn't need to consult the instructions before getting started with it, but there's a good tutorial and a Help file that you can access if you need some help.

This is a 30-day trial version of the software. Estimate Master creates a desktop icon upon installation without asking, but installs and uninstalls with no problems. This is a good, versatile program that can help companies large and small save money with shrewd estimates for contracts and bids.
