Editors' reviewIt's bad enough when you screw up a flooring order for your own home; it's much worse when you're ordering for a client. FloorEstimate Pro helps nail flooring estimates on the head. Using its simple drag-and-drop interface, you can add rooms, closets, stairways, and hallways to a blank blueprint. The program then automatically calculates how much flooring you'll need to cover the whole area. To handle many-storied buildings, projects can include multiple levels. The program can display all measurements in either the Imperial or the Metric system. At the last stage, it can generate an invoice, a purchase order, or a proposal sheet, and export it to QuickBooks or to JPEG for printing. Unfortunately, Floor Estimate Pro provides no help file, so it's probably best suited to professionals who already know their way around the subject. Amateurs will have to look elsewhere: the $799 price tag makes sure of that.
Floor Estimate Pro (Standard) creates professional flooring layout and estimates for flooring retailers, installers, sales reps, and contractors. A sales rep simply lays out a floor plan, and the program instantly calculates linear length, square footage, and yardage, and optimizes seam layout and waste. Floor Estimate Pro saves time and material and shortens the quotation process.
Version 5.0.14 has drag and move seam adjustment, pattern carpet layout, tile pattern layout, borders, and walls, multi-levels. Added multiple tile section on walls, drag whole seam lines, tile editors.
