“Partnering with a best in class Cloud Estimating Platform is a terrific opportunity for Quest customers. The commitment to regionalise ProEst for the Australian market will bring features and terminology that users expect.” Eric Silcott, Director of Sales

ProEst brings a new vision to commercial estimating software by introducing the software as a service (SaaS) model that has already revolutionised many other markets. SaaS has become a common term in the software industry, though contractors have been historically slow to adapt to new technology. COVID-19 has amplified the requirement of flexible estimating solutions that enable remote and collabrative work.

Contractors regularly work with three and four estimating tools, often an estimating system with independent takeoff software and few spread sheets – and frequently working in isolation. They are challenged to generate project budgets from awarded estimates, creating time consuming and error prone processes. By contrast, ProEst delivers a seamless environment with several advantages.

Four Key Values

  • All-In Licensing – unlimited users allow all stakeholders access
  • Ease of Use – setup and rollout is made easy with ProEst design and cloud access
  • WorkFlows – automated reporting and collaboration so everyone is notified and tasked actioned
  • Integrations – ProEst is API connectors to ProCore, Viewpoint and MYOB Advanced

“I believe the term Estimate De-Risking is starting to resonate with contractors. Most estimators have preferred tools that are not collaborative and provide little to no management and operational value. Working from a single platform where there are now limitations to the number of users is a game changer” Eric Silcott, Director of Sales
