Modelling & Gang Rates

Speed up the tendering process - Modelling & Gang Rates
Accurately gauge margins, make adjustments and view the effects in an instant with comprehensive modelling reports. Advanced options allow a gang rate to be calculated according to the mix of skills and trades on-site. Further labour and performance options allow non productive and travelling time to be accounted for.

This allows the estimator to configure the working week and build up a list of labour grades with specific costs to calculate true cost per hour before mark-ups are applied.


Mark-up Summary

Mark-up Summary
The mark-up summary window is a clear concise view of the project showing total hours, total cost and cost of labour. Default, across the board mark-ups can be entered, or amended per section or commodity. You define your cost centre codes, allowing the profit to be allocated with precision and total flexibility.

Flexible profit options allowing for additional mark-up across the board and automatically calculating Builders Discount where required. Gross Profit is shown as percentages and cash.


Comprehensive reports

Comprehensive reports with unlimited sub-sections
Generate reports quickly and easily with a comprehensive range of pre-designed templates that can be customised to suit your needs. You can create any number of sections and subsections with the ability to form and collect subtotals as required.
