Sigma saves up to 85% of time used on estimates

Sigma lets you estimate construction projects in a fraction of the time you would need using a conventional spreadsheet. Sigma makes estimating construction projects easy by giving you a logical and user-friendly environment to work in. You formulate your estimate in the same way as you would commence its construction. Your project is divided into individual building parts, and each is estimated separately, with Sigma automatically creating a summary overview.

Save time by reusing your existing estimates

Once you have estimated the cost of a building part, this information can be easily reused by “dragging” it over to a new project.  There is no need to write formulas or change cell references.  The only things to check are the specifications and how many of these building parts will be used in your new project.  That’s it – Sigma manages the rest. Save even more time by importing your BIM data

Sigma integrates seamlessly with market-leading construction price databases

When you estimate the cost of building sections, typical material consumption and pricing for this amount of work can be imported either from your own price and material databases, or from the market-leading pricing databases.

You don’t need to manually update the pricing either.  This happens automatically with the click of a button, ensuring volumes and prices always match the latest developments in the market, so you’ll save the time looking up and re-entering information that you would need using a conventional spreadsheet.

Automatically created overview in a summary pricing table

As you estimate the individual parts that make up your construction project, Sigma automatically creates an overview of the total price in a summary table.  It shows the total volumes, cost price, profit and gross margin for each of the main sections of the building, as well as the final price of the entire construction project. You can slice and dice this overview with a click to highlight any cost categories as needed.

Imagine the time you’ve just saved from not having to painstakingly sum hundreds of separate cells!

Finalize your changes in an instant

You often need to make last minute adjustments to a proposal before submitting it.  Using conventional spreadsheets, this means making a lot of manual amends, which takes hours. Do you miss a single change errors will start creeping into your estimates.

Sigma makes these changes instantly, by automatically updating the pricing throughout your estimate, as you add or remove building part as required, throughout your estimate.  You make the change once, and Sigma will recalculate your entire project, so you’ll instantly see the impact of your changes on the whole estimate.

Quickly assess a project’s profitability

From the Summary sheet it is possible to adjust the prices of individual building sections to keep them in line with the market rate.  As soon as you change the price, you’ll see it ripple through the project.  You can of course change them again to readjust the final price.  This lets you quickly assess a project’s profitability – without tedious manual changes to each section of the underlying pricing.

Documentation with a click of a button!

When your estimate is complete and you’re ready to send your proposal, you can do this by simply clicking a button.  Sigma will summarize the necessary figures in the correct places, and save and attach the necessary documents automatically, letting you get away from your keyboard quicker, and of course minimizing the risk of missing something vital at the final stage.

Simultaneously, you can print material lists, job overviews, key summary figures and other important documentation for all the different parties on the project.
