Make more money on your projects

Sigma will help you avoid errors in your estimates that cost you money and provide you with a reliable overview of your margins, so you can instantly see the effect on your bottom line if you reduce your price or give an upfront discount to win a project.

You can also use the going rate for labor and supplies by integrating with construction industry pricing databases. Sigma gives you confidence that your estimates are watertight.

With Sigma, you build your estimates in the same logical way as you would build the project.  You don’t need to write formulas in a spreadsheet.  You only need to think of preparing your estimate as you would if you were building it because Sigma completes the underlying calculations for you.

Save money by avoiding spreadsheet errors

Sigma rescues you from spreadsheet errors, data inputting mistakes, missing cells that should have been included in your calculations, and whatever other major or minor errors might creep into a conventional spreadsheet when you’re preparing an estimate.

With Sigma, you estimate the price of each building part individually.  Sigma then summarizes all the related material and labor calculations and gives you a complete overview in the final Summary sheet.  Everything is included and there is no danger of missing a vital detail.

Always work with the latest updated prices

You can choose to price the individual building sections yourself, or get the latest updated prices from your suppliers or one of the recognized online pricing databases in the construction industry.  Sigma integrates with RSMeans data, can import most other price lists or you can create your own customized pricing databases which you compile with your own data over time.

This ensures you always estimate project costs based on the current market rates which helps avoid any nasty surprises when you complete the project, like realizing your profit isn’t as high as you thought it was going to be.

Increase your profitability

With Sigma, it’s easy to make sure you’re earning the money you need to on your building projects.  You can be sure that you have included all the necessary material, labor, equipment and resources, confident you haven’t made any errors in your estimate that could make the whole project unprofitable.

 

Always have the latest project overview at hand

From the Summary sheet, you can constantly track whether you are coming in on budget, and check which areas of the project you might need to estimate differently next time.  It also gives you an overview of your profit margins and total cost prices for the entire construction project.

This helps you spot projects that are not going to earn you much money, or discover errors or omissions in the supply lists for individual building parts to ensure better profitability.

Sigma also alerts you to the most common mistakes and draws your attention to inaccuracies and possible omissions, so that you can be sure your estimate includes everything it should.

Make pricing adjustments confidently

The final Summary sheet allows you to discount or increase your prices with confidence.  Each price change can be made on an informed basis because you will immediately see its impact on the profitability of your project.  As you drill down into each individual building part, you can quickly update your forecasts to get a more accurate view of the earnings on the remainder of the project.

Control your building supplies budget

If you get your pricing information from an online industry pricing database, Sigma will show you the exact amount and cost of the building supplies your project will need.  This gives you complete visibility of the materials you use with nothing forgotten or left to chance.

This also means you can print a complete list of materials when you start the project, so you do not have to go to the building suppliers several times.  You can improve scheduling and complete the project faster to get started on the next one.
