As technological advancements have transformed our everyday lives, so to have they been instrumental in changing the way we do business, and the construction industry is no different.

We can now use robots to lay bricks, use drones to assess sites and monitor work conditions, and even 3D print entire homes. The frontier of Artificial Intelligence, automations, and new technologies in construction is exciting, and there are many changes that can be used in your day-to-day work that can have significant impacts on both the daily short term, and the strategic long-term success of your business.

One of the areas of massive change for construction companies is estimating. Moving away from manually calculating quantities, spreadsheets brought many estimators and builders into the digital age, and they are still one of the most popular tools used to help determine the cost of a build. While spreadsheets offer many benefits, the use of estimating software like Cubit Estimating - Buildsoft's state-of-the-art construction estimating solution - can take your business to the next level, with an array of advantages.

If you’re still using spreadsheets for your construction estimating, you should consider the use of specialised estimating software in reviewing the best approach for your business moving forward.

To help you with the process, we’ve highlighted some of the differences between the two options, and why estimating software is becoming more popular as the preferred solution for many General Contractors, Companies, Estimators, and Subcontractors world-wide.
