Cubit Select is the new and innovative online solution that can change the way your business reviews tenders and performs cost comparison analysis.

You can improve your workflows with fast access to detailed data insights and collate all of your quotes in one location.

We understand there’s more to choosing the right software solution for your business than just an impressive array of features and benefits. If you’re thinking about moving to Cubit Select, here’s some things you need to consider.

The right time

It’s always important to consider when the right time to move across to a new software solution is; and Cubit Select is no different.

Cubit Select seamlessly integrates with Cubit, our natural estimating solution. Designed to offer you a greater level of ease and efficiency when creating your estimates, Cubit Select helps you to easily select new costs and suppliers for your job.

Because of this integration,between your estimate in Cubit and your comparison in Cubit Select, you’ll need to have a thorough knowledge and practical understanding of Cubit. This means you should be able to comfortably complete your takeoff and estimating in Cubit.

If you’re interested in Cubit Select but you’re not quite at that level of using Cubit, don’t worry. We’ve got the people and resources on-hand to help you through learning and adopting both solutions into your business.

If you’re currently using SCP (Subcontractor Comparison Program) and Global Estimating together, you should consider whether moving to Cubit and Cubit Select is right for your and your business.  Both Cubit and Cubit Select are designed to help you estimate efficiently and offer your business savings in both time and money. As with any new solution, it will take a little time to get up and running. However, the advantages of adopting the new innovations and features available will outweigh the time it takes to become proficient in the systems.

If you’re not ready to start adopting Cubit and would like to say working with Global Estimating, that’s okay! Global Estimating and SCP are still supported by Buildsoft and you can continue to use them indefinitely.

Adopting Cubit Select

When you’ve made the decision to move to Cubit Select, there’s a range of things to consider in order to implement the new system into your business workflows.

Working with Cubit

Beyond having a practical working understanding of Cubit, you’ll also need to be running the latest version of Cubit Pro. This is to make sure your software is always up to date and the integration between Cubit Select and Cubit is working at its best for you.

To ensure you are using the latest version, you’ll need to have current software assurance cover. This will give you all the benefits of having the latest features and functions of Cubit through major and minor updates, as well as access to our dedicated support team.

Achieving your goals

If you’re an SCP user, you’ll be used to a certain way of working with your software to achieve your goals.Cubit Select is a new system with additional innovations, which means there are differences in the way you work within the system.

Although the features are not exactly the same, you can accomplish most of the same goals in Cubit Select as you can in SCP. You can input and access your estimate and quotes, with features designed to make comparing and picking a winning supplier easy and efficient.

Speak to one of our Product Consultants about the differences, and see how you’ll be able to achieve the goals and results you’re looking for.
