Our latest release of Cubit Estimating (version 10.1) has arrived and offers an exciting new way to increase the efficiency and productivity of your workflows, so you can work faster, more accurately, and with greater confidence.




New name. Same great software.

As part of this release, we’ve updated our branding, with Cubit now named Cubit Estimating. We’ve also rebranded Bartender, which is now named Cubit Select. The new naming better represents our single-solution approach for both estimating and tender management.

Although the names have changed, you can still expect the same great software you have come to rely upon, with no changes to its functionality or your access outside of the new features being introduced in Cubit Estimating 10.1. 

You can learn more about the rebranding of Cubit Estimating and Cubit Select by reading our FAQs, or by speaking with one of our Product Consultants.

Improved Collaboration

Responding to industry feedback for a more collaborative way to estimate, we’ve improved the ability for you and your team to collaborate on a job.

It’s now easier for you and your team to access, view, and report on a Job, even while someone else is inside that Job. There’s no need to ask a team member to exit a Job, or to duplicate it, so you can get your work done - simply open the Job as ‘Read Only’ and review the entire job, understand what stage your estimate is at, and even generate reports. 

When you’re the person working on an estimate, there’s no need to worry about changes being made without you knowing. While you’re editing, your team can review the job, but not make changes, so you have peace of mind that your data isn’t being affected. 

Making your estimate data more accessible to your team will help reduce bottlenecks in your workflows, facilitate greater accuracy while analysing your jobs, and offers greater insights to allow you to make the right decisions. You and your team will always have access to the information you need.

This new collaboration feature is available in Cubit Estimating Professional and Professional + BIM.


Bill of Quantity Improvements

We’ve also been working hard to improve the way our system handles a Bill of Quantities, so you can present it in a way that better matches your needs. 

The latest version of Cubit Estimating introduces more formatting controls, enabling you to customise your BOQ reports according to your customers’ needs. 

Improvements include additional font support featuring identical bill referencing, and additional formatting facilities via a new formatting column, enabling you to mark items as having no bill reference, extend an Item description, centre-align text, indent a line, and remove a black line after a row. 

Along with giving you greater control, these improvements make work easier for our Global Estimating customers to work between both systems, and achieve the same formatting results.

These Bill of Quantity Improvements are available in Cubit Estimating Professional and Professional + BIM.
