Introducing New OnCost™ Estimating



November 19, 2013

With two years of development and feedback from tens of thousands of clients, UDA Technologies is excited to announce the much anticipated release of New ConstructionSuite™ 5 OnCost™ Estimating.

Rebuilt from the Ground Up

Designed with the strength of enterprise software and the power of a SQL based foundation, New OnCost Estimating offers unmatched speed and performance. And in a market where second chances are not an option, the ability to produce a professional, comprehensive estimate can make the difference between a profitable project and a painful one. With new OnCost™ Estimating, UDA started with a clean slate to craft a powerful estimating platform you can rely on. Because it was built from the ground up, users can enjoy an innovative, user-friendly system while still having the power and functionality they expect from an industry leader.

New OnCost™ Estimating allows you to:

  • Quickly produce accurate Estimates with detailed markups and classifications
  • Access the built-in Items Database with RS Means costbook data
  • Create high-quality Proposals through the improved Proposal Wizard
  • Generate Professional Reports, Purchase Orders, and more
  • Integrate your estimate directly with QuickBooks to prevent double entry errors
  • Generate comprehensive Schedules created from your estimate structure

Improved Performance and Speed

Not only is OnCost the leader in advanced estimating, but also in speed, performance, and flexibility. OnCost provides substantial improvements, with certain operations running over 10 times faster than previous versions.

Power Features for Power Users

With ConstructionSuite 5, users can also enjoy the new Estimate Summary sidebar. This feature lets you promptly view your project cost broken down by classification, type, or category. In addition to cost breakdown, this new estimate summary has a breakdown of all of your change orders, making it quick and easy to see them at a glance, straight from the project totals page. The Cost Breakdown pie chart on each category sheet provides an added resource to quickly view the cost of each subcategory sheet.

Improving on the Industry Standard

New ConstructionSuite 5 is already becoming the new industry standard in complete project management software. President of UDA Technologies, Michael Stevens said, "With OnCost, estimating in ConstructionSuite is faster and more powerful than ever. We are proud of its improvements and confident that it will help even more construction professionals grow their business and exceed their goals."

The Power of Innovation

Combining three award-winning platforms - ConstructionSuite™, ConstructionOnline™, and OnSite™ Mobile Applications - ConstructionSuite 5 is the latest edition to the UDA software family. This dynamic combination provides the power and stability of enterprise desktop software with the flexibility of a web-based program, giving you the best of both worlds. Redesigned with a focus on streamlining operations and improved performance, ConstructionSuite 5 is the next generation in advanced project management. The future is here.
