Using RSMeans cost data, Estimating Standard and Extended Edition products, within the Sage Timberline Office suite, offer expanded databases of proprietary assemblies and provided powerful tools for configuring building items and templates. DProfiler with RSMeans is a Macro BIM solution used in the planning and conceptual design phase to produce an accurate cost estimate of a proposed design as well as 3D models, drawings and proforma documents.
"Having the most widely used estimating software from a world-class software company integrated into DProfiler(TM) with RSMeans ensures our customers can accurately estimate costs throughout the Macro BIM process," said Stewart Carroll, COO of Beck Technology. "This allows for DProfiler(TM) with RSMeans' seamless integration into an existing and proven financial and estimating environment where clients are already heavily invested in proprietary data. They no longer have to make a choice of whether they can use a Macro BIM product with their cost data."
Sage Timberline Office is fully integrated financial and operations software with a core estimating application containing a full range of databases with standard and configurable industry items. With the estimating software, customers create quick, accurate estimates backed by material, cost, and labor details. Benefits of the integration to Beck Technology customers include connections to existing proprietary cost data within the client's own organization with the ability to validate their estimates against RSMeans cost data. The estimating tools increase the ability of estimators to participate in the Macro BIM process and provide input early in the conceptual and design phases of the project, improving communication among all project participants.
Sage Timberline Office has thousands of estimating clients who could use DProfiler(TM) with RSMeans. This integration brings Macro BIM to those customers, who can benefit from the added value of end-to-end cost management, 3D and 2D models, proforma documents and more. Not only will customers have accurate costing in the early design phase, they will also have visualization of the building projects for all participants including architects, engineers, owners, and builders.
"We chose Beck Technology as a development partner because they are the Macro BIM experts and we wanted our customers to benefit from this revolution in the building industry," said Norm Cadsawan, Director of Development Partner Program for Sage Timberline Office. "The technology is exciting and our clients will benefit greatly from this Macro BIM integrated solution."
