Enter job specifications for faster takeoff using IntelliBid's Job Spec feature. Save your job settings as the default for all similar type or future jobs, saving the time of having to recreate or reset job specifications for each bid.
Job Settings – IntelliBid's job settings feature gives you the ability to set specific factors for material and labor, installation sizes and material quantity multipliers by phase or for the entire job.
Assembly Groups - Preselecting assembly group options significantly reduces takeoff time.
Takeoff Prompts - Setting takeoff prompts, before you start the estimate, cuts down on redundant data entry.
Estimate the Right Amount of Labor for Every Installation
IntelliBid's exclusive Automatic Labor Factoring feature calculates the labor requirements for multiple installation conditions and applies the precise amount of labor required for each material item according to its level of installation difficulty.
Automatic Labor Factoring eliminates the need to manually factor the labor requirements of each installation for precise, accurate & labor-efficient bids.

Alerts for Missing Prices and Labor
How many times have you run the risk of missing prices or labor in an estimate? It can be pretty risky business unless you have the right tools to help you guard against potentially damaging oversights. IntelliBid delivers those safeguards with alerts that warn the estimator when prices or labor for items or assemblies in the estimate are missing. A detailed, easy-to-read list of materials and labor in your estimate is clearly displayed on the screen where you can edit missing prices and labor before you go to bid!
Use IntelliBid's Journal Message Center to email and record Bid Proposals, Submittals, Change Order Proposals, RFIs, RFQs, Transmittals and phone memos, including inbound emails for complete communication tracking.
User-definable Job Cost Codes can be exported to major accounting programs, letting you easily set up job budgets without re-entering all your bid data. Transfer cost code budget information or changes in an estimate to ConEst JobTrac or to job cost modules in your accounting program using bid data from IntelliBid for integrated estimating, accounting and job costing.
