ConEst IntelliBid is a true, multi-user application that allows file sharing across a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN) environment. The Network Administrator module in IntelliBid, which is standard on the Pro and Design Build levels of the program, can also be added to the Lite and Plus products. The Network Administrator feature allows multiple estimators to work on the same job at the same time without having or trying to merge job files after the fact. All updates are automatically controlled by IntelliBid to ensure that the estimate’s data is current and valid.

In addition to sharing job and database files over the network, IntelliBid’s hardware security key can also be shared. A single user key that is programmed with the Network Administrator can access job and database files stored on a server and can be moved from computer to computer to accommodate different users. A multi-user key allows all estimators to access job and
database files from any computer on the network, simultaneously, up to the number of user licenses programmed on the key.

Multi-user access to job and database files allows a concentrated effort on large jobs, or jobs that need immediate completion, without restricting the estimators to any one workstation.
