ProEst Partners with Viewpoint to Deliver an Integrated Construction Estimating, Digital Takeoff and Accounting Solution

With ProEst 2012, Viewpoint Construction Software customers can build a best-of-breed construction management system that includes estimating, digital takeoffs and bid day analysis.
San Diego, CA, February 15, 2012 -- ProEst Software, developer of award-winning construction estimating and digital takeoff technology, has announced that its latest product release, ProEst 2012, integrates with ViewPoint Construction Software to minimize duplicate data entry and maximize efficiency. When used together, ProEst and Viewpoint form an integrated construction management system that handles estimating, takeoffs, bid day analysis and accounting.


“ProEst has been a Viewpoint Development Partner for over two years and we've never been more excited about the partnership,” said Jeffrey Gerardi, President of ProEst. “ProEst and Viewpoint both utilize a SQL database structure, which enables superior interoperability between the two products. This makes it easy for Viewpoint users to build a best-of-breed system that utilizes the power of ProEst for estimating and takeoffs."

ProEst is an easy-to-use construction estimating software system that helps companies quickly create accurate, competitive bids. An intuitive user interface with a Microsoft Office look-and-feel lowers the learning curve to ease adoption. Built-in digital construction bid takeoff technology gives estimators the flexibility to perform takeoffs on-screen using electronic blueprints and a mouse or using paper plans and a digitizer. And on bid day, ProEst makes it easy to compare subcontractor quotes and select the best options for the project.

Mutual ProEst and Viewpoint customers, like HGC Construction Co. in Cincinnati, Ohio, can use their detailed estimate data to streamline a number of accounting tasks, such as job setup, complete with budget, phases, cost types and labor hours, and the creation of purchase orders and inventory pick lists. "ProEst has been very responsive to our needs," said HGC Cost Engineer, Henry Frondorf, LEED AP. "We appreciate their commitment to ensuring a smooth integration process between ProEst and Viewpoint."

ProEst is available in three affordable subscription-based options: Standard, Professional and Enterprise. Each subscription provides worry free maintenance that includes unlimited telephone and e-mail support, along with all product updates and enhancements.
