Why CostOS is the Best Estimating Software Program

Bewertet am 16.10.2018

Our overall experience with the software has been good and we are working more efficiently with...

Our overall experience with the software has been good and we are working more efficiently with this software than in the past. In the past we had to use 3 different software programs to accomplish the same work and there was a lot of wasted time spent transferring data from one software to another. Now everything is performed directly inside of CostOS. The ability to have more than one estimator working on the same estimate at the same time has also significantly improved our collaboration efforts between different office locations. Overall we are very happy with choosing CostOS and still believe it is the best estimating software program on the market.

Vorteile

- Program is a database driven application, not a file based application
- Licensing is based on concurrent license use and not tied to specific people
- Menus and icons are laid out in a logical and consistent manner
- Can have more than one estimator working in an estimate at the same time
- Can link 2D and 3D takeoffs to estimate line items all within the same platform
- Can visualize the 2D and 3D takeoffs when clicking on estimate line items
- Can open up 4 estimates at the same time and can copy and paste line items from one estimate to another
- Can build powerful Assemblies for pricing self-perform work
- Can completely customize how Indirect Costs are calculated and spread back across the estimate
- Can import and export to and from Excel easily
- Can easily price labor using crews and productivity rates
- Can easily set up and use multiple Work Breakdown Structures
- Database is easy to manage and maintain
- Works well in a Remote Desktop Environment
- Can hide estimate line items and apply filters easily
- Estimate spreadsheet looks and feels like Excel, but is a database application
- Can set up custom columns with custom formulas
- Can save custom layouts and share layouts with other users

Nachteile

- The 2D Takeoff module works okay overall, but needs some improvements and enhancements
- The Report writer is difficult and complicated to learn and takes a long time to build custom reports
- We have had some technical issues with 3D Takeoffs that have only been resolved using workarounds and have not been completely resolved yet
- Technical support is always fast to respond, but doesn't always know how to solve the problems
- If technical support requires help from the developers in Greece, the response time can be slow due to the time difference
- Each estimate must have a unique name or the Variance reports don't work right
- Consulting fees for software customization are expensive, so we have to do a lot of customization in house

Unbeatable bridge to Excel

Bewertet am 26.11.2018

CostOS helps carving the estimating processes in a company. Since these are 100% internal information that circulates between users/departments, those processes are naturally characterised by Excel/email/handwritten information.
Through it's Excel interface capabilities, you are not left with a black or white decision, but you can add existing logics to the workflow, which may now be governed through CostOS. However, adding new Excel sheets or assemblies is feasable at any given time...

Vorteile

As the header indicates, the fact that the software reaches out to anybody feeling good with Excel is an absolute selling argument. Everybody uses Excel and there are thousands of more or less helpful Excel files out there: this software doesn't tell you to reprogram everything, but offers the ability to just link any cell you like from your Excell sheet to any position in the commercial software.
Since we have used this functionality heavily, the question was not how to reprogram the 5000manhour Excelfile, but how to most efficiently give it a nice interview form so that it interacts with the onboard excelfile most conviniently.

Also, the software has a number of interfaces at any level of detail:
(interview) assembly level
Excel interface
BoQ
Database
Reports

9 different group codes implementable, extensive layout (GUI) customisations, functions implementable at different locations

Nachteile

Reports generator: a third party software with functionality and limitations bound to the provider

This will apply only to users making use of the Excel exchange functionality massively: extremely high number of queries will result in a long processing time before delivering the results to the BoQ table.

The extensive programming possibilities do require a very good feeling for programming: Java, SQL: information exchange between GUI, Database, internal applications like the Excel interface and/or the assemblies

Great costing and estimating software for construction

Bewertet am 25.6.2023

Vorteile

CostOS is one of the best costing and estimating software in the construction field and it offers many of useful and helpful features that helps users to calculate the cost of any BOQ to the smallest details. I like the use interface of CostOS it is beautiful and easy to find any option. Also, I like the way it deals with tables and data to make a data universe for your projects and estimates.

Nachteile

CostOS has a very large number of functions and details so it is not easy to learn and does not have learning material on the internet. CostOS is not a cloud based software so you need to buy a server to host the software and this will make a large increase in the cost of the software.

The reporting module needs to be polished to give slicker more modern looking reports

Structured data, 5D estimates, consistent and reliable estimation, transparent BOQ.

Vorteile

It's great for structuring and analyzing data in many areas and many dimensions. Very powerful when you start using effectively SQL queries. Has really good 3D take-off engine and helps to keep your estimates transparent.

Nachteile

If you're a superuser you need a while to understand all details of it and without knowing at least basics of SQL you won't get it's full potential.

Vorteile

CostOS System builded to cover all operations in the estimation process, which begins with importing the BOQ from the client to output the proposal to the client, all that operations are automated, and no need for third-party operations or tools.

Nachteile

CostOS needs a huge effort to build the templates and set up, in addition to the connections and relationships.

We have tried many BIM costing tools on the market and only CostOS was able to meet the demands of everyday estimating and costing, while also facilitating take-off from multiple BIM models.

Pros: There are too many to go through. Main benefits including ability to cross-code a single rate to multiple methods of measurement; excel like bottom-up estimating where required; in-built spreadsheet; links to business Primavera; has an excellent 2D take-off tool for pdf and DWG quants production; well structured databases for resource rates; multiple columns to extend pricing options; and can be used to create cost assemblies which enable automatic take-off from BIM models, matched to database rates.

Cons: With so many configuration options, you will need to spend a little time getting used to the many features so you can create a workflow that suits your needs.

We are in the beginning phase to use the software. We are still writing assemblies, but we like the onscreen take off option.

Vorteile

I've been using since 2010, my business area about cost estimate and cost control in civil works (housing unit, steel construction, hospital, hotel etc.) CostOs is a versatile program and it is developing very fast.It responds to all kinds of needs. All modules is working perfectly and compatible. BIM module and Primavera is It is running without problems. I connected our ERP system with CostOs and so we are closed Cost Control and Working schedulle process circle. This software is running with Oracle and all type SQL database without problems and that reason, just use your imagination.

Having worked with CostOS for just over a year now, my enthusiasm for it has grown significantly. Although initially it may not seem the most intuitive to use, once you have grasped the concepts and a basic understanding it can become a really powerful tool.
Learning how to create complex cost models has become a rewarding experience and saved much time on the current project. I have also always been impressed with the responce team at CostOS in providing support and the on going development of the software.
