About Red Rhino

Red Rhino is a cloud-based electrical estimating tool for contractors, which aims to provide users with the tools to create accurate estimates whether in the field or in the office. The fully integrated system offers modules for estimating, biling, project management, and purchasing. Electrical contracting businesses can utilize Red Rhino to automate time consuming tasks with data from estimates synchronized across purchase orders and customer bills.

With Red Rhino, businesses only need to enter data such as customer information, project details, labor rates, and material specifications once for each job, when creating an estimate, and the data is then stored within the system for future use. Data can be transferred and accessed by estimators, field workers, project managers, purchasing agents, and any other personnel involved in the project, and as Red Rhino is a cloud-based system it can be accessed from anywhere via a web browser. Estimates can be created within Red Rhino using wizards and assemblies. Wizards are pre-configured estimates for installing a range of items including conduits, alarms, generators, and more, whilst assemblies can be used to input all the material needed for certain projects. Assemblies can be saved and re-used for common projects so that estimates can be created without the need to re-enter items individually.

Red Rhino also offers modules for purchasing, billing, and project management, and features including proposal generation, purchase orders, change orders, contract billing, time and materials billing, and project tracking. Project progress can be monitored using Red Rhino and the real-time financial data can be used to ensure projects remain within pre-defined budgets. Throughout each project time and materials can be tracked, allowing users to generate bills for customers in just one click once the project is complete, and invoices can be automatically generated and sent to clients to request payment.

    Great support, easy to use

    Reviewed on 2014/07/17

    Pros

    I have tried some of the other electrical estimating software systems, and this by far is the easiest and quickest way to go. They go out of their way to make sure you are successful with their program. It is web-based so you can use it anywhere.

    Cons

    I can't find anything negative about the program. I can use it on any computer.

    Red Rhino Estimating on the go.

    Reviewed on 2014/10/15

    Pros

    The key item that drew us to Red Rhino was the cost. The fact that we could pay for it monthly with no subscription was a key selling point for us a start up contractor. What has kept us using it is two fold, first and most important, we have been winning projects and making money on them. Second is the fact that as a cloud-based program, I can get access anywhere any time from any computer, which has come in very handy when I needed to give a client a quick estimate.

    Cons

    My only complaint about the program is the limited product library. We use a lot of Wire-Mold doing school remodels, and the existing selection is very limited. You can add items and build your own library, but that takes time, which as a newer company is something that is in very limited supply.

    Great Product

    Reviewed on 2016/09/08

    Pros

    The product is easy to learn and use. It's not a huge company so there's only a handful of people that you talk to. They really take the time to get to know you and your company and are there to help with any questions. It is also the most affordable option that we found and it seems to be pretty accurate once you get the hang of everything.

    Cons

    There are little videos that pop-up automatically on every page that are supposed to try and help you with whatever screen you happen to be on. They get annoying fast but can be turned off. No big deal really...

    Cons

    This is only specific to the one trade - electrical. All other trades are lacking in detail and specifics.
