Methvin Estimating Overview

What is Methvin Estimating?

Methvin Estimating is a construction management platform that aims to help contractors accurately estimate costs, submit and compare tenders, oversee scheduling, and manage projects. Key features include collaborative Gantt schedules, takeoff management, a tender portal, and agile project control.

With Methvin Estimating software, contractors can create more accurate estimates by dividing projects into smaller subsets with each cost documented in detail. Methvin automates aspects of the labor-intensive estimating process by integrating Java functions and allowing users to adjust the variables. Methvin’s online takeoff tools also facilitates real-time collaboration between team members from all over the world.

Methvin Estimating allows contractors to submit proposals online in the Tender Box. Clients can compare tenders as well as send and receive messages to ensure contractors stay up to date. Methvin offers clients the necessary tools to make informed decisions by dynamically linking bidding information such as cost estimates and construction schedules in one comprehensive spreadsheet.

Its a user friendly, cost effective and remote solution to manage construction projects.

able to do quick takeoff. Accessing project data on cloud from anywhere. No need to install software and carry your laptop everywhere.

GREAT PORTABLE TAKEOFF AND ESTIMATING TOOL

Quantity takeoffs/material estimates that are needed on for bidding works or current projects. The benefit of this is that you dont need to install this for each every computer. You just need to purchase the number of users at very reasonable amount.

able to do quick takeoff. Accessing project data on cloud from anywhere. No need to install software and carry your laptop everywhere.

Pros

It helped me uploading drawings quickly and doing take-offs. I liked user interface and and measurement tools available. It gives me option to export data in to PDF and excel formats. Resource and pricing module is best to workout labour, material and preparing rate analysis. And best thing is it is all integrated across its all features. Good to do cost control and agile management using project dashboard.

Cons

Overall it is good software. I would like to see more option for formatting takeoff measurements like line formats, colours. Also would like to see a combine dashboard for takeoff and pricing.

Quantity takeoffs/material estimates that are needed on for bidding works or current projects. The benefit of this is that you dont need to install this for each every computer. You just need to purchase the number of users at very reasonable amount.

Pros

Being a quantity surveyor, estimates and takeoffs are my main tool in doing my job. What I like about this tool is it is user friendly and can be easy to learn. Also I like the graphics resolution. The best part of this is you can access your projects anytime, anywhere you want even if you don’t bring your PC's or laptops and you can share your work with your team

Cons

Nothing. Maybe a few tweaks like if you can show the data you takeoff on the same screen like Planswift, but over all this is a great tool that you can use on all your projects

Pros

The system has been a lifesaver so far, and we are only utilizing a small percentage of it. Once I master one aspect I take on another and with each new function I am so thrilled.

Easy to use and amazing functionality!! The support team are amazing and extremely knowledgeable about all the features of the software.

Cons

There were some issues with the functionality that did not fit with our business model. I expressed this to the support staff and he took my concerns to his developers to work on adding these items in the future.
