Trimble introduces Quest estimating software

By Jenny LescohierApril 14, 2021

Trimble debuted its Quest estimating software designed for civil engineering contractors who need detailed cost estimates to effectively bid and manage budgets for projects.

A cloud-based Software-as-a-Service, Quest is now available for demos and purchase.

Once the bid is developed, users can develop a blueprint in the Trimble Quest software.

The company said contractors, estimators and project managers can collaborate easily by communicating changes, tracking and recording on-site progress quantities, producing claim certificates and reporting on utilization of individual resources.

The Quest software also allows estimators to reuse costing libraries, rapidly produce detailed cost estimates and manage and compare supplier and subcontractor quotes to quickly price a bid.

“Armed with sophisticated, advanced estimating software, contractors can develop and manage construction cost estimates with real-world accuracy,” Nooner said. “Pricing bids, monitoring on-site progress and forecasting requirements are seamlessly handled by Trimble Quest’s innovative approach to budget management. Adding cost estimating and budget management to Trimble’s Connected Construction portfolio expands our civil software capabilities to better address preconstruction planning as part of the project lifecycle.”
