Brand new Building Regulations tool in EstimatorXpress 2019 – just released
This is no add-on you have to pay for – it’s included in the software. You can generate automated building regulation and specification notes directly from your estimate in EstimatorXpress 2019. It quickly provides a compact set of notes devised to comply with the multitude of documents referred to in Building Regulations. Print out or export to common formats like PDF and Word document. How useful is that!?
PlansXpress 2019 – out now
It has new functionality that allows you to rotate PDF plans as part of the Scan & Trace import process, handy if scanned plans are not quite straight.
Health & Safety Xpert 2019 – out now
Five new Toolbox Talks, three updates, plus the HS28 Contractor Questionnaire. We’ve also added a new sample Method Statement for the demolition of brick-built structures with asbestos cement sheet roof.
ContractsXpert 2019 – out now
You can now import ‘Assumptions & Omissions’ and ‘Provisional Sums’. The program runs as a 64-bit application, and the ‘Working hours’ section of the contract has a button to save the current working hours as the default on all new contracts. Plus you can choose between a light, blue or dark screen!
ProjectXpert 2019 – just launched
It includes some great new features. Improved appearance and usability on high DPI devices such as 4K monitors. New tools to configure header, footers & company logos on print outs. You can easily change a bar’s colour. And no need to install it on the same computer as EstimatorXpress 2019 to perform imports.
And the best bit?
The more products you choose the greater the benefits. All the programs cleverly talk to each other using one set of data, so your business could enjoy a totally integrated construction solution – saving you time, making you money, and generally helping you run a tighter ship.
