Latest construction software developments – coming soon!
Tuesday, January 31st, 2017
At HBXL we are committed to regular development to make sure our users have the best and latest construction software on the market. Read on to find out what our latest construction software developments are and when you can get your hands on them…
Our industry leading construction contracts software has recently had its regular legal review to make sure all contracts automatically produced are watertight and up to date. Reviewed in conjunction with Barrister Hugh Saunders who has a broad commercial practice, specialising in construction and engineering and finance.
EstimatorXpress 2017 Spring update
To most, it will only feel like the beginning of the year but at HBXL we are already working on an update for our recent EstimatorXpress 2017 launch! The new improvements come from our Business Support Manager working in tandem with a long time user and supporter of HBXL , Lee Goodwin of Oakleafe Property Services. Lee focuses mostly on renovations and insurance work (at quite a scale of operation) so is the perfect building firm to work with on enhancements to this area of EstimatorXpress.
We think that listening to our users’ suggestions and ideas is an essential part of our development process and we are sure this plays a huge part in why our software is so well received by builders, developers and judging panels alike. Below I have outlined the first wave of improvements stemming from our work with Lee and there’s more to come!
Internal property protection workbooks
These are all about calculating the costs of safeguarding the existing property whilst internal works take place. For example, zip walls and floor protection to prevent dust and dirt of the site and materials from damaging the existing property the builder is working in.

ProjectXpert 2017 Spring update
Following on from the success of the ribbon feature addition into EstimatorXpress and PlansXpress, we have added a new ribbon feature to ProjectXpert! This new feature allows for easier and faster navigation as well as the improved benefit of a similar user experience across the software range.
Health & Safety Xpert 2017 update
Our brand new edition Health & Safety Xpert 2017 (OUT NOW) addresses HAVS, includes a new Ladder Inspection Report, has been updated for 4k monitors, includes a new important link to HSG 65, and of course has been reviewed for legal compliance.
The new Hand Arm Vibration exposure (HAVS) form helps builders and developers keep track of the time spent using hand held power tools to help them ensure that no staff exceed the daily limit as noted in the RA.
As mentioned, all Health & Safety Xpert updates also come with a general review of all the regulations to make sure all our builders are following the most recent requirements.
Keep up to date or get left behind!
At HBXL we firmly believe that if you aren’t up to date then you’re behind. Whether this is in relation to software developments or staying on top of latest regulation changes, the costs of falling behind can be severe. Give us a call on 0117 9167892 to make sure you’re software is up to date.
