As the name suggests…EstimatorXpress is seriously fast!

OVER 600 COST ESTIMATING CALCULATORS

“What stress? It’s no longer down to me to remember every roll of lead and tube of mastic.”

Take the ‘attic block wall’ calculator. It’s loaded with priced blocks, a steel to build the wall on, plaster, skirting, materials for decoration, plus the associated labour. It’s all there. In picture form on screen. Don’t need the steel? You can delete it. No more broad-brush. Everything is itemised.

LIVE PRICE-TRACKED MATERIALS

“I was literally losing money from out-of-date prices. Not anymore.”

The built-in price book has well over 6000 resources from sand to steels, ties to tiles, basins to boilers, wall plugs to windows… Our unique Price Tracker+ keeps your price book up-to-date by scouring the internet for the latest prices. Got your own special prices? Add them in.

PRE-POPULATED LABOUR PRICE BOOK

“It comes with suggested trade rates. I can tweak when I need to – sadly always upwards!”

Within the ‘Price Book’, as well as the Material Price section, you’ll find the Labour section with the different trade rates.  The fields are pre-populated for each trade. You can leave as is, or adjust to reflect your local conditions. The same goes for Sub-Contract.

THE ’OTHER’ COSTS

“Before, I added a rough 10% to the cost of the build as a mark-up. How wrong was I!?”

Wastage. Wear & Tear. Overheads. Mark-up. Inflation. Crucial. You’re not quoting the full cost of a job without them. Yet it’s fiddly doing it yourself. That’s why EstimatorXpress does the calculations for you. Decide your percentages and that’s it.

INTELLIGENT DASHBOARD

“I check ‘mission control’ to see what my win rate is, what quotes need following up…”

The clever dashboard shows all your projects and automatically does a load of analysis to give you a visual overview of profit, cash flow, expenditure, work-in-progress and more. What type of jobs are looking the most profitable? Do more of those.

JOB OVERVIEW

“I’ve never had a better understanding of my jobs. This dashboard has been a lightbulb moment.” 

Look at all the job details at a glance for the most profitable outcome. Get all the info on the job costs, the profit and overheads, plus the cost to the customer. Choose to view the cost by cash flow, build phase, trade, resource, subcontract type. It’s amazing what comes to light…

BUSINESS-WINNING QUOTATION

“The feedback I get on the quotes is amazing. They literally win us work.”

People are swayed by appearance not just price. Customers who recognise quality and have a profitable job for you, want to see professionalism. And the quote that EstimatorXpress automatically produces from the estimate, says it all.

AUTO PROJECT ORGANISATION

“I can have three jobs on the go and know exactly what needs to be where, and when.”

Or more commonly known as a Build Programme or Gantt Chart. EstimatorXpress automatically produces one from the estimate. All you have to do is note when a delivery is postponed and watch the software push back everything else.

Get started for free

AUTO MATERIALS SCHEDULE

“I was trying to hold so much information in my head when all I needed was this bit of kit.”

From the estimate combined with your Build Programme, the software automatically produces lists of materials required by order date and build phase. Give to your merchant early to get deliveries scheduled in, and negotiate a discount while you’re at it. You’ll be more organised and quids in. Same for your plant schedule and labour required

Get started for free

YES TO COST REPORTS

“I don’t recognise myself! I talk about being ‘on budget’. I keep tabs on hours. It’s all about profit!”

You need more than an estimate and customer quotation. Readymade reports that show you cash in and out, a breakdown of your plant costs, your spend on labour hours, your sub-contractor outlay… keep you on track and across all your expenditure.

SMART SCHEDULING AND ROUNDING

“EstimatorXpress isn’t just about estimating, it’s about winning the work and then practically managing it too.”

The Rounding Tool will tell you the ideal pack size to order, and the actual ‘buyable lengths of timber etc and allows you to quote your customer the ‘all in’ price. A stage on from the Build Programme, the Smart Scheduler helps you actually book in labour, and order plant and materials on specified dates.

Before I discovered HBXL I was using paper and pencil for my estimates. Not surprisingly I was always forgetting something in the quote that either reduced my profit, or actually lost me money. Since using HBXL I reckon my win rate is better than 50%, which is all I can ask for. So I’m very pleased.
Graham Saunders, Trentace
We use Health & Safety Xpert daily on site as well as the office in order to comply with the constant changes in the H&S regs such as risk assessments and method statements. It helps make the job a lot, lot easier. We use the software no matter what size or sort of project. We now use it on everything from new builds, renovations, ground works, extensions, heating and plumbing jobs and any electrical work.
Mark Jones, MJ Building Services
My whole experience of the HBXL team, including the support I received from the tech guys and the Estimating Service estimators, was great – they are clearly used to dealing with builders and know how to fit communications around our busy working lives! With EstimatorXpress we know from the very beginning that we’ve priced the job right. It also saves us thousands of pounds in quantity surveyor fees, so even after a couple of projects the software has paid for itself. When we showed our accountant the software he was so impressed he left the meeting to call two other clients saying they need to take a look at it.
Charles OKell, UK Pro Build
SIMPLY OUTSTANDING!!! The software is a pleasure to use and has made the most boring task of manual estimating a thing of the past. Customer service and back up ‘just puts other companies to shame’. Well Done HBXL.
Bob, Worthy Builders, with HBXL since 20XX.
