Joanna Mulgrew, director at HBXL said: “This software has been designed with the computer novice in mind. All users do is simply input dimensions and quantities into detailed on-screen drawings.

EstimatorXpress does the rest producing a completely accurate estimate which includes labour and material schedules. It’s so easy to use, painters and decorators quotes can be produced in just minutes”.

“Perfect for costing any domestic or light commercial, plastering or decorating job it allows for the right number of litres of paint, rolls of wallpaper, render and plastering materials”.

“Whether you’re rendering, renovating lathe and plaster, painting outside or inside, EstimatorXpress will not only cost it but work out how to manage the project as well”.

“The software doesn’t make mistakes when tired or overworked and it won’t forget the calculations and dimensions used if distracted. Also it won’t make errors in overlooking VAT, wastage, critical costs and/or profit and it even calculates the wear and tear of the tools used!”

The reason for its accuracy is because the software links daily to a number of builders merchant’s price lists via the internet.

These live material price lists mean the prices used in all the estimates are totally accurate because they are right up-to-date. Whether it’ a specific type of paint or brand, decorators and painters can quote with confidence knowing they are using and quoting prices from that day’s list.

Joanna added: “This is unlike anything else seen on the market and is a very affordable solution to producing estimates. We have a passion to help tradesmen win more business and improve their profitability and with HBXL’s support I’m convinced that by using this software decorators and painters across the country will find they win more business and become more profitable.”
