Mechanical estimating software generates, updates, and submits job estimates for the MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) and HVAC industries. Mechanical estimating, sometimes referenced as HVAC estimating, is a specific subset of construction estimating software. Generally, mechanical estimating software provides a database of labor costs and materials pricing, so that contractors can produce the most accurate estimates possible. With mechanical estimating software, contractors automate the estimating and procurement process so that bids can be created more quickly and accurately, thus resulting in winning more jobs. Mechanical estimating software can be used by commercial and residential companies in addition to industrial companies.
