New integrated Web-based pricing tool helps estimators to easily request price quotes from suppliers
The latest release of MEP Estimating, Viewpoint’s estimating product specifically designed to meet the needs of subcontractors working in the mechanical, electrical, HVAC and plumbing trades, features a new integrated Web-based pricing tool designed to speed RFQ communications between the contractor and their material suppliers.
With Viewpoint Pricer estimators will now be able to request price quotes from suppliers from within MEP Estimating. Suppliers will be able to login to the Pricer web application to manage all their RFQs in one location.
Additionally, Digital Takeoff functionality has been enhanced with features like Continuous Line, to speed takeoff of a run of piping or ductwork. According to Viewpoint, estimators can quickly and accurately perform a takeoff directly from almost any digital file, avoiding the need for a digitizer board, a stylus pen or even a set of paper plans.
