ConstructionOffice software works with a variety of Microsoft Office applications, including Word, Excel, Outlook, and Project, to build a project management system designed specifically for the construction industry. Contractors who use ConstructionOffice benefit from enhanced data sharing features and Microsoft's familiar, easy-to-use interface design.
Over 50% of contractors use workbooks like Excel to estimate for projects, according to the American Society of Professional Estimators, and ConstructionOffice provides the most powerful Excel-based estimating module available. "I've been estimating with Excel for years," said Rex Majors of McAllen, Tx. "Once I saw what ConstructionOffice could do with Excel I wished I had found you 10 years ago."
ConstructionOffice users benefit from the flexibility and familiarity of Excel while taking advantage of powerful construction estimating necessities like reporting, markup, and scheduling integration. ConstructionOffice also integrates with QuickBooks, providing dynamic data-sharing technology for accounting and estimating not available in a typical Excel workbook.
ConstructionOffice also extends the power of Microsoft Word, the most popular word processing application for small businesses. With Construction Office, Microsoft Word and Outlook become an integrated document management system. Users can import Outlook contact information, automatically email documents as attachments, and set Outlook tasks and reminders-all from a toolbar within Microsoft Word.
