- Project Manager, to create and manage estimates for each project
- Reports Manager, to produce proposals, cost update reports, and bid bid requests

Estimate easily - the core of the program
- Add parts one by one, or a bunch at once using templates
- Arrange parts into separate groups using "components"
- Process alternates (a.k.a. " change orders ") and track how they affect the project's cost by defining statuses of Accepted , Undecided , or Declined
- Create multiple "projects" for a customer to define different phases. When you generate the proposal you can have each of them displayed individually then show a grand total at the bottom

What others are saying…
After doing my due diligence, almost all my sources pointed me to one program... Clear Estimates. This program is AMAZING! Clear Estimates, upon using it on its very first job, made me and extra $8000.00 in profit that I wouldn't have otherwise made.
- Ryan Match
Because it is so easily customized, Clear Estimates allows us the ability to be as broad or as narrow in scope as the project requires. It then allows us to quickly print a linked Proposal automatically, containing all the details we considered for that project during the estimating process. We have tried several other estimating programs and have attempted to customize Excel templates. For our business, your product is by far the best solution we have found. Thanks!
