McCormick’s ABS estimating software helps manage projects. Contractors can hone in on a portion of a project inside the estimate and analyze how far along they are, relating actual job-site progress to their plans. Using that same capability, project managers or purchasing agents working for the contractor produce a discrete, “this-part-of-the-job-only” materials list. This speeds ordering of materials for just the upcoming portion of a given job. McCormick’s CAD Estimating interfaces between AutoCAD and McCormick’s estimating software, which focuses in on pieces of the project’s drawings that correspond to current (or past) pieces of the project.
