Estimating Link is a system for construction estimating and bidding. It is appropriate for the major highway, environmental, bridge, site-work, civil projects, and state and private commercial work. 

Estimating Link bidding solution enables users to build and reuse task data from previous jobs and scale tasks to the amount of work done. The solution includes subcontractor/material and rate table comparisons and a fuel worksheet that automatically recalculates the appropriate resources. It also allows you to shift revenue sources to capitalize on quantity overruns or underruns. In addition, users can review their bids for any problems, and the application will alert them to potential hazards and oversights.

Pros

We have had to switch to remote estimating due to travel-related issues. Counting links has ensured our database contains the most recent additions and changes at all times on or off-site. In addition, I found it straightforward since I can easily make all the necessary modifications. And all our contractors also use the same platform, which is an added plus!

Cons

I wish there was an option to extract required data from previous jobs to generate it. For instance, I am compiling all the item numbers and associated cost estimates from a few jobs. And using them to come up with estimates for similar jobs quickly.
