Estimating software is the second most important part of growing your income.

Quick, efficient, profitable bidding can be a challenge.

  • When you’re running the business during the day, you’re at home or working late creating custom proposals at night.
  • Instead of using estimating software, you’re creating hand-written bids that can get lost in the shuffle of everyday operations (even though you’re writing the same thing over and over).
  • You’re spending hours creating custom proposals and drawings in excel, word, or QuickBooks.
  • You’re paying extra for a proposal software that doesn’t integrate to your other office applications.
  • Without a system in place for follow up, you’re losing new or existing business.

Not any more. As we were designing Arborgold’s Proposal and Estimating software, we listened to what the market wanted.

Quickly Add Programs/Packages

Great proposals don’t have to take “forever” to generate. Arborgold’s proposal tool saves you time. Say good by to “over and over” typing or copying/pasting.

Create pre-programmed packages that group together multiple services (with standard prizing) so when you add a program, you could be adding services, inventory, and equipment in a single click.

  • EXAMPLE: Create a PHC program that includes, dormant oil, fertilization, and insect control. When you add the program to the bid, all the services come in.
  • EXAMPLE: Create a “Pond” package that includes excavation, lining, pump, filter, edging, dirt, filling and all the labor resources.

Yes You Can Offer Service Group Options

How cool would it be if you could send a single proposal/estimate to a client or prospect that gave them a couple of different service options? With Arborgold, you can. Create more than one set of grouped line items that add up to it’s own sub-total. Present pricing options for 2 months OR 3 months of service. We dare you! Arborgold can handle it.

Calculate Resource and Job Costs

Because you can store job costs for any equipment, employee, or inventory, the moment you generate any estimate, you’re pre-building your job costs with each proposal. When you’re creating estimates at the job site, there’s no more “profit” guess work. Access detailed job cost reports at any time for any work order.
