Competition is tough. To win more contracts and ensure project profitability, your estimates need to be more precise than ever – and with Sage 100 Contractor, you can put your best bid forward.

Why Sage 100 Contractor

Sage 100 Contractor offers several features that allow you to build bids quickly and precisely, including (but not limited to):

  • Trade-specific databases
  • Smart assemblies
  • Digital plan takeoff support

As a bonus, Sage 100 Contractor considers accounting, job costing, and project management in its estimating process. Then, when your bid is approved, Sage’s software feeds the appropriate data seamlessly into operations and across your business. That means no data loss, no redundant entry, and no wasted effort.


Are you using a manual or generic spreadsheet approach to manage takeoffs? Switch to Sage 100 Contractor and get turbo-charged takeoffs instead – all of Sage 100 Contractor’s packages can cut takeoff time by 50% or more. Once you choose a takeoff method, all that’s left to do is pull individual items or groups of items from an industry-specific database directly into your bid worksheet.
