Analysis and Comparison
Analysis and Comparison

Analysis and Comparison

  • Comparisons can include general discounts, trading discounts and specified adjustments for each Subcontractor. The Comparison contains an "Own Rate" value which can be set to include/exclude Resource Types (such as Labour, Plant, Materials etc) on an Item by Item basis or across the whole Enquiry
  • Un-priced Subcontractor's rates can be set as "Included" or a variety of types including Highest, Lowest or Average of the other Rates. Full analysis of a Subcontractors quote is provided
  • Rates can be compared as a variance against a selected Subcontractor or against the Own Rate values
  • The Items on this analysis can be limited to only those which vary by a percentage
  • Analysis of the rates allows the "best" Subcontractor to be selected. The rates for that Subcontractor can be entered directly into the Estimate Items, optionally removing existing elements of the Item's rates. This process can also be reversed, re-establishing the original Item build-ups
