Construction estimating excellence with Sigma

Sigma is a natural progression from Excel, while providing a better user experience – built specifically for construction – to build accurate estimates that are priced not only to win the job, but also to ensure profits. All this in just a handful of steps. Get the birds eye view on how in the 3 min video, or read more below…

The familiar feel of Excel

Sigma works just like a Microsoft Office program. Working in it feels just like Excel.

  • Fast, smooth, and easy data entry
  • Customizable templates
  • Easily share files with co-workers and clients

No errors or broken formulas

Sigma’s built-in formulas always work, so you never have to worry about calculation errors again. Sigma even alerts you when you leave a cell empty.

Platform that fits all sizes and types of projects

Sigma can handle all projects- no matter what size or type. The hierarchical structure in Sigma helps you maintain an overview while fitting your project exactly. Include extra notes, numbering formats, links, and images to make it your own.

Drag and drop to reuse historical data

Sigma makes it easy to move items from your database to your estimate, and vice versa, with a simple and familiar drag and drop function.

Whether you use items from your previous projects, from price databases or lists of materials from your suppliers, the simple drag and drop feature save you from typing in the data, and thus reduces the risk of errors.

Get more insight

Sigma’s insight view provides a comprehensive look at all project markups and adjustments, including gross profit, overhead, and allowances for risk and fees.

Adjust data from here and automatically redistribute it throughout the estimate.

Get a list for just about anything

With a few simple clicks, Sigma can extract any data you need, from all or only a certain part of your estimate. For example:

  • Material order lists
  • Activities with descriptions and durations
  • Supplier lists
  • Accounting and job costs
  • Descriptive quantities
  • Quality assurance and key items
  • Custom numbering or coding

Make changes from these lists and they update the entire estimate.
