Bidcon: Estimating Software
Bidcon is a scalable costing tool that contains flexible and dynamic templates and reports, ensuring the user can quickly identify the most cost-effective solutions and revise estimates as required.
It is also available with a BIM option, Bidcon BIM, which allows the user to perform a takeoff from an IFC model and to then share quantities and costs with Asta Powerproject BIM – providing the option to work in a 5D environment.
Based on a powerful SQL database, Bidcon helps you improve efficiency in managing your bids and handing them over to the next stage.
