Project details

Add Vendor

This is a database of your vendors. Place a check by each vendor that you will be receiving a bid from on this project and select add selected vendors. This records vendors and their information. Select phases of project that will be quoted such as lights, gear, fire alarm etc. As the quotes come in just record the quote under the corresponding vendor.  The program will select the lowest vendor and their quote.

Material orders and cost

You can record your submittal information with dates received and sent. Record your labor rate and burden which will be applied to the man-hours allotted for each phase of work. Add miscellaneous items such as blue prints, travel, and rentals in the miscellaneous section.

Temp Poles

This is for our electrical contractors. With the rising cost of providing temp poles its is more important now than ever to keep up with them. Record when set and retrieved on this page.

Change Order/RFI

Produce and record Change Orders and RFI.

Summary Page

Produces a cost summary of the project.

Time Keeper

This item is worth the price of the program and has proven to be a motivator. You record all of the project phases such as lights. Gear, fire alarm, into as many phases as you like. You place the man-hours per phase into the program. You provide this information to your superintendent and each week he provides you with the time spent per phase.

The program adjusts the percentage used, percentage left. You provide a new sheet each week with the adjusted time. It shows where you are good and where you need help before it is too late. It has been proven that if the time left over is split you can count on the project coming in on time. Everyone wins.

Also provided is a crew calculator which shows how many days left to finish with your choice of man power. When you can see on paper that you have 12 days for 1 man to finish or 3 days for 4 men you will be amassed how often they elect smaller crews.

This is just a summary of what the Bid Keeper does. It forces you to be a better project manager just by using it.
