A 2 Hour Learning Curve, Pre-designed Items, Assemblies, Reports & Proposals = more PROFIT!

“BidBuilder construction estimating software has saved me countless hours not only because it is easy but also because of the updated pricing features. We build spec homes and with one click I know my estimate will be updated and right on the money. I can update this as I need, monthly, weekly, or daily! I am amazed at how fast I get my estimates done and the accuracy BidBuilder gives me is astonishing. BidBuilder has also placed me ahead of my competition because I get my estimate back to the client fast and know its accurate and without any surprises to either party.”

Ryan Mayberry
Northwest Building Company – NC

“We have been extremely pleased with BidBuilder and your staff. We were able to learn BidBuilder in 2 hours. It is adaptable to any style of estimating and can be tailored to anyone’s needs. Very impressive. The icing on the cake is that our first bid totaled $1,810,000 and the next contractors price was $1,811,000 with 4 other contractors within $75,000. If this is not the perfect example of the accuracy of BidBuilder, the dedication of the Digital Canal staff and the simplicity of the program I don’t know what is.”

The difference between BidBuilder Estimating Software and our SolidBuilder Design Software is all about what you are required to perform for your prospect …

BidBuilder estimating software is used when you are NOT designing. BidBuilder is used when you are asked to bid a project based on blue prints / plan drawings.

If you are creating the design and blueprints, then SolidBuilder Design Software will create a takeoff from your design as you design it.

Our Design Software (SolidBuilder) provides the ability to produce quick, accurate blueprints for building using a simple, intuitive interface. To see how our Design Software works and view Reports, Proposals and more sample output click Continue below.
