We spoke to JOEL NORMan, CHIEF ESTIMATOR AT GEORGIOU…
“I started using Expert Estimation in 2002 when I commenced work with Macmahons. I believe they were using an alternate estimating package that was DOS-based and they had just introduced Expert Estimation when I started which was a Windows-based package.
Previous to this I had only used Excel for pricing. So using a dedicated estimating software package was quite foreign to me but the benefits of using a package like Expert Estimation were outstanding for making last minutes changes to a bid. It was was quick, easy and accurate.
Expert Estimation enables bids to be priced in a package that is quick and easy to use and effortless to review with. We have not had the need to move away from Expert Estimation and have utilised it exclusively at my current company for nearly 15 years.
We are still using 2014 for the majority of our bids as we find it a terrific product; however we have started to trial Genesis over the past few months providing regular feedback on this new package.”
