CoConstruct is a highly rated cloud-based, all-in-one construction management software designed for custom homebuilders and remodelers. The software and mobile app are designed to help residential contractors manage their teams, clients, projects and budgets all in one place.
“It is the only single-entry estimating system that allows each user to enter a piece of information once, and have that data flow directly from the estimate, specifications, selections, bids, change orders, budgets, and to and from QuickBooks with no double entry,” according to developer CoConstruct.
The app’s cross-feature integration means client choices will immediately update the price, budget and projected cost for both fixed-price and open-book projects.
Single-entry estimating allows contractors to create an estimate and automatically build specs and selections at the same time. Choose from templates to build your estimate, including advanced configuration for profit, taxes, contingency and more. The estimate data flows to the budget with your QuickBooks data, showing actual and projected cost-to-complete. CoConstruct also allows contractors to edit cost items from both the estimate and the selection sheet.
CoConstruct is also designed to help homebuilders streamline the bidding process. Spec, selection and estimate data flows right into bids, creating detailed, accurate requests without double entry. Trades who plan or do bid then get automatic reminders as the bid due date approaches. The winning bid is then pushed back into the corresponding line in the estimate to update your budget numbers.
The app also tracks change orders and expenses. Create and approve change orders online then automatically generate invoices in QuickBooks or Xero upon approval.
