In introducing Causeway Estimating and CAD Measure, Grays Drylining has been able to centralise its library of rates, standardise workflow processes across the company and achieve considerable improvements in productivity.
Part of the Grays Group, Grays Drylining is one of the largest drylining contractors in the UK and offers a comprehensive package of products and support services. The company had previously been using Excel to produce estimates but wanted to upgrade to a system that would offer a higher level of functionality, combined with ease of use.
Having considered a number of options, Grays Drylining selected Causeway Estimating for tender production, as well as CAD Measure for automated take-off from drawings. This has resulted in faster and more accurate production of estimates while also enabling a more consistent approach within the company.
For example, prior to implementing Causeway different people were using different sources of information to calculate rates. The central library of rates within Estimating now ensures that everyone is working with the same rates across the company so that discrepancies are avoided.
Another benefit is the ability to itemise individual items, rather than grouping them – as had been the case with Excel.
- Faster tender production.
- Reduced risk.
- Consistency across the company.
- Improved data management.
