Trimble’s WinEst Essentials is a cloud-hosted estimating software subscription designed for general contractors and specialty trades, including concrete, masonry and drywall contractors. The platform supports all phases of the estimating process, from initial conceptual budgeting to specialty execution, and provides estimators with efficiencies in estimate creation, precision and shareability without the hassle of managing multiple software subscriptions.

Designed specifically for the workflows of general and specialty contractors, the digital tool offers integration between Trimble’s WinEst e-Team and eTakeoff Dimension digital construction software to provide estimators with simplified workflows for 2D takeoff. By combining complementary tools in one subscription, the service provides a framework for consistent, standardized estimating processes and allows estimators to leverage best practices and premier data to increase both accuracy and productivity.

The WinEst Essentials subscription includes estimating software, digital takeoff software, cost modeling software, collaboration software, and managed data tools, as well as additional productivity tools.

It is available as part of Trimble Construction One, a connected, cloud-based construction management platform that drives speed, efficiency and accuracy at each phase of the construction project lifecycle. Using Trimble Construction One, contractors can leverage a purpose-built connected construction management platform that reveals the right information at the right time so organizations can make the right decisions.
