I could not be more satisfied, and it is true that a good part of the success of our business is due to the help of CostMiner."
"CostMiner is the most beneficial and cost-effective QS system we have used, and we are pleased to have changed to it. It is so accurate and easy to use. The support we had setting it up was great, and with their help set it up specifically for our needs. I would highly recommend trying it."

"In few words, this week one of our cost engineers was able to to the full measurements for budgeting a 96 IBIS hotel, in only 4 days! It simply works!"
James P. Director
"I love the fact that it’s cloud-based and I can access it anywhere. I have a Mac and it’s incredibly hard to find takeoff software which is compatible. It’s also very User/friendly, providing everything you need whilst remaining simple to use."
Nico W. CEO
"Fast easy effective quotations, saves plenty of time, love all the features. don't use all of them yet. can do full quotations invoicing etc from 1 app, it's such an easy to use app. would recommend
Show what matters. Our flexible estimating table allows you to only show the fields that are relevant to you and your client. Tweak the structure to lay your items out the way you want them to be laid out.
Calculate items based on measurements using the Quantity Table. Measure each item to have it summarised in the estimate, and apply width, depth, and height to your measurements by filling in the appropriate column.
The expression calculator is available in both the Estimate Table and the Quantity Table, whether your're working in Imperial or Metric. Its extensive function list allows you to easily perform the most complex calculations - even for the pitch of a roof or the Volume of a Concrete Pier.
Easily see all rates and cost for every item in your estimate, and whether or not it was based on a template. You can explode out all composite rates to see a simple list of the rates and derived quantities.
Produce a shopping list which is broken down into your various categories (like materials, labour, etc). The shopping list can also show all the individual items related to your composite rates - so you know EXACTLY what supplies you need to order.
You can upload your CAD, PDF and image floor plans directly into CostMiner for takeoff. You can upload as a vector file to maintain image quality and give you the ability to snap to points. Or, upload as a raster file to take advantage of the improved performance on larger files.
Find a known measurement on the page and quickly scale in either Imperial or Metric. Have a plan with vertical and horizontal values? That isn't a problem - CostMiner lets you scale in both directions!
You can measure area, lengths or counts and assign them a colour for easier reference. You can also add and remove points to takeoffs if you have missed them previously.
Save time by using the measurements that you already have for other items in your estimate. If you have already taken off the area an item, easily use the perimeter for that value somewhere else.
CostMiner has a handful of built-in reports that are useful for most companies. But if you want to create something new, or modify what we've created for you, you can use our built-in HTML report editor.
Quickly find the status of all your jobs with our job report. This will show you the overall cost for each job as well as a grand total for all outstanding work, so you know exactly where you stand.
Find the quantities and rates that were used for estimating across a group of jobs. The Item Analysis Template report presents the information for each of the Item Templates that were used in the estimates, and allows analysing the accuracy of the rates and/or Job Estimate.
You can export to Excel while keeping all formulas and values, and maintaining the estimate formatting. Then you can easily share it with those not using CostMiner, or import it into other systems if you need to.
If you're frequently estimating the same type of job (eg. single story homes, doubles, etc), you can use the job template system to easily create, modify, and duplicate your templates for use with future estimates.
Forget single items - use CostMiner to setup composite rates, or a bundle with subitems. Costminer’s composite rates have the power to define configurable items, so that you can only choose the options that make sense.
CostMiner allows you to store a global values that are shared across that particular job. You can then apply your shared quantity to any line item, and if the global value changes then it will update throughout your estimate. Shared Quantities and Measurements can be defined on the fly or set up within a Job Template!
Some estimating packages are restrictive in the resource types that you can use with their packages. With CostMiner you can add as many as you like and they will all be reflected in your reports and exports.
