This past year has been a big one for ConEst Software Systems, which was acquired by JDM Technology Group. The company is still operating independently and is innovating—especially in the area of BIM (building information modeling).
Late last year, the company got the ball rolling by partnering with GTP Services to create a new plug-in that integrates ConEst’s IntelliBid estimating software with 3D Revit designs with detailed construction costs. With this, design build project teams that require engineering, estimating, and 3D modeling can be a one-person operation.
Additionally, this further evolves BIM for electrical contractors by detailing bills of materials and labor hours for any installation including prefabrication and change-order management. This offers a solution between preconstruction and construction.
What sets ConEst Software Systems apart from the rest is that the technology company understands the needs of electrical/low voltage contractors in the electrical and low-voltage construction industry, offering targeted software solutions for takeoff, estimating, and project management.
Today, the company continues to offer innovative solutions to improve the estimating and project-management workflow, adding new functionality to its solution set on a regular basis.
While the company was acquired in March, ConEst Software Systems will still operate as a separate company with existing staff out of Manchester, but the new parent will give it the support and backing it needs to build on its success going forward.
When it comes to software for electrical/low voltage contractors, ConEst Software Systems stands out as a leader in the space, offering construction companies the ability to improve accuracy and automate workflows, ultimately leading to a better bottomline.
