BUILD Q2 2019

Q2 2019 BUILD 95 Our clients’ reviews: Tom J. Director Excellent software, especially when compared to its peers. Easy interaction with Excel and similar functionality too. Assemblies feature stands it out from the crowd, combining quan- tity and cost production into single easily customisable objects. Brian E. Estimating Manager Had been reviewing many software packages but none gave us what we needed until we found CostOS. The user defina- ble columns gave us the ability to customize the exactly what we needed. In addition, the ability to seamlessly interact with Primavera P6 was a bonus. The appearance and Excel type use made use easy. Post purchase service provided by Nomitech and their local partner Estimating Plus was exemplary. Andy C. Senior Estimator Comments: Having worked with CostOS for just over a year now, my enthusiasm for it has grown significantly. Although initially it may not seem the most intuitive to use, once you have grasped the concepts and a basic understanding it can become a really powerful tool. Learning how to create complex cost models has become a rewarding experience and saved much time on the current pro- ject. I have also always been impressed with the response team at CostOS in providing support and the on-going development of the software. Hasan G. Technical Office Manager I’ve been using CostOS since 2010, my business area about cost estimate and cost control in civil works (housing unit, steel construction, hospital, hotel etc.) CostOS is a versatile program and it is developing very fast. It responds to all kinds of needs. All modules are working perfectly and compatible. BIM module and Primavera are running without problems. I connected our ERP system with CostOS and so we have closed Cost Control and Working schedule process circle. This software is running with Oracle and all type SQL database without problems and for that reason, just use your imagination. Ahmed Z. BIM Cost Manager We have tried many BIM costing tools on the market and only CostOS was able to meet the demands of everyday estimating and costing, while also facilitating take-off from multiple BIM models. Pros: There are too many to go through. Main benefits including ability to cross-code a single rate to multiple methods of meas- urement; excel like bottom-up estimating where required; in- built spreadsheet; links to business Primavera; has an excellent 2D take-off tool for pdf and DWG quants production; well-struc- tured databases for resource rates; multiple columns to extend pricing options; and can be used to create cost assemblies which enable automatic take-off from BIM models, matched to database rates. Mike B. Pros: Ability to customize to fit our needs. Support. Cons: Haven’t found anything yet Overall: We looked for a very long time for a system we could be customize to meet our specific needs. Nomitech CostOS has met our expectations. The product continues to be improved making it a great fit for our company. The support team is very knowledgeable and helpful during our implementation. We are looking forward to a long-term relationship with Nomitech. Maciej K. BIM Integration Manager Pros: It’s great for structuring and analysing data in many areas and many dimensions. Very powerful when you start using effectively SQL queries. Has really good 3D take-off engine and helps to keep your estimates transparent. Alastair M. Database Coordinator Comments: Can operate at a very detailed level therefore famil- iarisation with the whole system takes time. Staff very helpful in resolving any operational issues.
