TurboBid is an electrical estimating software program that is designed to help all electrical and low voltage contractors win more profitable business by providing them with a systematic process to identify all their costs, maximize crew productivity and improve their professional image.
TurboBid's On-Screen Take-Off interface allows you to quickly complete your take-off by using digital prints that you view on your computer screen. You can load scanned plans as well as import directly from .TIF, .PDF - Adobe, .DXF, .DWF, .DWG - AutoCAD, .PLN - Dodge Plan files, .JPG, and more. You can also download plans directly from many online plan rooms. You can even use a digital camera to take a picture of your blueprints.
Simply click on the symbols on your digital print to add the quantity count, or linear measurements, into TurboBid. A red slash mark (/) will be used to mark the symbol just like you would on paper prints. The quantity counts and/or linear measurements are then automatically added into TurboBid's take-off tab.
You may also use the following optional TurboBid Symbol Library to add symbols to your prints for value engineering or for design build. Each symbol is also available with a red circle around it. These red circled symbols can be used for value engineering to easily identify the symbols that you have added to the blueprint.
