Estimate Tables

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.

Granular Quantity Calculations

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.

Expression Calculator

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.

Extensive Rate Breakdowns

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.

Job Progress Status

Easily check whether a job has started, is in progress, or has been completed. Filter through all jobs based on their status.

Progress Claims

Print out progress certificates when making progress claims. You can create multiple progress certificates per job and easily keep a record of all claims made.

Quotes and Invoices

Stay on brand with your quotations and invoices by using your company logo. Attach calculations and takeoffs from the job to justify your quote or invoice. Quotes and invoices can be directly exported to Quickbooks and Xero via our integration.

Shopping List

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.

Plan Import

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.

Non Uniform Scale

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!

Measure Anything

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.

Reusable Outlines

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.

Create Your Own (or built in)

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.

Job Reporting

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.

Item Analytics

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.

Export to Excel

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.

Job Templates

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.

Composite Rates

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.

Shared Quantities and Measurements

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!

Custom Resource Types

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.

Manage Users

Whether you are a contract estimator, or a multi use company, you can easily invite users to your business space (and remove them if you need to).

Manage Spaces

If you work with different companies, or manage different divisions, you can create multiple business spaces in your CostMiner account to help keep thing separate. As a contract estimator, you can also easily be invited to a customer's business space.

View Only Jobs

You can share read-only access to an estimate with CostMiner. We conveniently set up a link that you can give anyone, as well as allow you to assign an expiration date for added security.

Totally Online

Being a browser based tool, CostMiner is accessible anywhere you need it and on whatever operating system - Windows, Linux, and even Mac (hallelujah). Yes you read that right, you can finally use quality estimating software on your Mac! And being cloud based, you can share your work with anyone around the world, at any time you want.
