MANCHESTER, NH – (December 12, 2011) ConEst Software Systems, an award-winning technology innovator of digital takeoff, estimating, design build, project management and billing software for the electrical, low voltage and structured cabling industries, today announced their latest release of SureCount Symbol Recognition Software. This new release of SureCount, version 4.0, reflects the product's ongoing evolution as the top electronic takeoff and symbol recognition software for electrical, low voltage and data cabling contractors.
The most dynamic of SureCount v4's new features is the program's ability to send material quantities directly into ConEst IntelliBid's takeoff complete with precise labor units and material prices. SureCount's patented technology eliminates the time-consuming task of counting and measuring from paper drawings and gives estimators the ability to view electronic plans onscreen, count and highlight symbols, measure distances and generate takeoff reports organized by system and drawing, significantly increasing takeoff speed and accuracy. SureCount's auto-count feature gives estimators the option to automatically locate and count repetitive items for takeoff. Auto-count can highlight and count at an average speed of more than 80 symbols per second!
"Estimating technology continues to expand, led by ConEst and our team of innovators", said George Hague, president & CEO of ConEst. "This latest SureCount release significantly streamlines material takeoff and estimating to give contractors the technology edge they need to compete in today's fiercely competitive bidding market. SureCount v4 enables contractors to bid more with greater accuracy and successful projects that consistently produce higher profits".
