Sage announced the addition of new native-cloud innovations for bid leveling, collaboration, and insight in Sage Estimating, the most widely used cost estimating solution in the industry. Sage Estimating streamlines the estimating process, increases accuracy, and helps construction businesses win more jobs at the right price. Sage Estimating's new Sage BidMatrix native-cloud platform enables estimating teams to level bids, collaborate, and gain insights.

The solution helps estimators effectively manage the chaotic nature of the subcontractor selection process. Sage BidMatrix makes it easy to compare subcontractor bids, evaluate project risks, and optimize bid strategies for greater success. In addition, a new modern, easy-to-use web interface with powerful slice-and-dice capabilities, as well as the ability to leverage industry standard BI tools like Power BI, enables customers to analyze and gain insight from having all their estimating data centralized in the cloud.

Doran Contractors, a general contracting and construction management company, has projects with upwards of 100 different numbers coming in from subcontractors, making analysis and closing a bid daunting. They have contributed some of their big wins to Sage Estimating's strength during the closing.
