For those of you that don’t know Mike Holt, he is a well-respected author and developer of software, books and video training programs.

TurboBid is the only estimating software that Mike Holt recommends. He has worked closely with the folks at TurboBid to ensure that it follows the same terminology and principles that he teaches in his estimating course.

Mike makes the following statement in his estimating DVD that really sums up the issue:
“You need to make a decision. The reality is that if you’re going to be a business person, you’re going to have to get estimating software. You need to make the decision that, ‘I’m going to be a business person’. Once you’ve made that decision, that’s your goal. Then number two is, ‘What’s your plan? How are you going to get there? What are you going to have to do?’ ”
