“You’re going to have to get estimating software.” – Mike Holt

For those of you that are not familiar with Mike Holt, he is a well-respected author and developer of software, books and video training programs for the electrical industry. Click here for more information.

TurboBid is the only estimating software that Mike 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.

TurboBid’s founder, Bill Ruffner, was invited by Mike to come down to Florida and take part in filming his new estimating DVD. During filming, Mike made the following comment that made a lot of sense. The truth is that most guys that open their own shops are coming out of the field. While they might have been great electricians, running a successful contracting company takes a whole different skill set. You’re going to have to decide to become a business person.

Mike said “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?'”

Following is a video excerpt from Mike’s Electrical Estimating Deluxe DVD Package.

How Do You Find the Right Estimating Software?

Invest1How Do You Find the Right Estimating Software?

It can be a daunting task when you start to look for an estimating software program that is best suited for your own particular needs.  Every company is saying the exact same thing: Our software is easy to use, it is the most accurate, it is the most consistent, it will help you win more bids……… In fact, you might even start to think that they are all pretty much the same.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.

TurboBid is quickly becoming well known for both its estimating software’s capabilities as well as it’s stellar customer service.  All you have to do is listen to what our customers are saying and you’ll understand why.  But as a contractor who is not currently one of our customers, you have had very little contact, if any, with our company.

So how do you know if what we are saying is true?  Doesn’t every estimating software company make the claim that they are better than the next?  Sure, you could do your research and peruse the various blogs and forums on the internet and see all the positive press for TurboBid. While it would certainly help, would you truly be 100% convinced?  Or you could even go to Mike Holt’s website and see that TurboBid is listed as the “Best Buy” among his listing of major estimating software solutions. You might even discover that TurboBid was designed around the principles taught in Mike Holt’s Illustrated Guide to Electrical estimating.

Again, how do you know which is the best estimating program for you?

Just remember: Without using the software in real life situations, on real bids, you are just making a decision based on what others are saying. Instead of casually looking at a limited trial version, we want to help you really use the software and prove that TurboBid is a winning solution.  We are offering you the opportunity to utilize TurboBid for 14 days, performing actual takeoffs. This isn’t just a trial where you download the software and find out that you’re left on your own to figure things out. This trial includes the full support of our company.
