    "Rapid Tender have provided us with a quality and personal service, delivering quickly on every tender. They have developed their software in line with Client requirements, resulting in quicker turnarounds and lower costs"

    Estimating in London

    365 days ago Aidan and I decided to leave our jobs and commence our journey building Rapid Tender.

    To begin with, we wanted to solve the pain of estimators everywhere who spend days on end (and too many late nights!) manually counting symbols from piles of tender drawings.

    By around April this year we had succeeded in releasing the first version of our service which allowed us to prepare quantities from drawings almost twice as fast as it's possible to do manually, while also increasing accuracy.

    Now a year on, our service has evolved an incredible amount:

    • Speed: We can now complete drawing take offs up to 5 times quicker than a manual count and in most cases have a completed job returned within 24 hours.

    • Accuracy: From the start accuracy has been a core part of our service—it's no use quantifying drawings in record time if the counts aren't right. We've doubled down on accuracy and our processes are now so robust, that our outputs are orders of magnitude more accurate than manual counts.

    We've also expanded our service to solve more of the problems estimators face:

    • Pricing Schedule Converter: We now take any pricing schedule, be it PDF or Excel, and convert that into a estimate file ready for import into your estimating software (we support Cypher1 & SEC with Estimation to follow)—gone are the days of having to waste your time manually re-typing a pricing schedule into estimating software, and all the errors and mistakes that go along with that.

    • Automatic Import of Quantities: This is a huge addition to our service. Not only can we do drawing take offs in record time, that are much more accurate, and convert your pricing schedule into an estimate, but we now also take those quantities and import them directly into your estimating software. This means all you need to do is add your prices and fit times and you're ready to go.

    More than anything though, our service has evolved from solving the pain estimators face to improving the bottom line of a business.

    Given a few data points about your business, we can now demonstrate how using our service will:

    • Reduce Risk: Save your business from tens to hundreds of thousands in tender mistakes that make it on to site.

    • Reduce Costs and increase turnover: Turn your estimating department into an efficient, killer resource that's much more effective at winning work and thereby increasing the turnover of your business.

    We're looking forward to another year of helping businesses take a competitive advantage in a traditional industry and are ready to help you now.

    If you're a director ready to increase your turnover, reduce your risk and costs send us a few details and we'll put together a proposal tailored to your business.

    If you're an estimator wondering how you're going to meet your next deadline—email us on now@rapidtender.com for a trial.
