We currently have an estimate system on Excel, the copy of which I enclose. It is on 2 separate sheets and the estimator enters this info every time (there is no dadabase to reuse). After saving the DOC it gives it a new name and the whole doc is saved instead of just the data, later to be merged into the doc. The first sheet is a summary sheet that has comments , sometimes they go separately to create a word document if there is too many comments. That sheet is given to a secretary that then types all this into a proposal program which is a very old DOS based unsupported ALpha 5 program , very unflexible. we need to eliminate that step , so that the estimator can create his own proposal after doing the initial numbers in EXCEL
I can fax you a copy of proposal the way we have today. We are not sure what is the best software to use, but may be ACCESS or may be even EXCEL
