SharpeSoft Inc. was founded in 1986 by an estimator discouraged with the estimating
software he found on the market. The programs available made the bidding process
difficult and unnatural since they did not allow estimators to bid the way they
were used to. Rather they required the user to follow a rigid format created by
a software developer who had no actual construction or estimating experience. These
companies took something that should be so simple and made it very difficult. We
decided to take a common sense approach and create an in-house program with the
same terminology and format used in the construction industry.
BidConnect is a FREE program that allows contractors to submit electronic bid files to agencies that use the SharpeSoft IPM application in their bid openings. The agency exports their bid schedule from IPM and makes the resulting file avaialble for bidders to download.
SharpeSoft IPM saves time - and time, as we all know, is money. If your agency personnel are creating the same jobs again and again - so one can work on engineers' estimates, and another on funding, and another on advertising, and yet another on progress pay estimates - then IPM will save you time - and money - by eliminating redundant paperwork and data entry.
Designed by an estimator, this user-friendly, comprehensive program
flows like an estimator thinks, allowing quicker, more efficient, job
winning bids. Its by far the easiest to learn and use, without
sacrificing advanced features & functionality.
