Maderasoft Estimator: Powerful Purchasing Database at a Low Cost

Maderasoft developer Lorin Boyer and power user Jason French will do a demonstration of the power of his less that $1,000 piece of estimating and purchasing software. He will answer your questions and show how this software can be used in conjuction with or as a substitude for higher priced products.  His product holds vendors, resources, prices, takeoffs by the plan and will assist in calculating estimates on custom jobs and custom chnges on your portfolio of in-house plans.  Several Maderasoft users will be in attendance to add their input into the usefulness of this technology. 

What You Will Learn:

  • Why Maderasoft is still in Excel and why that is better than a pure database application
