What is Electrical Estimating? Know the Benefits of Red Rhino Electrical Estimating Software

What is electrical estimating? Electrical estimating is calculating the cost to complete an electrical project!                                          

Are you sick and tired of guessing and shooting from the hip when bidding electrical projects?

Estimating electrical isn’t easy. It just takes time. You have to get your head in the blueprints or in the job your bidding. There are hundreds of details that you must catch and understand. It is tedious and requires a great deal of concentration.

Funny story: I have talked with hundreds of electrical contractors who inquired about Red Rhino, and for curiosity, I ask, “How do you estimate projects without using estimating Software?” One guy without missing a beat said, “I just use a dartboard!”

The answer really caught me off guard and after I picked myself up off the floor from laughing, he told me he was still estimating manually,  and he felt like he was in the dark when he estimated projects. He felt like he was guessing how many hours it would really take to do projects.

I know the feeling – without software, there is a lot of uncertainty bidding jobs.

Estimating manually without software is more like “Guess-ti-mating”. It is torture.
