Features

WinEx GRADE provides extensive takeoff capabilities on wide range of formats including PDF, JPEG, TIF and BMP. It also offers the important feature of 2D and 3D shading maps for the facility of field operators. Complete accuracy in trench work, strata maps and other aspects of construction projects is provided by High Density Grid and Cell format.

Two important modules offered by WinEx GRADE are estimating and integration. The estimating module offers the important features of file import in Excel and PDF formats, 3D takeoff, item list, digitizer integration, and conceptual estimates.

WinEx GRADE can integrate with Microsoft Excel for the purpose of file creation and import. It also offers custom dashboard as its integrating feature. Instead of providing a wide range of complex features, most of which are simply not required for many businesses, WinEx GRADE offers key features with a simple user interface.

WinEx GRADE 5 Pros

  • The software uses Roctek LineTracker tool technology which provides swift tracking capabilities and thus simplifies the takeoff process.
  • The functional aspects of the software support a wide range of popular formats including PDF, JPG or TIF.
  • WinEx GRADE offers the capability of formatting reports and transferring information to Excel and Windows based estimating systems.
  • The software provides the option of 2D as well as 3D shading maps.
  • WinEx GRADE comes with built-in dual monitor and digitizer.

WinEx GRADE 2 Cons

  • The software supports only English language which limits its user base.
  • The software does not offer accounting and service management modules.

Competitors & Alternatives

As two major competitors of WinEx GRADE, we can include BuildTools Construction Management Platform and AccuBuild Construction Project Management. Considering that WinEx GRADE only offers selective features, both these software solutions offer a wider feature set compared to WinEx GRADE.

Other than accounting and estimating services provided by WinEx GRADE, BuildTools also offers separate modules for project management, service management and integration. All these modules are not offered by WinEx GRADE. However, it offers a wider range of options under the estimating modular compared to BuildTools.

Estimating features offered by WinEx GRADE that are absent on BuildTools include 3D takeoff, conceptual estimates, digitizer integration, and the option of importing files in PDF and Excel formats.

The other competitor, AccuBuild, also offers a richer feature set. Accounting, service management, and project management modules offered by AccuBild are not present on WinEx GRADE. On the other hand, AccuBuild does not offer the module of estimating.
