The new CATO Cost Planning module provides the ultimate tool for the construction professional. Combining the very latest technology with proven versatility, CATO Cost Planning provides a familiar spreadsheet style interface supported by new and easy to use explorer style navigation. The user has complete control over the number of levels to which the detail may be taken.
Costs may be developed with a project using the integrated "Rate Builder" or drawn from other projects. Advanced features include full integration with CADMeasure to provide dynamic measurement from CAD, which when combined with an all new Cost Modelling facility, provides a fast and effective tool upon which to advise on cost - with confidence!
Other facilities include the ability to create both versions and revisions of an estimate or cost plan; a powerful reporting tool with the ability to create report sets including cover sheets, appendices, exclusions and the like; and a comprehensive range of sortation facilities to allow alternative presentation of the cost plan including work group or package analysis for ongoing cost reporting once the project is live.
