Features and Changes

Windows 10 Compatible

Windows 10 compatible – enjoy using your new software on Microsoft’s latest version of Windows®! (See System Requirements)

Although we have not certified Windows 11 (or SQL 2019), there's no technical reason for the applications to not work with these Microsoft products/versions..

Program Tabs Improvements

  • In Quick Bid, Alternates and Change Orders are now sorted alphabetically rather than by the date they were created (sort order matches On-Screen Takeoff).
  • Add Materials and Labor totals to Condition Details Item Grid.
  • Show subtotals on the Equip, Subs, Other, Material, Labor, and Payroll Tabs.
  • Round Up, Down, or to the Nearest Container on Materials Tab.
  • New Markups Tab design to improve user experience (no more pop-up, modal window for Markup Detail - changes made to values are immediate, you will not have to 'Save/Cancel' on each Markup Detail screen).
  • Add a MyOnCenter Tab to Quick Bid to improving onboarding experience, provide access to the customer portal, and inform users of company and product news.

eQuotes Improvements and Fixes

  • Generate and Print an eQuote Comparison Report.
  • Add a Total Per Item column to the Supplier Webpage.
  • Allow a user to select which Items from a Supplier’s eQuote to accept – you can ‘cherry pick’ the exact Items you want to associate with a Supplier’s returned eQuote, even adjust the Supplier’s pricing if you like.

Schedule of Values

  • Allow users to create Schedule of Values.
  • Generate and print the Schedule of Values Detailed and Summary Reports.

Master Lists Improvements

  • Search for Items in Items List by Code, Section, Cost Code, Type, Manufacturer, or Description.
  • Option to show and hide the Section, Material Cost Code, Labor Cost Code, Type, and Manufacturer columns in the Item List.
  • Option to add Item Sizes, Styles, and Product Number columns in the Items List.
  • Select multiple criteria when filtering on the Master Items list.

Proposals, Exports, and Reports

Accounting Exports

  • Job Data File Export - allows you to export a somewhat “generic” CSV file that you can edit in Excel and then import into whatever Accounting or Project Management solution you like.
  • Accessing Accounting Exports requires your Quick Bid license to be under a current maintenance subscription.


  • Condition Detail Report updated – you can now print in landscape orientation with Production (labor) or in portrait orientation without production.
  • Update several Quick Bid reports per user feedback including the Job Cost Summary, Bid Summary, Purchasing, and Section Markups.
  • Add Phase # and Description Option to Accounting Exports.
  • Created additional Exports (Plexxis, JobCost, and Payroll).
  • The Bid Summary Report can be grouped by Condition Type.
  • You can now breakout Overhead and Profit separately from Conditions.
  • Material and Labor and Total Unit Price breakdowns available.
  • Job Cost Summary columns are now in same order as shown on Markups Details screen.
  • Display Crew and Manhours on the Section Markup Report.
  • Display a Grand Total on the Purchasing Report.
  • Add the Project Name to all Alternate/Change Order Reports.


  • Add proposal field that shows Conditions list without unit cost.
  • Add proposal field that shows Conditions list without unit cost and grouped by Area.
  • Updated the new Proposal Templates names to make them clearer based on customer feedback.
  • Provide additional fields and date format for Proposals:
    • [Contacts.email] – Contact email address
    • [Bid.Conditions] – All Conditions in Base Bid; Condition Name, Quantity 1, Notes, Total and Unit Cost
    • [Bid.Equipments] – Name (Description) and Total
    • [Bid.Others] – Name (Description) and Total

Major Fixes

  • Copying and pasting line items in a Condition Assemblies pastes the copied items 2 rows down instead of immediately below the focus point."
  • When dragging an Item into an eQuote or inviting a Supplier, the grid is expanding previously collapsed eQuote and setting focus at the top of the grid.
  • When changing Size/Style, Mat. Cost, Total, Waste, Units, or Supplier in the Materials grid, changing the price of an Item in an eQuote, Inviting or Removing a Supplier to/from an eQuote, or adding or removing and Item to/from an existing eQuote, the eQuotes grid would redraw and the user's focus would be placed at the top of the grid.
  • Update Quick Bid to support manual Condition Results from exported ConstructConnect Takeoff file.
  • Unchecking total ""Condition Price"" option from Bid Summary Report does not hide total condition price.
  • Overhead and Profit % in the Bid Summary Report are not calculating as expected when Bid includes Multi-areas for Subs, Equip, and Other expenses.
  • Type-ahead for Estimator on the Cover Sheet doesn't fill in Estimator when a user presses the <Enter> key.
  • Synchronize database logins/passwords if user(s) does not exist in Destination database.
  • Match existing contact and estimator information when importing eQuotes and Bid Packages.
