Hard Dollar Corporation Shipping New Version of Its Integrated Cost Estimating & Project Management System

Latest Version Adds New Advanced Features in the Areas of Scheduling And Quote Management

TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Hard Dollar Corporation, provider of the world's only integrated cost estimating and project management system for the infrastructure construction industry, announced today it has commenced shipping an updated version of Hard Dollar® EOS(TM) (Estimating Office System) and Hard Dollar® PXS(TM) (Project Execution System). The new version 2000.2 includes many new enhancements, most notably to the system's quote management and scheduling features.

Version 2000.2 further expands the system's dynamic integration with Microsoft® Excel by linking Excel to Hard Dollar's robust quote management system. With this new capability, contractors can use Hard Dollar to record and evaluate the myriad of quotes received from subs and vendors on a typical project, to quickly find the best combination of bidders, even as quotes change at the last minute. With the new Excel integration, users can send quote information from Hard Dollar directly into Excel in a familiar row and column format for printing or further evaluation. "Most contractors are accustomed to performing the task of quote management using a spreadsheet," said Brad Barth, senior vice president of product management for Hard Dollar Corporation. "But a spreadsheet only takes you so far -- it doesn't provide nearly as much intelligence as Hard Dollar does. With this new integration, contractors can get all the benefits of managing quotes in Hard Dollar, without giving up that spreadsheet they've grown comfortable looking at."

In addition, 2000.2 offers new schedule output options, providing users the flexibility to print schedules on any size paper, in color or black and white, and on virtually any printer or plotter.

"This release amplifies the distance that exists between Hard Dollar's capabilities and those of its competitors," said Barth. "While our competitors are struggling to offer very basic scheduling and quote management capabilities, our customers are now enjoying enhancements to these features that have been available in Hard Dollar for many years. Meanwhile, we're developing next generation bidding and building technology that will even further widen the gap between Hard Dollar and other applications."

Hard Dollar EOS is the industry's premier estimating and bidding system, employed by thousands of estimators to compete for billions of dollars of infrastructure projects every month. Through its seamless integration with Microsoft® Word and Excel, EOS handles every stage of the bid process from prospecting through job launch. EOS tracks advertisements, assists in quantity takeoff, estimates costs, manages quotes, and generates proposals, budgets, schedules, purchase orders, and contract documents.

Hard Dollar PXS automates the entire construction process. Through its seamless integration with Hard Dollar EOS, Microsoft Word, and Excel, PXS handles planning, budgeting, procurement, scheduling, dispatching, timesheets, work progress tracking, submittals and other job "paperwork," cost control, change orders, cash flow, forecasting, multi-job coordination, and much more. PXS has the ability to augment existing systems or serve as one complete solution in a box.

Version 2000.2 is the second enhancement release from Hard Dollar this year, and is part of the company's ongoing product development plan for EOS and PXS. Hard Dollar's support services include a 24/7 help desk, plus a variety of training options including on-site, Internet, and regional classes. Hard Dollar also provides on-site consulting services through its Expert Services group. Its complementary products add even more value to EOS and PXS, and include Hard Dollar® PRICE(TM), Hard Dollar® FLEET(TM), Estimate Detail Databases, and Civil Engineering Account Code System.
