Soon, more than half of construction materials will be purchased after being automatically quoted by computers. In addition, computers will predict labor duration more accurately than humans.
BidUnity.com automates the quoting process for glass industry suppliers and glazing contractors using our estimating platform and its interfaces. BidUnity.com is to the glass industry as kayak.com is to travel--we display costs to build equal product systems in a way that supports detailed comparison and feels like shopping.
How it works: We provide a cloud-based sales and estimating platform which calculates labor and material requirements based on the material specifications and elevations. We provide a turn key solution which includes using the project address to look up the applicable sales tax rates. In the same way that we get applicable tax rates by sending the project address to a tax computer, we can send material lists to suppliers' computers for optimized pricing. If not, BidUnity.com will calculate supplier pricing based on users' catalog multipliers for comparison to alternates.
