- [Chris] Estimating is made so much easier when you can use a computer program to do the math and store the information for you. One of the best and most popular programs for estimating, especially in the mechanical trades, is Trimble's Accubid Classic Pro. Today, we're going to look at the core features of Accubid Classic Pro, version 15. My name is Chris Randall and I'm an electrical contractor and estimator. Today, we're going to look at Accubid user interface, the job schedule screen. We'll talk about how to create a job, how to enter the job information, how to take off material items and assemblies. We will definitely talk about pricing the labor, and we'll come to a final price for the estimate. We'll also look at some of the other features that help estimators create a confident and accurate estimate. So fire up your computer, unroll your drawings, and let's get started.
