Sirius GT - Construction Accounting Software

Sirius Estimating is designed for quick and accurate assembly of all aspects of a project into a complete bid. When you receive the contract, the estimate can be automatically transferred to Sirius Job Cost and Item (AIA) Billing applications. Sirius Estimating is designed around the estimating database, which you can build manually, load from your Sirius Inventory, or load from one of several supported pricing services. Using the database, you can build and update item assemblies (bill of materials) to speed the creation of an estimate.

The takeoff (estimate input/update) is on-line and enables you to enter items, call in assemblies, or select items from the database with ease. Costs are controlled by labor, material, and four other user defined cost types within each phase of the project. Labor rates, labor fringes, taxes, overhead and profit are automatically calculated for each item. Estimate templates can also be set up to be called in and modified as needed.

Multiple estimators are handled within Sirius Estimating and each estimators' projects are kept separate while all have access to the common database and assemblies.
