Attend Estimating With Microsoft Excel Seminar at IBS
Computerized estimating has become the standard in the construction industry over the last 17 years. As companies have computerized, they have first worked on their accounting operations.
The next priority for most builders has been to computerize their estimating functions. Of all the estimating programs that are available, the most widely used program in residential construction estimating is a simple spreadsheet.
Jay Christofferson, licensed general contractor, author and software developer, will demonstrate how builders can use Excel spreadsheets to set up their own project estimates during his "Estimating with Microsoft Excel" seminar.
Builders will be shown how to use the powerful features of Excel to make their estimating time quicker, more accurate and customized to fit their own needs. Methods for setting up customized estimates will be taught.

Though his commitment to developing computer solutions in management, communication and estimating for construction companies, Christofferson also has developed an Excel-based estimating program for small to medium builders and remodelers.
