Software Description:

Exactal are the makers of CostX estimating software; used around the world in over 80 countries by quantity surveyors, builders, subcontractors and estimators, from companies both large and small. CostX contains our world-leading on-screen 2D and 3D/BIM takeoff, integrated workbook and customised report writer.

One of the key reasons for the increasing interest in CostX is its ability to work with BIM. As BIM becomes of more and more importance to the construction industry, people need to know that their estimating solution will be able to support them on the BIM projects they receive. CostX has a range of BIM compatible features, including support for Revit BIM files and IFCs, ability to automatically extract quantities or manually measure from the model, ability to add information (such as QS-ID information) to the model, ability to link 2D drawings to the BIM, ability to link BIM takeoffs to phraseologies, and more. In addition, a variety of 2D drawings (scanned, PDF, CAD and more) are still supported.

Exactal now has nine offices worldwide, covering 24 hours. For more information on CostX please contact us here.
