We developed a solution that provides quick, consistent and accurate cost estimates for a wide range of cranes manufactured by the client. Users have to enter basic parameters related to zone, capacity, travel length, span, speed, control types and so on, and the solution furnishes detailed cost estimates. Underpinning the solution is an SQL database that stores all the estimate data. This data can be easily retrieved and combined with user inputs for generating accurate bids within minutes. The interface makes the entire process more intuitive and less tedious.
- Estimate preparation for different classes of cranes
- Support for protection areas such as Safe Area, Zone1, Zone2
- Input-based automatic selection of Hoist
- Automatic and manual girder selection
- Powerline selection and calculations
The solution removed all hassles associated with determining cost estimates. It automated many of the processes, increasing the speed and efficiency with which bids could be submitted. This also eased the administrative overload for the company. The solution supported competitive bidding through accurate calculations and helped the client cut down unnecessary costs.
