Who can I connect with on EstimateOne?
EstimateOne helps you connect directly with builders so that you can view their projects. Building rapport with Builders
will go a long way to grow your business.
Connecting to Subcontractors directly through EstimateOne is in the works. For now, build rapport with Builders
and build your network of active Subbies.
Being able to find
Architects & Engineers is an active work in progress. At present, you can find Architect & Engineer details by accessing project documentation.
How do I make the most of EstimateOne?
Getting EstimateOne ready
Before starting anything else, we need to make sure you've provided all the right information to EstimateOne to make it work for you. You can do that by setting up your account.
Finding Work (aka Lead Generation)
Suppliers can quickly search for your products, brands, and competitors
using the EstimateOne keyword search.
What do I get when I upgrade?
EstimateOne free membership is limited in two ways. Free members cannot;
- View projects with a total budget larger than $10m.
- View who the successful builder is.
To unlock these two features, you must upgrade to a paid membership.
How can I use these features?
Viewing projects larger than $10m in value is vital for Suppliers who are not limited by labour constraints. Many subcontractors prefer to work on smaller projects, and therefore do not need to view large projects. Suppliers do not often have this problem.
More extensive projects require more massive quantities to complete, which is a significant benefit to suppliers. For example, an electrical supplier can supply 20 power points for a house or 2,000 power points for a $100m tower in the CBD.
Viewing the winning builder on a tender will be beneficial if you've been following a project for a while, you've priced at tender stage, but haven't heard back from anyone about your quote in quite some time. Due to the nature of construction, suppliers are often the last to be notified, which may not give you enough lead time.
For example, a furniture supplier knows a specified item has a 16-week lead time. Once a builder is awarded, the supplier can find the winning builder on EstimateOne and let them know that the item needs to be ordered long in advance. Without knowing the winning builder, the supplier may be passed off to a competitor with a smaller lead time.
