Efficiently and accurately link design, estimation, sales and purchasing with seamless back-office integration

Pipeline bridges the gap between design and estimation for real-time, automated takeoffs and simplifies the estimation and purchasing with bills of materials for each house. Options-driven changes flow seamlessly through the system, updating construction documents, purchasing and back-office data. Pipeline will pull information from multiple applications and integrate it into one useful information set to drive all processes.

Pipeline’s module-based functionality lets you buy only what your business needs.
