One thing that sets SharpeSoft off from other construction management and cost-estimating software developers is that basic training on our systems is included with purchase. Usually, this is enough to get users off and running and producing estimates or tracking job progress almost immediately, but there is a lot that isn't covered in the basic training. While our systems are designed to make cost estimating and project management easy and intuitive, you can get a lot more value from your software investment by taking one of our supplemental training classes.

In fact, there is a lot more to know about your software than we are able to squeeze into your intial training.

For example, would you like to know how to use ‘What If’ scenarios to estimate a job bid item in different ways to find the most cost effective way to bid that item?

Do you want to know how to fine-tune your fuel and oil usage to get the maximum efficiency from your equipment?

Do you want to know the best way to configure your labor and equipment rates, and how to handle labor and equipment benefits and burdens?

Are you using the Equipment and Subcontractor comparison packages to send automated quote requests to your vendors?  Did you know that using packages allows you to instantly load the most up to date vendor pricing into your estimate right up to bid deadline?

Would you like to learn more about integrating Estimator with your accounting, takeoff, and project management software?

Want to learn how to use the Export to Excel function to analyze company performance from from one year to the next?

Has it been a few years since you had your original training, and since then there have been great enhancements and features added that you are not familiar with? 

Have you hired new employees who need to learn the system, but your lead estimators or managers are too busy to take on the burden of training new personnel?

This is where supplemental or advanced training comes in.  It is an opportunity to learn best practices and expand your mastery of the system so that you can get the most out of your software investment.

We offer a wide range of training options, including online half-day sessions; on-site training, and training in-person at our Northern California facility. We provide standard beginner's training or we can customize one or several advanced sessions to meet the unique needs of experienced users.
