Addressing Pain Points with Cubicost

Perunding Kos Bersatu (PKB) discovered that Cubicost Solutions provided an effective solution to various challenges within their organisation. Firstly, the software streamlined their operations, saving valuable time compared to traditional methods, including the time-consuming formatting tasks typically done in Microsoft Excel. Cubicost's user-friendly interface outperformed its competitors, enhancing the overall user experience.

Secondly, the E-tender process within Cubicost was a game-changer for PKB. It not only automated the tedious task of checking arithmetical errors in tender submissions but also significantly reduced the time needed for this process. These combined benefits allowed PKB to work more efficiently and effectively in their construction projects.

Key Feature Highlights

Cubicost's user-friendly approach made BQ preparation faster and more straightforward, maintaining consistent formatting. PKB highlighted the following features as most valuable:

TBQ Logo 2-1 E-tender Process: Streamlines the tendering process, reduces errors, and saves valuable time by automating arithmetical error checks in tender submissions while ensuring confidentiality.

TBQ Logo 2-1 Build-up Rates with Rate Codes: Simplify cost estimation by associating specific items with rate codes.

PKB: This played a crucial role in achieving success. This feature allowed for efficient pricing revisions and ensured that adjustments automatically applied to specific items.

While considering their options, PKB had previously used B***l**k and Excel. However, Cubicost Solutions emerged as their preferred choice due to its flexibility, ease of use, and superior performance in addressing their specific needs. The more complicated user interface and lagging performance of other solutions, such as B***l**k, led them to opt for Cubicost. In the case of Excel, the formatting issue was a concern as the scale might vary when using different devices.
