Beck Technology Signs up First Value Added Reseller for the New DProfiler with RSMeans.

DALLAS -- Today, Beck Technology and U.S. COST have announced a partnership whereby U.S. COST will market, promote and resell DProfiler with RSMeans. U.S. COST recognizes the value of the complete project view including 3D models, sketches and cost analysis that DProfiler provides. Architects, owners and contractors can make decisions based on reliable, complete and accurate information.

"We are very impressed with the technology and our clients have responded enthusiastically to our initial presentations," says Steve Williams, Vice President of Software for U.S. COST. "Offering DProfiler allows us to provide a more complete BIM solution to our clients and will give early adopters a distinct advantage in the market place."

DProfiler with RSMeans is a "macro" Building Information Model (BIM) solution used in the planning and conceptual design phase to produce an accurate cost estimate of a proposed design. The 3D modeling component is full featured with the ability to add floors, cut sections in any shape, view the interior and accurately measure the model. Integration with RSMeans data, provides instant access to over 18,000 assembly cost databases, so that interactive cost estimating can be done on the fly while modeling the concept.

U.S. COST began in 1983 as an estimating and cost consulting company and continues to offer this service as well as value engineering, project controls, scheduling, job order contracting, and program management. U.S. COST also develops and markets the Success Solutions suite of estimating applications and represents RSMeans as the leader in cost databases. With an industry shortage of construction estimators, the services and software offered by U.S. COST are even more in demand today. Combining the 3D modeling and design capabilities of DProfiler with RSMeans gives U.S. COST a new and valuable offering for their customers.

"Beck Technology is pleased that U.S. COST will offer DProfiler to their customers," said Stewart Carroll, COO, Beck Technology. "U.S. COST is highly respected for accurate state of the art estimating services and we are glad to see DProfiler is central to their offering."

DProfiler with RSMeans is sold directly by Beck Technology and by value added resellers. VAR's are very important to the success of DProfiler with RSMeans. Services to increase the value of DProfiler with RSMeans may include custom add-on tools, custom cost modules and custom proforma and/or design criteria creation, enabling design standards and what-if scenarios for the planning phase as well as education, training and support.
