NEW EASYEST CAD ESTIMATING PACKAGE

 NEW EASYEST CAD ESTIMATING PACKAGE
 PRYOR, Okla., May 15 /PRNewswire - American Small Business


Computers (ASBC), publishers of DesignCAD, announces shipping of EasyEST, an estimating package utilizing the power of DesignCAD. Bruce Taylor, president, stated, "EasyEST will double the productivity of any DesignCAD user performing estimating and/or material take- offs."
 EasyEST reads and extracts information contained in DesignCAD drawing files. EasyEST automatically counts and inserts that information, called attributes, into a spreadsheet program -- included in the package. EasyEST can generate a bid in seconds. Taylor stated, "We feel confident DesignCAD users are going to love this program. They will be able to generate realistic cost estimates for projects quickly. People such as facilities managers will find EasyEST an incredibly useful tool for floor layout and space design."
 EasyEST bridges the gap between the DesignCAD and accounting programs, and other estimating programs. With EasyEST, you can take information directly into accounting programs and other estimating packages. "No longer is the CAD drawing file information isolated. It can be taken into hundreds of other programs for further manipulation," Taylor stated.
 EasyEST allows you to break down estimates-by-percentage-of- total-project or subtotal-costs-by-category. Adjust markup prices per individual item or for the entire project. Adjust total price of a bid and unit cost will automatically recalculate, or vice versa. EasyEST allows you to tag items for global operations, such as deleting, modifying the database, or adjusting prices for bid totals.
 Of course, you can add items to the bid that are not in DesignCAD drawings, such as labor hours. You can change prices for items in EasyEST without having to edit the DesignCAD drawing file. Databases can easily be created and modified at a later date.
 EasyEST allows you to customize screens to look like current estimating forms and then print these specially designed forms. EasyEST users can tag only those items they want to print, so prices before mark-up remain hidden. A special on-line manual provides information on every operation: you can activate commands from within the on-line manual. The manual provides the user a list of options from any point in the bid construction with explanations of each option. A practical on-screen calculator is also included.
 EasyEST is compatible with hundreds of printers, plotters, digitizers and mice. Requirements are an MS-DOS 3.0 or later system with 640k RAM and a hard disk with 3Mb free space. EasyEST retails for only $299 and is available through dealers worldwide and through American Small Business Computers Inc., One American Way, Pryor, OK 74361. The phone is 918-825-4844, fax 918-825-6359.
