10 Reasons to upgrade to Sage SQL Estimating 17.11

  1. No more corrupted or misplaced estimate files- all estimates are stored in the faster, more stable Microsoft SQL database.
  2. Virtual Licensing eliminates the need for physical USB devices and product activation codes.
  3. No more passwords with more robust, granular, Estimating Security Groups
  4. Shared report and screen layouts created by administrators can’t be accidentally overwritten, while still allowing each estimator to create personal layouts
  5. Alternates give estimators the ability to filter estimates, including or excluding Options with a mouse click, thus providing quick bid totals for different scenarios.
  6. Office365-style Ribbon Bar, & Shortcut Menu offer improved, modern, look and feel and simplified spreadsheet shortcut menu.

  8. Insert Column provides faster Screen Layout changes
  9. For Sage100 clients, the common MS-SQL platform enables improved performance &  integration between Sage 100 Contractor and Sage SQL Estimating.
