Computers Unlimited are delighted to announce that
Design Software Solutions Limited and Benchmark Estimating Ltd have
partnered to provide integration between Vectorworks Landmark, the
market leading design package for landscape design, and Benchmark
Estimating Software, used globally by leading landscape firms to
create accurate and professional estimates.
For a design and landscaping firm, the scalability of the business
is all about the number of projects that can be completed
simultaneously. But it
s not just about volume-it
s also about making sure projects are manageable and profitable,
particularly in today
says Adrian Slatter, Sales Director at Design Software
"One issue facing these firms is the need to re-enter all the
information from the design software it has used into the
estimating software it also uses - this takes time, costs money and
can introduce errors," Adrian continues.
Now with the combined effort of Design Software Solutions working
with Benchmark Estimating Software, this situation can be a thing
of the past. With the newly created Vectorworks plug-in, a
landscaping user can easily select elements of the design to be
passed to Benchmark, attach/amend any necessary information,
effectively creating a Bill of Quantities, which can be saved and
taken directly into Benchmark. Once there, a whole raft of
facilities exists to enable the user to create a highly
professional, accurate, consistently priced AND profitable
quotation - exactly what is required.
"We have been working with Benchmark for some time now" says
Adrian, "and the integration is key to providing an even better
solution to existing and new Vectorworks users alike."
The new solution will be on display at the BALI Show on Tuesday
19th and Wednesday 20th June, where Design Software Solutions will
be on the Vectorworks Stand both days and delivering a seminar on
the subject on the Wednesday.
"We have been working with Adrian and Tamsin Slatter and the team
at Design Software Solutions since last year," says Benchmark
Director, Rob MacDonald, "and
this new integration is a result of the great relationship we have
and our combined commitment to streamlining workflows for our
clients and helping them to win more business, more profitably. We
already have a number of joint clients and we expect that number to
increase as a result of this announcement".
