“I’m gonna run out and grab a quick bite—don’t touch anything!”  Is that enough to safeguard a 100 million dollar estimate that you’ve been working on for 3 months? Probably not.

When it comes to preserving your final estimate, can you be sure that putting it in a Bid folder is a guarantee?  And if your standard practice is to export a backup copy of the final Sage estimate, are you sure that you’ll be able to find it when you inevitably need to recover it?

Do these concerns keep you up at night? Sleep better with Eos Navigator and our new project and estimate locking system.

Bring order to the madness of managing your preconstruction estimates using Eos Navigator’s locking feature.
