EES Data: One of the UK’s best take-off and estimating software systems

EES Data is known as the gold standard when it comes to accuracy and reliability, and we’re proud to be one of the UK’s original developers of estimating software for contractors.

The level of control and functionality in our software is the result of decades of working closely with our users, innovating based on what they need from us to be confident with their pricing. EES Data is a stable, consistent way to get a clear overview of your costs, easing the pressure of upcoming deadlines.

We are also proud to have built long-lasting relationships with the manufacturers that help us deliver our weekly price updates. Our comprehensive database includes hundreds of thousands of products available at the touch of a button, each complete with up-to-date trade prices and accurate labour times.

The result? You’ll find it easier than ever to produce estimates that you can rely on. Combining a simple-to-use interface with powerful tools and access to highly detailed information, you’ll be confident that you have full control over the costs of your projects.

What makes EES Data unique

Established in 1983, EES Data was one of the first companies to bring estimating software to the mass market. Since then, we’ve built a reputation as one of the very best.

Our small team based in Leicester now has decades of experience supporting our loyal users, but our team is still growing and so is our customer base! In fact, we’re growing more now than ever before, because people really value the high standard of accuracy that only EES Data can deliver.

Our software and our knowledge are based on real contractors’ experience, both in the office and on-site. We really value user feedback, and combined with our in-house team’s extensive knowledge, we keep working to make our platform better and better.

Is EES Data the right software option for me?

Answers to some of the most popular questions
Q. Who is the software designed for?
Q. My #1 priority is to make sure my estimates are as accurate as possible. Is EES right for me?
Q. How do you make sure prices are accurate?
Q. How are labour times calculated in the software?
Q. How easy is it to find what I need in the database?
Q. How do you keep everything up-to-date?
Q. Who is the software designed for?

A. EES Data was created for UK-based contracting firms (of any size) who work on residential, commercial or industrial projects. The database and the software itself are intended for plumbing, mechanical and electrical contractors. If you’re an MEP contractor then it’s also ideal, as you’ll find everything you need in one database.

Q. My #1 priority is to make sure my estimates are as accurate as possible. Is EES right for me?

A. Absolutely! We understand that this is almost always the number one priority for EES users, so every aspect of our software is geared towards this. Probably the most important factor is our detailed database, which we’re very proud of.

Q. How do you make sure prices are accurate?

A. Every week we check for new price updates from all the manufacturers in our database. When we get notified of changes, they are released in the next available EES price update. We also run tolerance checks to flag any significant changes, which enables us to pick up potential errors and check with the manufacturers before we send the new prices out to our users.

Q. How are labour times calculated in the software?

A. Every single item in our EES database has an installation time associated with it. These have all been provided and checked by experienced engineers with years of industry-specific experience. You do not need to provide these yourself, it’s all automatic (but you can override them if you want to, of course).

Q. How easy is it to find what I need in the database?

A. To make building your estimate as quick and easy as possible, our database is organised very carefully. We’ve spent years heading and grouping every item into sensible categories, so you’ll find everything in a logical place with just a few clicks. This makes it much easier if you’re searching through 10,000 items and you don’t know the item’s code off the top of your head.

Q. How do you keep everything up-to-date?

A. We have a small team that manages support for EES Data and keeps everything running like clockwork. We keep working quietly and efficiently in the background, and we’ll notify you of any important changes. For example, when we send out weekly price updates directly to your software, you’ll receive a bulletin so you can quickly review what’s changed.
