What Our Customers Are Saying
I was very impressed with CostOS the first time I saw it and the more I have seen the more impressed I have become. It is a truly innovative cost estimating interface to BIM, which will integrate cost (the so called 5th dimension) to a project BIM. We are therefore delighted that the BCIS resource cost database will be available to work with CostOS. This initiative is part of our endeavour to make all our price and cost data available in BIM friendly format

Oracle evaluated the Estimating solutions available globally today and Nomitech CostOS came out way ahead of the competition in a number of key areas. The key differentiators of CostOS included deep integration with Oracle Primavera P6, 100% BIM enablement with graphical quantity take offs for both building and linear projects. The solution is being rapidly adopted by our Construction clients and they are already seeing huge value from this strategic partnership

At last, proper estimating softwareHad been reviewing many software packages but none gave us hat we needed until we found CostOS. The user definable columns gave us the ability to customize the exactly what we needed. In addition the ability to seemlessly interact with Primavera P6 was a bonus. The appearance and Excel type use made use easy. Post purchase service provided by Estimating Plus was exemplorary.

Best 5D BIM Estimating system.We have tried many BIM costing tools on the market and only CostOS was able to meet the demands of everyday estimating and costing, while also facilitating take-off from multiple BIM models. Pros: There are too many to go through. Main benefits including ability to cross-code a single rate to multiple methods of measurement; excel like bottom-up estimating where required; in-built spreadsheet; links to business Primavera; has an excellent 2D take-off tool for pdf and DWG quants production; well structured databases for resource rates; multiple columns to extend pricing options; and can be used to create cost assemblies which enable automatic take-off from BIM models, matched to database rates. Cons: With so many configuration options, you will need to spend a little time getting used to the many features so you can create a workflow that suits your needs.

CostOS in Cloud
Automatic CostOS Updates
The beauty of CostOS in cloud is that the servers are off-premise, out of sight and out of your hair. Nomitech take care of them for you and roll out regular software updates – so you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself
Work from anywhere
With CostOS in Cloud, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. And with most serious cloud services offering mobile apps, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand.
The result? Businesses can offer more flexible working perks to employees so they can enjoy the work-life balance that suits them – without productivity taking a hit. One study reported that 42% of workers would swap a portion of their pay for the ability to telecommute. On average they’d be willing to take a 6% pay cut.
Lost laptops are a billion dollar business problem. And potentially greater than the loss of an expensive piece of kit is the loss of the sensitive data inside it. Cloud computing gives you greater security when this happens. Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. And you can even remotely wipe data from lost laptops so it doesn’t get into the wrong hands.
