"Our section - Project Services - Electrical Engineering utilises and has utilised the pricing information services from Trade Services of Australia for over 20 years and has been using the electronic version of the Contractors Pricing Manual (TRASER ®) for the last 15 years. We find this service invaluable for the pricing of LV copper distribution cables and underground PVC conduits and to a lessor extent switchboard components and internal fixtures. The staff at Trade Service of Australia have always been very helpful in regards to technical support even when the problems are the fault of the end user ie. not downloading the installing the updates within specified time frame. I believe that there will an automatic update option added to TRASER ® in the next few months that will reduce the need for the manual updating process - we are looking forward to this additional feature.

Thanks to the team at Trade Service of Australia."

Estimating Solutions

Estimating Solutions is a Windows based program that has been written by a contracting estimator specifically for contractors who need to produce consistent tenders with the minimum amount of effort.

In the estimate screen there is a button marked TRASER ®. When that is clicked, TRASER ® will load and a button will appear on the TRASER ® screen marked ESOL.

Items can be highlighted and dragged to the ESOL button and are patched through to the estimate.The estimator then applies quantities and a labour install time in the estimate fields.

The Master database of materials and labour install rates can access TRASER ® and insert selected items. That way the estimator can only select the most common items from TRASER ® associated with his particular business.

When TRASER ® is updated, the Master database can be updated from TRASER ®.
