Effortlessly bid projects of all types with Aspire's intuitive, integrated estimating functionality—from on-the-spot enhancement or tag-on job proposals and extended long-term construction projects or ancillary services to ongoing maintenance, snow removal, or cleaning contracts.
The Aspire platform allows you to create templates to combine commonly used services, pricing, and language for estimating specific types of work. You can also create kits, which combine your company’s production factors with labor and material or supply costs into a single item on the estimate—simply alter the takeoffs, and you’re done!
With no limit to the complexity of templates and production-rate kits you can build or the number of property takeoffs you can store, Aspire enables your estimators to quickly and accurately bid large and/or complex jobs by simply altering the takeoffs and quantities.
In Aspire, the margins and markups you’ve established for labor, materials/supplies, subcontractors, and other direct costs are automatically factored into your estimates to help ensure profitability. The system also accommodates custom, management-approved margins and markups by branch, division, or service type.
Even better, the Aspire platform allows designated users like purchasers, power users, or admins to easily update the average price of your catalog items as needed, based on your actual, historical spending habits.
With Aspire, your clients can easily view bids and provide approval with a digital signature—via email or right from within their customer portal. And for smaller jobs like enhancement proposals or tag-on services, account owners can easily capture signatures on the spot from their laptop or tablet.

Aspire provides standard default statuses while also allowing you to customize some. The statuses include: pre-bid, bidding, approval, delivery, signed, production, or lost. This makes it easy to monitor and track proposals as well as opportunity sales pipelines.
Aspire estimating templates track and manage all services as well as optional services on every maintenance contract. The templates also allow the ability to add new service tickets or extra visits inside existing service tickets. That is typically a workflow option the client determines.
Aspire provides full sales and estimate pipeline reporting with filters to isolate estimates by rep, by branch, by customer, by service type, or by desired date range.
Aspire requires you to create your own templates, services, contract language, and most importantly, pricing rates. This produces both standard and job pricing with gross margin, overhead recovery, and net margin reporting. Templates are completely flexible and will become essential to your standard estimating process.
In Aspire, you can customize your:
Pricing and profits
Invoicing and billing
Scope and contract language
Final proposal format and presentation
Aspire handles change orders in the estimating system by linking every addition, deletion, and substitution to the original job estimate. This makes it easy to track complicated job history and projects that evolve.
