Win More Jobs With Less Effort

Make accurate estimates with the click of a mouse


Measure and assess your site with high resolution aerial imagery to estimate material costs and quote customers from your desk. Gain insights that help you make smart decisions and direct your resources to where they’re most profitable.


Intro


Accurate measurements of building footprints, fences, slopes and the like allow you to estimate material costs and quote your customer quickly without ever leaving your computer. The result is that your staff, vehicles and equipment can be directed to where the profitable job is, and not waste time and gas driving all over town, or worse, stuck in traffic.

Challenge


To be successful in the construction industry demands that you quickly and accurately quote jobs without accruing costs that can’t be recovered. You also must remember the customer’s experience to build a great reputation. First Base Solutions (FBS) offers a simple to use mapping tool called VuMAP that can help you realize both.

Solution


VuMAP allows you to log on from anywhere and view current and historical aerial imagery of the site in question while you’re on the phone with the customer. The customer is happy about the rapid response, and you can scrutinize details of the site conditions at a glance – slopes, water features, access routes and barriers, property boundaries, potential hazards and more - which helps you predict your costs and workload accurately to make your estimate.
