Can I add equipment
Service Estimator supports
equipment customization. Although the equipment data tables include hundreds of
equipment types and sizes, we are sure you will run across something that is not
in the list. Therefore, we made it convenient for you to add and define any type
of equipment you wish, including the ability to add material costs for
maintenance and repairs. Any custom equipment types that you create are stored
in your company data file so you can use them over and over again.
Can I use multiple labor
You can use an average labor rate for two categories. Labor Grade Level 1 (journeyman) & Labor Grade Level 2 (mechanic). The percentage of time spent on the job for each custom labor rate is set
in the equipment data tables.
