The price book module integrates with the Q-Script database thus enabling data to be passed between cost planning, pre-contract, post-contract and price book. Rates produced and stored in the price book are available for future pricing work, whichever module is being used for pricing.
Without the price book module, Q-Script provides facilities for direct entry of estimated or contract rates as well as functions for automatically searching the project database for rates for similar items, applying statistical weightings and uplifts, calculating new rates and applying them to items in the current job. In addition, rates may be exported to and from a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
The optional price book module provides facilities for maintenance of an Office Price Book which is always available as a source for pricing jobs.
When using Q-Script to search the database for rates, the search is usually for similar items, i.e. for items in the database which have the same library code as the current item albeit with different variables and, optionally, different specification. The price book module allows items to be stored under a “short name” thus allowing the user to group similar items which may be in different Work Sections of the SMM. Thus, for example, Trowelled Concrete, Granolithic, Asphalt, Ceramic Tiling etc. could all be grouped in the Office Price Book under the short name of Floor Finishes.
The rates in the Office Price Book may be selectively updated by transferring rates from projects.
