GCEstimator is a single solution for all your cost planning needs. It is an estimating solution that integrated cost analysis for both model and non-model based projects. With a single knowledgebase that captures your company’s estimating methods, your work will be delivered faster and with absolute confidence.

GCEstimator Suite's core is Trimble WinEst, and Trimble Vico Office. Combination of these solutions into one tool gave an opportunity for Trimble to create a unique set of integrated solutions. GCEstimator is designed to increase efficiency and reduce the complexity of deploying multiple vendor solutions with limited integration. GCEstimator provides functionality to access Vico and WinEst in one integrated platform. You are able to move from take-off to estimate in the same system, without having to log into a separate system.
