With so many moving parts to your estimates such as, materials, labor, installation, fees, overhead, markup, and margins, MB Software Solutions (MBSS) offers intuitive, consistent, customizable, and future proof programs to coordinate those moving parts in a single system.

FabNet and FabMate remove the risk of mathematical mistakes, price discrepancies, and everything else that can "fall through the cracks" of manual estimates. This effectively creates a profitable company which can produce consistent estimates time after time and protect your knowledge investment. If your estimator is no longer with your company, you at least have his consistent blueprints for estimates saved in your system, no longer risking your company's intellectual investment. That's great for business continuity planning! We've created 3 different pricing models to help you get into whichever version fits you best.

Pricing for FabMate and FabNet

FabMate is the classic version, put into production in 2003 and still running rock solid today. FabNet is the completely new design. It follows the basic flow of classic FabMate, but without any limitations and is much more flexible.
