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 simplified our pricing model to make it very easy to understand. We make it as easy as we can for you -- you can just set your payments up on your company credit card for easy automatic monthly processing as well, or pay the year up front and get the last 2 months for free! If you would prefer to purchase the software outright, we can discuss that price with you as well.
