Landscaping Software

Our landscaping software also works as pool software, a fence cost calculator or decking quote calculator. It does everything but dig.

When a tradie breaks a sweat on a landscaping, pool or decking job, it should be because he’s working hard in the sunshine. Not because you’re stuck indoors with a stack of papers. Our pool and landscaping software makes it quick and easy to scale and measure drawings so you spend less time taking off and more time getting stuck in.

RapidBid’s designed for hard working Aussies who waste far too much time on preparing bids and quotes for fencing, decking and swimming pool jobs. It’s been tested by amateurs and experts, and every time it saves the average landscaping tradie up to four hours per bid.

Where would you rather be? Indoors with a pencil or outside getting the real work done?

Swimming pools? Fences? Decking? Measure, calculate and quote with RapidBid

RapidBid is made for the pool diggers, the fence fitters, the decking layers and the landscape gardeners. It’s made for tradies who know how much their time’s worth and who know working with your hands should stop at the door to the office.

If you’re using old-fashioned takeoff methods for your bids, you already know you’re spending too long on measuring, scaling and colouring plans and drawings. In fact, a focus group says that engineering, construction and landscaping firms think that the estimating processes for your bids take 50% too long.

Our landscaping software makes that process 80% quicker.

Whether you’re using it as swimming pool software, a fence cost calculator or a decking quote calculator, RapidBid saves you time and earns you money.

By getting a computer to do the things a computer can do, you have more time to do the things you should be doing. Sure, a PC’s never going to pick up a shovel or hammer in a fence post, but it can count, it can measure, and it can analyse an image.

So if you let RapidBid help you to review plans and organise them, strip out all the background clutter and then measure, scale and calculate areas for your landscaping project, you’ll be back out on site in no time at all.

On site, or enjoying an early finish. Who are we to tell you how to spend all your new free time?

Our software doesn’t stop once the take offs are done.  After you have a list of quantities (it’ll count everything from fence panels to pool tiles), our landscaping and swimming pool software drops all your numbers into a spreadsheet, and asks you for the dollar values of your time and your materials.

You provide the pricing, and less than a second later RapidBid gives you an accurate estimate for your job. You’re going to beat the competition by getting your bid in first, and you know that means you’re best dressed.

Don’t waste half a day on bids and estimates. Spend an hour with RapidBid and you’ll have your quote submitted, leaving you with all the time you need to do what a tradie does best.

So, our landscaping software (or swimming pool software, decking cost calculator, fencing bid estimator or however you’re going to use it) is going to save you time. But you’re probably wondering if there’s a catch.

Is clicking that link going to tie you into a ten year contract? Is using RapidBid going to make you bankrupt? Is this software just too complicated for tradies to use?

No, no and no.

Here’s what’s going to happen. You click the link, and you put RapidBid to work on a genuine bid. You submit the bid and you sign up for one of our packages. Or you don’t. The choice is yours.

RapidBid’s also one of the most affordable estimate and bid calculators on the market. You’ll spend less on RapidBid every week than you spend on your lunchtime meat pies. Check our prices and see for yourself. We’re talking a couple of dollars a day.

Best of all, our software’s designed for tradies. You don’t need to be a computer expert to use it, just like we didn’t have to be a landscaping expert to design it.

RapidBid is simple to use, and you’ll get the hang of it within a few minutes. You can look at a few video guides, and you’ll soon know just what to do.

But if you ever need a hand, you can give us a call. We’ll talk you through everything, screen-to-screen, so you know exactly what to do to scale a pool, measure a fence, or calculate how much decking you’ll need for a job.

Simple, affordable, and with no strings attached. Sounds like a deal to us.

It also sounds like a deal to the experts we got to test our tool for us.

Built for professionals, tested by experts

We didn’t just wake up one morning and decide to invent a new kind of landscaping and swimming pool software. We started making computer tools for tradies back in the 80s, and we’ve had people from all over the world tell us about the problems they have with bids and estimates.

Every comment we’ve had, every bit of feedback, has gone into improving RapidBid, making it easier to use and more powerful. But we didn’t stop at asking builders and landscapers and plumbers and electricians.

We decided to ask a professor at a Los Angeles university to test our software out for us.

The professor had seen what we’d seen and heard what we’d heard. If you’re running a landscaping firm, you’ve got more to worry about than hiring reliable tradies or putting your back out digging a swimming pool.

You’ve got more to worry about than clients not paying on time or suppliers putting their prices up.

In fact, he said what we thought he’d say. That three times out of four, you’re spending upwards of five hours putting together a bid and you’re not even winning the job at the end of it all. You’re worried that you waste far too much time.

So how does RapidBid work when it comes to this “wasted” time?

  • 92% of tradies in the professor’s focus group cut down the time spent on takeoffs and estimating from five hours to one.
  • Tradies used RapidBid to bid for four times as many jobs, win four times as much business and bring in four times as much money.
  • RapidBid users were getting their bids in before competitors most of the time.

To us, that looks like our landscaping software is going to help you make a real success of your business. So whether you need help quoting for a swimming pool, a fencing quote or a decking estimate, make sure you request your landscaping software demo right now.
