Eliminating common hurdles to estimating, Electricsmarts.com recently introduced NetPricer, a service that allows contractors using estimating software from participating vendors to connect to their favorite distributors and quickly download negotiated prices.

The new service makes it possible for contractors to skip the unnecessary steps of faxing a list of materials needed for a job to a distributor and waiting for a list of prices. Instead, the system will automatically retrieve material prices from pre-determined distributors via the Internet. By cutting out the human element in the equation, the service is available 24 hr a day, allowing estimators to gain access to prices when it’s convenient for them.
