Quick Frame Systems is now shipping the 5.7 version of its Excel-based lumber estimating program for builders, lumber companies, and framing contractors. One new feature is an improved consolidation function, which lets builders display matching items in one line item for a single package. The software lets builders run broad-based estimates as a general contractor, though most builders use the system for framing-related items, such as roofing, drywall, and hardware. A single-user license costs $5,495. Visit www.quickframesystems.com for more information.
