Welcome to Estimating Software Services Australian website


With 25 years of estimating, manufacturing and site experience we design, develop, test and market construction estimating software in Australia, Europe and the USA.

All software products developed by ESS are very easy to use with simple no fuss menus as normally seen in almost all construction software currently available today.

We also work closely with the specific contracting trades when developing our software so it works the way it is supposed to.

All pricing includes free remote access training and support.

Our software is a affordable and simple digital takeoff software solution with no recurring costs.

You can use any digital file for your quantity surveys including satellite images to calculate lengths, areas, counts and then simply export to Excel with just one click of the mouse button.
