How can RIB CanBuild help your business?

  1. Candy Estimating integrates with BuildSmart Procurement for precise quantity and rate information to achieve accurate purchasing – the first step in effective cost control.
  2. BuildSmart captures actual costs relative to the estimated figures, improving the accuracy of future estimates and securing more profitable work.
  3. Analytical dashboards and reporting capabilities give you a complete contract on a page with KPI’s and risk indicators at a glance.
  4. RIB CanBuild provides one source of the truth, enabling you to manage the complete construction process & lifecycle.
  5. RIB CanBuild organizes cost information simultaneously by task/activity and by cost type. This allows one-to-one comparison of cost information across estimating, project management and accounting – even if it is organised in different ways.
  6. As a cloud-based construction management software, BuildSmart lets your team enter information where it is produced. This allows for real-time comparison of actual to allowable costs, giving you time to take swift, effective corrective action.
