Databases

Every contractor has unique preferences when estimating their projects. The right database is critical in filling those needs. Commercial contractors may self-perform some work, purchase some materials, and subcontracting the remaining work to others.  Residential contractors often subcontract all labor but purchase some materials. Renovation and Specialty contractors self-perform labor and purchase their materials.  Instead of a boilerplate, “one-size-fits-all” database, Advanced Assembly Databases are configured to fit precise needs.

AAD Databases are Custom Generated from an “a la carte” menu.
