Our Work

1. Process

ProEst Cloud gives clients very innovative solutions to fulfill their needs. It means that the application is continuously developing. Daily meetings with clients enable us to figure out business requirements. This agile process is supported by tools like Pivotal Tracker, Test Collab and Gitlab CI.

2. Web App


The core of the system. This is an advanced spreadsheet adjusted to estimators’ needs. It calculates the costs of the project in real time. Users can use a big predefined database of construction elements and adjust their quantities, different types of costs or markups. The estimate module works on big data, so was challenging to preserve good performance.


Being one of the most sophisticated modules of ProEst, “Takeoff” provides users with the ability to upload PDF files that contain construction drawings. After uploading and processing, the drawings can be then annotated or highlighted. The user can measure lengths and areas by drawing shapes on top of the drawing, based on which the estimated cost of the project gets computed instantly. The module also consists of a tool, which enables users to automatically search for all the instances of an object based on a selected template.

Report Writer

This powerful tool enables managers to create their custom reports and professional proposals, which can be exported to different formats. Custom reports are generated very efficiently and preserve flexibility.


Using these features company owners can fully customize estimation and designing processes. Due to this flexible solution, ProEst Cloud can fit clients’ expectations. Workflows are visualized as interactive SVG graphics, so users can easily modify them.

3. Automated Tests

In order to deliver the highest possible level of software to the project, we have implemented test automation. ProEst is tested simultaneously on the 4 most popular browsers. This allowed the application to be more accurately detected, previously detected bugs and significantly reduced application testing time.
