GLASTONBURY, Conn. — ElectricSmarts Network announced that Best Bid Electrical Estimating Software has successfully integrated Esmarts’ NetPak into their estimating software. This new capability gives their contractor users access to IDEA’s Industry Data Warehouse (IDW), including manufacturer product data and 3rd column market prices.
Best Bid customers now also have the ability to utilize the new suite of tools from Esmarts’ NetPak. NetPak subscribers have access to the entire electrical industry with searchable eCatalogs, certified product data, 3rd column market pricing, industry calculators and conversion tables, and distributor pricing (through NetPricer) from their PCs, laptops and mobile devices.
“People are liking the new integration with NetPak”, said Steve Griffin, CEO of Best Bid’s product design division. “With all of the other pricing services in the marketplace we only connect to NetPak. The newest product in the Best Bid line is the Best Bid Hybrid, which comes with our product recognition software for onscreen take-offs. And now being integrated with NetPak, supported by ElectricSmarts and IDEA, it makes this product even more desirable.”
