Cleopatra Enterprise – Cost Estimating Software

To have the knowledge and skills to do proper cost estimating is one thing, but if you lack the tools to do the job, you’re going to have a hard time creating fast and accurate estimates of complex projects, let alone the possibility of inconsistencies or other errors.

Cleopatra Enterprise has an Excel-like user experience which allows you to quickly get acquainted with its possibilities and to start creating estimates straight away. 

 

Full project lifecycle

Cleopatra Enterprise not only enables you to create all kinds of cost estimates, from factor to detail, but it can also be your key to successful tendering as it allows you to estimate costs, request bids, analyze those bids and to keep track of its costs. Besides that, it also contains a module to control costs during the project execution phase. By linking your project controls document directly to your estimate, Cleopatra Enterprise will minimize data handling, increase efficiency and reduce the number of errors.

What it has to offer

Despite having a wide array of functionalities, the interface of Cleopatra remains clear and intuitive. It’s easy to navigate between the different tools and to find what you’re looking for.
The large set of functionalities results in some key advantages of Cleopatra compared to other cost estimating solutions:

 

Conceptual estimates

Conceptual estimates

Already in the very first phases of a project, you will need a rough estimate of the associated costs in order to make a well-informed go/no go decision. With the use of parametric cost models, Cleopatra Enterprise is capable of creating a relatively accurate estimate based on the characteristics of the project and its main equipment items. That way you’ll know the feasibility of a project as soon as possible.

Translate MTO / BoQ into an estimate

Translate MTO / BoQ into an estimate

After creating a detailed design, you’ll often find yourself with an extensive material take-off (MTO) or bill of quantities (BoQ) that lists all of the items within the project. Cleopatra Enterprise allows you to quickly turn that into a detailed estimate with the click of a button.

 

Resource based estimating

Resource based estimating

Cleopatra Enterprise offers full support of resource based estimating. Through this method, you are not looking at the average number of hours you use for a particular activity. Rather, you plan the resource you need by calendars and schedules. So all the time related items in your estimate are created using schedules. Updating one scheduled activity means a whole estimate is updated, saving valuable time. 

Location factors

Location factors

A project executed in the US will have a different price tag than when that same project is executed in China. Cleopatra accounts for the changes in productivity, labor rates and other location factors. That way we ensure that your project is estimated as accurately as possible, no matter where you are.

Central database

Cleopatra Enterprise is built on a database platform, which secures and stores the information about your projects in a central knowledgebase. That way, cost engineers always have the required information at their fingertips.

Extensive and highly configurable integration

Cleopatra Enterprise has integrations with some of the most used and well-known software in the industry. Easy data transfer with software like SAP, Oracle and Excel saves you a lot of time on manual data handling, while it also reduces the number of errors dramatically.

What-if analysis

"What if" analysis

Of course, there are certain options or scenarios when it comes to project execution. We realized you probably don't want to create separate estimates for each scenario. That's why we built the "What if" analysis tool, which enables you to calculate the impact of project execution alternatives to your project costs without changing the actual estimate. 

Bid evaluation and tender management
