Install Compatible Applications

Trimble Viewpoint offers many compatible applications that can help boost your productivity. Some of these options require specific installation or set up steps to get started.

Hardboard and Roll-Up Digitizers

Hardboard and Roll-Up Digitizers from GTCO that make it easy to enter information into Viewpoint Estimating from a drawing or a blueprint.

Touch Screen Monitors

When you combine a Touch Screen Monitor with Viewpoint Estimating, you can use the interactive pen to perform takeoff of digital plans directly on the monitor. This allows you to work with more speed, efficiency, and precision. Enjoy the benefits of an all-digital workflow while simulating a pen-on-paper experience.

Industry Catalogs

You can add Industry Catalogs to customize Viewpoint Estimating to suit your business. Catalogs are available for a variety of industries, including:

  • Concrete
  • Doors and Windows
  • Framing
  • General Contracting
  • Masonry
  • Metal
  • Residential
  • Sitework

RS Means Catalogs

RS Means supplies construction cost information. To use an RS Means Catalog with Estimating, you must purchase the catalog directly from RS Means.

You can import RS Means catalogs into the application. Their data has become the pricing standard for government work and is widely used throughout the construction industry. RS Means catalogs help you more precisely estimate your project costs.

Advanced Image Manager

You can download and use Viewpoint Advanced Image Manager (AIM) for free as part of your Viewpoint support agreement.

AIM is a valuable tool for modifying and organizing many types of drawings, reports, and image files for import into Estimating and other applications. You can use AIM to remove unneeded pages, rotate images, and select layers to import. You can then save the file as a PDF or export it for digital takeoff. To attach scanned invoices, you can drag and drop pages directly from AIM into a vendor invoice record in Estimating.
