THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Center Software, the first name in construction automation, announces today a new partnership with W.A. Browne's Icarus Steel division. This new partnership ties together the Icarus Steel components with On Center Software's Quick Bid®.
Quick Bid is the bid estimating solution that set the standard beginning in 1988. Quick Bid enables Quantity Surveyors to easily, accurately, and consistently increase project win rates and profit margins. Quick Bid improves ramp-up time, eliminates discrepancies, gains material quotes, identifies and analyzes risk factors, improves the bottom line, measures, analyzes and reports, and incorporates Icarus Steel materials into the QB database for immediate access by contractors.
Matt McAdams, Managing Director at W.A. Browne, states, "For our Partner Program, we thoughtfully select partner solutions that deliver the highest value to our customers. On Center Software complements Icarus' Intelligent Cold Rolled Solutions. Helping our customers win more projects and effectively managing bid tendering, material flow, budgets and schedules, delivering a win-win for contractors. We know that in today's fast paced construction environment everyone benefits when suppliers work together."
Icarus Steel, a division of W.A. Browne, was the first to introduce light steel frame (LSF) technology to the UK in 1981. LSF provides a fit for offsite engineered steel solutions across all sectors with uncompromising service, quality and technical support at realistic value for money prices. For this reason, the partnership between On Center Software and Icarus Steel delivers the right combination for success.
"We take pride in our ability to partner with a leading UK Light Steel Frame manufacturer, Icarus Steel. Working together we deliver the best combination of automation and materials," states Cecilia Padilla, President of On Center Software. "On Center Software and Icarus Steel are committed to quality that encompasses the integration of solutions and products, customer support, and training into a customer's full lifecycle experience. The success of our customers is the very business of On Center Software and its partners."
