TruEst Trimble Software Used for MCAA Student Chapter Competition

October 16, 2020

MCAA’s Student Chapters are well underway working on their projects for MCAA’s Annual Student Chapter Competition. For the first time, MCAA’s Career Development Committee partnered with Trimble, one of MCAA’s Manufacturer and Supplier Member Companies, offering students the use of Trimble’s new estimating software, TruEst, for the Student Chapter Competition. 

TruEst is an easy-to-use, web-based estimating software that combines document storage, graphical takeoff, Trade Service material pricing and MCAA labor into one solution. TruEst is straightforward and intuitive as it walks users through the process of creating an estimate step-by-step, making it the perfect tool for the students to use. 

While using TruEst is not a requirement for the project, Trimble has generously made TruEst available to all of MCAA’s student chapters for free. Currently, there are eleven student chapters taking advantage of this opportunity and utilizing TruEst as they work on their project. MCAA and Trimble are excited to be exposing the students to this software while they are still in school, as they will likely encounter it again upon graduating.
