CostXL - Excel Estimating Software

Combine Takeoff Data
with Microsoft
Excel Spreadsheets

CostXL is an additional product that allows users to live-link CostX® data directly into their Microsoft Excel® workbook. Simply drag and drop measured dimensions from any networked product in the CostX® range directly into the spreadsheet or set up a template so that dimensions automatically appear in your Excel® spreadsheet once measured in CostX®. This add-in makes it easier than ever for construction professionals to integrate their digital efforts with Microsoft Excel®.

Why Choose CostX®?

While many programs that can export data to Excel® exist, CostXL differs as the data in question is live-linked to CostX® itself. Data changed within CostX® is automatically reflected within the CostXL add-in, saving time and effort. To enable a quicker learning process, CostXL ships with sample CostX® data and Excel® spreadsheets.

  • Integrates into Microsoft Excel

    fiber_manual_record CostX® data such as dimensions, workbook values, rates and constants can be live-linked directly into Excel® spreadsheets.

    fiber_manual_record Updates are applied automatically – changes made in CostX® are immediately reflected in Excel® spreadsheets, saving time on data entry.

  • Connect Back to CostX

    fiber_manual_record Live-linked figures allow users to see the measured dimension in the Excel® source directly on the plan. This ensures you will always know what has been measured and where.

    fiber_manual_record Data from multiple revisions can be handled on the same Excel® worksheet, allowing you to easily keep track of your progress.

  • Supports a Range of Excel Features

    fiber_manual_record Generate cashflow forecasts, progress claims, management reports and more from the live CostX® database.
