More efficient calculations, convenient automations and quick response to price fluctuations

Dethier is pushing digitalisation and innovation tremendously hard. The link with KPD was therefore quickly established. To get a better grip on our estimations, we have been using vNext – meanwhile Tendering – since 2021, and the estimation team reaps the benefits every day. Watch the testimonial (in Dutch) below or read the attached article.


KPD module: Tendering

Responding to price fluctuations

Bart Raats, chief calculator, explains: ‘The current construction market is challenging. Getting clear insights into all costs and getting on the ball quickly is crucial for construction projects. Even though it is not easy to calculate all costs in detail, we do so for every type of project. Prices of all kinds of raw materials fluctuate enormously, which means we have to move quickly for each project. Tendering, formerly vNext, makes this possible’.

The benefits were immediately tangible

Above all, an estimate must be efficient and accurate. Bart: ‘We always start from the bill of quantities, add prices and send an offer to the client based on these factors. To speed up the calculation process, we use KPD’s calculation module. From the start, we noticed many short-term benefits. The calculation team immediately loved Preconstruction. The module is very user-friendly, to-the-point and tailored to the calculation process. This allows us to complete each estimate much faster.

The specific knowledge helped us move forward

The specific knowledge helped us Our team, including myself, immediately felt: ‘They know what they are talking about’. As the consultants mapped our processes, they immediately played on possible solutions. That gave a sense of confidence. The consultants are very customer-oriented and provide the most optimal solution. We are therefore sure that every contractor gets a tailor-made package.
