The installation takes just a half minute or so. When it is complete, you will see the two shortcuts below. Also, a page will open automatically which you should print right away since it has some basic information about getting started. You can also open the Help Manual (see icon below) and read about getting started estimating. To begin working, click the shortcut on the desktop labeled Estimiser Pro (on left). When the program opens, go to the Main Menu and print the Quick Start page. There is a link to it at the bottom of the Main Menu.
When the program opens for the first time, you must create two (2) of your own passwords. Be sure to write them down in a safe place. IMPORTANT MESSAGE to new users of Estimiser Pro : If you cannot type in the password field, you must switch user accounts in Windows. Guest users may not immediately have access to the program, so log back in with your owner or admin user account.
Then, enter the first or "master" password you created in the
login field and click the Login button.Then, you will see a page describing
how to close the program. When you understand that, click Contine and you
will see the Main Menu. Click the first button, Setup and
navigate to the first three sections: Shop and Labor Rates and
Tax Rates. These are the three main areas where you must enter specific
information before beginning estimating. Then, click the Help icon (shown
above) or, from the Scripts menu at the top of the program window, click the
Script Open HELP. Either will open the complete online manual. It is available
from any window in the program. Locate the sections about setting up tax
and labor rates. Read these to be sure your setup is set the way you
need it. Browse to the section labeled Quick Start. There you will
learn the basics of the program. Note that if you want to use the program
in "easy" mode for estimating only, you'll only need to work in
the Setup, Customers and Estimates sections that you click to from the Main
Menu. Also note that the Main Menu serves as a central hub. If you lose your
way in the program, clicking the button Main Menu will bring you back there.
Note: You may want to do most of your testing with the two sample estimates
(one is a supplement for the other). Every time you start either an estimate,
supplement or invoice, you advance the counter of free uses. Also note that
it does not help to delete documents; that does not "roll back"
the counter of free uses. When the program opens, the first page informs you
of how many free uses remain. If you exceed that number without first licensing
the program, it will stop displaying and printing correct totals. When you
license the program, all of your work is completely restored. There is no
need to do a reinstallation when licensing. Technical help is free. E-mail
us or phone. Toll Free 866 584 5556
