When you click Nett-Only, the following dialog box is displayed.
This Reporting process gives you access to a Reporting method based on price per unit area of roof and per unit length of line category. (You set the base prices using Set-Up > Set Up Pay Rates > Nett-rates). The pricing method simply reports a fixed set of line items (roof and trim) and uses the geometric (nett) values as the quantity. So if you quote by price then simply model the roof and go to the Reporting option. You do not need to select the specific roof cover material or define flashings, battens etc as your pricing would typically include any variations.
As you can see, you have the same facilities as on the Reporting Supply-Install dialog box.
If you wish, you can select a line item, and insert your own description for each and every line item. These changes relate to this quotation only. Don’t forget to select the Save button when you’re finished preparing the quotation so that the same details can be recovered later.
Bill of Quantities
A useful feature of the Nett-Only quote is that you can also do a quote on the nett areas of the roof without having to draw it up. If you have been given all the quantities of the roof you can simply enter them into the Quantity field, and click Re-Calc, the material side of the job will then be costed for you. This is particularly useful when you have been given a Bill of Quantities from the local Quantity Surveyor with no roof measurement details. This is process seems prevalent in the UK market where many jobs are supplied as a Bill of Quantities only, for whole or part of the roof job.
Double click a line item and change any value in it.
If you need to do labour as well as materials, simply click on the Copy Quantities to Labour Items >> button and all the quantities that you have entered into the material fields will automatically be copied into the corresponding labour fields. You will still need to click on the Labour Subtotal button to ensure that the labour is calculated.
These functions may be used in conjunction with QuoteGroups to produce custom quotations often required when responding to requests for quotations from a Quantity Surveyor.
