About the Estimator

Estimator is a pre-move survey application that runs on iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones and tablets. Estimator allows the surveyor to quickly create the list of articles to pack and move and to check the accumulated volume by room or by shipment. Packing materials are estimated automatically based on your company's standards. Click to view sample survey summary.

When the survey is complete, a summary report is generated automatically, ready to be printed and/or shared with the office and client.

The survey process is very simple and intuitive. Moving from room to room (or area to area), the surveyor can quickly capture each article's name and shipment (or mark the article 'not going'); if necessary, adjust predefined weight and volume, add notes; specify crate size; take photos; and appraise insurance value. The Estimator is integrated with PacGlobal, which allows transferees to enter surveyed items valuations directly in PacGloba's Octopus Portal and receive certificate of insurance in a matter of minutes.

New articles can be easily added to the standard master list during survey.

Estimator helps salespeople have more face time with the client. Survey results can be easily and comprehensively reviewed and explained. The client/transferee will feel comfortable seeing all the details and requests captured.
