The story

Methvin has been a passion for me ever since I started pricing up construction work. Making a profit in construction is hard enough but when your pricing system lets you down, it can be a fatal blow. As an advocate and practitioner of “First Principle Estimating” my pricing is always strengthened by the ability to use flexibility when setting variables. I have found complex pricing on large jobs can sometimes be a challenge in many of the pricing software applications available. As the CEO of Methvin, I have passionately collaborated with a number of software engineers all over the world, to bring to the industry a user friendly, powerful online platform, that is both accurate and free (to most). Our goal is to be the world’s most widely used online estimating and collaboration platform for construction, engineering and infrastructure projects. Go on! Connect and collaborate.
