Xactware Awards Hawaii Trip to Fastest Estimator

 — March 19, 2002 — 

The celebration of Xactware's 15th anniversary this past year has been both exciting and rewarding for its customers. As part of the celebration, and in an effort to find the fastest Xactimate user in the world, Xactware conducted four competitions over the course of a year. Participants in this year-long competition were able to improve their estimating skills while winning valuable prizes, such as Kodak digital cameras, software and Xactware merchandise.

"Our Sketch Quick Draw Competitions these past twelve months have allowed us to demonstrate the effectiveness of Xactimate with Sketch as the most powerful and easy-to-use graphical estimation tool in the industry," says Jim Evans, Vice President of Operations at Xactware. "Thanks to all who celebrated with us by participating in our competitions. We have enjoyed rewarding our winning customers with great prizes as a token of our appreciation."

As a result of Xactware's final competition, Yolanda Negron from ServiceMaster at Coachella Valley was awarded an all-expense-paid trip for two to Hawaii. The trip includes round-trip airfare, seven days and six nights at the Sands of Kahana in Maui, and a convertible car rental. As winner of the Hawaiian vacation, Yolanda also receives bragging rights as the world's fastest Sketch estimator. Yolanda qualified for the final competition by placing second in the second of three qualifying rounds held last year. She whipped through the final competition Sketch-off in less than 20 minutes from start to finish, and states that it took her only around three minutes to actually sketch the final floor plan.
