Pricing Data Feedback

Pricing feedback is one of the ways in which Xactware ensures that the cost information we report is reflective of actual market prices. It is highly valuable to both Xactware and you as a user.

There are several ways in which you can participate.

  • Option 1: Submit estimate feedback.

    This process gathers information on the items, prices, and quantities used in completed estimates, and packages it for delivery to the Xactware pricing team. Most of our customers are aware that estimate feedback is automatically collected from assignments returned to XactAnalysis (i.e. program work), but many don’t realize that the estimates they write outside of those programs are not collected unless they regularly run the feedback utility within Xactimate, XactRemodel, and XactPRM. To run the feedback utility:

    For Xactimate:

    1. Click the Xactimate tab
    2. Select Tools
    3. Under Services, click Feedback
    4. Click Yes

    For XactRemodel:

    1. Click the XactRemodel tab 
    2. Select Tools
    3. Under Services, click Feedback
    4. Click Yes

    For XactPRM:

    1. Select the Feedback button from the left menu options
    2. Click Yes

    This utility will process and package information from all estimates which have not previously been collected via feedback or as completed assignments. The next time you connect to XactAnalysis, your feedback information will be sent to Xactware.

    It’s important to remember that the feedback utility will only collect information from estimates marked as “complete.” Therefore, be sure to always mark your non-program estimates as complete.

     

  • Option 2: Submit online feedback.

    Send feedback on individual item prices and labor rates any time day or night via the XactAnalysis SP website. You can visit www.xactanalysis.com to login and send your feedback.

     

  • Option 3: Send an email to Xactware:

    To expedite your request, please provide as much information as possible regarding each line item in question. Include your name and company information, the city in question, the line item in question, the price which you feel should be reviewed, and contact information for contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and so forth who can verify the price submitted.
