Partnership Makes Construction Estimating Software Available to Federal Agencies

Herndon, VA (July 14, 2000)- Timberline Software Corp. (Nasdaq: TMBS) of Beaverton, OR, a market leader in construction estimating and accounting software, announced today that its Precision Collection® of construction estimation software is now available to Federal agencies through a recent contract award with DLT Solutions, Inc., a Premier GSA Schedule Reseller and Federal Systems Integrator. Timberline's Precision Collection is an integrated suite of applications for construction estimating that helps estimators deliver accurate bids faster. 

"We're pleased to work with Timberline as they support the government market and complement our AutoCAD® offering," said Craig Abod, vice president of DLT Solutions. "Partnering with Timberline to offer our government customers software that simplifies the whole estimating process is a valuable resource for estimators. DLT is always dedicated to delivering value-added solutions and services along with simplified ordering." 

Timberline's Precision Collection streamlines the entire estimating process, from conceptual estimate to final bill of materials, to assist estimators in formulating accurate bids faster. By combining an easy-to-use spreadsheet with comprehensive takeoff, analysis and reporting tools, Precision has given many estimators the ability to cut their estimating time by 50% or more. 

From the spreadsheet, estimators have direct access to material and labor costs using Precision's databases and interfaces to pricing services, and are able to integrate with Timberline's Gold Collection® construction accounting software, as well as popular scheduling programs, to further improve efficiency. Nearly 10,000 companies worldwide have selected Precision as their estimating solution of choice. 

"We're well aware that obtaining products not on the GSA schedule can be a lengthy and arduous process for government agencies. Through our partnership with DLT Solutions, we're very pleased to offer these customers an easier, streamlined way to purchase Timberline software," commented Curtis Peltz, Timberline president and CEO.
