Bjorn Viedge, Commercial Manager
“I have yet to come across a package that allows each resource on a project; right from nuts & bolts, through to large capital plant, labour and P&G; to be tracked and managed from tender through procurement and right up until we get paid for the supply & installation... RIB CCS give all uses the ability to get real-time information on true costs enabling a direct comparison between these costs and the allowable or budget, and to be able to do this on an individual resource-by-resource basis across the entire organization”
Gregory Crook, Managing Quantity Surveyor
“The advantages speak for themselves or I wouldn’t be using Candy for over 15 years... Without a doubt Candy saves valuable time at tender stage and post tender it saves time when producing meaningful Cost Reports… Candy fulfils much more than an estimation role with monthly valuation, meaningful and reliable cost reports and real time cost control now a reality through Candy…RIB CCS support is second to none form site visits to phone and email support”
David Baker, Estimating Manager
“The fundamentals of Candy haven’t changed much; they got it right from the start. I have yet to see or hear of a solution that rivals Candy in application, content or usability”
