1 Replies and 386 Views Xactimate Estimate Formulas  386  1 Started by  RobShaver I have an example estimate created by Xactimate and I'm trying to understand how construction material costs and labor costs are reflected in that estimate. The columns I'm trying to understand are QUANTITY, UNIT, TAX, O&P, RCV. Correct me if I get any of the following wrong. QUANTITY is the size of that piece in units such as Square Feet (SF), Linear Feet (LF) Each (EA).  UNIT is the cost per unit. My biggest question is, does this amount include material costs AND labor cost  ...

0 Replies and 1039 Views Xactimate 28 Online  1039  0 Started by  Catmandale I am considering changing to the online version of Xactimate 28.  Does anyone have comments on how well it works, any issues or concerns as it compares to a desktop install I would like to be able to use my laptop when traveling and my home setup when not on the road, but don't want to sacrifice too much utility. I regularly do estimate of 2,000 line items and more. Dale

0 Replies and 986 Views Comm. Rpr/Remdl Tax  986  0 Started by  Wagenmaster Can someone explain the difference between using the Comm Rpr/Remdl tax and the regular tax rate Why would I use one over the other This is a commercial policy and using the Comm Rpr/Remdl tax rate adds $4,309.32 over the regular tax rate of $8.25! I've checked the Tx DOI website for clarification, but can't seem to get a straight answer. I used the regular tax rate of 8.25 on my estimate and the roofer used the Comm Rpr/Remdl tax rate which also shows to be 8.25 and there is the $4,309.32...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I tried mobile version of Xactimate 28 on my tablet today. Between that and their mobile version of Xacanalysis and Xactcontents this is going to be the future of estimating. You would sketch in the field, may be even add line items in the field, come home write a report, mount photos, boom, you are done.  You will also have an online version of Xact. Which means that you can access it from any computer with a browser and internet. Sweet.  All versions will be synchronized through th...

5 Replies and 3197 Views Xactimate 28  3197  5 Started by  Ray Rossetti I was informed by an Xactimate support Technician that you can only open 28 if you have internet access available because of password authentication. This may cause huge issues after major storms when there is often little to no internet or cell phone/card access available in the storm areas. This means if there no internet available you will not be able to complete any estimates to upload later. They say once you open 28 you can work offline but you can not open it without internet access. ...

3 Replies and 2673 Views Xactimate 28  2673  3 Started by  dpadjuster I just upgraded to 28 about a week ago, and am finding a lot of bugs in it.  Has anyone else found this problem  I am wondering if it is my install that was defective, or if the whole program is like this.  I am especially having problems with the GLR and changing the deductible.
