Standardizing and Improving Best Practices

eTaskMaker enables you to standardize estimating norms (manhours) and best practices in planning (task definition, work procedures) across the enterprise. Capture and retain your company’s expertise and experience in a secure platform. eTaskMaker estimating modules are encrypted with your serial number, so only your eTaskMaker licenses can read and use them - ensuring that contractor’s and owner’s proprietary norms stay safe in a mixed work environment.
