Option 1
 (Note:, the software must be run using Microsoft  Excel®)
The janitorial bidding software is fully functional by itself, as a stand alone product.
It is perhaps best used in conjunction with the resource guide #2 Cleaning Services Bid Estimation, in order to realize the full potential of its features.

The cleaning software CD contains electronic spreadsheets that mirror the Bid Estimating, Overhead Cost & Distribution, Work loading and Supplies & Equipment Costs worksheets in Cleaning Services Bid Estimation (resource guide #2).  This makes using the spreadsheets a “breeze” to use, after learning how to apply all of the fundamental calculations, bid estimating charts and tables, found in the resource guide.

Examples of how to use the janitorial software, along with cleaning times and janitorial production rate charts for general cleaning, are included on the CD for the benefit of customers that wish to purchase the software by itself.

The cleaning software’s most valuable features include:
* Straight-forward data entry layout
* Automated computation
* File editing, copying, updating and archival capabilities
* Correlation with all worksheets found in Cleaning Services Bid Estimation 
* Charts and tables for typical cleaning times and janitorial production rates
   (e.g., windows, bathrooms, kitchens, sweeping, vacuuming, hard floor care etc.)
* Fully editable janitorial proposal example
* Overhead & total cost spreadsheets and example
* Supply cost spreadsheets and example
* Workload determination spreadsheets and example
* Janitorial bid cost and profit summary spreadsheets and example
* All janitorial bidding software spreadsheets are customizable

The janitorial bidding software will more than “pay for itself,” in time savings achieved through its various features, such as automated computation (i.e., spreadsheet end points are displayed automatically, once all data inputs are correctly entered) and the editing, copying and updating capabilities (e.g., completed spreadsheets can be copied, renamed and saved, for the purpose of using them as templates, with all or part of the data common to bid estimation jobs included, so that the need for data entry and editing is reduced, going forward).

A Bonus feature that is included, is a fully editable Janitorial Bid Proposal example in Microsoft  Word,® that may be copied and edited by users and then saved as custom janitorial proposal templates, going forward.

A PC operating system (e.g., Microsoft Windows,® ‘95, NT, ‘98, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8) is required to run the CD.  The use of Cleaning Services Bid Estimation can greatly aid in reducing calculations for basic end points that are needed as input for various  spreadsheets.

 (Overhead Cost Spreadsheet)
Use this spreadsheet (or the single page “short form”, also on the CD), to calculate the overhead costs for your business.  The totals are then used as data entries in a second spreadsheet that automatically distributes the overhead across each cleaning account (or across all facilities in a single account), based on the relative direct costs for that account (i.e., a percentage of the total direct costs for all accounts).  From there, you can use the Cleaning Services Bid Summary spreadsheet  to determine a final bid estimate.
The shaded columns contain output data that is automatically calculated, and appears instantly, once the appropriate data entries have been made. Totals appear in the bottom row of last page of each spreadsheet.  A single page, short” version of this spreadsheet is also included.

 (Bid Summary Spreadsheet)
This spreadsheet provides a concise summary of all of the factors needed to determine a Cleaning Services bid estimate professionally! A “Customer’s copy” version of the spreadsheet is also included.  This version hides essential cost inputs such as labor costs,  direct materials costs, account overhead costs, etc., from view.  A hard-copy of the “customer copy” spreadsheet can be used as a billing statement, or as part of a janitorial bid proposal.
The shaded columns contain output data that is automatically calculated, and appears instantly, once the appropriate data entries have been made.  Any of these bid price output cells, may also be hidden selectively, for use in customer quote printouts as well.
