Exactal offers free trial of CostXL

Following the successful launch of CostXL, Exactal is now pleased to offer a free trial to all of its clients with maintenance running CostX® Network or CostX® Takeoff Network editions.

CostXL allows users to have full access to all of their CostX® data from directly inside Microsoft Excel®. Connected directly to the CostX® database, but licensed separately, CostXL is tightly integrated with Microsoft® Excel® and allows users to drag and drop measurements, workbook values, rates, constants or values from CostX® directly into Excel worksheets. Data can even be live linked and then updated when changes occur in CostX®.

CostXL’s live links also allow users to see the actual measurements that the quantity represents. Users can simply right click on an Excel® cell containing a CostXL formula and an option will appear on the Excel® context menu to show dimensions. When selected, a new window is opened and the user is taken directly to the drawings that contain the measurements which are then highlighted. Using this feature CostXL users can investigate which dimensions represent the quantities being used in the Excel® sheet.

Users running CostX® Network or CostX® Takeoff network editions are welcome to request a trial licence from [Link No Longer Available]. After supplying your CostX® or CostX® Takeoff serial number you will be e-mailed your CostXL licence and details on where you can download the software. Only one trial will be issued per network licence.

Any users who do not currently have maintenance should contact their reseller to update their maintenance so they can take advantage of this offer. Users wishing to take up this offer need to do so prior to the end of March 2009.
