Exactal Releases CostX® 6.8

Exactal is pleased to announce that the latest version of CostX® is available for download as of today. CostX® 6.8 integrates a variety of helpful new features and capabilities that will allow users to estimate with even greater efficiency and accuracy.

Some of the headline features of CostX® 6.8 include the introduction of Variables for use in Dimension Group expressions. Variables allow users to calculate quantities based on dynamically assigned values, with default values able to be established for a more efficient workflow. A new Width field has been introduced to support advanced takeoff in formulas for various quantity calculations. Code Libraries in CostX® 6.8 have also been enhanced, with unlimited levels of grouping hierarchy able to be allocated. Users can now generate a workbook with more than two levels of grouping based on a single code.

The CostX® 6.8 release notes can be downloaded here. To learn more about the improvements available in CostX® 6.8, we have released a promotional video that summarises the main changes, as well as a CostX® Coffee Break webinar that covers the latest release in-depth.
