RIB CostX 7.1 is Now Available

RIB Software is pleased to announce that the latest version of RIB CostX® is now available for download.

Version 7.1 of RIB CostX has a host of important new features and functionality for clients, including native support for Microsoft SharePoint as a cloud storage provider. Clients already had the ability to store their drawing files using cloud storage services such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and more to help enable more efficient collaborative working, and now with Microsoft SharePoint added to the list, this creates even more flexibility for users.

There are also various new security improvements. Data security is important for businesses today more than ever before. To keep RIB CostX safe for all users, RIB Software constantly evaluates how to further enhance the security of your data. As such, several new security features have been introduced in 7.1.

There are also several other key additions to the new release. CostX 7.1 adds support for RVT 2023 files, includes two new utilities for bulk project exports and imports, and contains numerous smaller usability improvements including the ability to organise reports into folders, and much more. The full RIB CostX® 7.1 release notes can be downloaded here.

In addition to the new functionality in this release, RIB CostX users still benefit from the existing world-leading functionality, with 5D BIM compatibility, leading 2D takeoff, live-linked spreadsheets, customisable reports and innovative embodied carbon accounting – all in one integrated system. RIB CostX is a four-time winner of Estimation & Valuation Software of the Year at the Construction Computing Awards.
