About Us

CMSS/Services provides a broad range of systems-based administrative support services specifically oriented to the construction community in central Florida. Our package of services and deliverables - custom-tailored and scaled to the requirements of each individual client - can include any combination, scope, and level-of-complexity of materials selection, specifications development, estimating, purchasing, planning, scheduling and related administrative support. In addition to cost-effectiveness, our support processes can be specifically keyed to energy efficiency, healthy living and/or ‘green’ materials criteria.

We use Timberline, Primavera, QuickBooks Pro Contractor, Microsoft Office, Office Perfect and other industry-standard software to ensure consistency, and provide ease of start-up and data exchange with the estimating, planning, scheduling, spreadsheet, word processing and accounting systems, procedures and personnel that many clients already have in place.

In addition to Timberline Precision Estimating Plus, our Timberline suite includes Digitizer Integrator (connected to GTCO Super L II Plus Size E digitizers), Primavera Integrator, and Buyout (Request For Quotation, Purchase Order and Change Order tracking) modules.
