“Thanks to the SPARX Electrical Estimating Database, I am pricing projects with confidence and accuracy.

Brett Nash has taken great care in building a Database that is specific to my industry, and is robust, yet user friendly.

Pre-Builds populated with pricing provided by your supplier

Want your Pre-Builds to contain pricing from your supplier? No problem.

You have the option to have our algorithms automatically populate the SPARX Pre-Builds with parts from your wholesaler supplied pricing.

Hey Presto, your ‘Buy Price’ is now in the Nett Price field. Subsequently the Nett Prices will update when you next import your Price File.

In addition 'Real world' fit rates will be applied to your Supplier parts which match our +16,000 rated parts.
