Air Performance Mechanical estimator takes prize

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Eddy Rothenberger of Air Performance Mechanical in Dallas is the first winner of QuickPen International's AutoBid Implementation Challenge.

The contest has new users participating in QuickPen's AutoBid Training to install the system and then send a copy of a finished bid to QuickPen within 30 days. Rothenberger sent in his completed estimate two weeks after he finished class.

"I got started on it as soon as I got back," said Rothenberger, an HVAC estimator who has been with Air Performance Mechanical for 11 years. "I was able to spend about four hours a day on implementation the first two or three days. I customized it to fit the way I have to use it, and that was pretty easy."
