TRA-SER for Canada

Win more jobs with our electrical parts pricing database designed specifically for Canadian contractors. 

Used by itself, or together with your electrical estimating software, you can vastly increase the accuracy of your bids.

Locating electrical bid pricing for Canadian-specific materials is so much easier than it used to be!  The old way had you calling your supplier, or worse, just using outdated prices and applying complicated math so you could enter it into your electrical estimating software.  Using TRA-SER relieves the burden and provides the accurate prices you need to land more jobs.

Imagine submitting a huge list of electrical materials to your supplier and getting pricing back in seconds, not days.  The tool is Supplier Xchange and it's available for free within TRA-SER.  Contractors rely on it:  nearly 20 million items are priced through Supplier Xchange each year. 

Once you’ve got the pricing you need, TRA-SER makes it easy to plug right into your electrical estimating software because it’s compatible with over 20 systems including all the major ones. (see list below)
