TRA-SER for Electrical Contractors

Looking for accurate electrical parts pricing?

Our huge product and pricing database can be used by itself, or in conjunction with your electrical estimating software and it’s kept constantly up-to-date so when you bid, it’s done with the precision that gets you the job.

Obtaining bid pricing for electrical 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  The old way had you calling your supplier, or worse, just using outdated prices and applying complicated math so you could enter it into your electrical estimating software.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. Distributors love it: Over 3,000 branch locations are available for you to connect to (click here for a list).

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 20 systems (see list below) including all the major ones.  It also links with the NECA MLU so you can add labor units into your estimate too.
