Top Software for Electricians

New technologies are constantly being developed to make our lives easier, and this is no less true for electricians. Software applications can save electricians a lot of time and effort by providing easy to access, convenient tools that can help them make calculations; access needed information; enter invoicing and billing information; and a whole lot more.

Here are some of the top picks for electrician software that are currently available:

  • TurboBid

This is an estimating software that accommodates electrical work for residential, light commercial and industrial work, remodeling, and other construction projects. The great thing about this software is that it is flexible enough to allow for different types of work. So whether you are providing purely electrical work, or include other services such as plumbing and construction work, this is a great tool to generate estimates, integrating all the different services rendered in one convenient and user-friendly interface.

  • eToolsLite

eToolsLite is a handy mobile software that allows an electrician to check references for codes, converters, and other similar materials. An electrician can simply check his smartphone to verify that information he only vaguely remembers is correct, to make calculations, to convert values, and a whole lot of other tasks. Having it so handy is a big plus, especially if you are out in the field somewhere and need to check a specific provision of the NEC, or are unsure about a mathematical formula you barely remember.

  • Electrical Wiring Lite

This is a free app that can help you make calculations based on NEC provisions. One of the best things about it is that it is free!
