After a two-year R&D period DQ Technologies introduced the DQ2000 Take-Off and Quoting System in March of 1994.
The underlying reason for the success of the DQ2000 Estimating System came from our unique understanding of “how estimators did take-offs”. The kind of understanding that comes from the years of real life operations experience garnered by the staff at DQ Technologies. Even though the number of employees has grown significantly over the years, we continue to add employees with “real business” experience to ensure we maintain an intuitive understanding of our client needs.
