We have several exciting updates to share, many of which were a direct result of feedback from our customers. Take a moment to review what's new & improved.
Cost Margin Pricing
To ensure you're always maintaining the correct margins on the products you offer, we've created product margin options within your Estimating Settings.
This added functionality will give you the control you need to maintain profitability on all your projects.

More Customization Options within Templates
We've added some small but powerful updates to the templates you already use. Take a moment to explore these newest additions to your available templates.
Turf Roll Tables: Allow your field crew or warehouse team an easy view of the exact cuts need for a project
Product List Toggle: Ability to show some but not all prices & parts in the product lists. This added feature ensures you can capture information about an upsell or other info you don't want the client to see but still have the option to show basic info that is useful to the customer.
Clickable Links Within Proposals: Phone numbers and web links can now be clicked from within a proposal to give your customer a better experience when viewing your provided proposal.
Detailed View on Products: You can now toggle to display the collected information in the diagram to drive how the “project details” are exposed to your client.
Project Information on Diagram: You can now include project-specific information at the top of your diagram. This added level of detail provides your team with an easy "at-a-glance" view of important project information like customer name, address ad more.
Better photo upload management
Exciting news! If adding photos from the field is part of your drawing process, your export time just got faster. Previously, the images you added to your canvas were stored locally on your device which could slow down your export to a proposal.
Now, photos added to your canvas are immediately uploaded to the cloud in the background as you continue drawings. This gives users the freedom to add more photos and more detail to their drawings when it's time to export their final product.
Additional Data Question Groups
You can now separate your Data Questions/Fields into separate groups. This gives you the freedom to make a group of questions required, but also have a separate group for documents that are not required.
Previously all additional data fields for any output would automatically be required.
Now, you can have a data field group that is mandatory and a group that is optional. Using groups can also help shorten the list of data points shown all at once by giving your team the ability to drill down into each group as needed.
New Product Libraries
As we see more construction and residential services professionals using and finding value in ArcSite, we'll continue to add more industry-specific product shape libraries. Here are just some of the most recent updates.
- Fence Construction (two options)
- Pest Control
- Commercial/Industrial Flooring
- Safe Basement product library
If you have a need for a specific shape library that pertains to your business, we'd love to know more and why it would help you win more jobs and save time.
