Plug-Ins are powerful tools that allow an ACE user to seamlessly incorporate data from external 3rd party applications into an ACE session. With plug-ins analysts can choose the best tool available for estimating different elements of the overall estimate. Some standard plug-ins are available for the ACE software. These plug-ins enable integration with the following 3rd party applications:
- Excel Plug-In (Excel 2007, 2010, 2013)
- Project Plug-In (MS-Project 2007, 2010, 2013)
- Price Plug-In (Price-H/HL 12.1)
- SEER Plug-In (SEER-SEM 8.1 and SEER-H 7.2)
Additionally, the ACE-to-ACE Plug-In allows a user to incorporate results from multiple ACE estimates into one summary estimate.
