Smart Build Insight relies on EcoSys or a third-party estimation and project control system for bringing the cost estimate or budget into Smart Build Insight.
The estimate or budget can be imported using API Integration into Smart Build Insight for linking the cost item to schedule and model items. The estimate or budget in the third-party system should be in accordance with the API Contracts published by Smart Build Insight. The cost items within the cost estimate or budget need to have Classification Codes assigned at the individual level as per mapping requirements.

The example below shows how the Cost Structure is imported into Smart Build Insight:
