I have had the same doubt...
How much you can save will depend on each project.
BIM helps identify interferences, find project mistakes, view the work in different steps, find inconsistency of information, and gives us greater speed and assertiveness to feed into other stages of the project, such as budgets and timelines.
BIM can also contribute to the Management of the Work. Here in Brazil there is a software (ERP) called Sienge. It is geared towards management in the Construction Industry and has functionality that integrates BIM tools into the ERP Budget module. It is possible to link the unit compositions of the ERP database, with constructive elements of the model in BIM. This brings greater assertiveness to the budget.
The software also exports the model quantities and automatically generates budget worksheets within the software. The work of quantitative survey and budgeting, which before could take weeks, can be done in minutes.
It could do a lot, but it first need to be set-up correctly. Otherwise it become garbage for quantity.
Effort need to be made at the start
