PLANSWIFT STREAMLINES ESTIMATING WITH POINT-OF-SALE INTEGRATION
Software Allows Direct Exportation of Construction Takeoff Material Lists
Evergreen, CO., December 23, 2008 -- Tech Unlimited, Inc., the company that developed PlanSwift, the easy-to-use construction takeoff and estimating software program, announced their newest software capability today which allows integration into point-of-sales (POS) systems.
For building material suppliers throughout the nation, the ability for PlanSwift software to communicate with POS systems provides an array of time-saving functionalities. Suppliers are able to work with digital prints, apply materials, and then export that material list directly into their own POS system.
"It was important for us to place a great deal of importance on POS integration as soon as possible for the simple fact that it streamlines the takeoff process even further," says Matt Miller, Director of National Sales, "and exporting the takeoff quantities, with materials applied saves time and reduces mistakes."
PlanSwift has worked over the past year to reduce the number of steps needed to complete material takeoffs. While companies are looking to save money and increase efficiency, PlanSwift offers solutions by bridging the gap between the material takeoffs and shipping process through POS integration.
"Each time someone keypunches data into their POS system, the capacity for mistakes exist. If we can eliminate one more step, the potential for mistakes is greatly reduced," says Miller.
When companies decide to work with digital prints, the next logical step is to be able to price quantities automatically without keypunching.
"Speed, efficiency, and accuracy are all starting to come together," says Miller.
