Many contractors find the use of construction cost estimation software to be a major advantage to them, both in completing their work, and in enabling them to get more done. This is because using software for construction cost estimates saves time and leads to better bidding.
Construction contractors of all sizes and trades have found using construction estimating software reduce the time it takes to do takeoffs and estimates down to 10% of what it would take to do by hand. What had taken two hours can be completed in less than 15 minutes.
This frees up the contractor, for an extra hour and 45 minutes to pursue other work or finish working that much earlier.
It is this extra time, even if only half of it is used, that can completely transform a construction business. Builders can estimate 10 times as many jobs in the same time, greatly increasing the chance of staying busy.
“Our company, like every New Home Builder today, is looking for ways to increase productivity and decrease expenses. PlanSwift Pro has become the tool that will help us reach that goal. We believe that by using PlanSwift we will literally trim days off of the time it takes us to perform our construction estimates. PlanSwift’s templates allow us to standardize the work of our whole team, and improve our accuracy. All of our estimators immediately saw the advantage that PlanSwift brings…and they all wanted it immediately! Thanks also to the responsive support staff for even the simplest question.”-MCCar Homes / Paul Schleif
Another great use of this extra time many people use is to finish work earlier. An extra one to two hours a day on site instead of estimating can add up fast. Over the course of just one week, this equals ONE ENTIRE DAY EXTRA of work completed. It is not just about the work either. Everyone knows the money comes when the work is done, so by finishing early contractors can be paid earlier. Helping the bottom line.
“I absolutely love what PlanSwift has to offer. PlanSwift has saved me time and energy (about 1/10 of the time) and not only that, I am able to roll through the program with great ease. I have never seen anything like it.”-R & R Acquisition / Cam Mead
Construction cost estimation software has the added benefit of allowing contractors to easily put together accurate, timely, and impressive proposals with little effort. Once the layout has been set the first time, contractors need only select a few options and an amazing construction bid report is produced.
