PlanSwift has built in the ability to send plans, screenshots and files by a unique and efficient system. From inside the program a user need only select the email plan button to start the process. Then they are given the option to send plan pages, a screenshot from inside PlanSwift or other files.
“With more and more plans coming in via email and the internet, we saw the need for electronic takeoff software. We reviewed several packages with the intent to select the best package based on features, user friendliness, and value. PlanSwift won easily, beating out more expensive products, some with big names in the industry. My advice.. take a trial run as we did, and you will buy this product.”-Herbert Construction / Michael Hatfield
