Construction takeoff programs are a valuable tool to any building professional who is who is willing to spend the couple of minutes it takes to get to know the program. The value these programs have to offer is too great to let it pass people by.

As with any software program there is some material to be learned. Best practices and limitation that need to be understood to get the most out of a program.

This is why PlanSwift offers training along with the 14 day trial of its PlanSwift 9 Professional. You can either sit around reading articles and learn by trial and error, or let an expert show you how to get the estimating software to work best for you.

Construction Takeoff Programs

“PlanSwift is one of the most versatile and user friendly estimating programs we have used to date. PlanSwift not only works well as an estimating software, but as a tool to help sell more product.”-ProBuild / John Huck

It is this type of personalized training that can make the difference in whether these programs are just taking up space or are valuable tools. By personalizing the software training to your takeoff needs you will be shown how to get the program to do what you need it to do, not what another contractor or trade would need.

“I have used various estimating programs over the past years and I have found PlanSwift to be an extremely user friendly program. It was easy to get a new user up and running with minimal training down time. After I downloaded the program and with the excellent assistance of Matt Miller in tech support, I was doing takeoffs with plans the very first day. One exceptional feature it has afforded me that I have found invaluable is the ability to work on customer’s reproduced plans that are no longer to scale, which is something many of our sales force have come to rely on. Since that first day, the program and all its many facets have increased my efficiency and productivity in estimating and completing material takeoffs across the board. Add to this the economical cost factor of the program as compared to other programs which are much more expensive and require additional ‘hardware’ and much more training, it goes without saying this program pays for itself in short order. I would and do highly recommend this program to other estimators with large or small companies, you will be surprised and amazed at what it can do for your profitability and efficiency.”-Stock Building Supply / Bill Wise
