“I just finished my online session with Patrick. I purchased this program right away. PlanSwift will save so much time in estimates. It is much easier to understand and use than the other program I was using, at 1/3 of the cost. No More dongle. I can use PlanSwift on any computer.”-Enterprise Tile and Stone / Mike Babbel
Even using an excel spreadsheet only helps the numbers along slightly. There is still too great a chance errors will happen, in either the measuring, or the transferring to numbers to the spreadsheet.
However, with PlanSwift everything is done for you. Once a page is scaled, or auto-scaled if you want, all measurements are automatically and added to the proper formulas. There is never a need to worry about the numbers being transposed wrong.
“I have 35 years experience in the construction industry including architectural services and general building construction. After viewing many on-screen takeoff programs available, I have chosen PlanSwift. I found the program to be “truly” user-friendly in ease of operation, and very adaptable for most all estimating and takeoff. I have found it to work well with the electronic plan rooms that are available. I am most amazed by the staff supporting the program. With my first issue it took only “one” phone call and about 50 minutes, the problem was resolved and available for download with “two” follow-up phone calls from the staff only minutes later. As a professional construction estimator operating some of the most complicated programs, I believe PlanSwift to be the best of value in its class and truly worth recommending to anyone who requires the ability to perform an on-screen take-off.”-Toler Insulating / Wes Hurt
It is this amount of timesavings and accuracy increase that has caused so many contractors to get an advantage by using PlanSwift.
