Coming up with the cost in construction projects is a time draining, mentally numbing exercise that must be done repeatedly. Without this basic information, building companies are unable to compete, but doing them drains a large amount of time and resources.

To make it even worse the task of completing estimates and takeoffs often falls on the shoulders of the owner. Having the right cost estimates as absolutely imperative, so many owners do not feel comfortable delegating this task. This just adds one more task to an already busy person.

In the end, something has to give. It could be family and friends, or time off, or finding new leads, or lowering the quality of the current work. Every time something falls apart, and creates problems.

“Working with the PlanSwift Software, along with the PlanSwift team has been a positive experience from the beginning. The program is easy to use, with a minimal learning curve, allowing our team to be productive right from the start. It’s allowed us to set up a standardized takeoff procedure which has greatly reduced our costs and improved our overall efficiency. PlanSwift is completely customizable, giving us the ability to cater to our customer’s specific needs. The program is well worth exploring.”-84 Lumber / Steve Gorman

This is why reducing the amount of time it takes to do estimates is important. When the time is cut in half it clears the owner to focus on his other tasks. Just a couple of extra hours a week can make a big difference in the owners’ life.

“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
