PlanSwift is a great tool for estimating for residential construction that can reduce time and increase accuracy.
With takeoffs from prebuilt assemblies and the ability to use most plan file formats including PDF or the ability to scan plans into PlanSwift and then is helpful.
Assemblies allow you to set up everything you need for a specific type of work, from all the materials to tool and even labor, then use this assembly by adding it to an area.
The formulas within the assembly will do the calculations and provide you with the amount of material needed, the tools you need and the amount of labor used.
All estimated in as little as one-tenth the time it would take to do the same estimate by hand for a residential construction project.
The increased speed does not come at the cost of accuracy. Because the PlanSwift program does the calculations the same way every time you can be assured the estimate and takeoff are highly accurate.
