Coming up with accurate foundation construction cost in the shortest time possible is the goal of using takeoff and estimating software like PlanSwift.
It is not enough to come up with accurate cost estimates if it takes so long other tasks have to be drop. This is no good because estimating should not be damaging the other problems. Accuracy is important but if you cannot do anything else because it is taking too much time you are a lost cause.
So estimating needs to take as little time as possible so you are free to do other activities that make you money.
“After discovering that online take off software existed, I quickly discovered a couple a companies that rose to the top of my interest. One company had what seemed like an outstanding program, lots of bells and whistles, an incredible product, but did not offer any one on one tutorials to really show the possibilities of the product as well as the “how to do that” insight. It had lots of time consuming videos which were somewhat helpful, but still left me with a lot of frustration and unanswered questions. For a product that was listing for around 00, I would “feel” better about spending that kind of money if someone really took the time to show me how that investment would benefit my particular trade/business. That’s exactly what PlanSwift did. The day after I downloaded their free trial, they had someone call me to schedule a one on one tutorial. The tutorial was amazing. It went for almost an hour, and I had most of my questions answered. I got to see different ways that this program could be useful to my takeoff procedure, things I would not have thought of on my own. The tutor was very patient, bright, and knowledgeable about the software. The fact that it costs about a third of the other company’s product helped my decision to purchase PlanSwift, but I have to tell you that the TUTORIAL is what won me over. Excellent customer support and a better price. What more can I say? It’s a great product, with a great foundation that can be built upon to grow and become better and better for years to come”-Logic Electric / Kyong Chang
However, accuracy is still very important. Estimates that are not accurate can cost you big buck. Either is the way of lost jobs or costs you have to eat. Neither way being good.
It is this contradiction, the need to be both fast and accurate, that has caused so many contractors to convert to PlanSwift software. These contractors have found through the 14-day free trial offer that by using high quality estimating software they can reduce the time it take to do estimates and maintain, if not increase, the accuracy of their work.
