Life as a building materials estimator continues to get more demanding by the year. With the current industry operations, estimators are finding they need to estimate more projects in the same amount of time as before.
Luckily, there is takeoff and estimating software to help by greatly reducing the amount of time involved in estimating.
The #1 in the industry is PlanSwift because it can reduce the time involved with estimating to 1/10th of what it is by more traditional methods. This means estimators can complete ten estimates in the time it would have taken to complete just one.
All this is done without sacrificing accuracy. This is done by the use of assembly based items and by having the computer do error prone math.
By removing the slow time, consuming processes PlanSwift allows estimators to complete lists of material in minutes instead of hours. PlanSwift can easily produce reports and estimates that include material, tools and even labor with the push of a button.
Life as an estimator continues to be challenging but with the right tools will allow the smart ones to excel over everyone else.
