“PlanSwift has increased our accuracy & speed, especially the joist and overlay features. PlanSwift gives us more functionality than programs that COST 3 TIMES as much. Tech support is fantastic, I’ve never been on hold and the chat is instant. PlanSwift is willing to listen and we have recommended several of our clients to them because of their service and product.”-Dominion Truss / Kevin Rowe

By doing estimates this way contractors, can save themselves time and ensure greater accuracy. With the need to complete the calculations removed, contractors can then focus on other activities.

As an added benefit PlanSwift uses assembly based estimating. This allows the users to pre-assemble items that contain material, tools and labor then instantly add then to area on plans.

“I like how I can overlay siding details with Planswift, whereas before this could sometimes be a difficult task. I am able to measure my window, doors, floors, roofs, etc. I am able to line things up more easily than I had before. The overlay tool has been awesome with its pinpoint accuracy. This software hits all the right spots.”-Pacific Lifestyle Homes / Jon Pudlitzke
