Takeoff is vital for creating accurate estimates and bids — after all, it’s the step where you measure, count, and list quantities of materials based on a set of drawings. Using traditional tools, like paper printouts of plans, special rulers and a calculator is fiddly, time-consuming, and risky. Measuring from hard copies of plans increases the chances of making errors since lots of manual calculations are required. At the same time, the high cost of most standalone digital takeoff solutions are often prohibitive for all but the largest subcontractors.
Now, easy-to-use digital takeoff is included in your bid management platform.You asked for it. We built it.
