Save money and your team’s time

In addition to increasing your takeoff productivity, moving from paper to digital takeoff methods eliminates the hassle and cost of producing paper copies of plans during the bid phase. As a single copy of plans can cost hundreds of dollars to reproduce, you can quickly realize substantial cost savings when producing numerous bids. And digital plans allow for easy sharing and reviewing of all takeoff projects online rather than waiting for paper to circulate among your team.

Bid with confidence

Dramatically increase both your estimating capability and your confidence in the numbers you provide. With eTakeoff, you can:

Improve productivity and speed

  • Become up to 15 times more productive than when using paper or manual takeoff methods.
  • Have more time to analyze estimates and take on additional bids without increasing staffing.

Improve accuracy

  • Measure to within a thousandth of an inch to take any guesstimates out of your bids.
  • Easily highlight what you’ve already taken off to avoid potential mistakes and unforeseen project costs due to omissions.

Improve communication between architects, contractors, and customers

  • Provide takeoff history to automatically back up what was (and was not) included in the scope of your estimate to limit the potential for, or quickly resolve, disputes down the line.
  • Easily compare new and previous drawings provided by architects to quickly see any changes that may or may not have been noted, preventing future issues that can impact a project or team relationships.

Choose the version of eTakeoff best suited to your business, or mix and match dependent on the needs of each estimator on your team. eTakeoff Advanced includes an array of built-in features so you can get started quickly with very little training. eTakeoff Premier is designed for power users to customize nearly every function and integrate those into your current estimating process.
