Appreciating that every profitable estimate starts with an accurate takeoff, many contractors are looking to technology to improve their accountability, accuracy, and efficiency. Digital takeoff software is a great choice for those contractors who want to eliminate the cost and hassle of paper blueprints, and perform takeoffs quickly and accurately right on their monitor.
Dynamic features of digital takeoff software give estimators the ability to overlay addendum drawings, flag changes, and eliminate the possibility of missing the changes and additional costs.
Why is that so critical? Because change orders can drastically affect a project’s profitability. Some contractors have seen their digital takeoff software pay for itself with a single won change order.
Beyond the takeoff and estimate, construction companies can streamline processes throughout the project life cycle. Doing so helps companies be organized and have important visibility across the business.
Having plans available in the estimating process and through final payments provides significant benefits to the bottom line, as well as allow construction business owners to run companies more efficiently and increase profits.
