Construction Estimating Software
Construction Takeoff Software Solutions
When you're working in construction, office time means lost productivity, but without new business, your company will suffer the consequences. How do you balance the need to provide construction estimating for your customers against getting the job done in the field? One option that many construction companies are moving toward is construction estimating software. But, what is it, what problems does it address, and how can your company benefit from it? We thought you'd never ask.
What is construction estimating software?
PROtrade makes your Construction Takeoff faster and easier.
Not that long ago, construction estimating involved spending hours analyzing blueprints with an assortment of colored pencils and a list of every item that was needed for the project. If contractors wanted to save money on materials, they would have to invest even more time figuring cuts to determine the optimum cutting lengths to avoid waste. This extra time cut into their field work, costing them profitability and additional income.
Today, there's a better way to keep your estimating and project management time from getting out of hand. With construction estimating software, you can look at and develop digital plans. Construction estimating software allows you to set up your own assemblies, helping you estimate a project more quickly. However, not all estimating software is equal. Some provide better features while others don't quite meet the mark. PrebuiltML was designed to meet and exceed your expectations.
What Is Construction Takeoff Software?
When you perform a takeoff on a project, PrebuiltML does so much more than simply list your material count. Unlike other processes that make you enter your materials every time, PrebuiltML provides you with a list of over 50 million products. Need to digitize existing plans? Our Point-n-Click digitizer makes it simple, with easy adjustments available for leveling and scaling your pages. You can build your layout and create your estimate in a single software system. Also, we know there are only so many ways to build a basic stud wall, you can save your custom assemblies for future projects, making the estimating process go that much more quickly.
With our software, you can quickly perform on-screen takeoffs that are completely digital by simply importing the image file for the project. You can:
- Develop quotes based on the product database you create
- Select preferences to choose from multiple stocking lists
- Export your final bid file into PDF or Excel format
With this level of automation, you'll be able to win more masonry jobs while lowering your overhead — so you can spend more time in the field and less time in the office.
What are the benefits of using PrebuiltML for your operation?
Construction, like so many other industries, is undergoing digitization. By applying construction estimating techniques to digital computing power, you can realize extensive benefits for your business. Imagine simply pointing and clicking to complete your count or measurements for your takeoff, then exporting it to Excel or PDF. When developing plans in PrebuiltML, the software's Cut Logic will find the optimum cutting lengths, allowing you to avoid wasted material and improve your project profitability. Because the software helps improve automation in your estimating process, you can spend less time in the office and more time making money and getting the job done.
Our software solutions also provide you with accuracy. The material layout plan allows you to immediately see any discrepancies with the original blueprint. Do you have areas in the project that require specific framing instructions? If so, you can attach those details to your material layout. PrebuiltML's construction estimating software takes your business from initial takeoff all the way to on-site construction.
