MeasureSquare is a Web-based estimating and takeoff system for commercial and residential flooring contractors, designers, retailers and installers. Built with ease of use in mind, it offers visual takeoff and a drag-and-drop approach for assigning product and service items.
MeasureSquare’s best-of-breed takeoff and estimating modules integrate with digitizers, CAD files and Excel, and support drawing management, onscreen and 2D takeoff and proposal creation.
Users can calculate product quantities, seam layout, waste ratio and cut sheet. It's also possible to duplicate rooms and copy floor and wall designs to create batches of rooms. Then, estimating data is exported to an Excel file to be plugged into bid templates or other software.
Project scheduling and customer management capabilities are also available, as well as a downloadable measure app for iOS mobile devices.

Ive been using this commercial version software for around 5 years and its changed the way our business operates. More business more profit and most important more time
Could do with a more modern facelift looks a bit windows 98 occasional system freeze that can be frustrating but all in all great
There is a very limited choice but this also matters not as this is the best

I have been in the flooring industry for many years and have used all the software programs on the market, my choice is Measure Square because of its efficiency and ease of use and has been for several years now. Their customer service is excellent, they are always available and give you the attention needed.
At this point I really cant say anything that I dont like. There was a problem at times it would crash but I havent had any issues with that in a couple years
I would recommend this software to both commercial and residential contractors. For commercial use the program allows for pricing of materials, labor and sundries as well as layouts/diagrams and cut sheets for installers, practically eliminating installation shortages. Your proposal is generated directly from you take off. Speeding up your proposal process ten fold.
For residential use it practically cuts the whole onsite measure and quote to customer time in half. You can give them your quote right there in their house after the measure. Great all around estimating software program

- user friendly, even for someone who barely knows flooring estimating, doesn't have to be a computer savvy too
- each estimating process is easy to understand
- worksheet is pretty simple and not confusing compared to other estimating software
- there are different options on how you can estimate a particular product so ones you get the hang of it, you can choose to use what best works for you
- so many time saving features that help you produce more estimates
I have a wishlist instead; first being able to show and estimate protruding walls or niches on walls without using takeoff tool, being able to estimate uneven height of walls from wall properties, and show the actual images of carpet as well instead of just tiles - useful for large jobs like hotels and hospitals
I suggest to compare them based on ease of use, available features, simplicity of the structure, and customer support
