MeasureSquare Software


 

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.

Overall a great product with great people developing the product.

Pros

Able to complete takeoffs in a precise, efficient manner.
The door tool alone makes this product a more efficient use of time.
The customer service/technical support is really second to none as well. When we have any questions about how to do something within the software, the response time has been great. Plus, we feel that our concerns are heard in that when we make a suggestion, an update comes out that includes the suggestion we made. We appreciate how the product is constantly evolving in an attempt to make our jobs as estimators easier.

Cons

Technically, for me, the product does not allow for me to pan left/right and up/down the way that I would like to.

I love measure square. It is the only flooring estimation software that does everything you would expect a takeoff software to do, and much more. Take a look at the screenshots, and you will quickly find there is none like it, except for Callidus, which is so outdated it makes me snore to look at screenshots.

Pros

- This product is the only complete flooring estimation software I have found, and I've tried them ALL.
- AutoCAD-like style of drawing and taking off.
- Instant estimation when you drop a product into a room.
- Fine tuning to get the exact layout you desire.
- Never had any problems with the scaling of PDF or CAD plans.
- The developers are constantly releasing updates.

Cons

- Estimation for rolled goods still needs a little bit of work. Support has told me they are working to fix the issue I had with it, so I am confident this con will change.
- Some updates remove/change functionality that you may have grown used to. But all you have to do is talk to support and they will get you taken care of.

If you look on the world map you will see that we are from New Zealand in the pacific in a small city (pop 40,000) called Whangarei and the staff at Measuresquare treat us like we are just around the corner. Over the past 10 years we have seen this program develop from very basic floor drawing to the sophisticated program it is now. As we use both Measuresquare floor drawing and Measuresquare CRM system and they both sync between each other we are now enjoying the benefits of a seamless floorcovering business that starts with a plan and finishes with a happy customer. Like Measuresquare we believe that the measure is so important we changed our name to MeasureUp. :) Sure you have to learn how to use the program, but every minute you put into it will become the cheapest investment you will ever make into a floorcovering business.

Pros

Being able to site measure with iphone/disto laser anytime/anywhere and either complete the quotation on site or back at office on PC with it automatically saving everything. All plans, measurements and cut sheets are in the same format making it easy for others to pick up and work on the plan finalizing cut sheets/ordering product/scheduling installations and providing contractors with detailed plans that always look the same providing consistency with instructions and plan layout. You cannot beat a 3D view as a picture paints a thousand words!

Pros

Switching estimating software for our organization was something I did not look forward to doing. But once I got to know the staff at Measure Square it was a breeze. They are more than willing to work with us on training and troubling shooting. The customer support we have received is by far the best experience I have had with any software.

Cons

The biggest problem we see with Measure Square is some simple actions require multiple steps. We are using the 2017 version and they are still "tweaking" the software to make improvements.

Pros

MeasureSquare is designed to be simple, what it can’t do is not worth doing. Perfect for all types of flooring business.

Cons

Should link to more standard fiancial software such as MYOB, and SAGE. That’s all I can think of. The M2 team listen to their customers

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.

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

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

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

I suggest to compare them based on ease of use, available features, simplicity of the structure, and customer support
