Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • Very Easy to Use. It is the first take off tool that I ever used and have had no problem.

  • We like most that it is pretty user-friendly and easy to train on. The Customer Support has been amazing every time we've called.

  • Cons

  • Not very many cons at all, possibly just leaning to use it takes a bit of time.

  • Creating overlays can be difficult, it would be great to have more color options and an easier way to scale and align two plans.

  • Pros

  • I love this software. It is easy to use. Gives great measurements. Allows fairly accurate job costing. And it has a ton of functions that are very useful for so many aspects of construction.

  • Planswift makes quantity take off much easier and more effective. The ability to create files and folders helps to keep your information sorted and organized.

  • Cons

  • The inability to separate values on the estimating tab can be discouraging - this small inconvenience is easily corrected when transported to excel

  • New features could come out faster, not cloud-based, needs to be able to sync with tablets. Import DPI could be higher.
