I started using this program after recommend by a customer and its great for estimating jobs

Pros

The mapping technology in eTakeoff Bridge is exactly what my team needed to handle our estimating workflow. The system automatically update any changes other users make which is nice when two people are on the same project

Cons

I have not found anything negative to say about the software to this point. My team has only used it a few months but so far so good

eTakeOff Makes Doing Estimates a Breeze

eTakeoff is an incredibly powerful and versatile piece of software. I am an estimator for The Mercury Group a full service electrical, security and tele data contractor Connecticut. eTakeoff has made us more efficient with my time, more effective with my efforts, and more competitive with my bids.We starting using the software in January 2016 and have since noticed a dramatic increase in both productivity and my profitability / conversion rate. In only four months we doubled our previous bid-output and decreased our margins of error below 2%. We didnt add a new estimator. We didnt start working sixteen hour days. We started using eTakeoff and embraced an era of change. eTakeoff helped us hone in on pin-point precision for my bottom line so we can win jobs. Period. We have all been faced with the choice of quality or quantity. This software doesnt force you to choose it enables you to take a set of plans and turn it into your trade-specific dollars and cents in a fraction of the time it would normally take. eTakeoff puts the tools you need right at your fingertips accessible with just a click of a mouse button. eTakeoff is vastly superior to other programs. The key to winning bids in this economy is competitive pricing that is both accurate and aggressive. eTakeoff affords you all the customization of your own personal in-house software without the trappings of a clunky interface and poorly implemented back-of-house functionality. Setting up the Quantity Worksheet, the Excel Spreadsheet integration, and your bread n butter traces can take a little time but it is worth it; the more you learn about the program the easier it will be to put together your estimates. If youre a novice-user I recommend watching the online videos and taking the web tutorials right on the eTakeoff website or opting for the Customer Support subscription. The most phenomenal aspect of my experience with the eTakeoff has been my interaction with the team. Their website, forums, and phone-support are friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. They know that we rely on their software to bring home the bacon and I always feel like a valued customer. I have participated in many a discussion both via phone call and the forums regarding changes to the software, new features, and implementation. The eTakeoff team keeps an open dialogue and encourages feedback so they can keep the software updated to the ever-changing needs of their clients.

Pros

Very easy to use, great training at no charge and unlimited. Can be integrated with our Sage 100 Contractor CRM and Sage Estimator.

eTakeoff Advantage

The key to winning bids in this economy is competitive pricing that is both accurate and aggressive. eTakeoff affords you all the customization of your own personal "in-house" software without the trappings of a clunky interface and poorly implemented back-of-house functionality. The most phenomenal aspect of my experience with the eTakeoff has been my interaction with the team. Their website, forums, and phone-support are friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. They know that we rely on their software to bring home the bacon and I always feel like a valued customer.

Pros

eTakeoff is an incredibly powerful and versatile piece of software. I am an estimator for Barrett Roofing, a Union roofing contractor in the tri-state area and eTakeoff has made me more efficient with my time, more effective with my efforts, and more competitive with my bids. I starting using the software in August of 2012 and have since noticed a dramatic increase in both my productivity AND my profitability / conversion rate. In only four months we DOUBLED our previous bid-output and decreased our margins of error below 2%. We didn't add a new estimator. We didn't start working sixteen hour days. We started using eTakeoff and embraced an era of change. eTakeoff puts the tools you need right at your fingertips -- accessible with just a click of a mouse button. I have extensively used AutoBid SM / Mech / Plb, QuickPen, Estimation, On-Screen, and a few "in-house" bidding programs but eTakeoff is VASTLY SUPERIOR.

Cons

very few -- if any. The software isn't always "intuitive" at first but they quickly make up for that with functionality, versatility, and support. I recommend taking the tutorials and watching the online videos.

Etakeoff Digital measure table

This is a good program for what it does , it has a set of template traces , wich you can use to get measures from existing PDF drawing sets , maybe to fit your company standard you will need to go thru a hard self taught about to to do custom formulas ,

Pros

you can use the template traces to do standard measures and continue the math on paper or you can go deep in formulas and do what you want , with the drawing scale tools this will be like a digital measurement table.

Cons

the part of the formulas is a little complex , so if you are planning to further rely on etakeoff to get all your measurement set maybe that will require that you consider some time for understanding how that works and to get your team trained.

Flexible, powerful, accurate and great integration to Excell and Sage Estimating

Accurate takeoff quantities with a visual audit trail.

Pros

The power of doing accurate takeoff with a number of alternatives to do everything. The graphic nature to be able to see visually what you have taken off and the ability to dynamically tie each takeoff to line items in your estimate through their bridge product

Cons

There really is no much I do not like about this product. But I would have to say I wish it allowed better sorting capabilities in the measurement list and gave us more power there.
