STACK Takeoff Software


 

STACK Takeoff is a cloud-based solution suited for commercial construction contractors looking to save time and increase accuracy in their bid process. It helps users with measuring lengths, counting items, calculating areas, slopes and volumes, and can export measured values to Excel with a single click.

Every STACK subscription comes with unlimited online training and support. Its support team can remotely login to a user's computer and see what they see in real-time, as well as provide answers to questions with personalized product demonstrations. 

STACK Takeoff features a user interface that can be customized for an organization's unique trade. Users can instantly share their plans with other team members, whether they're running on a Mac or PC. Estimators who need a more complete solution that goes beyond measured values can upgrade to STACK Estimating.

STACK Estimating subscriptions include all takeoff tools plus the ability to add materials, labor and equipment costs using items and assemblies from the STACK library or users' own customized versions.

Amazing, easy to use Take Off Software

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Value for Money

Overall for my small roofing business with only one estimator I found this software really affordable, easy to use, and a new huge asset to our company. Will recommend to my fellow contractors for their estimating and take off needs.

Pros

This software is easy to learn and use, especially for a beginner (like myself) with take off software. Great for our small roofing company that needs simple tools. Biggest bonus is this software can calculate cost in materials, labor and print off easy to read reports. Great software for the price since many other companies will charge much more and tend to be less user friendly. Great for specialty companies that have specific products they use because they will add any of your items to your special items list for you if it is not already in the program. This software is accessible where ever you go (compatible with google earth), so if you work from an office or work from the field you will always be able to get accurate numbers to your customers in a timely fashion.

Cons

It is a yearly subscription and also you have to pay per user per year

I probably would have liked it better with better training so I was comfortable with it.

Pros

The interface seems (on paper) easy to use once you get to grasp the options. I love the cloudbased option because my company has issues with servers losing connections onsite.

Cons

The learning curve seems very steep. Drawings took a long time to load, switching between drawings also takes a long time. The reporting needs to be enhanced or modified to allow more updating by the user.

The system is well organized and easy to work with. The calendar, the take-off lists, and the reporting functions are better than any other system that I have used. I rated features and functionality at 3 stars because I am having difficulty getting a linear take-off done. My cursor is not following the path that I try to take the drawing.

Pros

Integrated take-off and estimating functions

I would like a cost to price conversion feature and proposal writing feature in the software.

Stacks Take Off

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Stacks is a decent product but is kind of confusing unless you really take the time to watch the video on using the product. However, their support team is by far superb. They are quick to jump in and lend a hand and are extremely patient in helping out.

I do feel as though there should be free webinars (don't remember seeing any that are open to the public in general) for people to slowly become familiar with everything that this product offers. This is one that a lot of the general contractors links their prints too so that it loads for subcontractors automatically, but if you are not comfortable with the product, it doesn't do any good.

Pros

The layout and the features that are offered for your trade

Cons

Understanding the features and trying to pull together a quote from taking off

Advice to Others

Take advantage of the trial period when you do not have a bid that is due soon. Take your time, watch the videos and take advantage of the support team for extra help.

I have been using this product for over a year. It saves so much time and allows you to go back to previous jobs to review takeoffs.

Pros

Can upload all prints and related documents and can access them from anywhere.

Cons

The fact that after two accounts it jumps to ten to open any more accounts. We are a small company and it would not make sense to have 12 accounts as there is only 3 of us that do takeoffs.

I have been using Stack Takeoff for years. It is very easy to you, and is much better than printing plans and doing a manual takeoff. The money you save by not printing plans justifies the cost alone, not to mention your takeoff will be more accurate.

Easy learning curve due to software is easy to learn very user-friendly. The staff at Stack very professional and helpful in ensuring you get the support you need. The trainer was very helpful any question or concern I had he put at ease by demonstrating and training me in the ways Stack TakeOff could assist my needs. Secondly, in comparison to other construction takeoff products we looked at are more complicated and costly. I found after much research Stack by hands down is a better product the support and training are phenomenal.

I was on a journey to find a software that would work on my Mac without having to download Windows onto it. All takeoff software that I attempted to use advertised that they work on Mac, but when it came down to it, they all required bootcamp or some other system that basically ran the windows operating system. StackCT was the only tool that I found to work on all hardware; because it runs in the browser. It also is very straight forward to use; at least for me, it was.

Pros

Feature rich and runs in the browser, which means it can run on a Mac without having to put Windows on the Mac.

Cons

Since there are quite a few features, some of the features naturally beg for additional features. It would be great if the software would allow easier management of takeoff features that have been added, once they have been created. That is still a little clunky. I'm sure they will improve these since they're always adding improvements and new features.

Advice to Others

Give it a try. They give you a couple of weeks for free. You have nothing to lose.

Stack is a great product for doing takeoffs efficiently and at a great price. The features that come with it are great, and they are constantly adding new ones.
I love the fact that you get immediate attention from the developers whenever you have a question or comment. The only thing better than their product it the customer service!

Cons

It can be a little buggy when using different browsers. If I remember correctly , I was using Firefox and had problems, they told me to switch to Chrome, and when I started getting comfortable with Chrome I started having issues and they told me to switch to Firefox! I currently use Chrome, and there can occasionally be a little bug here or there (ex. trying to select one of my items to edit - hint: use the multiselect!).

I was able to be more competitive with my bids and not waste time having drawings printed off and having to manually do takeoff!

Pros

Being able to download a set of plans and start doing Takeoff in just minutes is nice and keeps me from spending extra time in the office.

Cons

The print process isn't the easiest after you have created your own layout or design. Other than that I have been satisfied and will continue using this program

Less measuring time than physical plans. The customer can submit a bid and estimate quicker.

Pros

The quick measuring and the scales are listed so you can chose which one you need. If you have any questions, the small icon is in the corner and the customer service reps answer your questions in less than 3 minutes.

Cons

If you miss measure, you have to go back and delete almost everything that you've worked on and start all over.

I will save money and time and I can provide better customer service now. I don't have to email to our reproprinter, wait for them to get printed, go pick them up, or get them delivered, then wait forever to my boss to get the takeoff to me, then send it to the customer, by the time I have the bid ready, we miss the bid date 85% of the time. We can provide much better turnaround time, especially when they are in a time crunch and need the takeoff done 911. I hate having to tell them, sorry I still don't have it, oh darn, I guess we missed our chance to bid your project, sorry!

Pros

I don't have to waste time going to get blueprints and doing takeoffs anymore. Once you figure out how to use it, it makes things much less complicated and more accurate than doing by hand using a take off tool.

Cons

just getting to know the ropes is challenging. At first I was on the phone constantly asking questions because I would forget stuff or confuse myself or make a mistake I couldn't figure out how to fix

Time saved, enhanced communication with clients, and visual PDF output to ensure accuracy.

Pros

It is so easy to use and makes visualizing our take offs 10000% easier. We can designate different colors for different materials and export to confirm install areas with our clients. Customer service is always very quick and attentive to any questions or issues and the updates have continued to vastly improve over the time we have used the software. This has changed how our business operates at every level!

Cons

In future updates, it would be nice to be able to paint over certain take off areas with patterns to demonstrate what will be installed (wood, tile, etc). This is in no way necessary, but would add tremendous value to how we communicate with our clients.

I am able to get extremely accurate square footage's off large complex building diagrams for specific rooms etc... very quickly and then I can use this in my proposal calculations to respond to my clients and prospects quickly which is very important in our industry.

Pros

I like the fact I can get square footages off large diagrams quickly and efficiently so I can perform proposals for clients and prospects.

Cons

I can't think of anything if I have a question I call and get immediate support. Once they talk with me it's generally me forgetting something easy and they remind me.

Easy to set up

Pros

It keeps everything in the cloud and does not take up memory, pulls up easily with wireless connection. I have told others about you product.

Cons

Could tell you where to find things easier with an index under the help tab. Do not like the steps it takes to edit takeoff

Pros

Customer Service is wonderful. Small details make a huge difference, Stack is always open to suggestions.

Cons

I wish it was a program on my computer not on the internet. Only because the internet connection can be slow.

Time savings, Plus saved money not having to purchase paper plans. Can zoom in real close on things.

Pros

The ability to zoom in and scaling, Finding area and volume, Uploading is very easy. Just a few clicks and the file is there!

Cons

It won't allow me ability to figure rebar at the price I pay so always back to the old fashion way of running takeoffs at least for the rebar part. Can't really justify spending more just for that.
Can't print the page you are working on.

Pros

The clean look and intuitive nature of the take off.
Collaboration potential is huge. Connecting teams of preconstruction/estimating in larger organizations. I think you have only begun to tap this.

Cons

I'd like if it could tie directly into estimating software.
I understand why everything has a time component, but I don't like that you have to search the calendar for the project I am working on. Most of our projects do not have a firm due date.
An actual enterprise solution with multi users would be good without trying to sell a "seat" cost would make it more of a viable option. You want to have individual users for tracking purposes, but if we have to pay for each individual, that would make us keep our current selection of Blue beam
Comment - I don't know if it can but revision control would be great for both document and take off.

Makes it easy and fast.

Cons

A little slow sometimes when creating take off description. I only use linear footage take offs so being able to make that a permanent selection in a settings area would make things fast for me.
