eTakeoff
When quoting projects are required where there is not much time and more precision is required. In these circumstances eTakeoff is spectacular. And it allows to integrate with BIN systems to have a better performance. The important thing is also that it does not limit you when making the necessary estimates.

ConstructConnect
iSqFt is a solid bidding platform that allows for document sharing and communication management between general contractors and subcontractors. The platform is not as intuitive and easy to use as other bidding platforms I have used such as Building Connected, but it gets the job done. Our clients drive which platform they use so we don't have control of which platform they use.

  • I dislike when building plans are loaded as just one huge file and not separated by divisions.
  • Simply the search function.

I have never had a problem with support from the iSqFt team. They are continually reaching out with tips and tricks to make using their software easier. Anytime I've had a problem - which is seldom - they have been extremely prompt with their response on how to fix it.

Alternatives Considered
eTakeoff
eTakeoff is much more dynamic, more up-to-date, it has more functionalities and integrations that allow us to be more focused on project development. I would recommend promoting the platform more and creating a community of users to share their experiences and grow with the use of eTakeoff. I could also recommend a section where the user can be guided in real time.

I have been invited to view projects on other platforms such as Procore and have been required to enter a login for certain jobs. However, I can't find any where to register for the site. This may be something I've overlooked but the fact that I can't find it right away made me prefer iSqFt.

Return on Investment
eTakeoff
  • I strongly recommend to declare a design and scaling plan before making the purchase the eTakeoff Basic license has several limitations that will drive you to make a forced upgrade before even kicking out the app for the estimators
  • Affordable at a regular cost considering that Autodesk Solutions like Revit will be a much higher fee per services.
  • The ROI can be achieved after the first 6 months of the initial set up of traces, custom settings and list of items to be used on the construction project.

  • I have done a lot of take-offs on iSqFt and won a few that I have done on there but like I said, if I can get the plans elsewhere I do.
