On-Screen Takeoff

I think most of the reasoning was just provided on the previous pros and cons questions. On-Screen Takeoff (OST) is well suited for doing either quick takeoffs or getting into an elaborate, detailed takeoff. All though the viewing tools are quick and easy, I would still very much prefer using BlueBeam for looking through an overall set of drawings. With all of the hyperlink and bookmark functions of BlueBeam, OST doesn't compare and I rarely use OST unless I'm actually doing a takeoff.

Raken is a great way to keep track of the day to day work being done on the job site. It's especially good at keeping all members of the project on the same page and all updated with the most current information on the job. Photos help assist office personnel and Project Managers of the progress on the job site.

Pros

On-Screen Takeoff

  • The biggest thing for me is that it is so easy to use, which allows it to be used widely throughout our organization without a lot of intense training.
  • Another great thing is that it does not matter how big or little the scope of the take off may be, it works just as well for a whole 12 story building take off as it does for a stretch of sidewalk.

Cons

On-Screen Takeoff

  • It would be nice if you could select an object that occurs on multiple sheets, copy, and paste it into change orders or alternates.
  • If you could search for where a certain condition is being used (which sheet) and go directly to that page or pages, that would be cool.

  • I hear some feedback from our field team that occasionally the application is slow or crashes on their devices.

The On-Screen Takeoff support staff has helped several coworkers and myself on a wide array of issues. They are typically fast in their response time and willing to help no matter the issue. During one call in particular, I was able to get my issue resolved and even learned a feature of the product that I didn't previously know about. A++ rating!

The customer service is excellent. They send webinar to watch and material to read to keep you informed.

Alternatives Considered

On-Screen Takeoff

Being able to train individuals in a single afternoon on the program and trusting them to get you something usable as soon as possible is quite invaluable. It is also something that I feel is unique to this program. It is just easier.

Raken

We use both software. Procore, we just recently switched over to. It is a compelling program, but just at a higher price point. Raken is a more affordable option, although they may not have exactly all the features that Procore has. But it does what it needs to pretty well.

Return on Investment

On-Screen Takeoff

  • The software has more than paid for itself because the company has been able to save lots of money when awarding to subs since it is easy to verify quantities to qualify their bids.
  • Less of a chance of under-ordering products since the visible audit trail improves accuracy. Also you spend less since you aren't ordering more than you should be.

Raken

  • Raken is improving communication from the field to the office.
  • It's improving our daily job site documentation.
  • It has improved our timesheet processes, and simplified them.
