eTakeoff estimating and integrating smart construction projects

eTakeoff is being used by our estimators as a comprehensive software to provide electronic views and takeoff tool for integration and to sync all the measures specs of footprints in the company across all construction projects.

This is a consolidated suite that gathers all to meet the needs of construction businesses, regardless of project size. The solution also integrates with a variety of electronic plan rooms and construction estimating solutions like Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit, or A360.

There are three product levels in eTakeoff, including a free Basic version, so companies can find their best fit and upgrade as needed. I do strongly recommend to use eTakeoff Server Client, with at least for starters 1 Server license and 4 seats for concurrent access for the estimators.
  • Client Server Solutions that allows to work simultaneously on the several footprints projects
  • Integration with Construction Management Software's like Sage 300 CRE - Estimating
  • Compatible with mobile devices like Microsoft Surface
  • Savings upon the printing process to start the measurement phase
  • Simplifies the amount of materials with only a pack of PDF footprints, granting the calculation of the material lists
  • eTakeoff for Construction companies that work with client-server architecture the experience for the end user can be rush between lag or slowness to access to the shared folder resources within WAN access, VPN SSL or IPSEC connections
  • eTakeoff can presents several tips and tricks to share project traces, common access for all the estimators can be overwhelming in case that the main shared folder is not set.
  • eTakeoff requires at least 100 Mbps for remote branch office to connect to Terminal Server station. The format and consult method of shared configurations and footprints can drain the network bandwidth.
eTakeoff for Multinational Construction companies has a challenge to overcome with the communication of package between shared resources, shared folders that came from the Server Solutions and also to declare new information without disrupting the pace of work from one to other estimator. Needs to cover the compression format view for Terminal Server users.

eTakeoff is used in our organization which is a construction company by the department of project , as a high end construction contractor we receive set of pdf drawing and we are using eTakeoff with the eBridge functionality to bring the measures to Sage estimating , the main problems we have with the app is issues with licensing and server-client license because we are working through a server to store all the company data. Also we have offices in various countries.
  • Organize measures of a project.
  • Create formula to measure various items including pitch and board sizes.
  • It can connect to estimating software like Sage.
  • Measurement summary list could have more intuitive ways to organize measures.
  • The server-client and project sharing needs to be easier.
  • The reference of a measure from other drawings is a process that need to be simplified.
Etakeoff is a software dedicated to project measuring and notes over pdf drawings, it is a software dedicated to the measurement side of an architectural project , so it have several options to enhance the measuring process , you can create custom formulas and use bid codes to identify each measure , and it is not suitable for any creation or drawing of a project.
