On-Screen Takeoff is a dedicated program for quantity takeoffs. While other programs have similar capabilities, On-Screen Takeoff is by far the most user-friendly and easiest to integrate with other tools. Being able to copy and paste directly into Excel is a huge boon for our company as the estimate can be put together smoothly and without the risk of typos.

Takeoff Super Software

I think that the simplicity and set up of On-Screen Takeoff makes this an overall better software than Bluebeam or Navisworks. Both of which can be used to create good takeoffs but they are limited in ways that on screen is not so it is a much more versatile take off tool. I also think the focus for On-Screen Takeoff is for the estimates and take off so it may not do all that the others do but if you are going to be focused on providing estimates on screen Takeoff is the tool to use.

On-Screen Takeoff is very easy to learn and very effective at getting the quantities desired. You can set the scale, create groups, layers, typical groups and so much more. It can also be used to produce visual aids for communicating information to individuals that might not be familiar with the project.

Powerful and Efficient

OST simply is a more robust product at the moment. Bluebeam is fine for a simple, quick takeoff but requires a vast amount of effort to layer, perform the calculations you need and (most importantly) secure your takeoff. Bluebeam may head for there in the future, but for right now OST is miles ahead.

OST is still the most efficient and quick way of doing 2D takeoff. The software mentioned above all have their positives and negatives and they all have things which are far superior to OST. But OST really takes the cake when it comes to usability and a simple and useful interface. It's just so easy to create a condition on the fly and start taking something off. When it comes to actual 2D takeoff, OST is by far the easiest and most efficient way of getting the work done.
