  • The main benefit for using this software is that our estimating takeoff productivity has gone way up from where it was before allowing us to compile bids and estimates in a quicker and more accurate way.
  • The ease of use has allowed us to reduce the time and investment we have had to put into training new hires on the software.

  • 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.

  • It makes it much quicker for doing 2D takeoffs and estimators are able to get things done more quickly
  • Being able to print out takeoffs in color and take them to the owner has been a good sales tool. Although, this is becoming archaic and OST needs to come up with 3D functionality. Owners are rarely impressed with colored 2D takeoffs like they used to be.

OST for Precision

  • Definitely a lot more precise than conventional methods.
  • Less prone to making mistake when adding up quantities in the summary for each area assigned.
  • Certain line items are easier to take off manually than using OST. (e.g. when counting the number of shear studs on each beam on each floor plan). I prefer just pulling out an old calculator because it's faster than assigning each beam x amount of shear studs. If OST can somehow read the boxed numbers on the plans, this would save me at least 1/3 of my time on each sheet.

  • It saves a lot of time especially when you need to revisit or redo a take-off.
  • It's faster to upload & perform a take-off in On-Screen versus doing take-offs by hand.
  • Although there is still room for error, there is less error in On-Screen since you set the scale of each sheet and it auto calculates your take-offs as you move along.
