If you're in any type of construction it is a no brainer. It makes analyzing a job extremely easy from estimating to constant review during all phases. The best part is allowing all of your information and calculations from a blueprint to be in a single, accessible location, allowing for a consistency across all departments. Everyone is working in a single spot which avoids confusion.

If you need a way to have digital drawings on site, this is the way to go. Also, as a Project Manager, it is amazingly easy to upload drawings. When uploading a large job, it's nice to have very few changes to make to the page number and title.

PlanSwift does basic quantity take-offs very well. If you take it to the next level, the software becomes very bulky and unintuitive to use. We have used On-screen-takeoff in the past, which does everything PlanSwift does, but better. However, it is much more expensive.
We use PlanSwift on a daily basis and have done so for more than 10 years. It can be better, but it is a good solution for take-off software. Other cloud-based software is slow to view pages, and not as fast as PlanSwift.

It is well suited for quantity take offs, better recommended for larger jobs; if needing a lot of smaller take-offs, it can be cumbersome and take a lot of time uploading and setting up.

I use PlanSwift for all my projects - it has just cut my time by a major percentage when it comes to quantifying a blueprint. At times there are funky areas, which are just hard to calculate on paper. It also has a great tool for scaling according to the dimensions, so if a drawing is missing a scale, you can always allot a scale by giving directions and then marking the points. I use this tool to check the scale as well - sometimes the drawings say something but the scale if off and you are left with an incorrect take-off. The dimension tool is a good way to check that.

We don't use it much for pricing purposes though, we have found other software which are more robust when it comes to estimation, but we can see using PlanSwift for pricing sometime in the future.
