Overall Satisfaction with On-Screen Takeoff

We utilize On-Screen Takeoff from start to finish on all projects.
  • Increases the speed of the estimating process
  • Allows us to break down the project into manageable pieces
  • 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.
  • For us, it has undoubtedly been a positive experience. We have been using it since 2000, so we have a lot of time invested in the program.
  • We certainly use less paper than we did before we started using On-Screen Takeoff.
I have only used On-Screen Takeoff. I have not had the opportunity or desire to use a different product. We also use their sister software called Quick Bid, so we are locked in with the On Center Suite.
They are generally good to work with. We have not had that many issues, so I guess that is a good thing.

  • I would recommend On-Screen Takeoff to any contractor that is not using it for estimating purposes. It helps the process in so many ways.
  • I guess if it was something straightforward, it might not be the most cost-effective solution. For what we do, it is indispensable.
