Overall Satisfaction with On-Screen Takeoff

At our company, we use On-Screen Takeoff as an estimating tool to help obtain quantities or take-off on projects. Additionally, we use it on the project management side to help write change orders and to obtain quantity take-off. This software helps to address the need to print and scale drawings as it can be completed digitally.

A few of my coworkers have used other estimating software, including Bluebeam; however, they all seem to come back to and recommend On-Screen Takeoff. I have personally used Bluebeam and I think it works fine, but it is the cheaper version of this software. Cheaper isn't always better when presenting to potential clients!
The On-Screen Takeoff support staff has helped several coworkers and myself on a wide array of issues. They are typically fast in their response time and willing to help no matter the issue. During one call in particular, I was able to get my issue resolved and even learned a feature of the product that I didn't previously know about. A++ rating!

We enjoy using this estimating software and would highly recommend companies of 10 to 1,000 use it. After you sit down and use On-Screen Takeoff for a week, it becomes second nature and makes completing quantity take-off easy. We have incorporated this software into our estimating and have also used it to secure estimated projects. We can show and present our take-off to the client to ensure accuracy.
