Overall Satisfaction with PlanSwift

It is only used by the estimating department. Some former members of estimating that currently work on project sites occasionally still use it. but most now use Bluebeam for the quantity takeoffs they need.
  • We use PlanSwift for quantity takeoffs. We are a general contractor.
  • We use some of the plug-ins including the Earthwork module.
  • I occasionally have to load drawings at a very low DPI or I get error messages. The resulting poor resolution makes the drawing difficult to read.
  • The estimators' productivity is greatly increased, I do takeoffs in less than half the time with more accuracy and detail captured.
  • Easy sharing of what was taken off, I'm able to ensure everything is captured.
Other than plugins, I have not looked at anything else.
Compared to its competitors planswift is by far the best quality and most adaptable digital takeoff tool out there. Its Earthwork module while good enough for my purpose as a general contractor is not good enough for excavators or other civil contractors.
