Save Time

At least 10 times faster than print and measure

Reduce Cost

Complete more estimates for the same amount of time


Printing costs of paper and ink catridges

Those companies who find it necessary to have people working from home can do so with Planswift by following these simple steps.

You can have as many people as you want as users but access is governed by the number of licences you have. For example you could have a licence with 2 seats on it and 6 enabled users but only 2 at any time can use it.

To help with that we have wrote a quick step by step guide to enable users to transfer licenses to other users and machines.

Contractors and Specialist Subcontractors

We are pleased to report that we have a sizeable list of customers from these categories and that they cover every aspect of construction between them. 

They include companies of all sizes and locations in the UK from smaller regional businesses to £multi-million PLCs.

The common factor for all of them is the need to streamline their own aspect of construction estimating and we are also seeing that the bigger users are encouraging their sub-contractors to use the Planswift software so that they have a common approach.

Construction estimating software continues to develop and improve and this is where Planswift listens to our customers when it comes to suggestions for inclusion.

As any piece of software gains acceptability and growth it is natural for other companies to design plugins to cover certain specific situations.

A great example of this is CostCentral which provides a live link between Planswift and customer bespoke cost databases. By using Planswift to capture the quantities and then applying real life costs the estimate becomes further enhanced and accurate. 

CostCentral enables user specific cost libraries that contain all their costs for fully finished items for example with reinforced concrete beams it will include access, formwork, different concrete mixes, reinforcing steel all itemised under one heading.

Software Reliability and Security

It is important to have software that has been carefully built to provide reliability and security as there is nothing worse than losing a big estimate which is close to completion because the programme crashes. This aspect was thoroughly investigated by us before we used it for the first time and most recently by a multi-national company who had to be certain that it was based on solid architecture.
