Key Features and Benefits of Planswift Construction Estimating Software

PlanSwift is the fastest and easiest to use software for accurately completing construction takeoffs on your computer screen.

With PlanSwift’s visual point-and-click interface, users can drag and drop individual products or assembled product groups directly onto a digitised blueprint. PlanSwift calculates the takeoffs automatically – saving valuable time and effort.

The feature-rich environment includes the ability to measure square, linear, and metric footage, pitch and angles, and see-through and comparative plan overlays, as well as the ability to email plans, update them, and even store them using industry-standard CAD and image files.
