PlanSwift is a construction management software used for takeoff and estimating of commercial and residential projects. It can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise and is suited for both small and enterprise projects. It is used primarily for a variety of construction works, including HVAC, plumbing, landscaping, electrical, concreting, flooring, painting, and framing. The system is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, as well as with Android and iOS for mobility.
General contractors, estimators, and subcontractors will find PlanSwift’s on-screen digitizing interface easy to use, which can help them complete estimates fast and win more bids. They can measure area or square footage, item counts or linear specs, affording them flexibility in estimating projects of different specs. PlanSwift also features rulers, compasses, calculators, and tables to help you finalize an estimate including cost-of-materials, labor, and equipment.
Furthermore, the system is easy to use with its drag-and-drop and point-and-click tools. Estimates can be exported quickly to Excel and shared with the team or clients. Other key features include tools for assemblies and parts, share estimates and file types.

The benefits of PlanSwift are, you can generate estimates and costing fast, plus it is easy to use. Here are more details:
Generate estimates fast
PlanSwift helps you come up with accurate estimates fast using drag-and-drop and point-and-click tools. You can easily isolate portions or areas of a digitized blueprint or sort relevant items to measure costing and requirements. Areas like walls, ceilings, footings, partitions, studs, floor areas, fixtures, fittings, and headers can be selected individually or as a group based on what you want to calculate or measure. The software automatically generates measurements such as areas and volumes to help you arrive at accurate estimates. This way, you’re assured that your costing always provides you with a healthy margin.
Estimate costing fast and more accurately
PlanSwift makes it easy to cost in all necessary items in your estimates with the use of templates. The templates feature assemblies, materials, and parts that go into standard areas, for example, flooring and ceiling, so you can quickly finish a takeoff or estimate for regular construction projects. The templates allow you to identify fast the quantity, requirements, and cost of parts and the project as a whole. The templates also automatically calculate the estimates including markup, wastage, labor, and equipment with the use of rules and drag-and-drop tools.
Templates can be customized
The templates are designed to help you speed up estimates and takeoffs, but they can also be configured for special projects. For instance, a template can be customized to consider a uniquely shaped floor area. After configuring the area, the template can automatically calculate the requirements and costing, providing you still a faster and more accurate way to submit estimates.
