Outstanding Product and Customer Service

Makes me and my team more accurate everyday by allow us to generate better estimates for the top builders in the construction industry.

Pros

As one of the largest lumber retail companies in the industry, we always work to stay up with new technology trends to ensure we provide our clients with the most accurate estimate for their construction projects. We were looking for a leader in the industry that could provide us with a stable software that would be able to meet our daily demands. The software and the Team at Square Takeoff have went above and beyond meeting every need and has helped us acheive the goals we have set forth as a company. Keep up the great work.

Cons

Nothing yet. Currently the product meets our needs and if we need a feature they are fast to add it.

Response from Square Takeoff

Thanks Matt. It has been an honor to work with you and the 84 Lumber Company. We look forward to continue to assist you and your customers with your estimating needs.

Simple But Powerful

Reviewed on 2016/07/11

Started using the product a few weeks ago after years of using a competitors product. Only reason for the switch was I upgraded to an iPad PRO for work and my other solution didn't work. I was skeptical at first about using a cloud takeoff solution and was worried that it would be slow. To my surprise it actually works faster than my desktop software. Overall it has a similar feel to my desktop product but worked on my MAC and iPad PRO. Customer service was great and helped me out with a few questions I had. Price was good and the sales rep even saved me more on my monthly subscription. Overall I give them two thumbs up.

Pros

Cloud based.
Easy share feature.
Easy to manage bids.
Good price.
Operates like a desktop solution.
Note feature with attachments.

Cons

Missing some features of my desktop software. But spoke to them and they said development would work on them and have already launched one of those features.

Response from Square Takeoff

Thank you Mark. It has been great working with you and your company.

Takeoffs made easy

Reviewed on 2018/11/20

Uploading plans is super easy. Then you just put in your scale and you are on the path to getting all dimensions. It really comes in handy when we are bidding multiple aspects of a build.

Pros

We like that we no longer have to do any manual calculations when bidding a job. We just put in the plant and point and click our way to accurate numbers.

Cons

The user interface could use some refinement. Finding exactly what you are looking for can take a bit too long if you are not a daily user.

Response from Square Takeoff

Thank Justin for your review. We are open to discuss any ideas you have that will make the program better for you and all of our other users.
