Measure & takeoff estimating for flooring contractors

About MeasureSquare

Measure Square is an onsite measuring and desktop takeoff estimating tool for flooring, contractors, dealers, installers, and related trades. Users are able to estimate product quantities, generate cut sheet and seam diagrams, and share and collaborate on projects with colleagues. The web-based solution includes features such as a CRM, diagramming software integration, and the ability to work on projects via ipad/iphone and android devices, as well as sync projects in the cloud.

Measure Square’s native mobile app helps users plan flooring jobs with tools for measuring on the go by connecting a digital laser meter for quick and accurate measurements. Users are able to select products and generate quotes for clients, as well as capture photos and customer signatures on the spot. Contractors can produce, edit and send accurate product / seam diagrams and cut sheets to installers directly via their tablet device, as well as share, print, and email on the fly. Users have the ability to sync all projects across devices. Users can begin a project using the mobile app, and finish it off using Measure Square’s desktop Windows Platform.

The Windows desktop takeoff estimating tool helps users create and manage commercial projects, allowing users to visually drag and drop products and add-ons to room areas and walls, as well as base, pad, transition, welding and labor charges. Users can import large scale drawings and plans with over 100 pages, and select specific pages to ensure accuracy. Users can set individual waste percentages by product, and create and design complex tile designs with the tile pattern designer tool. Measure Square design worksheets can be exported to Excel, and reports can be created and sent out to colleagues including project diagrams, quantities and installation details.

    Almost all benefits from M2, it would just be easier to list the issues:
    #1. Accounting software integrations seem sub-par compared to in-house accounting systems. My boss is actually still looking into using RFMS or Jobrunner because the transition from takeoff to accounting is so seamless. This will not be a real problem for residential users, but commercial companies will find this transition to be invaluable.
    #2. Large projects are tough in m2. The system for scrolling through tabs should be simpler. The vertical list of all pages is easy to scroll through, but it would be nice to have it up all the time, more like a toggle on/off instead of click-to-activate. Also it would be nice to have a folder structure for the plan pages. "Architectural plan" folder, "Interior Design" folder, and a "Specs" folder. This is becoming more key now that you have implemented the highlighter: people like to highlight their specs and include some pages in the screenshots.

    Pros

    The wall feature is so intuitive. This provides the user with the chance to actually build a 3d version of the job while doing their takeoff. This is helpful in so many ways, but the main one is that it helps catch mistakes that could easily be missed if using a 2d takeoff software.

    Cons

    The product database system. It's not bad, but other companies have seemingly better solutions for this part of the takeoff. We need to display all line items on our bid: each parent item with its addons underneath. The only way to get this done in M2 is to build out multiple assemblies for each item type, with addons that are unique to their parent item. This resulted in a lot of time setting up, but that isnt even the issue. Our item system is just way more convoluted than it needs to be, because we cant simply create a "Ceramic Tile" assembly, and use that one over and over again. As a side note: not being able to have two separate items with the same name seems counter intuitive. We have found ways around all of this in Excel, but I would think that many companies could benefit by making the product database a little more flexible. I could talk about this forever, shoot me an email if youd like.

    I find that whatever I am doing in the floorcovering world, M8 is the base of my workflow for estimating or presentation advertising tutoring; it's my go-to tool in 49 years as a flooring professional. Nothing is as dear to me as this software.

    Pros

    Measuresquare is a fast-loading mega powerhouse of Floorcovering estimating genius from beginning to end you can tell it was made by flooring professionals for flooring professionals. Anyone can start on M8 from the most basic "Box painter"all the way to power users and disrupters. All the tools for exceptional estimates and renders are available. The 3d render is a godsend for the 2d impaired visualizing complicated fascia and behind-the-scenes calculation on slab layouts . The ability to automatically attribute things like weld rod or cove sundries is far ahead of its time.

    Cons

    True mastery is not easily achieved like all thorough brilliant software (Auto cad, Photoshop, Sketch up); the sheer magnitude of options can take time.

    I LOVE MS2015... it makes my job so much easier and better organized.

    Pros

    I have so much more room in my office now that I don't have blueprints and huge files all over the place.

    Cons

    When I look at the new version I feel like I am looking at a beta version of software. I'm sure in the long run you have improved functionality but the the 2015 version just looks better and things are in places that just makes sense to me. Maybe some day I'll have the time to learn the new software but I just don't have time to learn all over right now... and I haven't' since it came out. I hate that I pay for the new version but still use an unsupported one but some day I guess I'll have to make the switch.

    The take-off and finish plans we provide to our sales force are very easy to read and we have had great response from them concerning how impressed the end-user is with the documentation.

    Pros

    The accuracy of the take-off, the take-off documents that are generated by the software are extremely easy to read.

    Cons

    I have been using the Measure Square software for many years and any features that I felt needed improvement have been addressed in the latest version. I can honestly say I have no complaints.
