Square Takeoff Overview

What is Square Takeoff?

Square Takeoff is a cloud-based takeoff and estimating software which provides construction professionals with the tools to manage bids and complete construction estimates for any residential or commercial project. The platform gives users access to thousands of prebuilt material templates to use to estimate their next project, but also enables users to customize their templates to meet the specific needs of their project. As a cloud-based solution, Square Takeoff gives users the flexibility to manage bids and estimates anytime, anywhere, via any internet-enabled device.

Square Takeoff offers an all-in-one takeoff and estimating solution, allowing users to complete full project takeoffs and estimates on screen using digital blueprints or Google satellite images. Square Takeoff’s product features enable users to print and share plans, load all major image file types, and calculate complex roof and wall areas. Users simply point-and-click with their mouse, finger or stylus in order to calculate square footage, linear footage and/or item counts. Square Takeoff also enables users to navigate plans easily, maintain accuracy with the scale tool, and identify takeoffs using notes and colors.

Bid management technology allows users to keep track of their bid due dates and project start dates, while project collaboration tools enable users to share jobs to collaborate between construction phases. Since all projects are stored in the cloud, Square Takeoff ensures that all project and job information is secure and readily accessible. Other Square Takeoff features include custom material reporting, data export to Excel, custom material formulas, Google Maps integration, and more.

Drastic increase in accuracy of takeoff and estimation

Simple But Powerful

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.

Takeoffs made easy

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.
