Manual processes are slow, but tried and true. Moving from manual takeoff to electronic takeoff has never been easier. On-Screen Takeoff follows the estimators' process, and “if it’s colored, it’s counted.” Linear footage, areas, and counts are automatically collected with a simple click and drag of the mouse. Real time recording saves hours of back and forth from plans to the ledger or Excel.
Double- and triple-checking your takeoff summaries for accuracy costs you time -- and doesn't guarantee everything's accounted for. Worrying about manual mistakes or oversight in the summary doesn't have to be an issue. Summaries are automatically built as each area is taken off. View the customizable summaries in real time or when you complete takeoff.
Instead of retaking off a whole floor or an entire set of plans – quickly takeoff changes or repeating assemblies on each floor with typical groups. This prevents unnecessary rework and eliminates lost productivity counting similar items.
I’ve purchased my own applications from On Center Software, so I can always have these estimating tools.

Never Miss a Revision
Identify plan changes in seconds.
Changes to drawings happen all the time, and finding the smallest changes can take minutes if not hours. Instead of spending time scouring for those changes, simply upload the new plans and compare to the current set. On-Screen Takeoff’s industry-changing overlay technology will quickly show where the changes occurred and highlight them in blue.
Getting RFI responses can be time-consuming and difficult, especially when trying to get everyone working on the same document. Don’t waste time going back and forth. Improve efficiency by copying and pasting plans with takeoff, notes, and annotations to submit as part of the RFI. This will simplify RFI discussions and unnecessarily eliminate interpretation.
Quickly assemble cost estimates and budgets anywhere.
Everything starts with the takeoff, but if the information collected isn’t easy to use or requires re-entry into another system to be useful, valuable time is lost. When using On-Screen Takeoff, access to the important data is a click away. Export into Excel, one of 14 integrated Accounting systems, or build cost estimates in real time with Quick Bid.
