If you feel it’s taking you way too long to rough out a landscaping estimation, you may be missing out on dozens of bids to competitors. Landscapers can create bids quickly and easily using On-Screen Takeoff®, Quick Bid®, and Digital Production Control™. With DPC, you can even analyze your labor production in the field.
Calculate takeoff with a few clicks. On-Screen Takeoff (OST) helps you count the number of yaupon holly trees, crepe myrtles, and boxwoods, quickly and easily. You can also calculate the total area or volume of sod, planting soil, sand, pavers, sidewalks, including exact measurements of irregular shapes. Sprinkler heads and irrigation lines can also be calculated easily.
Detailed cost estimates can be assembled easily and rapidly. Quick Bid streamlines the estimating process by automating and consolidating functions, minimizing data-entry errors, miscommunications, duplications, and simple calculation mistakes. Landscaping contractors can quickly calculate everything they need to estimate and bid on projects from trees to sod to sprinkler lines. For a finished bid, you can also manage the burden and add markups such as overhead and profit. Quick Bid provides an email quote process for suppliers to submit up-to-date material pricing.
On-Screen Takeoff makes my job of estimating projects very simple, faster and more accurate, so that I can move on to other projects.

Digital Production Control
With Digital Production Control, you can track labor efficiency and the percentage complete of work. Knowing the percent complete will let you immediately see if you are under expected production so you can do something about it. Digital Production Control can help you narrow the gap between how many trees you think your crews can plant in a day/hour vs. what they are capable of in the field. This is great information that can help you be more accurate on your estimates.
