If it takes you two or three days to rough out a landscaping estimation, you may be missing out on dozens of bids to competitors. It’s an expensive waste of your time, and it costs you bid wins. Landscapers can create a bid in minutes using On-Screen Takeoff®, Quick Bid®, and Digital Production Control™.
Calculate area takeoff with a few clicks. On-Screen Takeoff (OST) counts the number of yaupon holly trees, crepe myrtles, and boxwoods, instantly. Total square feet of sod, planting soil, sand, pavers, sidewalks, and decking calculate instantly, including exact measurements of irregular shapes. Sprinkler heads and irrigation tubes are counted. Your labor time and rate link to the jobs. Planting six 50-gallon pin oaks takes longer than 1,000 sq. ft. of Bermuda sod.
Cost estimates can be assembled easily and rapidly, reviewed and revised with last-minute changes recalculated. Detailed bids for a new job generate in an hour, subsequent bids in 15 minutes. Quick Bid streamlines the estimating process by automating and consolidating functions, minimizing data-entry errors, miscommunications, duplications and simple calculation mistakes. Quick Bid provides an email quote process, eQuote, for suppliers to submit pricing. This feature allows landscapers to adjust bids quickly and effortlessly.
The time it takes to do manual takeoffs is ridiculous. We have to highlight the document, mark it up, etc. One mistake can be very costly. With On-Screen Takeoff, all the numbers are saved in the program, and the margin for error is much lower. I don’t have to worry about losing papers or going to someone else’s office to show them the plan. Time is money in our industry, and this software saves us a LOT of time. I would definitely recommend On-Screen Takeoff to anyone.

Digital Production Control
Incorporate your actual site area, from takeoff, to bid, to build. Digital Production Control (DPC) integrates and digitizes data from On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid and brings it all together for real time analysis of your current landscape job and a jump start on future bids. DPC continuously records project data for a detailed record of metrics. Automated audit trails with time-stamped documentation of completion stages, change orders, or rain delays, help clarify decisions and approvals should legal disputes sprout up.
