Calculate everything you need to build masonry and stone projects including block, mortar, sand, cavity fill, bond beams, rebar, decorative stone, and concrete architectural pieces. Significantly reduce your takeoff time by using our powerful On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid. Now, it’s easy to handle change orders and addendums. Plug in the new drawings and crunch out new numbers with On-Screen Takeoff, Quick Bid, and Digital Production Control.
On-Screen Takeoff calculates total quantities of brick, CMU, architectural stone, and lintels. On-Screen Takeoff reduces human error and overlooked takeoff with a visual of the quantity takeoff. Easily share electronic plans between the office and the field. View your plans and digitizeddrawings from a laptop or tablet device.
Price estimates can be assembled quickly and easily reviewed and revised with last-minute changes recalculated. Quick Bid streamlines the estimating process by automating and consolidating many functions, minimizing data-entry errors, miscommunications, duplications, and manual calculation mistakes. Brick and stone contractors can quickly calculate every detail they need to estimate and bid. Quantities for bricks, mesh, adhesive, mortar, and production rates are compiled from your measurements and you can generate material lists, labor reports, and even a final estimate. For a finished bid, you can also manage burden and add markups such as overhead and profit. Quick Bid provides an email quote process, for suppliers to submit updated material pricing.
When I first got involved with On-Screen Takeoff, it was my intention to get Quick Bid six months later to give me time to get used to using On-Screen Takeoff. Within three weeks, I was also using Quick Bid. That’s how easy it is to use – and I had only been using a computer for two years prior to that.

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 areunder expected production so you can do something about it. Digital Production Control can help you narrow the gap between how many square feet you think your crews can install 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 estimate.
