BuilderMT and eTakeoff Create Alliance and Integration Path
BuilderMT Users Can Now Run Estimating Takeoff and Pre-Bid Processes Without Paper Plans. eTakeoff Quantities Can Be Transferred to Spreadsheets or Other Estimating Applications.
LAKEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BuilderMT, the widely-acknowledged market share leader in workflow management solutions for home builders, today announced that it has created an alliance and integration path with eTakeoff, the construction industry’s leading digital takeoff system.
“The advantages of working with electronic plans is well-known, not only because they eliminate printing costs, but because digital plans can be scanned and measured automatically, thereby dramatically improving material and quantity accuracy”
Through this alliance, BuilderMT users can access eTakeoff to engage in paperless, digital takeoff for quantities during the estimating and pre-bid processes. The takeoff process, which has historically been a laborious and paper-based, can now be done digitally and with ease, without the need to print plans, nor work in a paper format of any kind.
eTakeoff allows BuilderMT users to view the plans with powerful zooming and scrolling capabilities; users can also switch between drawings instantaneously, while quickly measuring counts, lengths and quantities. Plan measurements can be displayed in an infinite variety of colors and patterns to identify the type of construction or the materials used, and measurements from multiple plan sheets can be easily totaled or combined in calculations. Completed takeoffs can be shared electronically throughout an organization and/or printed for field use.
“The advantages of working with electronic plans is well-known, not only because they eliminate printing costs, but because digital plans can be scanned and measured automatically, thereby dramatically improving material and quantity accuracy,” said BuilderMT’s President Tom Gebes. “We are now offering the most-advanced electronic takeoff capabilities to our users, which will add even more to their bottom lines.”

From our free Basic viewer to our Advanced and Premier products, there’s a solution for every need. At eTakeoff, we believe in electronic plans are good for the property owner, good for the contractor, and good for the environment.
