PlanHub, the leading pre-construction software as a service (SaaS) company, is thrilled to announce the pre launch of Takeoff Core, an integrated software solution that helps subcontractors perform takeoffs efficiently, eliminating the need for manual work, outdated desktop software, and complicated digital solutions.
In pre-construction, time is money. The more time it takes to perform takeoffs and submit bids, the more subcontractors risk losing out on valuable revenue opportunities. Manual methods and locally installed desktop software can slow down takeoff processes, and many digital solutions currently on the market can be overly complex and not user-friendly.
Takeoff Core relieves bottlenecks in the pre-construction workflow with automation that makes measuring and estimating faster and more accurate than traditional methods.. It features a simple, user-friendly interface and intuitive measuring tools, so getting started is hassle-free.
“We wanted to create an easy-to-use tool that helps subcontractors jumpstart their takeoff in minutes,” says Darius Shafie, Product Manager at PlanHub.
“Takeoff Core does not require extensive onboarding or additional user training, so subcontractors can create takeoffs in as little as 15 minutes.”
Accuracy is everything when it comes to takeoffs—manual takeoffs are more error-prone, and incorrect measurements can lead to insufficient (or excess) materials, costing difficulties, and lost project revenue. With Takeoff Core, subcontractors can modernize their takeoff process with a digital solution that helps mitigate risks by providing better takeoff accuracy than traditional pen and paper or outdated desktop solutions.
Takeoff Core integrates seamlessly with PlanHub’s existing bid management software, offering increased flexibility and convenience. Subcontractors can pull data from takeoffs directly into their bids, saving valuable time normally spent compiling the information. Even projects and associated files sourced from outside PlanHub can be uploaded into the software, allowing subcontractors to manage all their takeoffs in a single place. A new Takeoff Dashboard lets team members see takeoff statuses and collaborate
in real time, regardless of where they are located. And because Takeoff Core is cloud-based, there
is no software to upgrade or make manual updates to—it easily scales as a business achieves growth.
“We understand the dedication and hard work subcontractors put into their businesses. Too often, those efforts are hindered by outdated processes and technology. With Takeoff Core, we empower contractors of all sizes with powerful, user-friendly tools, giving them the freedom to reclaim their time and boost efficiency.” says Ro Bhatia, CEO at PlanHub.
PlanHub’s dedication to innovation and commitment to customer-centricity continues to drive the company. As PlanHub prepares the full product launch later in Q3 2023, Premier Subcontractor customers can now take advantage of this advanced Takeoff tool to stay ahead of the competition.
