PlanHub Premier Adds Simple Seamless Takeoff App for Subcontractors
Easy-to-use, new takeoff feature will ensure accurate estimates and bids
https://planhub.com, the leading cloud-based software as service (SaaS) preconstruction platform, announced the launch of its new, seamless takeoff feature to the PlanHub app for premier-level subcontractors. The easy-to-use feature will ensure a simple and precise takeoff process for subcontractors that will increase accuracy, save time and win more business.
Takeoff is vital for creating accurate estimates and bids, the step when subcontractors measure, count, and list quantities of materials based on a set of drawings. With takeoff and bid management included in PlanHub Premier’s end-to-end cloud-based solution, subcontractors can more quickly prepare takeoff documents and instantly input the numbers into their bid without the need to pay for multiple solutions or download additional apps.
“Simple, accurate and precise takeoff is critical for subcontractors looking to win more projects and grow their business,” said Ro Bhatia, CEO of PlanHub. “Including our industry-leading takeoff tool in PlanHub premier will make it simple for subcontractors to quickly take accurate and detailed measurements from drawings, create more efficient and effective estimates and submit more winning bids.”
Using traditional tools, like paper printouts of plans, special rulers and a calculator is inefficient, time-consuming, and risky for construction professionals. Measuring from hard copies of plans increases the chances of making crucial errors since a multitude of manual calculations are required. Furthermore, the high cost of most standalone digital takeoff solutions are often prohibitive for all but the largest subcontractors.
The PlanHub Premier takeoff features includes:
- Access to the plans in the project’s Planroom
- Standard and calibrated scales for smoother plan documentation
- Measuring tools to count and measure all quantities and subtotals
- Save and export functionality
“Construction is one of the slowest industries to adopt new construction technology, so it is playing catchup when it comes to using data as a tool,” said Ro Bhatia, PlanHub CEO. “With PlanHub premier, subcontractors now have access to a full suite of easy-to-use innovative tools which streamline the entire process from start to finish.”
