Faster quote turn around times, allow me to get more projects and have more profitable quotes since I'm not spending so much time that I don't mind charging more.

Avantages

The ease of use, the more complicated uses that I don't need are easy to turn off to simplify everything.

Inconvénients

The only issue I have is that it seems to hide my saved projects every time I update the software but that's probably easy to fix if I put my mind to it.

My overall experience has been great. I was using another take off software and Active Takeoff is far better. I enjoy using this software and if I ever have a question the support team is spot on. Very pleased.

Avantages

The overall layout and design. Easy to use.

Inconvénients

Wish they had curve points and auto counter

Inconvénients

The scale needs to be a little more inclusive. I find several Plans with a 3”-1’ scale and Active Takeoff does not offer that option. Manual adjustments are fine, but often times there are not any good measurements provided to set that scale.

If they was to fix the above problems and implement suggested updates then I would give this product 10 out of 10.

Avantages

Easy to understand layout. Reasonable Price.

Inconvénients

No Auto save so lose work unless you manually save all the time. Issues with memory, have to close other programs to make it function properly sometimes.

We do a lot of take off from houses to condos to rental buildings with it.

Avantages

I liked the corners highlighting in red when you do the take off.

Inconvénients

To re go in and modify take off. I don’t like how it generates the report

Estimating Software

Publié le 2018-12-04

Avantages

Very simple to use and figure out without any prior knowledge of this software. Speeds up the process of doing takeoffs with the extensions features.

Inconvénients

Although this is very good at figuring out the estimates for the basic trades, if you're looking for more niche trades, those have not been added yet.

Réponse de Quoter Software

Hello James,

Thanks for the great review. Our new Estimating item feature lets you build your product/labour/equipment inventory then edit your own quantity generating formulas. Pretty much any niche is covered. Please contact our support desk for a quick demo.

I am new to the world of takeoffs. As a remodeling contractor I always thought takeoffs were for big commercial companies. The program is fun and intuitive. There are a few tricks and shortcuts that I am starting to incorporate. The estimating component is out there for me to learn. Other than a few frustrations with my lack of experience and the way I do thing vs the way the industry does them. I am adapting and enjoying the program very much.

Avantages

It is easy and fun to use. It makes my estimates extremely accurate. It has all the functionality that I need in my residential remodeling business. My designer wants to use it but I am having too much fun to give it up.

Inconvénients

There are some features that I have asked for that do not exist yet. I have figured out how to work around them so nothing bad to say. My understanding is that it is a little less flexible and powerful than some far more expensive software packages but I am perfectly OK with that.

Avantages

The software is extremely easy to use really takes no time to learn.

Inconvénients

I would like to see a scale that goes up to at least 1 1/2" currently the software only goes up to 1" and there are a lot of drawings that are 1 1/2" scale and this has to be done manually and it takes time.

Not many companies offer the level of service that these guys do. Active takeoff is easy to use, easy to setup and makes tracking estimates effortless. I have used just about every piece of takeoff software out there and this program is by far the best.

Avantages

Super easy to setup, tracks all of my takeoff and sort info exactly how I need it in reports.

Inconvénients

Sharing takeoff files from one machine to the next isn't available yet, but I hear that's in the next update. Other than this...The software is flawless.

Saving time completing take-offs

Avantages

Very easy to navigate around the system to access and use the features. The system has halved the time it takes to complete a take-off.

Inconvénients

If the copy and paste feature was improved for example if it was possible to copy an item and paste in a specific location, currently the item overlays which means the copied item has to be moved to the required destination.

Also the extension feature could be improved.

Réponse de Quoter Software

Hello Michael,

Quick and Simple to Use

Publié le 2018-11-20

Avantages

The product is simple to use, with all the tools clearly labeled and it is fast to use.

Inconvénients

There are a few selections I would like to see for the reports. Having a cubic yard item to total the takeoff with is handy, but I would like to see a little more flexibility with the quantification. For example, I would prefer to have the option to choose square yards of concrete rather than cubic yards, as I have to do a little additional multiplication.

None. Love the product.

Avantages

The graphic user interface is familiar if you're a Windows user, and most of us are, so to me that's what makes the app so easy to use. In my opinion, if you've ever used the On Center On Screen app, learning how to use this app is a breeze.

Inconvénients

No "cons" in my opinion. Fully functional from the time it's downloaded.

My manual method of scaling drawings was not accurate and extremely time consuming. This product has saved me weeks over the course of a year.

Avantages

Accurate, easy to learn, files things easily and it saves me tons of time looking for the "one page" with measurements in a 50 page file.

Inconvénients

The curser is hard to use when trying to do perimeters. A double click will not shut off and i have random lines being measured.

Because I use it as a culculating tool for surfaces it has saved me time to estimate, and is pretty accurate.

Avantages

Calculating surfaces is my biggest use of the program at this time, I have not progress to utilizing the estimate sheet as of yet but intend to try it in the next few weeks.

Inconvénients

I am still very new with the system, and as a user I am not familiar with all the features available or not available.

So far so good. Looking forward to updates in the future to accommodate more for the finish contractors.

Avantages

It's ease of use, it is very self explanatory.

Inconvénients

It doesn't have customizable features for flooring. It is hard to measure for trim and/or base because there isn't an applicable extension. And the fact that there isn't a snap to feature, so it is hard to get a straight line quickly.

I have been using Active Takeoff for a few months now & find it great to use. I think it is great value & easy to use. I did have a problem when I bought a new computer & transferred all my files over. Active Takeoff was not working but after contacting the support team I had an answer very quickly & it turned out to be an issue with the name of my user file nothing to do with the program Active Takeoff.

I demoed a variety of take-off packages and for the price this one seemed to be the best value for what we were looking for. The software is missing some features (like an arc-creation tool and ability to add custom extensions) that I saw in other, more expensive packages, however to be fair these packages were at least twice the price of ActiveTakeoff. Overall I'm very happy with the program so far, and when I do have a quesiton or concern, the responsiveness of the customer service has been fantastic.
