Takeoff & Estimating Software for General Contractors


Planswift Takeoff & Estimating Software combined with our GC plugin for Planswift create the most complete takeoff and estimating package available for General Contractors!

Import your digital plans, perform an on-screen takeoff and print your detailed material lists right out of Planswift!  It's that simple.  Planswift is the #1 takeoff & estimating software on the market.  Combined with our custom developed takeoff tools and reports (plugin) it creates the most powerful takeoff and estimating software package available for general contractors.

Our GC Plugin for planswift is the fastest way to generate complete, detailed material lists for all of your residential and commercial projects.  Need an accurate bill of materials for the trades that you self-perform, or maybe you want to be able to generate a bill of materials for most of the trades in order to validate your subcontractor's pricing?  Then this is the perfect takeoff and estimating software solution for you.


Need to generate preliminary or conceptual estimates quickly?  Our Project Estimate Plugin is organized by CSI Division and is made to allow you to quickly set up your own library of custom assemblies with your own pricing.  Simply set up the custom assemblies, perform an on-screen takeoff and print a detailed estimate report directly out of Planswift to either Excel or PDF file.

Using Planswift Takeoff & Estimating Software along with our robust assemblies and integrated custom reports is the fastest most accurate way to handle your estimating needs.

Are you still performing takeoffs by hand using a scale, notepad and a bunch of highlighters?  If so, it's time to bring your estimating process up to speed!  The fastest & easiest way to perform a takeoff is digitally, using Planswift Takeoff & Estimating Software.  Import a plan file of almost any format, scale the pages and quickly perform page after page of takeoff.  The next step is turning those takeoff measurements into item quantities, that's where our smart assemblies come in.  Our takeoff assemblies are developed so that as you're performing your takeoff, all of the quantities of the items that are part of that takeoff assembly are all calculating in the background.  No more measuring plans and then having to manually turn those measurements into item quantities.

The final part of the process is being able to get all of those calculated item quantities out of the software into a useable report.  This is where most other construction estimating software struggles.  All of our Planswift Plugins come with custom developed reports right in the software that automatically generate as you are performing your takeoff.  Once the takeoff is complete, simply click on the desired report and print it directly out of Planswift to Excel, PDF or other file format.  It's the fastest, most accurate way to estimate all of your projects.  All of our plugins are developed to be used for all types of construction including residential, commercial, multi-family, hospitality, industrial and more.

At Tradetek Plugins, we have over 25 years of hands on experience in the construction industry.  Our Planswift Plugins are developed by construction estimators, not software developers so they are very intuitive and make sense to construction folks.  Our plugins require a very small learning curve, so you'll be up and running the same day of your purchase!  Why spend months of time trying to set up Planswift on your own when you can be up and running immediately with an estimating system that has decades of experience built in!
