Save Time & Improve Accuracy with Easy to Use Construction Quantity Takeoff and Estimating Software
The Quantity Takeoff is the most important part of the construction estimate. The takeoff determines the amount of materials, labor, equipment and subcontractor costs required to construct the project. The Construction Estimate, used to bid the project, is completed by applying unit costs to the quantities taken off. If your quantities are wrong, the estimate will also be wrong. Having accurate quantities is critical to your estimating success. In order to create a construction estimate and bid, you need top-notch takeoff software that quickly, easily and accurately lists the quantities so that your cost estimate is accurate and profitable. Our best in the industry takeoff software lets you craft and organize a list of everything that is needed to construct any type of project. And both BidScreen XL and SiteWorx/OS allows you to organize this digital takeoff directly in Microsoft Excel where you’ll estimate the cost. Vertigraph’s takeoff and estimating software is ideal for general contractors, sub-contractors and professionals that are seeking to takeoff and estimate construction projects quickly, easily and accurately in Microsoft Excel.

“I love BidScreen XL and I’ve built a bad-ass takeoff and estimating spreadsheet over the years. BidScreen XL is simple, effective and it drops everything I need into my Excel workbook. Over the years I have investigated all of the leading estimating programs and I’ve found that, by far, Excel with BidScreen XL can’t be beat. BidScreen and the support is terrific.”
Jason Schnurr, Vice-President
“We have licensed BidScreen XL for our asphalt takeoffs and SiteWorx/OS for excavation takeoffs and both of these programs are outstanding. We also have a license of Carlson Takeoff. Before licensing the SiteWorx/OS software we had seven engineers doing takeoffs using Carlson. Now, one estimator does all of the site excavation takeoffs with SiteWorx/OS. In comparison to the Carlson software, SiteWorx is much more accurate and faster. We have found that completing a takeoff with SiteWorx/OS is four times faster in comparison with the Carlson software and it is much easier. I highly recommend both programs.”

“I’ve used many programs in the past and BidScreen XL is the best. It is quick and easy and does exactly what I need and want with no hassles. It is an excellent program. The visual picture of the takeoff allows me to check the quantities if there is any question.”

“I’ve been using BidScreen XL for over ten years. I wear a lot of hats here as the sole estimator and project manager. Implementing BidScreen XL with my Excel estimating spreadsheet was so easy and smooth. I’m an old concrete guy, not a young computer jockey, and I was much more productive and efficient the very first day. Today, I can’t live without BidScreen. We do three to four million square feet of tilt-up a year, and Excel with BidScreen XL is the best by far. There is nothing comparable. BidScreen XL is an outstanding and unmatched program! If anybody is interested, please have them contact me and I’ll be more than happy to give them my thoughts and answer any questions.”

“I provide takeoff and estimating services to three different grading contractors. I have been using SiteWorx/OS for over ten years and I use it nearly every day. I have become fast and efficient with the software. SiteWorx/OS is easy to get around in and do things, especially if you get a DWG file. About 20% of the files I work with are AutoCAD DWG files, 40% are vector type PDF files and the other 40% are raster type PDF files. Thankfully, the number of DWG and PDF vector files I’ve been receiving has steadily increased over the years. I much prefer working with the DWG and vector type PDF files. Previously I was the Chief Operating Officer of Jim L. Bost Construction and we used Agtek. SiteWorx/OS is a very good program and a good investment. The return of investment is exceptional especially when considering the initial cost. SiteWorx/OS is ten times faster than performing the takeoff manually and the quantities are accurate. I never had complaints regarding the quantities. Yes, I recommend SiteWorx/OS.”

“I’ve been using BidScreen XL and SiteWorx/OS for over ten years. Both of these programs meet my needs. I have no desire or need to switch programs. I use the software three times a week during the bidding season and approximately once a week when we’re busy with work. I recommend both programs since they are easy to use and they work. I have used and purchased database programs for estimating in the past such as Heavy Bid and Hard Dollar. I have learned that measuring into Excel with BidScreen and building the estimate in Excel is better, easier and I have much more control of the estimate than the more cumbersome database programs that I have used. For site excavation, doing the takeoff with SiteWorx/OS is easy, it works, and it is the best. Again, I highly recommend both programs.”

“I have been using BidScreen XL for over ten years and we have seven licenses here. I personally use BidScreen on an Apple Mac computer. I like the idea that everything is captured and done in Excel. Since we currently use Excel for our estimating, BidScreen XL is much better than other takeoff programs that require you to move back and forth between Excel and the other programs. I really do like BidScreen XL and we had good luck with the program over the years.”
Dennis P., Senior Project Manager and Estimator
“I use BidScreen XL everyday, all day long. I really like the program, and I’ve learned some cool tricks that makes it quick and easy. We use our own Excel estimating spreadsheet, and it is nice how the takeoff and the color coded drawing are stored with the cell. I also like how I can print the color coded takeoffs for reference. Compared to other takeoff programs, BidScreen is easier and a lot less cluttered. It is the best program for takeoffs I have ever used.”
Amanda T., Estimator
“I’ve been using SiteWorx/OS since 2009, and I bid approximately one job per month. I am very pleased with SiteWorx; it does what I need it to do. Yes I recommend SiteWorx/OS. In fact I even recommended it to one of my competitors. SiteWorx/OS is a good cut and fill program.”
Jon T., Founder
“As the owner and lead estimator of a $7 million per year concrete contractor that bids retail centers, warehouses, medical offices and churches, I’ve been using Excel with BidScreen XL since 2001 for my takeoff and estimating. We are a middle size sub that bids ground-up concrete work that generally costs less than $1.5 million. I’m not a computer guy, but I think BidScreen with Excel is great. I initially started with the Vertigraph concrete template and customized it with our pricing system and other small adjustments. I often have another estimator assisting me. The beauty of our takeoff and estimating system is that anybody I hire can pick it up and learn how to use it quickly and easily. Just about everybody knows something about Excel and BidScreen is easy. In today’s market the amount of coverage on the concrete bids is substantial and the market is very competitive. The generals appreciate the consistency of our bids and as a result we do a lot of pre-bid budgeting for the GCs. Overall, BidScreen with Excel makes us more consistent, competitive and efficient. And I really enjoy using the program.”
