Pest Control Estimating Software

Groundplan can be used to quickly takeoff and estimate an upcoming job by roughly calculating the surface area of the walls, floor, ceiling and yard measurements.

Alternatively, you can choose to dig into much more detail. Once you’ve measured the surface areas, you can begin adding items such as doors and windows and start dropping those items onto your plan.

You can associate each of those items with a cost of time and materials to more accurately factor in the extra time and chemicals required for the job. As each point is plotted, Groundplan is calculating costs as you go.

How does Groundplan work?

Groundplan is a powerful piece of software for pest control estimating. It’s worth taking a look at the User Guides to learn about all of its features but here’s the overview.

Once you’ve set the scale, go ahead and measure the length of each wall or use our count tool to mark slab penetrations. Oh, and there’s no need to measure walls twice. You can tell Groundplan which are the two-sided walls.

For more detail, use the library of assemblies and catalogue items to transform your measurements into a full estimate of your project.

Stages are another facility in Groundplan where you may want to separate out the interior inspection, the exterior and the yard for instance.

To save you loads of time, Takeoff Templates and Project Templates are included or you can create your own for regularly recurring processes to use time and time again.

Just follow a few simple steps to calculate your next pest control estimate.

  1. Upload your PDF plan and set the scale. For instance: A3 @ 1:100.
  2. Name your ‘Stage’, it may be ‘Construction’ for instance.
  3. Apply your custom Pest Control measurement template.
  4. Whip around your plan and trace the walls as Groundplan begins calculating the measurements and the associated costs.
  5. You can add as much detail as you like, nail down those intricate areas, and estimate your time and cost down to a hair’s breadth. Or, if you just want an overview, you can use it to simply count, measure and calculate.

How does it help me to estimate my pest control job?

How many times have you ended up taking much more time on a job than you’d first thought it was going to take? If you can get a copy of the plans, and given how quickly you can make calculations in Groundplan, you can even save yourself a trip to site by providing an accurate quote based on the actual size of the property.

This process puts the power into your own hands, it gives you control of your margins and ensures every hour on site is factored into the quote.
