Usually takeoffs are time-costly and require discipline with a great eye for detail.
When done manually, the takeoff process can carry a high risk of error and only routine and a high level of determination can help to avoid mistakes in the calculations.
After printing the plans, highlighter colour markings are used to identify each object during counting and measuring. Again, this means, when done manually, the takeoff is a very time-consuming stage in the estimating process.
In short: Groundplan eliminates the need to print plans and allows you to quantify everything with a click of your mouse. Groundplan quantifies all your material and labour costs and pushes everything into a bill of quantities, saving you hours of estimating time.
