Here’s how you put together a takeoff and a quote with RapidBid:
What do you need to start your takeoff? The drawings. And they never just send the drawings you want – they send every drawing anyone involved in the construction project could ever need. There’s 20 minutes of painful analysis before you even get started.
RapidBid makes that simpler – preloading all the drawings and asking you a quick question. Do you need this or not?
Yes, and the drawing’s saved for you to takeoff for the bid. No and it’s set aside. All in a couple of clicks.
Now we’ve got your drawings together, you’re probably grabbing your car keys so you can head to the printers and get some full-size drawings printed out. No need. We’ll do all this on your screen.
First, RapidBid scans your chosen drawings and removes all that background clutter with a click. Just the one.
Now it’s time for scaling and drawing. And with the computer helping out, you’re going to turn hours and hours of measuring, sums and notes into a couple more clicks. Click to identify materials, and another click to autocount. A few clicks more and you’ve measured, scaled and coloured.
One last click and it’s all added to your estimate spreadsheet and you’re already taking off the next drawing.
By now, even if you’ve not watched that video of RapidBid in action, you should see just how this construction estimating software saves you hours and hours on every bid.
Four hours, if our expert is to be believed. Four hours that you can spend on site, or enjoying yourself. After all, what’s the use of working this hard if you can’t have some fun at the end of it?
