“I have a mate who is an electrical contractor and he was telling me that he spent three weeks pricing a £200,000 job by hand. I told him that with my estimating and PDF take off software, I started a £700,000 job yesterday and finished it today!”
Cladding estimating and take off software - FREE demo available
How long do you spend estimating the cost of a cladding project? If you’re anything like the thousands of contractors we’ve spoken to while developing RapidQuote cladding software, even a small domestic cladding project can take five hours.
Five hours that you could’ve spent on site. Five hours that you could’ve spent on the golf course, in the pub, or spending time with your family.
RapidQuote turns those five hours of fiddling with pencils, rulers and calculators into a single hour of clicking, dragging and not much else. No counting by hand, no conflicting spreadsheets and no trips to the printers.
Independent tests show that RapidQuote can cut estimating times by 80%. To see what that means for your business, try our savings calculator.
Imagine what you could do with four extra hours, and then start saving time.
“As much as I would hate to help any of my competitors, I have to completely endorse RapidQuote in all that it offers for a business. Our quotation rate has increased from 50 to over 200 quotations per month.”
“RapidQuote is a lifesaver. It’s so easy to use, I just open the drawings and within minutes I have scaled, marked and priced up all my materials and labour. It has increased the speed that we can win work four times over, at least.”
“At last, take-offs for the 21st century! After years spent marking up drawings with highlighters and producing takeoff sheets, this is a revolution in estimating. Just can’t live without it – I now takeoff five projects in the time it used to take to do just one.”
“RapidQuote easily saves me 90% of my takeoff time, so it’s extremely useful for projects that need a quick turnaround. Brilliant software that is so easy to use.”
“Now, overall from top to bottom, RapidQuote’s software saves me about 70% of my time, and that makes an amazing difference. Quotes that took me five days before now take me less than two days, and I’ve only been estimating since January.”
“I work as an estimator Monday-to-Friday, 9-to-5, and your software and support is first class. I can takeoff and price well over 10 drawings in less than an hour, this used to take me half a day before! I just love how simple it is.”
“We used to do takeoffs with a scale rule and a pencil which was very time consuming and now we have a much quicker takeoff time. We only spend around 1 – 2 hours doing takeoffs with RapidQuote’s software and before it used to take us about 5 or 6 hours.”
“We used to have a three or four-process estimate which was over-complicated, but now we have a simple, one-process estimate. We definitely recommend!”
“Time saving is the biggest advantage for us by far. RapidQuote saved us about 80% of our time and increased our productivity 50%.”
Focus on what you’re good at, let our software do the rest
When you set up your cladding firm, it’s a safe bet that you thought your days would be full of timber cladding, composite panels and weatherboard – not highlighter pens, rulers and architectural printing.
With RapidQuote, pitching for new work will suddenly be far quicker and simpler, leaving you with more time to focus on getting on-site work done, keeping an eye on your trades or enjoying some hard-earned time off.
Wondering how? Picture your traditional pen and paper take off method, and compare it to how our cladding software handles a take off:
1) Download PDFs of your plans and drawings, and use RapidQuote to collect just the drawings you need.
2) Streamline your plans with one-click background removal.
3) Use the cladding software’s tools to quickly scale and measure areas on the plans.
4) Take a look at the quantity spreadsheet RapidQuote has generated.
5) Drop in your prices and rates, and let the spreadsheet handle the sums.
6) Send over your quote, and get on with something else with the four hours you’ve just saved yourself.
Time is money, and our effective, simple-to-use cladding estimating software saves you an awful lot of time for not a lot of money.
