'PlanSwift 8.1' Has Set the New Standard in Construction Takeoff and Estimating Software

SALT LAKE CITY, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Tech Unlimited, Inc., a developer of software applications for the construction industry, announced today the release of PlanSwift 8.1, the most intuitive, easy-to-navigate construction takeoff and estimating program in the industry today. PlanSwift allows users to work on estimates, do takeoffs, manage and e-mail electronic blueprints in a multitude of formats, right from your computer.

"Whether we like it or not the construction industry is going digital and the days of doing bids off of paper plans are coming to an end," says James Purpura, VP of Tech Unlimited, Inc. "At PlanSwift, we have developed our software to save companies time and money; one person can do twice the work load in half the time with astounding accuracy. Because it is so affordable, less than $1000, PlanSwift can pay for itself with the very first bid."

Purpura added, "We have made our software so easy to use if you can take it off by hand you can do it with PlanSwift. The fact is that people do not have the time to learn complicated software, so we put everything we have into making takeoffs and estimating as simple as possible."

Purpura also notes that in a fraction of the time it would take to do it by hand PlanSwift users can calculate square footage, lineal footage, counts, volumes, pitch and angles in seconds with a few mouse clicks. You can then export your data using the included, preformatted reports or to an Excel spreadsheet with the click of a button. PlanSwift is designed from the ground up as a "platform" that can be easily built upon to create powerful integrations with other software applications.

PlanSwift users can also calculate the cost of labor and materials in seconds using fully customizable material and assembly libraries combined with PlanSwift's built-in Excel-like formulas.

Designers and architects will appreciate the program with features like the ability to e-mail an entire set of plans or screen shots right from the program. They also can include comparative overlays; by placing pages on top of one another you clearly see where additions and deductions were made to the plan with the automatic color coding. Other uses include locating bearing points, wall alignment and plan discrepancies. This powerful tool can graphically display multiple pages on top of each other in any color you choose.

PlanSwift can load scanned plans directly from the following file types: .TIF, .PDF, .DXF, .DWG (AutoCAD), .PLN (Dodge Plan), .JPG and others. The .TIF and .DWG file formats are the preferred file formats for use within PlanSwift.

An individual license of PlanSwift sells for $950. Multi-user discounts are available.

PlanSwift offers a free 14-day trial of the software to new users with 1 hour of 1-on-1 web training. The software can be downloaded at: http://www.planswift.com/requesttrial.
