Eliminating paper drawings is good for the environment and smart for your business. Saving the cost of paper reproduction alone will pay for the benefit of SureCount—and then there’s the increase in productivity. SureCount will dramatically improve the way you estimate and increase your ability to takeoff more projects in less time.
Symbols can be counted manually or by using SureCount’s patented autocount feature. SureCount is the only solution that will automatically count all symbol types simultaneously. This saves you significant valuable time in the overall estimating process.
SureCount makes takeoffs extremely easy. First, quickly calibrate drawings to verify the scale. Measurements can be set up and listed by system. Measuring is simple – you just point and click between pathways and SureCount draws the line in the color and style chosen with each segment and total lengths displayed. It’s easy to lay out branch or feeder runs with elbows and boxes, as well as vertical rises or drops on the drawing or between floors.
Separate areas on a drawing, such as two halves of a floor or an area with unique installation factors, for counts and measurements within the designated area for project requirements, such as itemized pricing or alternate pricing.
Addenda and project changes create revised drawings. Those changes are quickly and easily identified with SureCount’s Overlay feature that displays new items in green and items that were deleted from the original drawing in red.
Direct takeoff from SureCount to IntelliBid improves accuracy while saving you valuable takeoff time. Estimating tasks such as assigning material and labor can now be done during takeoff in SureCount. The organization of drawings and phases is also synchronized with IntelliBid. This gives you an optimized workflow when organizing the project by phases, device types or other categories.
