Lumberyards and building suppliers looking to spend more time selling and less time estimating projects can take advantage of a new automated material takeoff service from Paradigm, a software company specializing in configuration, visualization, and quoting technology for the building industry.
Paradigm Estimate™ construction takeoff service automatically examines blueprints and generates a detailed material takeoff list.
Backed by more than 50,000 successful takeoffs, “this new service is faster and more accurate than conventional takeoff methods, which helps make bids more competitive and lumberyards more profitable,” according to Debbie Summerville, Paradigm Estimate Product Owner.
“Yard managers, estimators, and salespeople will appreciate the speed, efficiency, and convenience of Paradigm Estimate,” Summerville explains. “Each takeoff features the type, size, quantity, and application of construction materials required for a more accurate bid. It streamlines their workflow and allows them to do more and do it faster, from first bid to final quote.”
Paradigm Estimate offers three specialized takeoff packages. The Exterior Package includes items such as siding, roofing, and other exterior materials. The Interior Package covers interior doors, trim, and stairs, among other elements. Materials such as floor and ceiling joists, headers, and beams are part of the Framing Package.
Flexible pay-as-you go options are also available.
