Takeoff Annocement

OMAHA, Neb. (Aug. 31, 2022) — Buildertrend, the leading construction management software for residential contractors, proudly announced a new feature, Buildertrend Takeoff, in a live virtual event.

Takeoff software is a digital estimating solution that helps construction professionals efficiently calculate material needs and costs. Today, the company announced the solution as part of Buildertrend NEXT, an online event highlighting the latest updates to the platform.  

This highly requested tool allows builders to plan and budget their projects within one cohesive platform, making it easy to upload digital blueprints, record measurements and create accurate estimates faster than ever.  

“Buildertrend Takeoff will modernize preconstruction practices by replacing paper calculations and enable greater accuracy in material estimates,” said Andrew Wirick, Buildertrend’s senior vice president of Product. “Our builders will be able to have higher confidence in their estimates, win more bids, increase productivity and ultimately earn more throughout a job’s lifecycle.”

Takeoff software is part of a wave of Buildertrend product updates in the last year to improve pre-planning. These new capabilities include:

  • Refreshed invoicing and estimating experiences for a new, easier workflow
  • Offline capabilities for remote worksites to keep information up-to-date and accurate
  • A new global search feature so teams can quickly find what they need

“For a long time, creating takeoffs and planning projects have required multiple solutions or programs. By adding these features to Buildertrend, our customers can rely on one platform to get the job done,” said Scott Siegert, chief operating officer at Buildertrend.

Takeoff, along with the other platform improvements, were highlighted at Buildertrend NEXT. This virtual event, held on Aug. 31 at 1 p.m. CT, gave builders an exclusive opportunity to see takeoff in action, hear from the company’s leadership and get a front row seat to the latest advancements in construction management.

“With supply shortages and rising costs, this evolution could not come at a better time,” continued Siegert. “For a competitive advantage amid the current environment, builders need ease and efficiency. With the growth and progression of Buildertrend, we’re able to provide more innovative solutions to move into the future of construction technology.”
