On-Screen Take Off

ConQuest has spent a significant amount of development time integrating the measuring tools into the core estimating module.

This ensures that work is not duplicated and time is not lost unnecessarily. Users no longer have to take off hundreds of measurements only to have to export them to excel and then re-enter them back into the estimating system.

As you take off from a drawing in ConQuest the measurements appear instantly in a specially designed window next to your Bill or Dim Pad. A quick click and they are in the job.
