On-Screen Take-Off

(View Webpage)

I wanted to share some exciting news about TurboBid that I think will make your life a whole lot easier.

One of the standout features of TurboBid is the take-off screen. With this tool, you can quickly enter material quantities, saving you valuable time. But here's where it gets really interesting - you can break down the take-off by individual rooms or locations. Imagine the impression you'll make on your customers when you submit a quantity take-off report organized by room or location. It's like being a rock star in the construction industry!

Now, here's where TurboBid takes things up a notch. We've integrated with Planswift on-screen take-off software. This means you can measure lengths for conduits, wiring, and cables with incredible speed and accuracy. Plus, TurboBid effortlessly adds up the total number of switches, receptacles, light fixtures, and more.
