Bidscreen XL

Electronic Quantity Take Off Software

BidScreen XL gives you the power to takeoff your electronic drawings directly in Microsoft Excel. Electronic drawing files supported include pdf (Acrobat recommended), dwg, dwf, tif, jpeg, bmp and others.

Takeoffs are a snap, just click on a spreadsheet cell and electronically measure and identify areas, lengths and counts from your electronic drawing files with your mouse. At the click of a button measurements are sent directly to your Excel spreadsheet, so no need to waste time with manual entries. The measurements and digitized takeoff drawings are saved directly within the Excel cell and can be edited and printed.

You can apply colours, count symbols, line styles and area fill patterns to your drawings. As well as being able to use your own Excel spreadsheets, sample estimating Excel template files for general contractors, concrete, roofing, painting and other trades are also included. BidScreen XL is simple, efficient and no additional hardware is needed. So, go electronic and make your takeoffs easy. Call today and see how Bidscreen XL can work for you.
