Vendor comparison

PlanSwift: PlanSwift, a Textura Company, is the nation’s fastest growing developer and distributor of digital estimating and takeoff software for the construction industry. PlanSwift software is specifically designed for, but not limited to the construction industry. We have been positively impacting the construction software industry for the last 6 years, providing cutting edge tools utilized by contractors and estimators to easily and efficiently perform material takeoffs and estimate material quantities.

At PlanSwift, our customers are our driving force and we constantly strive to ensure our level of customer service is unparalleled in the industry.

STACK Construction Technologies: In the mid-1990s while working in the construction industry, my son Justin (then only 15) and I put together an estimating software program that we called Buildware Pro. Originally targeting the commercial roofing industry, Buildware Pro allowed you to measure paper plans using a digitizer, or even on your computer screen if you had a digital PDF or TIF file. We enjoyed success from the very beginning and by the time Justin was 17 we had sold 1/2 a million dollars' worth of our construction software! Measuring on screen led me to a new idea… one where GCs could distribute plans in digital form to their subs and suppliers, via the Internet. During the same time frame my friends Al and Tracy Battle had started the first ever "Internet Plan Room" and partnered with the AGC in Atlanta to distribute plans for public projects to subs and suppliers in that market. Al, Tracy and I put our companies together and iSqFt.com was born.

Pricing/cost comparison

The real cost of Construction software includes the software license, subscription fees, software training cost, customization cost, required hardware, and the cost of maintenance & support and other related services. It's critical that you account for all of these costs to gain an understanding of the system's "total cost of ownership". We prepared a total cost calculator for PlanSwift TCO and STACK Estimating total cost to help with the total cost of ownership calculation.

PlanSwift price Starting from $995 Per license , on a scale between 1 to 10 PlanSwift construction is rated 2, which is much lower than the average cost of Construction software. STACK Estimating price Starting from $999 Per license , when comparing STACK Estimating to their competitors, the software is rated 2 - much lower than the average Construction software cost.
