PlanSwift is a highly popular takeoff-program that reads drawings in PDF or other formats.  It’s intuitive point and click, drag and drop architecture makes it easy to takeoff simple or complex areas, items, length, volumes, and perimeters quickly and accurately.  The Rapid Estimator integration takes Plan Swift’s built-in estimating functionality to another level by integrating the Craftsman Databases cost codes within PlanSwift

To bring your PlanSwift estimate list into Rapid Estimator, simply open PlanSwift to the document you want to import, then click on the PlanSwift icon on the Links ribbon in Rapid Estimator.  The import wizard automatically retrieves the estimate list cost codes and quantities from PlanSwift, matches the cost codes to the current costs and transfers the items into the open estimate.
