Construction estimators perform takeoffs more quickly and easily using a Wacom pen directly onscreen which combines the simplicity of a pen with the benefits of a completely digital workflow.
Benefits for Digital Estimating
- Enjoy all of the advantages of a digital workflow while simulating a traditional paper experience
- Faster and more natural control of estimating software using a Wacom pen directly on an interactive pen display
- The pen makes identifying the target perimeter, measuring lengths, and calculating areas easy by simply tracing the boundary with the pen.
- Hand tracing with a pen is much quicker and more efficient than with a mouse
General, commercial, and residential contractors can quickly input and manipulate takeoff data using the pen on screen in a natural and easy way. Once plans are digitized and a scale reference is created, the pen can be used to trace critical dimensions and measure distances quickly and easily to generate accurate estimates.
