What a great company and software

Reviewed on 2020-02-17

Perfect.

Perfect.

Pros

I called today for support. I spoke to the original person who designed the software in 2014. I found out I was one of the first 20 customers to purchase it in the United States.
I cannot tell you how happy I have been with this software and the customer service. Incredible.

Cons

Nothing it works great once you build your formulas.

My overall experience has been great. I was using another take off software and Active Takeoff is far better. I enjoy using this software and if I ever have a question the support team is spot on. Very pleased.

Pros

Wish they had curve points and auto counter

Good program. Needs a few minor Adjustments

Thus far, it’s been adequate. I can’t use it for some of my Plans, which defeats the purpose.

Pros

The Software is pretty easy to use. The reports are great for keeping tabs on several different

Cons

The scale needs to be a little more inclusive. I find several Plans with a 3”-1’ scale and Active Takeoff does not offer that option. Manual adjustments are fine, but often times there are not any good measurements provided to set that scale.

If they was to fix the above problems and implement suggested updates then I would give this product 10 out of 10.

Pros

Easy to understand layout. Reasonable Price.

Cons

No Auto save so lose work unless you manually save all the time. Issues with memory, have to close other programs to make it function properly sometimes.
