Comments: Tried a few different tele/data takeoff software's before settling on SureCount. We are using SureCount primarily to do take off counts. They offer Intellibid - a more detail bidding software to build out specifics in a bid take off - we are currently not using. The product works really great for us. After the takeoffs are done we send them to our printer to have full color prints made which are very clean and easy to read. We can export the counts to excel and link them to our own bidding excel bidding system. We were impressed with the Sure Count folks out of the gate - they had videos showing the different features making it easy to understand & support team is EXCELLENT. I would highly recommend this product and the company behind it is small, personable and knowledgeable.

Pros: Easy to learn Easy to use Excellent Support Saves lots of man hours doing manual take offs

Cons: Printing is color is expensive!

Recommendations to other buyers: Our business is tele /data wiring & build out of telecom rooms. We love the software. The time it takes to do take offs is a quarter of the time compared to manual take offs. More accurate & software does the math.

Comments: We currently use the SureCount Software and it works pretty well for our applications. We are a low voltage contractor and we use it for most of our takeoffs, which saves us on labor and material (paper) costs. The program is generally geared towards electrical contractors and there are a few things that I would add that would be useful such as j-hook runs and cable tray (pathways). Currently we use the branch or feeder measurements for this and divide our total number by 4 since our cabling is generally supported every 4 feet. We also have to manually calculate the size of the cable path based on the number of cables using each path. Also, one thing that would be useful is the ability to make minor changes to the drawings and import shapes or picture files to create quick shop drawings etc. Customer service has been very helpful when I have questions about the software.
