MASON, OH--(Marketwired - Dec 5, 2013) - Cloud Takeoff, a Mason, Ohio startup that's developed a powerful, cloud-based solution for estimating and sharing digital blueprints, is connecting with commercial contractors on the other side of the globe. Cloud Takeoff has entered into a collaboration with simPRO Software, an Australian company that provides job management software to trade contractors.
simPRO has tens of thousands of customers across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Their project management software helps contractors control and integrate estimating, purchasing, scheduling and many other facets of a project, improving productivity and profitability.
Cloud Takeoff offers simPRO users a way to measure and work with digital blueprint and plan files. With a special version of Cloud Takeoff built for Enterprise, users can import their digital plan files, measure distances and areas, and then instantly integrate those calculations into their estimate in the form of stock item or assembly quantities from the Enterprise catalog.
"This seemingly simple process can have a huge impact on businesses' productivity by saving many hours per project in manual takeoffs and then manual quotes," said simPRO Software Group CEO Brad Couper. "We are very excited to be working with Phil and the team at Cloud Takeoff because they fundamentally understand our clients' needs."
"We are excited to offer a solution for simPRO Enterprise users who desire to speed up the plan takeoff process and perform quantity surveys with their Enterprise data, inside of our Cloud Takeoff application," said Cloud Takeoff co-founder and CEO Phillip Ogilby. "This integration with simPRO Enterprise represents the first of many that we have planned for the future."
