Sage ETakeoff

Takeoff Construction & Cost Estimating Software

Benefits of eTakeoff

  • Boost estimating capacity and numbers confidence.
  • Produce faster, more accurate estimates.
  • Cut printing costs and estimate review time.
  • Protect against miscommunication errors.
  • Get up and running quickly through easy-to-learn software and helpful training tools.

eTakeoff®, an electronic quantity takeoff product distributed by Sage, significantly increases accuracy, productivity, and speed over traditional paper or manual takeoff methods. Powerful yet easy to use, eTakeoff provides estimators sophisticated assembly capabilities, extensive Microsoft® Excel integration, and time-saving features like Pattern Search, an auto-count symbol search feature that quickly locates and quantifies multiple occurrences of symbols within digital plans, to greatly improve the takeoff process.

Why Choose eTakeoff

eTakeoff Integration with Sage

Save Money and Your Team’s Time

In addition to increasing your takeoff productivity, moving from paper to digital takeoff methods eliminates the hassle and cost of producing paper copies of plans during the bid phase. As a single copy of plans can cost hundreds of dollars to reproduce, you can quickly realize substantial cost savings when producing numerous bids. And digital plans allow for easy sharing and reviewing of all takeoff projects online rather than waiting for paper to circulate among your team.

Dramatically increase both your estimating capability and your confidence in the numbers you provide. With eTakeoff, you can:

Become up to 15 times more productive than when using paper or manual takeoff methods. Have more time to analyze estimates and take on additional bids without increasing staffing.

Measure to within a thousandth of an inch to take any guesstimates out of your bids. Easily highlight what you’ve already taken off to avoid potential mistakes and unforeseen project costs due to omissions.

Provide takeoff history to automatically back up what was (and was not) included in the scope of your estimate to limit the potential for, or quickly resolve, disputes down the line.

Easily compare new and previous drawings provided by architects to quickly see any changes that may or may not have been noted, preventing future issues that can impact a project or team relationships.

SnapAI – The Next Evolution in Electronic Takeoff

Estimators can cut takeoff time significantly and improve accuracy with SnapAI in eTakeoff Dimension Premier.

In the past, generic snap technology has enabled estimators to “snap to” points in a vector PDF, eliminating the need for an estimator to zoom into a drawing to find the most accurate corner or endpoint by hand. SnapAI takes this advancement even further by adding intelligence to vector takeoff by predicting what the estimator will do next and enabling point, logical line, and polyline selection for maximum flexibility.


    • AI capabilities “predict” what estimator will do next, accelerating point, line or polyline selection.
    • Creates faster takeoffs, cutting existing takeoff time nearly in half while improving accuracy.
    • Allows switching takeoff modes during a measurement, eliminating the need to start over if underlying vector data is incomplete.
    • Quickly traces building components by recognizing logical connecting lines.
