BizPortz Construction Take-Off and Estimating Software allows you to quickly design a complete building. Specify the size of your building, then select color, siding, wainscot, roofing, trim and other options. Add windows, doors, cupolas and other accoutrements with ease. In just a few minutes, you can render a 3-D image of the building, and walk your customer around and through it for a "virtual tour." Price is automatically calculated, and automatically updated as you make changes. The software automatically produces shop drawings, building plans and material lists. Use it right before your customer's eyes as a powerful sales tool. Easily change details per the customer's directions and they will take ownership of the project. Create a beautiful quote using snapshots of the building for your customer to have without giving them plans or other details that could be passed along to a less design-saavy builder to copy and undercut your price. Available in four versions for various building types: Post-Frame Manager, Steel-Frame Manager, Stud-Frame Manager and SIP-Frame Manager - plus new versions for roofing and wooden decks!
PostFrame Manager is not only the easiest to use and best software for post-frame "pole buildings" - it's also way less expensive than other software. Use the link above to request a free trial version, which does the same basic things other post-frame estimating software does; but features other estimating programs don't offer - such as multiple wings, multiple stories, lean-tos, interior walls, advanced reports, etc. - are disabled. Try out the free demo version and you'll see how it's also a lot easier to use than other programs. If you like what you see, you can start using PostFrame Manager for as little as $450 - less than business software like MS Office. If you sell buildings, PostFrame Manager is a smart business investment that will impress your customers, save you time, and close more sales.
