Digital Construction Costing with Planswift

Description

Do quantity takeoffs and construction project cost estimation consume your time? While it should be generating revenue for you? Are you estimating more work to get the same amount of work?  Do you need to be more efficient and faster in your quantity surveying tasks? Worry no more, this technology course is here to save you.

Planswift we train is intended to increase accuracy, save time, and profit in your construction projects. Start to generate quantity takeoffs in digital ways to win more work with competitive bids based on accurate estimates generated from integrated takeoffs and quantities and automatically.

We will strongly train you on how to create conceptual estimates for feasibility studies, resulting in a range of detailed estimates that help to win tenders and develop sound budgets. Budgeting, resource planning, time phasing, progress and performance measurement, earned value management, cost and schedule analysis, change management, risk tracking, money allocation, forecasting, and reporting are all required processes.

We train you on how to use technology to change and improve every operation. Professionals in quantity surveying and construction costing have been struggling with manual calculations and memorizing formulas while sitting at their office desks with a calculator, pen, and bulk of drawings. Are you one of them? 

Stop using traditional methods and start using technology that will allow you to perform like a master of your job in this modern economy. Traditional methods QSs have been using are insufficient to control, validate, or standardize any of the inputs or formula calculations within each estimate; a better, more accurate estimate is required. 

Start this training led by software certified trainer with unbeatable experience as a senior quantity surveyor. This course will teach you how to use Planswift to create outstanding Bills of Quantities, time-phased budgets, and forecasts, and measure project performance and productivity using cost, hour, and quantity control elements in the simplest way possible.
