    I use my profits unlimited quite a bit. I bought the whole package for lawn and snow on CD. It is quite useful and Wayne is a great guy. I have been to a couple of his seminars and would highly recomend

    That Planswift product looks pretty cool, esp for takeoffs for large commercial landscape projects. Will have to look further into it tomorrow Thanks for the link-nice find.

    Honestly I didn't even look at it. It was an ad on the side of this page so I just linked it :nod:

    I really never thought I needed software for bidding. If I have to measure everything out anyway to plug it into the computer I might as well do my own math.

    It appears to make easy work of doing takeoffs manually.

    A takeoff is when you manually calculate areas, distance, quantitites etc off a drawing prepared by a landscape architect. This software does it for you very quickly and in a very organized manner. A huge time saver when preparing estimates.

    I was at the open house on that Saturday. Didn't stick around for lunch though, had to get going. Did price a plow and salter there last week though. His speach was good, but a little long for me
