Switching from manual to digital takeoff can be a valuable investment, but many are put off by the upfront cost of estimating software.
If you believe that you stand to benefit from a digital upgrade but are unwilling to take a risk on an outright purchase, software rental might be the best option for your circumstance.
For this month’s blog post, we’ve offered three key reasons why renting eMeasure is an ideal starting point for estimators transitioning to digital takeoff.
You Can Easily Calculate Your Return on Investment
A primary consideration for anyone looking at new software is value-for-money. Renting software eliminates several of the risk factors associated with buying a new platform outright.
Business projections don’t always play out exactly as anticipated, and many businesses experience sudden downturns in activity due to market changes or other factors. If you are a business owner working out your budget, it is good to know exactly how much you will be spending on software solutions every month.
Once you have a clear figure in mind for how much your software will cost you, it’s easy to determine the ROI of your investment. The speed, efficiency and accuracy improvements offered by affordable software such as eMeasure can save your business much more than you anticipated.
A Simple Learning Curve for Digital Beginners
Many long-term estimators who are still persevering with manual takeoff might see the switch to digital methods as too difficult. A lack of computer literacy is often given as a primary reason why estimators are still sticking with older techniques.
eMeasure is designed to be accessible to new and experienced software users, with extensive instructional videos available to guide users through the finer points of the software. A variety of other resources including sample files are available to help users improve their takeoff efficiency as quickly as possible.
You Can Cancel at Any Time
Nobody wants to make an outright purchase without being certain that they are investing in the right product. eMeasure takes the risk out of your digital software purchase by offering a fixed monthly fee, which includes free maintenance and email support.
Renting software also protects you in case the number of licences you require changes over the course of a year. You don’t want to be paying for a software platform that is unused on your computer for several months. On the other hand, takeoff software rentals can be a fantastic option to assist business owners with a major project. For example, a small business contractor who is tasked with a major home renovation might organize a short-term software rental to speed up their planning.
