ProEst Estimating Software Unveils Newest Release of its On-Screen ProEst Takeoff Software to Rave Reviews at Recent Industry Trade Shows

Tighter integration with Microsoft Excel and exclusive MagniPoint technology set ProEst Takeoff 12 apart from other industry takeoff tools.

SAN DIEGO, Calif., April 15, 2008: ProEst Estimating Software, a leading provider of construction estimating and takeoff technology, unveiled the newest release of its on-screen ProEst Takeoff Software at several recent trade shows. ProEst Takeoff version 12 was a big hit with booth visitors, who were impressed by the systems simplicity and its powerful ability to easily takeoff jobs of any size.
Both prospective customers and current clients marveled at ProEst Takeoffs new MagniPoint technology, which allows users to easily magnify and pick a point for measurement without zooming in or out of a blueprint. This exclusive time-saving feature expedites the takeoff process by reducing the number of steps needed to select measurements for a takeoff.

ProEst Takeoff now supports the use of multi-page blueprints in PDF format. This allows the user to quickly select a single page from an entire file, which eliminates the need to separate a PDF ahead of time in order to identify the specific blueprint sheet needed for a takeoff.

ProEst Takeoffs integration with Microsoft Excel, which is now tighter than ever, was also a high point with those who stopped by for a quick demonstration. Although ProEst estimating software and ProEst Takeoff have integrated with Microsoft Office products for quite some time, this enhanced integration promises to deliver even greater time-saving benefits to users.

Other key features of ProEst Takeoff version 12 that were demonstrated at the trade shows include:
- Multi-page support of blueprints in PDF format
- The time-saving ability to view two plans at one time
- A new auto-load function to import multiple images at one time
- An auto-fill function to quickly add layer and sheet descriptions

ProEst Takeoff 12 received great reviews from all of our booth visitors, who confirmed that our integration with Microsoft Excel and the new MagniPoint technology have really set us apart from the other takeoff tools on the market, said Jeffrey Gerardi, president of ProEst Estimating. In fact, as a direct result of our trade show demonstrations, we have added a number of new ProEst clients, from Costa Rica to Canada.

ProEst Takeoff 12 was demonstrated at the World of Concrete, International Builders Show, International Roofing Expo and Conexpo-Con/Agg. Contractors that would like to schedule a demonstration of ProEst Takeoff are invited to contact ProEst by phone at 800-255-7407 or by e-mail at
