New Electronic Takeoff Offering Helps Companies Produce Faster, More
Accurate Estimates and Minimize Takeoff Errors 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/06/13 --   Sage North America today
announced that it is partnering with eTakeoff to provide estimators
with a new collection of electronic takeoff products within the Sage
portfolio of estimating solutions. eTakeoff can be used as a
stand-alone solution, the first step to automating the estimating
process or along with Sage Estimating to further improve bidding
"We are excited to add eTakeoff to our portfolio of electronic
takeoff solutions," said Jon Witty, vice president and general
manager of Sage Construction and Real Estate. "This partnership
enables us to provide our customers with a full array of
best-of-breed solutions to increase their takeoff productivity and
their bid confidence." 
The eTakeoff collection of electronic takeoff products offers
estimators a cost-effective way to get started with electronic
takeoff capability and, when ready, to adopt more advanced takeoff
capabilities by upgrading to a fuller takeoff solution.  
"We are pleased to partner with Sage to bring estimators a family of
products to meet all of their electronic takeoff needs," said Curtis
Peltz, CEO of eTakeoff. "Moving between eTakeoff solutions is easy
and minimizes disruption and the need to learn new software as
companies further improve their estimating and bidding processes."  
Companies can mix and match the use of eTakeoff Advanced and eTakeoff
Premier software among their estimating staff dependent on the
specific roles of its team members, offering further flexibility to
match the offering to a company's specific workflow needs. Sage and
eTakeoff will also develop integration between eTakeoff and Sage
Estimating in the first half of 2014 to further increase the
estimating efficiency of companies using both solutions.  
Recognized for its solidity and innovation, eTakeoff has been
selected by McGraw Hill for use in its Dodge Construction online plan
room. To learn more about eTakeoff and download a free version of the
