QuickMeasure OS

Built for Microsoft Excel

QuickMeasure OS is the staple takeoff program you've been looking for. With QuickMeasure OS, all of your takeoffs are completed from your computer screen with pinpoint accuracy and intuitive tools. QuickMeasure OS is compatible with Microsoft Excel.


The creator of QuickMeasure OS

After years of marketing digitizer based paper plan takeoff software, Tally Systems created QuickMeasure OS, a software application designed specifically for measuring lengths, areas, segments and counts from PDF drawings. QuickMeasure OS uses the mouse on your computer to measure directly from PDF drawings. QuickMeasure OS eliminates the need to print PDF files to paper saving the contractor thousands of dollars in reproduction costs. Plus the time and effort taken to drive all over town to pick-up drawings.


What makes QuickMeasure OS unique is its seamless tie-in to Microsoft Excel. When QuickMeasure OS is installed, it adds 4 measuring icons to the Excel toolbar allowing the construction estimator to populate their spreadsheet with takeoffs generated directly from a PDF plan.

When the quantities are sent back to the Excel spreadsheet, QuickMeasure OS also sends back a link to the takeoff image. Every quantity in Excel is linked to the PDF and the line style used for each takeoff.

Why is storing that takeoff image in the Excel spreadsheet so important?

Imagine an estimator who completes 2 or 3 takeoffs per week. To recall how a quantity was generated is next to impossible. With QuickMeasure OS if you want to see how a quantity is generated, all you need to do is click on the cell and then click on the QuickMeasure OS View icon to see the takeoff overlaying the original PDF drawing. It is a visual audit trail for every quantity stored in Microsoft Excel.

If the estimator stores the Excel spreadsheet on a server, other users with QuickMeasure OS installed (without the license dongle) can open the spreadsheet and view the takeoff images without having to purchase a license of the software. This allows everyone in the office to share information and ward off conflicts that commonly occur during the lifespan of a project.

The technology within the QuickMeasure OS software opens the door for contractors who are looking for a PDF plan takeoff application that adds measuring functionality to Microsoft Excel and allows them to populate their spreadsheet with digital plan takeoff quantities.

QuickMeasure OS is capable of serving all contractors large and small.


QuickMeasure OS is compatible with all of the widely used digital plan files including: PDF, TIF, DWG, DXF, DWF, CPC, BMP, GIF, PNG, WMF, and EMF.
