Note: The Cordell Tab is available for Australia and New Zealand.
The Cordell Tab allows you to do QUANTITY TAKE-OFF ONLY from your construction plan a lot faster. Reduce the time spent using calculators or spreadsheets. The Cordell Tab will gain all your quantities to speed up your estimating by adding take-off quantities to Estimator Platinum (take-off quantities = for example, how long a wall is or how many sqm the floor contains.) The Cordell Tab's structure is in a format that will assist your estimating combined with Estimator Platinum's databases.
Tip: You can create work area folders in PlanSwift that match the Cordell Estimator work areas created.
