Story:

Joe Contractor uses the 9-5 takeoff to estimate every job that his bids. The number of takeoffs in the system is causing it to run slower. It takes much longer to run reports and print.

Process:

This app allows you to archive old 9-5 Takeoff records that are no longer in use. This includes jobs that have been refused, completed and closed or bids that have not been edited for a specific amount of time.

Return on Investment:

The system's speed is back to normal now and an archived takeoff can always be reimported if Joe needs it.
