For Mac lovers everywhere, STACK has a solution for you!
You love your Mac. Owning a Mac is a thing of pride, maybe even an obsession. You probably once fell asleep with your favorite toys but now you fall asleep with your MacBook! Don’t worry, we get it! You rely on your Apple device to get you through the day, from the time you wake up until you fall asleep – we’re not here to judge, we’re here to help.
As a proud Mac user, you’ve probably discovered that not all construction software, such as Planswift, On-center, and Bluebeam, are compatible or designed to work with your operating system. This can be frustrating for someone in the construction industry, that uses a variety of tools from the office to the job site. If you’re worried about having to switch to a PC, put your mind at ease! STACK’s takeoff and estimating software is entirely Mac compatible.
While other solutions may require you to download other connectors such as a remote desktop to work on your Mac device, STACK works with your native Mac OS. In fact, because STACK is cloud-based, it’s compatible with any device that can access and load a web-browser. From Linux, Ubuntu, Windows, Mac, and more, STACK has you covered!
Uses of technology in construction
With more and more companies looking to technology to improve their productivity overall, it’s worth noting that moving to software isn’t always a simple transition. In the age of technology, companies are looking for products they can trust that are also easy-to-use. This is creating a trend of introducing the devices we use every day in our personal lives – devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers – and including them as part of our project workflows. It should go without saying, but when you’re already familiar with an operating system, it’s a lot easier to adapt and succeed at using a new tool.
With STACK, you get the best construction estimating software available that’s accessible on any device.
How to manage your devices
Once you’ve committed to adding a new software solution to your work process, you may start to get overwhelmed thinking about the amount of effort it is going to take to set up each device, get all the apps downloaded, manage licenses, and figure out how you are going to help your team when they need support. This is where being cloud-based comes in handy!
STACK empowers users to quickly set up an account and get started on a project right away, allowing you to enable your entire team and scale with your company’s growth. With a team scattered on different sites that need to collaborate with others in the office, accomplishing this is as simple as adding a new user to your existing account.
In addition, being a cloud-based takeoff and estimating software, STACK lets you take advantage of new features and enhancements that our developers build as soon as they launch. In contrast, with desktop-based software, customers are not able to use these new features unless they pay for a new version of the software and then manually install the updates. STACK also offers a slew of resources to help Mac users to enjoy a seamless experience. The robust knowledge base includes helpful articles on topics from hotkey shortcuts and best practices for plan organization, to preparing a professional cost estimate for bid submissions.
The STACK team understands that we all have our personal preferences, so we’ve created a solution that’s easy to use on any device. No matter the trade focus, our solution allows you to spend less time on estimating or bid preparation and more time growing your business. We know that preconstruction processes can sometimes be complicated and time-consuming but using software doesn’t have to be.
