STACK Beats Planswift!

Before STACK, our company used PlanSwift. The ease of use and setup makes STACK’s cloud based system great for not only one, but many users. I’m surprised we hadn’t switched before.

Brush Strokes Quality Painting

By far the best estimating and takeoff software

I purchased PlanSwift and had nothing but problems. Switched to STACK and it exceeded all expectations. I have been in the painting industry for 20+ years and this is my new go-to. Training and customer service are as good as the product. Great people and great software.
