Sobre Countfire

Countfire es una verdadera solución de despegue automatizada para estimadores eléctricos que permite a los usuarios contar automáticamente los símbolos en múltiples dibujos en PDF. El algoritmo de coincidencia automática funciona en todos los dibujos y cantidades y se divide automáticamente en áreas. Las características incluyen mediciones lineales y de área, creación automática de hojas de cálculo de Excel e informes de precisión.

Los usuarios pueden arrastrar y soltar dibujos PDF directamente en la zona de colocación de archivos para crear un proyecto. Los proyectos se pueden dividir en disciplinas para agrupar todos los dibujos que tienen símbolos similares, por ejemplo, todos los dibujos de iluminación a la disciplina de "Iluminación" y todos los dibujos de potencia a una disciplina de "Potencia." Los usuarios pueden rotar dibujos y agregar títulos de dibujos para transferirlos a la hoja de cálculo de Excel. El motor de búsqueda ayuda a encontrar descripciones de símbolos y la herramienta de edición permite la eliminación de elementos innecesarios con un solo clic.

Una vez que se selecciona un símbolo en la pantalla, el algoritmo de conteo del software buscará automáticamente todos los símbolos similares en el dibujo actual y también contará todos los símbolos de aspecto similar en todos los demás dibujos que se hayan cargado en la misma disciplina. Además del conteo automático, Countfire también proporciona un conjunto de herramientas para contar símbolos manualmente. El uso de demarcaciones Countfire permite a los usuarios desglosar cantidades, generalmente de acuerdo con un programa de precios, que se incluye en su propia columna dentro de la hoja de cálculo final de Excel.

Countfire también permite a los usuarios calcular áreas de cobertura para verificar visualmente ciertos tipos de dispositivos, como PIR, detectores de humo, etc., para verificar si un sistema cumple con ciertos requisitos operativos o regulatorios.

Countfire - Pros and cond

Revisado el 19-11-2018

Excellent, the online support is fantastic, as is the software. There have been some containment drawings that I simply could not have lifted off with Pen and paper, but Countfire has made it possible and easy to review.

If in doubt do the trial on a big job and see how you get on!

Puntos a favor

Whats not to like? Not much. Its a fantastic tool for estimators, the more you use it the faster you get and the more confidence you gain.

Automatic counts - Brilliant
Manual Counts - When you cant use automatic counts this is still super fast compared to pen and paper
Measurements - Brilliant
Splits and multiples - essential and very helpfull

I have been using it for a year now and would recommend it to anyone involved in estimating or any other form of take offs.

Puntos en contra

Every now and again you get a bad drawing where all the symbols are slightly different and its a pain. Just use manual count and safe yourself a lot of frustration!

The cost is pretty high (but worth it in time saved) If I was self employed it could be out of price range.

Countfire 2 Year Review

Revisado el 29-11-2021

Puntos a favor

Central storage of all takeoff documents. No more boxes of rolled-up plans cluttering my office. I would typically fill 1-2 boxes every month, so it really has reduced clutter and the overall appearance of my office. It definitely saves money when you consider that you no longer have to plot jobs that you don't win. That is a lot of paper, toner, and wear on your plotter.

The software is very easy to use and you can be fully trained on all of the keyboard shortcuts and navigation in less than a week. After about 5 jobs, you will very confident that you aren't missing any devices during takeoff and will have your own workflow for getting a takeoff done.

The developers are constantly making improvements, adding features, bug fixes, and you get pretty routine feedback when one of your feature requests are considered or implemented.

Customer and Tech support is top-notch and very responsive, and everyone seems to be very well trained on the product. It is also a very small team, so you will typically be speaking (texting) with someone you're familiar with.

Puntos en contra

The software is 100% cloud-based, and from my early conversations with the sales team, is the heart of their mission and will never change. That alone is not a negative, however, I feel that some of the processing could (and should) be done on your local machine and then pushed to the cloud to create the "output package". Moving between pages of a PDF is not as fast as scrolling in your preferred PDF reader. It's not slow, but there is definitely a pause before you're ready to work on the next sheet. It seems they could have better control of the user interface if there was a PC-based client option.

If you need support, the time difference from Eastern US to the UK can sometimes be a challenge, but the support team is absolutely great and will respond back to you outside of their normal working hours, assuming they aren't sleeping.

All support is initially done through an in-app chat bot that will recommend that you go read articles based on your questions. I will admit that most of the time, the recommended articles DO contain your answers, but I personally just like to call and talk to someone. I realize this would put a strain on their resources though, so I rate this as a very small negative. I would rather support maintain their current level of quality than be burdened with phone calls over minor issues. If you do have a major issue or prefer to speak to someone, you can ask for a call and they will call you.

I found the customer support was second to none, there is a little chat box in the corner when you are doing take offs and if you are having any issues then you can talk on here and in my experience you get help normally within half an hour.
The first 2 drawings that were quite big the auto count feature didn't work and so I had to count manually and I had software already a lot cheaper that I could do that with.
When i had a drawing that worked, it worked well and saved a lot of time. But honestly the cost of this software you'd have to do a heck of a lot of estimating with drawings that work to make up for the huge cost.

Puntos a favor

The auto count feature when it works does save a lot of time. The customer support and training is excellent.

Puntos en contra

The cost is way too much. not all drawings work with the auto count feature.

Impressive Software.

Revisado el 30-05-2023

Puntos a favor

Ability to quickly turn around project quantities and transfer onto Excel for all to use and review.

Puntos en contra

difficulties using the product is when the drawing images are uploaded but each symbol has minor alterations. To the naked eye can't be picked up but the software will, therefore some symbols need multiple take offs done for same image.

Respuesta de Countfire

Wow, what a great review - thanks Ben!

It's great to hear that you're able to quickly turn around your projects.

You're spot on – sometimes symbols can look the same on your drawings but, when the drawings have been created, they have been drawn slightly differently. All you need to do to count all these symbols is make an additional selection. Countfire will then look for your selections across all of your drawings in the discipline.

If you do run into this, it's always worth popping our support team a message, they'll usually have some tips to help you get more matches from fewer selections.

Countfire Review - 11/08/2023

Revisado el 11-08-2023

Puntos a favor

I really enjoy the fact that it can save so much time! Once you highlight a symbol on one drawing, that symbol will automatically be highlighted on the next, it is such a time saver! It is also very easy to use! After a 1 hour training session, I was confident to get started!

Puntos en contra

As we specialise in fire alarms, it is often that we need to design fire alarm systems for buildings, and we also amend predesigned designs as they're not compliant. It would be great if you can add a feature that can remove a symbol, and replace it with something else. That way, we as a business could do the whole takeoff process for every system on countfire!

Respuesta de Countfire

Awesome review – thanks Alex!

It's great to hear you're saving so much time.

You're spot on – Countfire automatically looks for matches for your selections across all drawings in your discipline reducing the repetitive work involved with completing your takeoff manually.

Our support is something we're super proud of. As well as training sessions, which are always available not just when you first sign up, you can also access our live chat and help centre via the orange button in the bottom right hand corner of the app.

It would definitely be helpful to be able to make amendments to your drawings to make sure the design is compliant – I've added your vote to our feature request for the ability to "add your own custom count symbols" and created a new feature request for the "ability to remove symbols".
