Xactware Adds Sketch Technology to Latest Version of XactScope

XactScope, a mobile estimating app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, now includes Xactware’s Sketch technology. With the addition of Sketch, XactScope offers users a complete loss-site estimating tool that can help them draw floor plans, add items to estimates, download price lists, and generate reports.

The new version of XactScope is used in tandem with the recently released Xactimate 27.5 Professional desktop estimating system. XactScope and Xactimate can exchange estimates, sketches, price lists, and loss-site information, such as photos, notes, and voice memos.

Using a touch screen, estimators can sketch rooms, stairs, roofs, and other structural features. Users can touch and drag to resize rooms or walls; enter openings, doors, and windows; attach rooms, roofs, and dormers; add fences, decks, and much more. To enter items into an estimate, estimators have access to intuitive search functions, such as tapping on an illustration to see a list of options.

“One of the most common questions I’ve heard since the inaugural release of XactScope is, ‘When are we going to be able to draw floor and roof plans on an iPad?’” says Jeffrey C. Taylor, Xactware’s assistant vice president for Xactimate. “XactScope not only delivers a powerful Sketch tool, but it also includes other important upgrades, such as improved price list access and reports, that make it a more efficient and robust mobile estimating tool.”

XactScope is now available from the App Store . Xactimate Professional users can activate the app at no additional cost for use with their Xactimate 27.5 Professional system.
