About Countfire

Countfire is an automated takeoff software purpose-built for electrical estimators. The software is cloud-based and supports PC and Mac operating systems.

Countfire Features

  • True automatic counting: Similar symbols across all drawings within a project are automatically counted simultaneously.
  • Automatic quantity splitting: Quantities can be split according to your preferences, even after they have been counted. Last-minute revised pricing schedules no longer necessitate time-consuming recounts.
  • Auto count revised drawings: Spotting differences is unnecessary. New drawings can be uploaded, symbols copied over, and Countfire initiates counting immediately.
  • Increased accuracy: Checking a drawing and finding something missed is a thing of the past. Quality control reports allow for certainty that everything has been covered.


Countfire offers a 14-day free trial. There are three versions of Countfire: Mechanical, Electrical, and Architectural.
