The Top Reasons Why Companies Use
CubiCasa instead of SmartDraw

Reason #1

No need to draw or be an expert in creating floor plans

SmartDraw is a DIY tool where you will have to create the floor plan from scratch and plan or redraw the layout. It might be a handful for architects and floor plan professionals, but for real estate photographers, it takes longer to use a website for creating floor plans compared to quick floor plan apps.

The best part about CubiCasa is that you don’t need any prior experience or specific skills to be able to generate professional floor plans – just 5 minutes of your time. With a button on your mobile device and the right floor plan app, you can create beautiful digital floor plans as you walk and scan the interior space.

The CubiCasa 2D floor plan will be available in a variety of formats including JPG, PNG and SVG file formats following the RICS standard. In addition, you can easily edit the floor plan also with any vector graphics editor such as Adobe Illustrator.

Reason #2

No subscription, pay-as-you-go with free trial

SmartDraw pricing begins with $119.4 yearly subscription for one person and they offer a discounted price per user for teams of 5 or larger. While subscription could be convenient for some users, for new users who might need the service rarely it won’t be the best investment.

CubiCasa app provides cost-effective pricing with only $34.90 per scan or $24.90 per scan for certified photographers. Simple fixed pricing is one of the key reasons why CubiCasa users prefer to pay as they go rather than pay for a yearly subscription.

Reason #3

Easy-to-use, no need to use a computer for creating floor plans

With SmartDraw, you can create beautiful floor plans, but you will need to use your computer to create one.

The difference is that the CubiCasa floor plan app recognizes all spaces and labels everything for you – you just simply scan the property and your work is done. With SmartDraw, you will have to draft, plan and finalize everything. With 5-6 minutes of your time, CubiCasa will create a beautiful, customizable, and professional floor plan with room dimensions and a GLA sketch.

You heard it right, with the CubiCasa app all you need is a mobile phone which you already have and a few minutes to scan the property. No need to spend time in front of the computer to create a floor plan. In other words, you have more time to focus on your core business!

"While in most programs you have to scan each room, click at each wall, add doors, windows and openings, etc. I love that CubiCasa does all of that for you in one single scan!"
