    Overall the product is great but is limited to a specific set of functions. Overall this works great with PM’s in the field.

    Pros

    Easy to use for marking up plans and also the App makes it nice for viewing in the field. Adding shortcuts to specs is very nice also and something we use allot.

    Cons

    Minimal measurement tools. However we have a full blown online Takeoff and estimating system for that.

    Pros

    The feature that I liked most about PlanGrid is the ability to update construction documents when design updates have been issued. It allows you to store and update all of your construction documents all in one place.

    Cons

    The con that I have with PlanGrid is the product is not as intuitive as it seems. To update documents you need to go on the website rather than update straight through the app.

    Scaling plans made easy and it makes it easier for the less experienced staff to comprehend things you are trying to make them understand.

    Pros

    Easy to work the plans and mark up. Makes it easy to communicate changes.

    Cons

    Can't think of any thing at the moment.

    This software is excellent if there is someone updating plans constantly.

    PlanGrid has helped me so much, I feel like can no longer properly manage a job if I don't have it on planGrid.

    Pros

    facilitates sharing info with foremen and subcontractors

    Cons

    Some features are exclusive to the web app while other features are exclusive to Windows or iOS native apps The gap is slowly closing in, however.

    Pros

    It provides real time file updates and reduces the paperwork required. It also is a collaborative platform on which multiple companies can work on and share data and information regarding construction works. This also lets to access the information such as drawing and photos from any mobile device, anywhere. The features can be used offline as well. This tool can be depended on regardless of the size of the project, which makes it highly versatile. The application also makes sure that no data is lost during a turnover, we have all revised drawings made on a project. The application maintains security measures and procedures at every level, as the work progresses. It has helped us to compare various versions of the same project.

    Cons

    This software has no integration with any database software, so there is not option to control who can view what, which is a data security risk issue. The windows version of the application does not have as many features as compared to the version available on iPads. Cost to share data with team members is high.

    Overall it is very useful and the ease of use makes it a very useful tool in the field.

    Pros

    PlanGrid is easy to use and fairly intuitive. The swipe feature to move to the next drawing is very useful and helps speed up the process of finding drawings.

    Cons

    I have not found a way to auto update drawings when the app is not in use. Some projects have multiple bid packages and there needs to be a way to separate different drawing sets from one another

    Pros

    It has both Android and iPhone versions. The presence of zoom options on several scales helps to have a clearer view of the site images. The support team is very responsive and helpful. Any query put forward is solved by them efficiently. It helps to keep all your RFIs, drawings etc. in one single spot and need not carry them around in the field. It supports English, Japanese and Spanish.

    Cons

    It is very expensive. It is not affordable for small agencies and startups. Also, most of the features are scattered around and hence, browsing through all of them is not so easy.

    Pros

    I am in love with the digital takeoff tools, and the punch list feature.

    Digital takeoffs are a breeze, I do not remember the last time I estimated materials using paper blueprints. It is quick, reliable and super easy to use. This has probably cut down the amount of time required to estimate a project by at least 50%. A must have if your company wants to do any kind of volume.

    Cons

    The licensing can be a bit pricey. But in our experience, it is well worth it. Even with the price tag, I would not hesitate to recommend this product.

    Sharing of information between team members.

    Pros

    I like that I can markup drawings and return to it and remember all my thoughts about the drawing. I can then share these notes with all team members so that they can be involved in the design process/changes.

    Cons

    When you PDF the comments you lose sight of the overall picture. You cannot interact with the document further. The snippet of the drawing is zoomed out of scale.

    Cons

    Limitted number of sheets- of course if you are dealing with multiple active projects you will need to pay for extra sheets or remove old revisions on the server
