PlanGrid Review-

Overall the software is an amazing tool for Construction projects. The ability to manage one project in one space is unmatched.

Pros

The best things about the software are:
1) The ability to have unlimited sheets
2) The easy upload of new sheets and the accessibility of Revs 1/ 2/ 3, etc. with a simple swipe
3) Support team always fast and helpful
4) The ability to create issues and tag multiple linked accounts to the same issue
5) The ability to create reports from RFIs, Issues, logo upload etc. to PDF, Excel documents and how immersive the reports are, from the organization of the issues and photos (very professional)
6) The ability to upload documents and attach them where needed for example RFI's
7) All the editing tools for Mark-ups within sheets.
8) How easy to publish and unpublish content as Admin

Cons

The least favorite things about the software are:
1) All though the cross platform from Web/Mac/ Windows/ Mobile options are great, the experience of cross platforms are not consistent throughout. Some features are available on some platforms and not in others
2) Constant out of sync updating on Mobile/ Desktop versions
3) Different software bugs across platforms (but its understandable)

Widely used construction software

Sharing drawings and keeping track of the versions of construction drawings. Very useful for the people on site.

Pros

Sharing and collaborating feature. Team member can publish markups on the plan. When upload plans, it fetches the sheet number and sheet names correctly most of time.

Cons

The version comparison feature is not available for computer or laptop users yet, only for ipad users.

Daily PlanGrid Use

Most of my projects utilize PlanGrid. My whole teams uses PlanGrid for real time collaboration. I'd be much farther behind in document control if it weren't for PlanGrid.

Pros

As a subcontractor, access to the latest and greatest project documents in one place is by far the best feature on PlanGrid. The ability to easily refer back to previous iterations immensely help to find plan deviations.

Cons

Minor annoyance is the zoom feature only goes so far. Sometimes there is a need to zoom in at 400% or more.

PlanGrid Review

PlanGrid is a great tool for us as a General Contractor for field use.

Pros

The software is Intuitive and easy to work with.

Cons

We Would like to have the ability to invite others and have them download only the sheets that they need. for instance we have a project that has 3000+ sheets and several subcontractors and or employees only need 50-100 of those sheets.

Construction Technology

Pros

It is a very simple and easy software to use. Everything about it is user friendly. It can be downloaded on your ipad in the field so you can update the drawing whenever you want. One of the best features of this software is the ability to jump from the older versions to the current version at any time.

Cons

There is no cons that I can think of. It is a great software

Amazing software couldn’t live without it

You won’t be disappointed it’s worth every penny

Pros

Amazing software that allows you to track and as built work to a new level. Gone are the dark ages when we use to redline everything. I’ve only scratched the surface of this product in the last two years and every day I find something new that makes my life that much easier to perform my daily work and share with coworkers etc.

Cons

I haven’t found anything that I did not like about the product

Multiple resources available in on package

Compiled critical data all in one platform allows easy seamless access with up-date-ability for accuracy. Everybody has the same information. Mistakes are minimized with associated losses eliminated. Putting access on an iPad or Tablet makes the data field accessible to many more managers.

Pros

The ability to put plans specs and critical project data on one easily accessible platform. Flipping through separate plans spec binders, approved submittals, project progress photos is obsolete.

Cons

Our PlanGrid administer indicates that file accessibility is all or none. Project Financial data can not be posted and access selectively authorized. This is what I'm told.

Cons

I would like if it was easier to attach photos to RFI's

Benefits of the plan grid

Being able to see who is the architect,Engineer and all the most resent changes and RFI’s that affect my scope of work, I wish this technology was around back in the day when things were harder to receive the information that mattered . The thought of going paperless is the best thing we can do for our environment and businesses

Pros

No big rolls of unnessary blue prints like the old days , fast access to my sheets without shifting through at her trades that don’t pertain to my scope of work,all my RFI’s are within my reach without going through the regular process of retrieving them from the project manager or supervisors. Love the to be able to compare with the old version and see the new changes that affect my project

Cons

If I could only recidivism the pages that pertain to my project without using so much memory, plans that are 1000 pages and I only need 20

PlanGrid is Changing the Construction World

I highly recommend PlanGrid to anybody in the construction industry as it allows multiple people to collaborate together on a project and offers a method of viewing sheets at the easiest possible method.

Pros

The ease of viewing construction documents and the feature of seeing overlays of past sheets makes this a great tool as design is always changing.

Cons

I like their new feature of workspaces but I believe it still needs refinement on this feature as it limits the task assignments within each workspace.

The ease of use and the compare sheet tool. This has helped review plans accurately and quickly

PlanGrid Review

PlanGrid is amazing and saves me so much time. It is extremely convenient to have a full set of drawings with me everywhere I go whether on my iPad, phone, or PC

Pros

The software is easy to use. I really like the search feature and being able to search specific notes throughout the drawings. This helps so small items don’t get missed during construction.

Cons

Sometimes the links created automatically don’t work properly or take me to the wrong location.

Drawings Good, PM Software needs some work

Keeping accurate drawing logs is vital on any project, and this makes that task very easy. Overall satisfied with the experience thus far with PlanGrid.

Pros

The drawings are very easy to maintain updated document logs, and keep a history of a project as it goes from the design phase through various multiple revisions during construction. The photos functions is also very easy to use, and great for documentation of the progression of the project.

Cons

The project management software can use some work. The submittals and RFI logs can use some updating and added features. I also don't like that the architects and engineers need to pay for plangrid accounts to access the documents and RFIs. Is there a way to change that?
