Pros

Our company uses this program for pushing drawings to subs while in the field. We also use this for our punch lists at the end of projects. This allows us to stay organized, on top of hot items, and execute successfully for project turnover.

Cons

I have noticed that sometimes it can take awhile to upload large file drawings for large projects. Our companies fix was to increase internet download speed so this was fixed with that. Make sure to have a great internet connection.

Excellent price point as well makes for a very cost effective solution to keeping all team members and project staff uodsted and always on same page so to speak, when it comes to work progress

Pros

Always updated and always available project drawings, accessibility also through apps makes for much simpler workflow and cross team communication

Cons

None so far, aside from a few instances where cad files would not be openable, but that was not as a result of the software.

Pros

PlanGrid is an awesome tool for quick takeoffs. The takeoff feature is especially good for guys using tablets in the field.

PlanGrid allows for batch uploads of construction documents, however the automatic hyperlink function isn't as good as some of its competitors.

I really like the fact that when you post revised plans you also have the older version to reference if needed.

Cons

I do not like the fact that you have to create a new version of revised plans when you post them. I would like to just drag and drop and be done.

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)

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.

Overall it is a great software.
The sales team and training team are great and professional.
The software engineers (Coders) don't follow up and it takes them forever to correct any issues with the software.
It almost seems like my voice is not being heard as many of my suggestions are to fix glitches in their software.

Pros

PlanGrid is a great software to keep your Plans and Documents organized.
Since implementing PlanGrid, we have had more clarity as to which set of plans are current, where we are with Submittals and RFI's, as well as many other items.
It is an amazing tool for field use and our superintendents have been able to learn quickly.

Cons

Many of the features are new, like RFI's, Daily Reports, Photos, and Submittals.
Because they are so new, there are a number of glitches.
When adding Pictures through the Photos tab or even in Daily Reports, they automatically re-orient themselves to end up sideways or upside down. Unfortunately once they are in, you cannot re-orient them properly.
Submittals could use a little work on organization.
We have had some complications on syncing when using tablets in the field, causing a loss of Daily Reports.
There seems to be a lack of consistency between the iOS, Android App, Windows App, and Web Based Version that should be addressed.
Workspaces has a lot of glitches, like you cannot delete or edit a file in documents, unless you are in the Windows App, then you can delete but not edit.
