Overall Satisfaction with PlanGrid

As of now PlanGrid is used by most all project teams. This program helps to ensure that project teams are always working from the most current set of project documents. It is also an alternative to conventional business software for issue and punch list tracking.
  • Project Drawings - upload new revisions to drawing sets and have them overlaid as the new current drawings. All the while you still have access to the previous versions.
  • Punchlist - Create, distribute and track issues from start to finish. Professional looking reports are a plus.
  • Attachments - Include sketches, submitals, specifications, RFI's etc. as attachments to drawings. You can hyperlink these attachments right from the drawings so you have access to all necessary project documents.
  • Attachments - If you have many attachments, they can get lost in the mix. PlanGrid is working on a new program to fix this.
  • Issues - If you have team members not using PlanGrid, you must first convert the issues to PDF and then e-mail them. I wish you could e-mail right from PG without the extra step.
  • Cost - Can get costly with multiple users. Should have enterprise discounts.
  • Project design changes are better communicated to the field employees. By having up to date drawings at all times, re-work due to out dated drawings is all but eliminated.
  • The punchlist phase has been streamlined and therefore is more efficient. Issues are tagged to specific points on the floor plan or elevation sheets. Photos are also easily added to better help identify the deficiencies.
  • We track ongoing QAQC with the issues log. This helps to ensure no deficiencies get lost during the course of the project.
In my opinion there are no other applications that come close to the overall impact that PlanGrid has. Reports are professional looking. Software is easy to use. Constant updating of bugs and new features by the design team. A positive outreach program for beta testing and feedback.
Well suited for any construction or design project.
