Overall Satisfaction with PlanGrid

Contacting customer service is very easy and quick. Getting sales and implementation to get the ball rolling seemed to drag on a bit.
We currently use PlanGrid to connect our office to the field. Our project managers setup projects in PlanGrid that then our site supervisors and foreman can then get the most up to date plans and information about the project. It helps us point out issues that then can get handled quickly from the office and then prevents delays of production in the field.
  • Very easy to use, and training takes less than a few hours for field staff.
  • Connects office to field quickly and efficiently.
  • Uploading , naming, and tagging sheet is the best in the business.
  • Sheet and document manager always display most current information and also gives you the ability to look back at previous versions for changes.
  • Their sheet system by user could use some revisions. Their plans only allow a certain number of sheets per user.
  • Pricing
  • Customer service and local sales reps could be more responsive.
  • Saving time getting plans to the field
  • Saving paper
  • Improved coordination and communication
PlanGrid is an easier system to use then Procore; however, Procore offers more of a full management software than PlanGrid does with plan distribution.
We work in construction and PlanGrid is well suited to connect our office and field staff with the most up to date plans and specs. We can also attach documents to the project for the foreman to track labor, products, and product data sheets. Our site supervisors and foreman can fill out a number of daily forms on site with ease that can be sent into the office for review. Lastly, general contractors can invite subcontractors to collaborate on projects, and they can place punchlist items and take photos of the items that need to be fixed. Subcontractors then can mark the items pending for review for the GCs to then mark complete.
