Overall Satisfaction with PlanGrid

The support is great and always very helpful. The problem is that the program doesn't do some of the desired functions
We use it for all aspects of our construction process. It is being used by our whole organization. It helps us get the information to all that need it faster and easier and allows us to collaborate together.
  • PlanGrid is great for updating drawings. In the fast-paced world we live in, and with drawings constantly changing, it is nice how the sheets are automatically updated and slip sheeted in.
  • It is very helpful at writing RFI's and tracking them. The ease of writing them and allowing others to see an answer is very helpful.
  • The picture log is great how all pictures taken to PlanGrid are stored even if they are deleted from a tablet.
  • The field reports need to be improved greatly. It is a very basic idea right now. Collaboration on the same report by other usernames would be great.
  • The fact that I can access my photo library when writing RFIs is very frustrating. You have to add pictures to PlanGrid and then add them to the RFI. Should be allowed access to photo library and add them while writing. The current process requires a lot of upfront work to be able to write and RFI.
  • Definitely saved paper. I haven't used a hard copy of drawings in almost 3 years.
  • Coordination is definitely better. All users can update and everyone sees the latest and greatest.
  • Changes are almost instantaneous. What used to take weeks is now done in minutes.
Procore is a web-based service and is very slow. While PlanGrid updates and is not web based it is much quicker. PlanGrid is also much easier to use.
The access to drawings is great. Being able to pack several different drawing to various jobs in my pocket on my phone or on my tablet is awesome.
