Overall Satisfaction with PlanGrid

PlanGird is used by our Project Management and Field Team to manage and publish drawings, documents, RFIs, and submittals. The company has a standard process to use for PlanGrid that is uniform throughout the company, and our subcontracts explicitly state that they must purchase and hold a PlanGrid license and account. Using PlanGrid help us centralize all of the document management activities involved with Construction Project Management.

Pros

  • Keeping an up to date set of documents and sharing it instantly with front line workers.
  • Keeping a history set of drawings, documents, etc. for use in change or schedule management.

Cons

  • Integration of other software such as BlueBeam or Asta Scheduling Software.
  • Response times on the web based application.
  • PlanGrid has allowed our job site to go paperless. A financial and environmental benefit.
  • PlanGrid reduces the potential for construction rework. Trades have access to the most up to date accurate drawings at any time.
PlanGrid is very similar to Procore but offers a slightly more straightforward user interface and seems not to be loaded with extra options that rarely would get used like Procore. PlanGrid is a much smoother software than Submittal Exchange or CMiC due to that same interface. Overall, every construction software package has positives and negatives, but PlanGrid seems to be one of the better systems.
PlanGrid is an excellent option for medium to large general contracting companies in general building construction. PlanGrid provides a single-source solution for all things document-related that previously were spread between multiple software packages or juggled in a hybrid email/fire management system that was easy to lose track of documents.
