Overall Satisfaction with PlanSwift

PlanSwift is the main source of drawings for our company. This replaces the paper copy of drawings saving paper, time, and expense. PlanSwift is available on mobile devices and on desktop computers. This software has made a huge difference in how we do business.
  • PlanSwift drawing uploads are fast and easy. It recognizes the pages and titles with very little error.
  • Drawing can be viewed offline including older versions for comparison. You can select which drawings you want to download to save room on your device.
  • Submittals are not user friendly in PlanGrid. In fact, this is the one feature we would like to see improved.
  • Billing is based on how many users you have. It would be very nice if they would do it based on revenue or other factors such as other programs do.
  • A large set of paper drawings is quite expensive. With PlanGrid, we only have the time uploading them.
  • When a foreman needs to refer to the drawings, he pulls it up right where he is. There is no need to go to the truck or to another location where the drawings are.
PlanSwift by far is the superior product. Procore is used more universally in our area, but the drawings features by far surpass Procore. We work offline usually with our tablets. This would be the only way to go when working offline. The submittal process in Procore is much better, but that would be the only thing we can see.
I have called once needing support. I was asking about the "compare" tool to compare different versions. They told be about their desktop app and I downloaded. They answered quickly, you could understand them, and they took care of my question.

If you need a way to have digital drawings on site, this is the way to go. Also, as a Project Manager, it is amazingly easy to upload drawings. When uploading a large job, it's nice to have very few changes to make to the page number and title.
