Why do I need specialised general contractor software?

These days, it is almost essential for general contractors to use software that is specially designed for their day-to-day tasks. While construction contractors have mostly graduated from pen and paper to Excel spreadsheets, general contractor software supports specific needs like distributing plans or site safety guidance, monitoring budgets, or managing subcontractors. Unlike general project management software, products that are designed for construction are able to handle files for architects’ drawings or BIM models and are also easy to use on a mobile device from a building site. Overall, they can save building contractors time and money by improving communication, reducing the number of mistakes and allowing project managers to better manage their resources. Read more about the benefits of general contractor software.

Yes! If your business is a relatively small contractor, general contractor software can revolutionise the way you work. With fewer people, you need to work smarter. Contractor software can automate or streamline some of your tasks – from client reports to filing health & safety records. With those saved hours, you can work on your other important tasks. That means that you can work as effectively as large contractors. PlanRadar’s flexible pricing system offers different packages for different needs. Licences also include free subcontractor accounts, so going digital can be extremely cost-effective for small contractors.

The best construction contractor software is the one that fits your requirements. If you don’t need an accounting system built in, then there’s no point spending more money on a product that includes one. However, if you already have an accounting system, you might want to pick a contractor software that integrates smoothly with your existing software. You don’t need a big IT team to choose an effective general contractor software. All you need is an understanding of what you want to achieve and how. Then you can research and test multiple options. The one that’s easiest to use, contains all the necessary features and promises to be cost-effective is the building contractor software you should choose.

Yes! PlanRadar offers users a 30-day free trial so that they can test the platform in real-world situations. You can create your own projects and invite subcontractors to get a feel for how it would work for your business. Alternatively, you can request a free consultation, so our expert team can show you how to get the best out of PlanRadar.

PlanRadar is designed to be used by general contractors’ internal teams, plus their subcontractors and any other stakeholders. Licences include the ability to invite an unlimited number of subcontractors to your project, free of charge. That means subcontractors just need to download the free app to see any jobs you assign to them, any relevant plans or other information they need to work. They can also communicate with a site manager if they need more materials, resources or information, and they can send photo and video evidence when they’ve completed a task. You can also create groups of subcontractors, which is useful when you have hired an external company but aren’t sure which individuals will be on-site every day. Just assign a job to all carpenters, for example, and they’ll all get notified. Read more about managing subcontractors with PlanRadar.
