Problem: inefficient defect management

PDM Savjetovanje engineers previously used to fix defects using traditional methods. PDM Savjetovanje team notes that PlanRadar software is very efficient and convenient for the entire team, regardless of age: both for experienced engineers using it, and for younger, advanced team specialists. 

 Therefore, PDM Savjetovanje has been using PlanRadar for many years for the tasks that most construction industry participants face and that appear on every construction site: « We use this application for construction in order to manage construction snag lists. On average, there are 1-2 structural defects per 10 sq. m of building area. » 

 Martinek emphasizes: « Our construction supervisors use PlanRadar software for a variety of specialized tasks. With this application, a database of all defects and faults is effectively collected, and specialists have a better and more transparent idea of the detected problem since defects are fixed by a pin on the plan and supplemented with photos, and videos directly in the ticket. You no longer need to enter data meticulously into Excel spreadsheets, make separate records in Word, do all this manually, and also keep a construction site diary on paper. »

Solution: with PlanRadar, PDM Savjetovanje has achieved simple and effective defect management

PlanRadar also proved to be a useful digital tool when working with official construction documentation and made it easier for PDM Savjetovanje to communicate with colleagues within the project: « With this application, our engineers were able to create detailed and relevant tasks for contractors quickly; and each task clearly indicated what needed to be eliminated containing photo facts and a pin on the drawing, as well as to receive feedback from responsible persons about a task fulfillment. 

Result: full and transparent coverage of the situation on construction site

Thus, using PlanRadar offers many advantages for construction projects. The main advantages are that all team members have a single database and in real time, always at hand, available on any device. 

PDM Savjetovanje used PlanRadar for project handover using its digital format with a complete list of defects », Martinek explains. « We will go on using it, first of all, to provide full and transparent coverage of the situation on construction site and fix defects, as well as to improve communication with a project team.
