FAQs

What is general contractor software?

General contractor software is specially designed to meet the needs of the construction industry. Whether that’s distributing blueprints and plans, monitoring budgets, or managing a large number of subcontractors, software for main contractors is designed by companies that understand a construction project’s workflow.

The first step to choosing the right construction contractor software is to identify what your business needs. Then, establish a list of the options that might fit your requirements. You’ll also need to decide what budget you want to allocate to software. Where possible, test free versions of contractor software and take part in free trials. Attend webinars or demonstrations and ask questions. Once you have a shortlist of the best software for contractors, get personalised quotes and make your decision based on a combination of features and cost.

Subcontractor management is easy with PlanRadar. You can invite an unlimited number of subcontractors to your projects, free of charge! All they have to do is download the app and they can see all of the tickets that you have assigned to them. They can also send the site manager a message when they need more information, and they can send photos and videos when they’ve completed a task. You can also assign tickets to groups of subcontractors, which is useful when you have hired a subcontractor but aren’t sure which individual workers are on-site each day. Simply assign a job to all electricians, for instance, and they’ll all get the notification.

The most important features of PlanRadar vary from contractor to contractor and from project to project. However, all building contractors need a way to monitor construction quality, and PlanRadar’s snagging features make it easy to ensure work is finished to a high standard. Other contractors find the task management features essential, as they can plan out each step of each phase of a project in advance and monitor that their timelines are still on track. Finally, PlanRadar’s reporting features are useful for all kinds of roles, from QSHE managers to project managers. Learn more about PlanRadar’s platform.

Yes, PlanRadar is ideal for creating a complete audit trail of everything that happens on your site, supporting the “Golden Thread” of information. With all tasks assigned to a named person, you can immediately see which team member was responsible for what. All communication in the app is also stored with a date and time stamp so that you can see when and how a decision was reached and who was involved. You can also create checklists or reports for specific safety protocols. Data is stored beyond the end of your project so that you can return to it in the event of a claim.

PlanRadar is set up to be as flexible as possible in its uses. That means that general contractors can use the platform to track work completed, both by a company’s employees and by external subcontractors.

Finally, using user metrics, you can see which of your team members are the most engaged with the platform and which have not been keeping up with their work.
