How do general contractors manage subcontractors in PlanRadar?

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 hire 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.

Can I store evidence for claims or the Golden Thread of information?

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.
