Construction companies work with all kinds of documents, but one of the most important is plans. Plans, blueprints and BIM models don’t just tell workers where walls should go, they contain important information about the structure and different components that go inside walls and under flooring, from electrics to plumbing and HVAC systems. Construction plans are constantly being updated during a build to reflect the real situation, so it’s essential that teams are referring to the correct version. Architects, engineers and technical teams work hard to provide accurate drawings, but distributing plans should be easy. It’s also important to store past versions of plans in case of future claims or to help create as-built drawings before handover. In projects with hundreds, if not thousands, of plans, it’s essential to have a plan management system that makes sense.
Cloud-based plan management software enables you to stop relying on paper plans. It gives you the ability to put the most up-to-date blueprints and plans into the hands of your teams, including subcontractors and external partners, as soon as you have the latest version. Good plan management software also allows you to store past plan versions and to conduct plan comparisons so that you can see what has changed from one version to the next. This prevents mistakes on-site. Other features can include the ability to annotate blueprints or to pin tasks and issues directly to their location on the plan. By making the plan easy to access and interact with, you can reduce the number of mistakes on-site.
When choosing the best plan management software for your construction business, you need to understand exactly what you need. Make a list of essential features, alongside a list of items that you’d like but don’t necessarily need. Are there any integrations that you need, to make sure that the software works with your existing tools? The next step is to investigate the available options, using the list of core features to make a shortlist of products. Test potential software using free trials, request demonstrations and ask for quotes from plan management software companies. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You should also evaluate the level of support on offer and the level of onboarding and training that your team needs before getting started. Once you’ve finished your research, compare each software’s features, any other benefits or negative points and prices to decide which is the right choice for your company.
