Thanks to PlanRadar, Nicolas Boisrame has eliminated 99% of the paperwork involved in site monitoring: “Since we’ve been using PlanRadar, we no longer need to buy boxes to store documentation at the end of a project. Our paper archives have been completely replaced by digital archives. Now, only an A0 plan for the site office is still printed. PlanRadar has completely replaced paper files for the project manager: “Today, I no longer have any physical files on all the operations I’m involved in, as all the information I need is on the server and on my tablet. During the construction phase, all I need is my tablet. I’ve said goodbye to paper files. For example, when I meet my customers on site, we look at the plans on the tablet. For my note-taking, I fill in the tasks on the tablet and make annotations directly on the plans. In the end, I’m able to move around with just one tablet, and I have the information with me all the time.” As well as being more economical, this represents a definite ecological advantage for the company.
With the switch to digital technology, Mr Boisrame’s objective was clear: to stop wasting time looking for information, and to be more responsive to daily requests from customers or subcontractors. PlanRadar has provided a perfect response to this objective: “I’ve seen a definite increase in time efficiency in terms of the speed with which I can find and distribute key information to move the project forward. Previously, if a subcontractor called me with a question about the site and I didn’t have the plans with me, I had to ask him to call me back the next time I came into the office, often the next day. The next day, I wasted time going back over the file and reprocessing the information. Today, I’m able to give the information immediately when someone calls me, without wasting any time. In concrete terms, I estimate that this has saved me between 30 minutes and an hour’s work a day.
Nicolas Boisrame sums up his experience of the platform as follows: “Having information with you at all times, on site and offline, is the major advantage of PlanRadar.”
