FAQs

What does general contractor software do?

General contractor software is designed to support the daily tasks of the construction industry. Whether that’s distributing blueprints or installation instructions, estimating costs, monitoring budgets, or managing subcontractors, software for general contractors is designed by companies that understand how construction projects work. Ultimately, they can save general contractors time and money by improving efficiency and quality.

Does general contractor software also work for small contractors?

Yes! Even if you’re a small general contractor, construction software can make your life easier. It can also help you to compete with companies that are larger but aren’t working as efficiently. For example, if general contractor software can automatically complete some of your paperwork for you, it frees up time for you and your site managers to get to other important tasks. You’ll also be better prepared for OSHA inspections or handovers. Finally, PlanRadar’s flexible pricing system offers different packages for different needs. With free subcontractor accounts, going digital can be extremely cost-effective for small business.

How can I choose the best general contractor software in the United States?

You don’t need a big IT team to choose an effective general contractor software. You first need to identify your business’s needs, and an easy way to do that is to talk to your project managers and site managers. Find out what digital tools they need in order to save time and improve construction quality. Next, research existing general contractor software and make a list of all those that have the features you need. Use their free trials, attend demos or webinars to see the software in action or run an in-depth test with several members of your team. Gather the results, compare the prices and find out if you’ll need to invest in extra training for your staff. Once you have all of that information, making a decision should be easy.

Does PlanRadar offer a free trial of its software for general contractors?

Yes! PlanRadar offers users a 30-day free trial so that they can test the platform in real-world situations. You can create your own projects and invite subcontractors to get a feel for how it would work for your business. Alternatively, you can request a free consultation, so our expert team can show you how to get the best out of PlanRadar.

Can general contractors manage subcontractors in PlanRadar?

PlanRadar is designed to make subcontractor management easy. Users can invite an unlimited number of subcontractors to their projects at no extra cost. The subcontractor just needs to download the free app to see all of the work assigned to them. They can also contact the site manager if they need more information, and they can send photo and video evidence when they’ve completed a task. Users can also assign tickets to groups of subcontractors, which is useful when you have hired an external contractor but aren’t sure which people are on-site every day. Just assign a job to all plumbers, for instance, and they’ll all get the notification.
