Construction companies work with all kinds of documents, but plans and drawings are the most important and most complex to work with. Blueprints, plans, and BIM models don’t just define where walls should be built or where windows should go, they contain vital information about the structure of a project and the different components that are found under flooring and inside walls. That includes everything from the foundation to plumbing, electrical wiring, and HVAC systems. Construction plans are living documents that are updated throughout the construction phase to reflect the real situation. As a result, it’s very important that teams are referring to the correct plan versions. Architects, engineers and technical teams can provide accurate drawings, but it’s just as important to distribute plans to the entire site team. It’s also important to store outdated versions of plans to help create as-built drawings before handover and in case of legal claims after the project ends. For projects with hundreds, if not thousands, of construction drawings and plans, plan management software lets you update, share, annotate, and safely store plans – saving you hours compared to working with paper plans or sharing these files via email.
The best plan management software is the one that perfectly meets the needs of your company while being cost-effective. When you’re trying to find the best plan management software for your construction business, it’s important to identify the features that are essential for you. Are there any specific integrations that you need in order to ensure that the software works with your design tools? What file types have to be supported? Do you want everyone in a construction team to be able to access the plans, or just a handful of key team members? Make sure that you test potential software using free trials, request demonstrations, and ask for quotes from different plan management software companies. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Once you’ve finished your research, compare each option’s features, any other benefits they offer, and the quoted costs to decide which is the right fit for your business.

PlanRadar allows you to upload the latest plans and immediately share them with your site teams. Other users can then pin tasks directly to plans, which helps them to more accurately locate problems. It also helps subcontractors find the right place to carry out their assigned tasks. Users can also annotate plans when reporting issues, making it very clear where the plan differs from reality. You can also upload new plan versions from the office and all existing pins and tasks will automatically move over to the new version without you having to manually change them. You can keep all outdated plan versions for future reference, and compare past plan versions to identify when a change was made.
