FAQs

What does construction document management software do?

Construction document management software is specialized for secure document control, distribution, and storage while catering to the specific needs of the construction industry. Construction projects generate a huge number of documents, from pre-construction reports and architectural drawings, all the way through to commissioning reports, punch lists and handover documents. While document management software allows you to store and share these files, a construction document management software like PlanRadar allows you to work with these documents. For example, PlanRadar allows your entire team to view BIM models and includes tools to compare and annotate construction plans. You also have the option to store documents like installation manuals, warranties or health & safety information within the platform. Finally, PlanRadar allows you to generate reports and other documents within the platform, using the data collected by your team members. You can even sign and share these documents without ever having to leave the system.

How does construction document control software help contractors?

Construction projects are extremely complex, with hundreds of plans, reports, and other documents being handled by hundreds of team members every day. Document management software adds order to the chaos, making it easier to find the records you need. Cloud-based document management software for construction also enables you to share plans or documents in real-time with an unlimited number of people, removing the inevitable delays that arise when sharing paper documents. You can also easily replace older versions of documents with up-to-date ones and automatically distribute them to the relevant people.

What is the best construction document management software in the US?

The best document management software for construction is the one that solves the problem for your business. Your challenges could vary depending on whether you’re an architect, an engineer, or a general contractor, or depending on the size of your business. When choosing the best document management software for your construction business, you should understand exactly what you need. You should then thoroughly research the software available on the market, using a list of essential features to build a shortlist of candidates. Try out potential options using free trials, attend product demos and request prices from a range of document management software providers. Ask lots of questions – what file types do they work with? How do the permissions settings work? Is there a size limit on documents? Once you’ve assessed the features, asked all your questions and evaluated the costs, you’ll have found the best document management software for your business.

What is the best way to handle document management in a small organization dealing with many construction plans?

Small organizations have to work smarter and more cost-effectively than large ones when it comes to choosing software solutions. One of the best options for them is to choose a software that solves multiple problems at once, meaning that they can use one product for almost everything. For example, PlanRadar can be used to manage documents and plans, to manage tasks and create punch lists, for communication and collaboration, to oversee OSHA requirements, and to generate all kinds of reports for clients. You can even manage large teams of subcontractors for no extra fee. Small construction businesses can benefit from all of these different areas at once rather than paying for several different pieces of software.

How does construction document control software help contractors?

Whether it’s a missing document, the wrong version of a plan, or a paper file that has accidentally been archived or shredded, there are plenty of ways that poor document management can slow down contractors – or just cause annoyance. Document control software ensures that all your paperwork is stored digitally and safely, and that you can recall the paperwork you need with a simple search.

How can document management software improve communication in construction?

Poor communication causes lower quality construction projects. People with the wrong information will make mistakes, through no fault of their own. Document management software helps you to make sure that everyone is working from the right version of any plan, or has access to the latest version of any regulations or other documents. PlanRadar also enables you to communicate within the platform, removing any confusion about which phone number to call or who to email.
