Plangrid

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: Great. The app is extremely intuative so the learning curve is reduced and simple. Just looks more complicated then it really is.

Pros:

Document viewing the Field is a necessity. Linking RFI's and submittals to the drawings makes things clear and reduces misses during construction.

Cons:

Sometimes sync issue while uploading photos and documents while changing from WIFI to LTE. Sometimes the sync needs to be cleared and redone.

Autodesk Construction Cloud

4.0 10 months ago

Comments: Overall it was okay. The implementation team (3rd party vendor who sold the bundle to us) could have been better, but the product itself was overall good.

Pros:

The fact that all of the modules within Build, Cost Management, and Insight tie into each other makes it very easy to create Issues connected to RFIs to Plans, etc.

Cons:

Sometimes it can be a little clunky with how some items work on a desktop version, but not on a mobile version. In Meetings, for example, one can assign due dates and people to complete the action items on the desktop version, but you cannot assign people in the mobile version.

Alternatives Considered: Procore

Reasons for Choosing Autodesk Construction Cloud: We needed something more robust as we grew from smaller remodeling projects to large ground-up construction projects.

Switched From: GiddyUp

Reasons for Switching to Autodesk Construction Cloud: Less expensive and could do everything ProCore did.

All hands on deck

5.0 last month New

Pros:

I absolutely love the Compare tool. new to a project and having the ability to see what has happened, changed and catch up is an amazing perk. this all depends on the effort put into keeping things up to date. Best case scenario, its hands down the best tool to have that I have not seen in other software.

Cons:

limited access to or no access to Bim model or clash. it should be available overall because some clashes may be overlooked as it would not pertain directly to the coordinator. I personally think it should be included with no ability to edit but to help communicate overlooked clashes in the model

Alternatives Considered: Procore

Reasons for Choosing Autodesk Construction Cloud: it was a requirement with the new project that everything be on Build

Switched From: Procore

Don't waste your time

2.0 5 years ago

Pros:

cheap to get into need to fill the space for minimum number of characters

Cons:

lack of functionality OCR is not upto par can't search text within reports

Alternatives Considered: Fieldwire

Reasons for Switching to Autodesk Construction Cloud: One of our major clients subscribed to Plangrid and we wanted to be on the same system. Over a year later they still haven't used it on any of the projects, and I doubt they ever will. Plangrid is one of the cheapest software to get into, however, once you start adding users and pages/sheets the cost becomes on par or higher than other services while the functionality is very much lacking. so the overall value is very low compared to Procore. Even the one thing they are supposed to be good - drawing management, it is far from ideal. OCR doesn't recognize a lot of the links, in some cases entire PDFs are not workable in Plangrid. Support says it has to do with how the PDF was created, but since we don't create the drawings we have no control of it and therefore have no way of using them in Plangrid. Other services like Procore have no issue reading the same files, so that tells me the problem is with Plangrid not the file. Another issue with the drawings tool is the inability to separate the drawings by areas. Tech support suggested that we create separate projects for each separate area, which defeats the entire purpose of this service.

Robust Toolset for Streamlined Construction Management

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

What I like most about Autodesk Construction Cloud is its comprehensive integration of tools that enhance project management and collaboration. The platform centralizes project data, which streamlines workflows, minimizes miscommunications, and reduces errors. Having real-time access to information significantly improves tracking and coordination among team members, leading to smoother project execution and increased overall productivity.

Cons:

Although the platform’s outages are rare, they can significantly disrupt our operations due to our reliance on its central data repository. Additionally, I worry about the potential difficulty of migrating data to another platform in the future, which could pose challenges for long-term flexibility and data portability.

Alternatives Considered: Procore , Fieldwire and zipBoard
