Even though PlanGrid is one of the youngest companies on the list, it has some of the largest clients and a vision that will redefine how projects are managed in construction in the future.
PlanGrid might be a new company to join the Constructech 50 list this year, but it is a company the editorial team and advisory board have been watching since it launched in 2012. Coming out of Silicon Valley, the company has landed thousands of clients since its launch just three years ago and has lined up investors looking to back the company and enable growth in the future.
With an eye on the future and an understanding of the mobility needs in the construction industry, the company provides a cloud-based solution for document management that allows plans and markups to be instanteously shared with everyone on a construction project, no matter where they are.
With the solution, contractors and architects can collaborate on project plans, specs, RFIs (requests for information), photos, and punchlists from mobile devices.
This is one company that understands the construction industry no longer needs to be tethered to desktop computers or even laptops, and can move many of the document management and project management tasks to mobile devices. PlanGrid’s vision for the future of construction aligns well with the direction technology is moving in the industry.
Even though the organization is one of the youngest companies on this year’s list, PlanGrid has proven it has staying power, with its technology being used on more than 200,000 projects and storing more than 18 million pages of digital blueprints for construction.
What’s more, the company has landed some of the biggest named construction companies in the business—many of which have received considerable benefits from using the technology from PlanGrid.
It is encouraging to see what PlanGrid is bringing to the construction market, as it represents the future of where technology is headed in construction.
With backing from investors and a lineup of large clients in the construction space, the company has positioned itself to help redefine how projects are managed in the industry going forward.
