Pros

The ease of the program has been great. The ability to obtain the information out in the field is a plus benefit.
Awesome history set, mark-up capability, submittal/document integration, punch lists, the list goes on and on. Very intuitive interface and our field guys love it.
They want you to succeed, they want to help you fix any issues that arise - they're part of our team and we appreciate their excellent customer and technical support.

Pros

Well after the probiationary period we decided to buy subscriptions for all our employees. We as the entire company highly recommend archdesk as the great feature for developing your business further.
Since then, there has been significant updates to the system which is great and very much look forward to learning what the system can do further.
The dashboard layout is fantastic as you can customise what information you want to see in real time without having to wait an age with older systems to download into a spreadsheet.

Cons

Plangrid has a function to add hyperlinks within the planes, so that they lead directly to another plane. This system is very uncomfortable, and tends to make the platform collapse, so it is useless.
PlanGrid is an arrogant, self centered company that refuses to be of help when asked. I have recorded complaints with the California BBB and the FTC.
The interface is still difficult to navigate for more seasoned professionals which can cause them frustration.

Cons

Our Finance department loathes the system due the incredibly poor integration with Xero and inaccuracies the system causes.
It is the system of record for everything. I've worked at an organization before that didn't use it and life was miserable.
Lack of customisation for setting out your company process.

Archdesk

A great tool for the whole team

Reviewed 2 months ago

I find Archdesk very user friendly and is suitable even for the people who have limited tech knowledge. I find that it is suited for every role within a construction company from estimating to accounts to general admin and even the engineers.

Pros

I like that everything for each project is in one place. All members are able to view all of the critical information for their role, we dont have to do any double entry or input into multiple CRM systems / folders.

Cons

There isnt much to say here the only thing I can think of is that you can only put one overall price in for a job and in construction, there can be many possibilities for costs, so to be able to put a few lines under contract price would be great.

Incredibly Disappointing

Reviewed 2 years ago

Terrible.

Pros

I am struggling to write anything positive about the system and can only say that the people are polite.

Cons

Archdesk is incredibly clunky, and inaccurate. It increases the duplication of administrative processes and worryingly it requires users to maintain documents outside the program, such as spreadsheets, to keep track of work. Of more concern is that the system fails in basic auditing and compliance. Staff were able to delete documents and evidence from the system without the Compliance Director being informed. With Grenfell being at the forefront of the digital revolution within the Construction Industry the accurate recording of works and data is absolutely vital. Our Finance department loathes the system due the incredibly poor integration with Xero and inaccuracies the system causes.
