Pros

Smart guide has been a great addition - and it's great being able to create new symbols as required and the support is FANTASTIC.
Overall the interaction with Groundplan and in particular [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been fantastic, the training sessions we had were very informative and a lot of fun.
We look more professional going to site meetings with the plans already done up and very clear to read. The program itself is amazing and very easy to use which is just what everyone needs.

Pros

The take off package is great and saves times and money on printing endless amounts of drawings. And also great service and very helpful.
I absolutely love the quick response from the members of the Countfire Staff. They are quick to respond and help resolve any issues you may have.
The customer service is absolutely amazing and better than any company I have ever worked with. The App in itself is brilliant and is so easy to use I would recommend this to anyone.

Cons

Unfortunately being cloud based when the internet is out I have to wait a while to continue work, first world problems.
Nothing comes to mind about things I dislike about Groundplan.
Slightly difficult to manipulate symbols etcPlan preview could be biggerMan hours to enter individual symbols with no auto shuffle button for symbols.

Cons

Autocount is somewhat unreliable so have to check very closely for any missed items, this however does not take long.
I was dubious how well this product would work and how accurately the software would find the symbols for my electrical drawings.
It requires the use of a dropbox which might not always be practical in companies which have limited internet browsing.
