Recently, I traveled from PlanGrid HQ in San Francisco all the way to New York City to consult at the largest private real estate development in American history, the Hudson Yards. While teaching a class of construction workers how to harness PlanGrid’s productivity tools, I was struck by how privileged I am to experience days like these. Do people in other industries get to experience the same kinds of awe-inspiring moments we get from construction? I doubt it.
However, that doesn’t mean I’m blind to the productivity issues that are holding our industry back.
Over the years, I’ve witnessed a foundational change in how construction and technology interact. Yet, despite this progress, studies show that construction productivity as a whole has actually declined over the past 50 years. Although our clients have reported millions of dollars worth of productivity improvements, I know PlanGrid can still do more to move the needle on the construction productivity gap if we keep building the right tools.
Luckily, the entire PlanGrid team agrees. In Fact, our CEO recently doubled-down on our company’s commitment to closing the productivity gap in a meaningful way. That’s why we released several new features and integrations that are specifically focused on improving productivity. These new features will help your teams work faster, communicate more effectively, and instantly find the information you need.
Join me for our upcoming webinar, Productivity with PlanGrid, on Tuesday, August 29th at 10 AM PT (1 PM ET) as I discuss these new and improved productivity tools. During the webinar, you’ll get a live demo of our new one-tap navigation, 10x faster sheet publishing, push notifications, and mobile 360° photos. I’ll also provide expert guidance on how to fit these features into your day-to-day workflows. Register today to start taking advantage of your new tools right away.
