Finding That Special Someone

In love as in life, you don’t want to waste too much time looking for just the right fit, but you also don’t want to settle for less than you deserve. So, how can you be sure you’ve found “the one”? We’re afraid that Cupid can’t help you here, you’ll need to find the answer within yourself. Ask yourself: what reputation does this person have? What values do they bring to the table? And you should ask yourself the same questions about your construction software. What reviews do they have? What do my trusted colleagues say who know this company? Are they focused on what matters and do they believe we can build a better tomorrow? By honing in on what about software that’s going to elevate your life, not detract from it, you’ll surely find your right fit in no time.

An App That Travels With You, Stays With You

They say in new relationships when you travel with someone is when you really get to know a person. In today’s fast-paced, interconnected world, the same couldn’t be truer about your construction software. Construction doesn’t stop just because you’re not in the office–and the office work doesn’t stop just because you’re on the jobsite. With PlanGrid’s mobile-first approach to technology, offline access of all relevant data is key. Since the platform works on iOS, Android and Windows Surfaces, you get to experience the love on your favorite device when you’re on-the-go.

A Focus on Communication

Funny enough, the same can be said about your construction software. Luckily, PlanGrid helps break down the barriers that siphon mission-critical information not only between various groups on the jobsite, but also between the field and office teams. With communication on the agenda, it ensures that all project stakeholders have the right information at the right time to do their jobs.

Go forth and conquer the world–you and your beloved are greater than the sum of two, so get out there and make the world a better place through your joy.
