Meer informatie over Groundplan

Pluspunten:

It's got the balance right between being easy to use but having the features needed. Supports multiple file formats and integrates with simPRO AND it's cloud-based.

Minpunten:

I haven't found anything I don't like about the program - if I get stuck on trying to find something the team is only a message or zoom call away.

Opmerkingen: Groundplan is more than a software program, it's backed by an energetic team that know their product and work diligently to ensure you get the most out of the program!

Pluspunten:

The Take-off abilities are efficient, templated and save time and energy! Initial set-up is easy and you are away!

Minpunten:

I would love to see an auto count function developed in the future, I feel this is the only thing i want for.

Best tool I have.

5,0 11 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: Took a few months to learn it properly and set up templates but now I love it. I've recommended the program to a lot of people and I always suggest getting some one on one training and setting up templates and think about how you would most use it prior to the training. I did this and the trainer actually suggest more options that I now use almost every day.

Pluspunten:

How easy it is to mark up, notes and make changes to send to field staff or engineers for advice/approval.

Minpunten:

The only thing tht may be missing is to be able to copy and section of a plan and paste it either on the same plan or on a new page etc to be able to mark up or do a blown-up section with mark ups or detail notes etc. But knowing Groundplan this feature may exist and I just don't know about it.

Groundplan's ease of use

4,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: We are now using Groundplan with our technicians when they are counting items for a residential fit off. We believe it will lead to a more accurate count which will mean less return trips do to forgotten fit off items.

Pluspunten:

Ease of use. Without consulting the help guide it's easy to work out how to use the progream.But the help guide is extremely helpful & easy to follow when needed.

Minpunten:

A multi coloured eraser tool would be good for the times when the plan has different colours.The ability to hide quantities on the pdf print of a plan legend.There is always room for more icons.

An awesome product which could be world class.

4,0 4 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: I do like using Groundplan, even if there are a few little things that prevent it from being a truly world class product. Maybe such an accolade will happen further down the track.

Pluspunten:

So easy to do take-off and push quotes to Simpro.

Minpunten:

There are things missing in the functionality which, as a former software engineer, I would think should be fairly easy to add to the program. I will concede, though, like any software product, the developers can't tick off all of the "nice-to-have's" at the same time. An example would be the ability to "nudge" a symbol into place using keyboard cursor keys. Colour-coding of measurements with a stage would be another. Could simply be that no other users ask for this stuff :D

If simple and long term processes are important to you

5,0 5 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: The customer service experience is fantastic! They are always happy to jump on the phone or Zoom with you to solve issues and get you running at 100% again.

Pluspunten:

Groundplan is very easy to use. The team, especially Caz is exceptionally helpful and they are great at helping you achieve a result if you can show them what you are trying to achieve. The integration with Simpro is exceptional once you understand how it works, this can be a little overwhelming if you are new to Simpro and Groundplan.

Minpunten:

The icon sizing is not particularly easy to get right and takes a few clicks to change. This is only an issue when designing plans for presentation but does not affect take-offs.

My only takeoff programme

5,0 4 weken geleden Nieuw

Pluspunten:

I only use Groundplan now for all my takeoffs, it saves time, paper and is easily shareable with anyone who needs or wants to see the marked up plans. The programme is so simple to use when marking up a plan and then populate a quotation. Additionally these marked up plans provide our clients a clear view of what has been included in their quotation as all the listed items may not make 100% sense to them if they are not from a construction background.

Minpunten:

Unfortunately being cloud based when the internet is out I have to wait a while to continue work, first world problems!

Groundplan is a must have...

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Extremely happy I have tried other estimating software over the past 15 years and nothing has come close.

Pluspunten:

Groundplan saves me hours each and every day now that I have my template set up and understand how the program works it honestly saves me hours each and every plan I look at.

Minpunten:

There are not too many features that don’t work beautifully and now that it is integrated with xero it is going to make my life even easier as it will spit out a quote once I have time to takeoff

Love Groundplan a must have

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: The team at ground plan are lovely to deal with and the customer support is brilliant.

Pluspunten:

Ground plan is easy to use with many features and has become an essential part of our business. Ground plan is used every day to quote, keep track of stages within a job and can be used to draw up asbuilts and changes within plans as required. The development team add features to make our quoting experience pleasant and the team should be proud of their product.

Minpunten:

I don't have any issues with Groundplan that impact me negatively at all.

Groundplan Review

5,0 8 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Being an electrical contracting company, counting symbols off a plan can be tiring on the eyes as well as problematic if you miss something you did not see. Using Groundplan has saved me printing off paper plans and hoping I can see all the symbols. Being able to zoom right into the plan and see everything has been a blessing on my eyes. No more need for the magnifying glass! If your a Simpro user, Groundplan is a must as all your pre-builds are synced with Groundplan, so no double entry.

Pluspunten:

Sync's directly with Simpro Can zoom into drawings and see everything Scale the drawings, and do take-offs for cable, tray and conduits Easily outsource the take-off and see what has been allowed for and if anything is missing

Just the user friendly aspects of the whole software. Very easy to learn and pick up on how to use it from the get go. Help tab is also very helpful as it has all the information the user will need. The Ground plan team are always ready to help when you need them too.

Minpunten:

Wish i had changed to groundplan sooner

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: Its really good, and once you get your head around a few of the formulas (which i did after one training session) its going to make pricing complex plans a breeze

Pluspunten:

I can price a plan on any computer/device with the internet not just the computer the software is on, and its so good being able to ring and get an answer straight away from someone in my own country.

Minpunten:

There were a few things that i was not use to from using my old software but after 1 training session has got those sorted and was actually better than my old software

Great cloud-based drawing software

5,0 8 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We've been using Groundplan since not long after it was first released to the market. It's a great product and well priced for the functionality it provides. We get very good assistance from their support team as well and they have always been open to developing the product further based on user feedback. It's also easy to use, with our team picking up the software and running with it very quickly. It's been a welcome asset to our business, improving efficiencies and producing great quality, take-offs, plans, and drawings.

Pluspunten:

Ease of use. Flexible. Ability to integrate to our other business system. Well priced, with concurrent licencing model available.

Minpunten:

Nothing, it's a great tool

Picking up the dollars and cents

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Love the system. For me it’s saved a lot of phone calls and time on the project management side of the business.

Pluspunten:

This product, I think is essential for the quoting and documentation side of our business. It has shown us how much we were actually missing when we were previously quoting jobs. It also allows us to document on the go for the project managers, and helps them to accurately run the jobs.

Minpunten:

I would like to be able to customise the symbols but being there is so many to choose from, it’s not a big deal.
