Most Helpful Positive User Review
A positive reviewer from the site Software Advice said that their field employees have taken full use of the software. He said he’s never seen their field employees ease into a system as much as they did with PlanGrid. He said they like it because it’s user friendly, customer service is excellent, and the mobile app is fast and reliable.

PlanGrid has three plan options — Nailgun, Dozer, and Crane. Prices range between $39 to $119 per month (per user) and are billed annually. The software itself is sheet-based, so the main difference between the plans is the number of sheets users are allowed to create and have access to.
The sheets mentioned on the table above are drawing sheets or construction plans uploaded by users onto PlanGrid’s platform. PlanGrid also has a Sheet Compare function that allows users to overlay sheets while on the job site, much like putting blueprints one above the other over a light table.
Sheet count is calculated based on the total number of pages hosted on PlanGrid’s cloud server at any given time. Users may remove and add sheets whenever necessary so they can stay within the sheet limit of their plan.
PlanGrid’s tools and functions include:
- Instant sync
- Punch lists
- Sheet compare
- Photos & videos
- Field reports
- PDF reports
- Admin console
- Integrations (BarkerBlue, Dropbox, etc.)
PlanGrid customer service can be reached via email, live chat, and phone. Users can also get self-assisted help through their training resources.
