Intending to provide an adequate solution for construction site management to construction companies, but also to help investors and contractors save time and money, the company PlanRadar
created the eponymous software for the management of construction documentation. The main idea was to enable quality monitoring of flaws in projects and their documenting. Although primarily meant for the construction sector, PlanRadar quickly found application in other fields as well, such as facility management and production industry, practically, in all spheres which require the creation of quality documentation in the field.
PlanRadar, which was founded in 2013 in Vienna, is constantly growing, increasing its income and the number of employees each year. The plan is to continue that way too, and the next step is expansion to the market of Southeast Europe.
PlanRadar’s offer to users and the benefits of the implementation of this solution, but also the company’s further plans, were the topic of our conversation with Bojan Petkovic, the Country Manager for Southeast Europe at PlanRadar
– Each project manager or an engineer at a construction site needs to communicate with numerous associates, using various tools, such as mobile phones, emails, analog records, written documents, and to run a record about everything that happens on a certain project. They also need to monitor the flaws during the construction itself. PlanRadar combined all those segments into a central place, a platform which uses a certain blueprint as a basis, so everything that happens on a project is mapped directly from the blueprint.
This means that, using the mobile app, the user can visit the site, locate the problem, document it with images or audio records and inform another user of it. PlanRadar is in fact a central platform which not only helps the app administrator, but enables other users to get included as well, namely, contractors and subcontractors, investors, all those involved in the project itself. This means that a large number of people can take part in a project, monitoring what happens within each individual task in real time.eKapija: Do users need to be specially trained to use this app?
– On the contrary! Experience shows that a user needs no more than half an hour to fully master the app. There are three main segments of PlanRadar that make it globally successful.
