Martin was responsible for the implementation, management, and training of PlanGrid with the team, so he visited weekly to stay close to the project. He brought his iPad onsite to share the capabilities of the application and demonstrate its use in both offline and online scenarios. The trial was successful. The Brighton project was delivered on time and budget with minimal defects. The directors were happy with the results, and PlanGrid was rolled out company-wide. By concentrating on one project initially, teams in Jerram Falkus became familiar using web- based applications and smart tablets in a remote environment. At the outset, Martin spent time on site to socialise PlanGrid. Some of the site managers have been with the company for 50 years and were initially reluctant to embrace the new technology. Martin demonstrated how PlanGrid could make their lives easier, freeing up a couple of hours per week and improving communication across a project. They embraced the ability to have the information they needed at their fingertips and have seen the benefit of moving away from a manual system. Up to date drawings, specifications, and contracts can be easily shared, and time-stamped photographs help to resolve snag lists in a timely manner. PlanGrid is easy to use and very intuitive. The company took advantage of PlanGrid training to get up and running. Some users need more one-to- one support to get up to a consistent level with the application and Martin has stayed close to the teams as they become familiar with the new technology. He has found PlanGrid Support responsive and helpful when needed. As it's an evolving platform, PlanGrid is receptive to suggestions from users. Four years from the first trial, Jerram Falkus is using PlanGrid across all projects and is reaping the benefits of improved collaboration and an increase in productivity. Martin has been able to demonstrate how PlanGrid has helped the company to deliver a series of projects on time, on budget, and with minimal defects. This helps to set the company on the right track to prosper for many more generations of the family business. Collaboration Stats 18 projects run on PlanGrid 20k drawings uploaded 3,500+ photos on record
