PlanGrid revolutionizes the construction industry with its digital platform for managing projects and collaborating with teams.
As a construction engineer, Tracy Young faced challenges with carrying heavy blueprints and identifying issues on the jobsite, leading her to co-found PlanGrid, a digital platform for construction teams to collaborate and manage projects.
Plan Grid is a construction software platform that solves the issues of building off outdated drawings and is now the construction industry's favorite app with over 10,000 paying customers and 200,000 projects built.
During a coordination meeting, the speaker's blueprints were marked up by someone, prompting them to order a separate set for the team.
