The ultimate question: what does myPlan.cloud know?
Here comes the details.
We made our software to get your construction documentation managed in all the way possible.
It's a plug-n-play SaaS application, so you don't need to install anything.
Just open a web browser and use the software - it's that simple as it sounds.
Always keep your documents perfectly ordered. Forget about the mess of the PDF and DWG fileheaps - just build the project structure in minutes, and let the designers upload their documents. Then keep them clear, bright and simply organized.
If a new version comes in, just automatically attach it to the existing document as a revision - and you will easily find it in the future.
Let's guess a very particular approvement workflow, with a lot of participants and with parallel and/or consecutive approvement steps...
...multiply the complexity by three...
...and yes, myPlan.cloud can handle that too!
If you find something unusual, just make a ticket. Upload photos, change issue status, delegate to work teams or subcontractors. Review the perceptions. Make custom fields to get the exact issue description that the project requires.
You will never miss the deadlines again.
If some important event happens - for example a plan designer uploads a new revision - everyone who is interested get notification. We know that you don't have time all day for checking the changes, so we won't flood you - instead we just send a daily change summary.
When you think your action is urgent you can send the notifications immediately to the project participants - nice and easy.
No one has time for learning a compicated software, especially the collegues who works on the site.
With myPlan.cloud every function has a permission wich can be added to any folder. So if you don't give access, the irrelevant buttons and folders are invisible - and the people will only see what they need to use.
just the tip of the iceberg
Keep everything organized - folders, documents, revisions, approvements or issue-tickets. You can also search and filter the results in the entire project to find everything faster.
Upload a new version (called revision), and attach it to the original document. Keep everything nicely ordered, and always know wich is the latest and actual revision.
Approve or decline a revision, and leave your comments to the designer. You can even withdraw them - if you have permission to do that -, but be careful: the logs are transparent to the management.
You can set the permissions allocated to user-roles or specificly to the users. These are basically heritable settings, but you can also fine tune every single folder.
How many times did the designer forget to mark his changes on new revisions? The pain was palpable, but now it's over: myPlan will find the differences easily.
During the approvement process, you can leave visual marks for the plan designer. Make your instructions as clear as possible: draw red circles, green arrows, or maybe a purple smiley - it's up to you.
Drop the marker on the map, assign the issue to a group, take some photos, and relax - you will get the notification when the work is done. You can also further delegate tasks to subcontractors, and collaborate with other teams.
Use a different view to explore the entire documentation. You can see every relevant information in one screen, approvement status, files - and you can even have an insight to them. No more mess - just see your project as it is.
There are some types of alert to keep you informed. For example, you get a summary mail in a daily basis about your approvement to-dos. Supervisors can be sure that no one can unsubscribe from this.
We prefer to invite the designers to upload their files when they finish a drawing. But if you recieve a huge amount of plans and you need them to upload, we provide the perfect tools to make the mass uploads easy for you.
If you have document schemas for specific workflows - like material approvement - you can easily generate a document with your filled data - then the approvement process begins.
Folders, documents, and revisions - you can retrieve the QR code of anything. You can also print it in the corner of the uploaded PDF, so if your print from myPlan, you can check the status of the document with any smartphone.
myPlan.cloud has a lot more features, and our main principle is to keep it simple. We wanted to make a software that anyone is able to use. And we think we made a pretty good work - even using Facebook is much harder.
(It's a German word, means multilingualism.)
If you have customers or contractors from different countries - it's excellent. You are in the process of the international expansion! However, the work becomes much harder with the language barriers. Fortunately myPlan.cloud speaks more than 14 languages, so this task is done. But how does it work?
We distinguish two types of texts, therefore two types of translations are applied.
For software texts, like "logout", "add folder", instructions for mass document uploading, or anything else which is part of the myPlan user interface or notification emails.
The Google Translate would work fine for an amateur software, but we choosed to cooperate with a professional translation agency, who employs native technical translators across the globe.
So our wording will always be accurate, starting from the very first interaction with the software.
For user-created texts, like the name of a document, or some comments for revision approvements.
If you work on a project where there is a German customer, an English management, and some East-European constructors, you could be in trouble if you wanted to completely understand the whole documentation.
To handle this problem, we built in the automatic Google Translate functionality for the user-created texts to make the work easy. Of course it will never be perfect, but good enough to understand what's going on, and to find anything you look for in the documentation.
