We’re excited to announce our new integration with PlanGrid®, a field collaboration solution that is part of Autodesk Construction Cloud and widely adopted across the construction industry for mobile productivity. The integration automatically updates users’ Change Order documentation in Clearstory when updates are made in PlanGrid Task, enabling construction teams to save time with manual data entry and avoid miscommunications and mistakes that can compromise project budgets.
“Even though automation and technology have transformed the construction industry in recent years, contractors still find themselves all too often managing change order communications by email, spreadsheets, or even pencil and paper,” said Cameron Page, Founder and CEO of Clearstory.
“The Clearstory solution streamlines Change Order communication so subs, GCs, and owners are on the same page financially at all times. Integrating with PlanGrid’s data-rich software is the next major step in our mission to modernize change order communication in the construction industry.”
Clearstory integrates with PlanGrid to seamlessly populate CORs and T&M Tags. Users can:
- Attach PlanGrid Task reports to Clearstory for efficient documentation.
- Convert PlanGrid Tasks into Clearstory T&M Tags instantly, generating a single PDF package with an automated title, description, and attached report.
- Present professional documentation for client signature effortlessly.
“Construction teams need real-time information from the field to maintain and communicate accurate change order information to all project stakeholders,” said James Cook, Head of Integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions.
“By capturing information about jobsite challenges on a mobile device in PlanGrid and automatically feeding the info in real-time to Clearstory’s CORs and T&M Tags, customers can maintain and communicate information accurately to keep all project stakeholders aligned.”
