Having printed sets of plans readily available for review is a necessity at building sites and in many other architecture, engineering and construction situations. Plans on paper can be more easily examined by the project management team. The whole picture can be taken in at a glance and granular details can be focused on in relation to the full project scheme. While tablets and other devices are fantastic in many situations, sharp, crisp printed plans are often the preferred way to view schematics and read text.
Case studies now clearly document a single best way to print construction documents from anywhere in the world and have them delivered to anywhere in the United States within one business day. As a matter of fact, all Procore software users now have the advantage of printing and delivering construction documents on-demand, to anywhere in the country, using a seamlessly integrated app. And there’s some frosting on this cake: The cost is about one-third of what almost every conventional reprographics printer will charge for full-sized and half-sized plans. This saves a lot on printing!
GCs and subcontractors can easily get their construction documents printed and delivered right from their Procore dashboard when choosing to use the Plans4Less.com app available as their “print plans” option with flat rate pricing of $1 per sheet including full-sized (36” x 48”) plans.
FCI Constructors, Inc. of Colorado Springs, has been using Plans4Less.com with tremendous success. Upon opening his email one day, Will Kiser, FCI project engineer, got a message from one of his firm’s Colorado offices instructing everyone in the company to use Plans4Less to save money on printing plans. He notes, “Had an employee out of our grand junction Colorado office send out a company-wide email about you guys. The cheapest plan printing we have around Williston, ND is $3 a sheet, so it’s a no-brainer to order from you!”
Plans4Less prints any full sized black & white plans for a flat rate of $1 per sheet at any quantity and delivers them to any location in the United States by the next business day. Half-sized B&W plans are only 50 cents per sheet. Full color plans are also available with the same service at the lowest prices available anywhere.
FCI Constructors is extremely pleased with the service they’re getting, even at times from Plans4Less owner Brian Burke who likes to follow up with customers personally. During a recent conversation, FCI Project Engineer Will Kiser succinctly summed up this article’s main point. “Brian, what can I say? Plans4Less is amazing! You keep delivering crisp quality plans, even the big 36 x 48’s for a dollar a print and I keep thinking what a great find…! Then you get the plans on time to exactly where my guys need them at our various sites. Even the shipping costs are low! You guys get an A+ for overall value and I’ll even throw in a gold star for your can-do attitude!”
The integration of Plans4Less.com’s digital document printing service with Procore software provides Procore users a significant cost savings and an enhanced user experience. You can now find the Plans4Less app in the Procore App Marketplace.
It’s only natural for Procore customers to want and expect ease of use for an integrated construction document printing service as they move from their bidding phase into the project planning and management phases of the projects they win. Procore can potentially enhance their users’ experience, opening up to them the lowest costing, most efficient printing distribution system yet conceived.
Service integration innovations like Plans4Less.com keep construction technology on the cutting edge of customer experience advancements. Take it from leading construction technology leader James Benham, Founder & CEO of JBKnowledge, the creators of SmartBid.
During a 2016 discussion with Rob McKinney, the ConAppGuru, and Brian Burke, Mr. Benham describes how his company’s clients benefit with Plans4Less.com integration. “Believe it not, our users still use lots of paper and need hundreds of prints… and yeah, we have orders! We have customers using the product, saving money and getting better service.”
As long as plans are being printed, Plans4Less.com will continue to lead the way in providing cloud users with the best reprographics technology solutions available. We will always look for new and innovative ways to make the printing experience easier and more rewarding for enterprise software clients in the construction industry and beyond.
