SAN FRANCISCO, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PlanGrid, the leading provider of construction field productivity software, announced today the beta release of their native app for Microsoft Windows. PlanGrid for Windows is the first construction field app available natively on the Windows Surface. PlanGrid's release follows in the footsteps of Facebook, Box, and Netflix (as well as other Windows app partners), who have recently announced the development of Windows 10 apps.
"PlanGrid is an essential part of our business—enabling us to reduce blueprinting costs and to create better efficiencies in the field," said Michael Donaghy, Project Manager of Operations Business Systems at Structure Tone. "We're deploying the new PlanGrid Windows app to all current users to better facilitate access to construction documents, both in the field and the office. The introduction of the PlanGrid Windows App will allow our user community more flexibility around their choice of device to run PlanGrid."
With today's launch, construction professionals around the globe can access their project documents using iOS, Android, Windows, and on the web. With a large percentage of construction firms already on Windows and with Surface continuing to gain market share, PlanGrid is excited to invest in this budding platform.
PlanGrid's Windows beta app can be downloaded at www.plangrid.com.
PlanGrid is the world's most popular mobile construction app, with five times the number of downloads as its next largest competitor. Its cloud-based construction document collaboration platform has been used by major firms on more than 450,000 projects, including the new 49ers Stadium, and the Hudson Yards project in New York. Contractors, architects, and owners use PlanGrid to collaborate from their desktop or any mobile devices across project plans, specs, photos, RFIs, and punchlists. PlanGrid is funded by leading investors including Sequoia Capital, Tenaya Capital, Founders Fund, and Google Ventures.
