Why Touchplan?

Delays are a persistent problem in the construction industry – without proper software for construction planning and with little project certainty. You need to get your project completed— on time the first time.

CONSTRUCTION PLANNING CHALLENGES

Delays are a constant problem in construction–you must meet your deadlines.

Everything Keeps Slipping

  • Labor shortages, material availability, and rework cause your schedule to slip
  • Reliable promises are difficult to come by.

Hard to Collaborate

  • Between subs and material suppliers
  • With other stakeholders – owner and architect

No Project Insights

  • Lack of visibility of problems building on the jobsite
  • You can’t improve what you can’t measure
  • Management can’t see cause of delays

Wasted Time… Waiting

  • Jobsite not ready
  • Missed hand-offs
  • Rework

Your alternatives look bleak!
