Amazing Bid Software

Our company already has a large database of subcontractors, but PlanHub has brought us even more subcontractors to ensure that we are getting as much coverage as possible. The customer support is very helpful and very quick to respond if we may ever have any questions or issues.

Pros

You can see what subcontractors have viewed the drawings, what subcontractors have downloaded the drawings and what pages they have downloaded. PlanHub provides a platform for subcontractors to message GC's directly if they have any questions. Subcontractors can upload their bid directly to PlanHub.

Cons

Instead of having to open up a company's profile to see their contact information, their phone number/email should be listed when sorting through what subcontractors have viewed/downloaded the plans.

Response from PlanHub

Thanks for the positive feedback and thanks for using PlanHub!

User Review

Overall, for the price you might as well have Planhub. It is an additional tool to use that is extremely affordable no strings attached. We are happy with our software.

Pros

The software integrates well with how our sales and development team already function. It is similar to over lead generation and organizational tools we use so there was almost no learning curve.

Cons

Sometimes when we click on an invitation to bid on an email it doesn't transfer us directly to the project info on planhub.com instead it will take us to our main login page and we will need to find it through there.

Alternatives Considered

iSqFt for General Contractors

Reasons for Switching to PlanHub

ISqFt was very pushy and more expensive. There sales team seemed as if they were more interested in gaining a sale rather than pushing the product benefits. They down talked a few other softwares.

Plan Hub IS NOT FREE to subcontractors asking to bid on GC projects

All they want is me to sign up and pay to quote on the invitations to bid I receive.

Pros

Easy to use if you can get in without paying their enormous fee!

Cons

It cost money to bid on jobs I've been invited to bid on by the GC's.

No access to plans and specs.

A waste of time. Maybe if you paid them lots of money you will get more information about the project, but since they invited me to bid, I was expecting more than just the name of the project. I tried emailing them, but the email got bounced back. I am not sure if they are a real company.

Pros

seemed easy to use, but that was because, from what i could see, it did nothing.

Cons

It just showed the name of the project and what trades may be involved, but no information about the project. They sent me an email asking me to bid, but they had no plans or specs on the web site to base a bid on.

From a Sub-contractor

My take on plan hub.

I spend the time as a sub-contractor to create drawings, do my take offs, create and submit bids, and I never hear back from the GC's.

No "thank you," "your are in the running," "your price is too high," "in the park", nothing.
I now see a Planhub email and just delete it, even after unsubscribing.

The GC's send out invites knowing full well they have a "favorite" sub that they work with.
Planhub is just checking a box for the GC...

Pros

Ease of access to plans and downloads of documents.

Cons

Unknown status of submitted bids.
They are making me say more, so...
Why isn't there a status indicator letting me know my bid has been viewed.
Letting me know something.
