What Is PlanHub and How is it Helping Contractors Better Manage Their Bid Process?

STACK + PlanHub

You may be wondering, what is PlanHub? PlanHub is a free, cloud-based application that allows general contractors to share project files and information with subcontractors. As one of the fastest-growing plan room and bidding sites, it is designed to help contractors easily find construction projects and utilize them in an intuitive and inexpensive lead format.

Since its creation, the business has focused on the standardization of organizational bid management software for subcontractors and general contractors. It has become a user-friendly construction app that general contractors can quickly check a few times daily for an update on projects they have posted or files they have shared with their subcontractors.

How does PlanHub benefit construction firms?
