PlanRadar adds QR codes to site data tool

By Catrin Jones07 December 2022

PlanRadar, a digital construction, real estate and facilities management platform, has added QR functionality to its site data management.

PlanRadar’s says that its integration with QR Codes allows users to simplify workflows and save time. QR Codes can be placed around a site to track location-specific issues or assets.

Users scan the QR code with their camera or the PlanRadar Mobile App and the linked Ticket (task/asset information) opens automatically. The company says that this makes it fast and simple to reference specific details while at a construction site or when maintaining facilities.

The new functionality is said to make it faster and easier to share information critical to a project’s success and can also drive more significant levels of communication and collaboration between teams, creating an audit trail of decision-making in the process.

The company adds that its platform allows users to decide the format they capture and report information, QR codes can be used for a variety of on-site workflows, including sharing key data on construction sites, tracking equipment, health and safety inspections, managing modular build deliveries, recurring maintenance and aligning fire stopping elements in ongoing checks.

Chief Product Officer at PlanRadar, Clemens Hammerl, says, “We strive to give our customers the best on-site experience, making it simple to get their day-to-day work done efficiently and correctly. Linking PlanRadar to QR codes is a natural fit – reducing the time it takes to retrieve information on a project site and ensuring everything is properly documented at the precise location.

“QR codes and NFC tags can both be used to make a wide variety of information accessible in real-time, and users can choose which format they capture and share information.”
