Touchscreen Technology for Plan Reviewers

Are you feeling limited by your current outdated monitors? Ditch those tired, old clunkers and focus on a world of crisp, vibrant displays that keep pace with your every move. Ready to take your work to the next level? Embrace the latest advancements in touchscreen display technology and ergonomics to elevate your work efficiency and experience to new heights.

Plan reviewers play a crucial role in the construction industry by ensuring that building plans and drawings comply with the latest building codes and regulations. They are responsible for thoroughly examining the submitted plans and specifications to ensure that they meet the necessary standards for safety, accessibility, and structural integrity.

However, reviewing construction plans can be a daunting task, especially when dealing with complex designs and detailed drawings. Many plan reviewers are still working with older methods and technology, and find themselves dealing with stacks of paper-based submissions, which can lead to errors in interpretation and increased processing time.

Moreover, the use of paper drawings adds further complications – misplaced drawings, missing pages, time to flip through pages and locate what is needed, etc. The challenges associated with plan review can ultimately lead to costly mistakes during construction, as well as project delays.

Touchscreen technology

To mitigate these challenges, there is a growing need to introduce modern collaborative software and tools that enable plan managers to easily access and share documents, provide real-time feedback, and ensure that everyone is on the same page. By leveraging these new technologies, plan reviewers can streamline the review process, reduce the risk of errors, and ultimately improve the quality and safety of the buildings being constructed.

At iPlanTables, we’ve designed our workstations’ touchscreen technology specifically for plan reviewers. Our workstations are designed to make reviewing plans as simple as possible. They are easy to set up and maintain so that you can concentrate on your job faster than ever.

Touchscreen Technology Benefits

By incorporating iPlanTables workstations, which utilize advanced types of touch screen technology, for plan reviews, you can keep all relevant plans, codes, and specs in one place using our multi-monitor setup design and avoid losing anything in the shuffle. This will make the review process more efficient and organized, saving you time in the long run.

More Screen Real Estate

Let’s say you have an Excel spreadsheet. It’s a big one, with several columns and rows, so you’ll need a big window to navigate it – a 1920 X1080 pixel window. This Excel window would take up the entire screen on a Full HD 1080p monitor with a 1920X1080 resolution.

If you’re a multitasker, this is inefficient. Minimizing and maximizing the Excel window every time you switch to and from another program quickly becomes inconvenient, slowing your productivity.

More pixels are available on a 4K monitor than on a 1080p one. This enhances the user experience by giving you significantly more screen real estate to work with. For example, you could fit four of these 1080p windows into each quadrant of a 4K monitor.

Alternatively, you could place the Excel spreadsheet on one large wide-format monitor, your email on a smaller side monitor rotated to portrait mode, your code book on another side monitor, and even your calendar in landscape mode on another.  This allows you to load all your programs on multiple screens eliminating the need to switch between windows on one monitor.

Less Scrolling, Zooming, and Alt-Tabbing

iPlanTables workstations are designed to improve your workflow. iPlanTables touch technology provides interactive workstations that allow you to easily view and edit plans without all of the scrolling, zooming, panning and alt-tabbing that comes with working with separate files.

With iPlanTables, plan reviewers can drag and drop images into place, insert notes directly onto the plan and add annotations wherever they need them. Plus, you’ll always know who’s working on what and when it’s been completed.
