About PlanGrid

PlanGrid is a cloud-based construction document collaboration platform that allows plans and markups to be instantaneously shared with everyone on a construction project, no matter where they are.
It lets contractors and architects collaborate from their desktop or mobile devices across all their project plans, specs, photos, RFIs and punchlists.
It also has the capability of having old versions of the same drawing and will alert you when viewing an outdated drawing. This construction app offers a secure connection to upload, view and manager your online drawings.

About Google Drive

In Google Drive online storage users can keep photos, stories, designs, drawings, recordings, and videos.
All files in Drive can be reached from any smartphone, tablet, or computer, with possibility to invite others to view, download, and collaborate on a set of files.
The service works with Drive, Gmail and Google Photos, so it is possible to store files, save email attachments and back-up photos directly to Drive.
