Free 14-day full-featured trial. Full access. No credit card required.
Get notified when pay applications require review
When a subcontractor submits a pay application, you’ll receive a notification email.
There are also indications throughout Planyard. This means that you can see pay applications waiting for approval under the project dashboard.
You will not lose any progress reports in your email mailbox anymore.
Quickly review and approve pay applications
Planyard enforces pay application comparison to estimated costs, previous commitments, and the contract. You can see all of this information displayed on the same screen.
You will see a warning if an expense exceeds the contract, commitment, or set goal.
The only thing you have to do is check whether what the subcontractor submitted corresponds to the actual monthly progress.
Double check pay applications with stakeholders
Send pay applications for an additional round of approval to site engineers, management, or accounting if needed. You can add an unlimited number of users to Planyard for free.
You will know exactly who has approved the pay application and who is still on hold.
If the approval didn’t go well, the subcontractor receives an email with a link to re-submit the pay application. You can also include a note of explanation with the email.
If you accepted the submittal, then the subcontractor will receive an email with a link to upload an invoice.
Approve invoices and keep budget automatically updated
You can open the subcontractor invoice and compare it with the original pay application in the same view with one click.
The whole pay application process from subcontractors submitting pay applications to approving the corresponding invoices takes just a couple of clicks.
This means that the budget, contract, change orders and pay applications are automatically updated. And all of this without you having to do any data entry.
Keep accounting automatically in sync
You just have to do your data checking and entry in Planyard. Approved invoices are sent to accounting automatically. The invoices are sent together with a document that shows the pay application for a better context.
Due to this, these pre-approved invoices reduce the amount of manual work for accountants greatly.

Our customers about us
“I wanted to escape the spreadsheets, escape the manual data entry, and look for ways to stay on top of the budget numbers. It’s challenging within a development company to keep on top of your numbers.
So I came across Planyard in a search to improve the budget management processes and, to make my own life easier.
Planyard does that, and it takes your project budget and puts it very clearly on screen for you so you have a live real-time picture of where your project budget is at any given point.”
Manager, Higgihaus Developments
“I have been working on cloud accounting tools like Xero and Quickbooks which are excellent, but they don’t have a specific construction-based costing tool.
Construction companies rely on expensive quantity surveyors and project managers to do a lot of data input on packages such as Excel which takes them away from focusing on value-added activities and driving the profit growth.
When I came across Planyard, I was relieved that there was finally a solution to this problem. Quotes, subcontract orders, purchase orders, invoices, progress bills, etc are put on the system and it’s linked directly to the budget, CVRs, subcontractors, and the suppliers. This is making people’s lives a lot easier. Data is at hand, it’s automated and it gets everyone away from the out-dated requirement to fill out spreadsheets.”
ACMA & CGMA, Director, Live Management Accounts Ltd
“I would say that Planyard is a great way to easily and conveniently track your job costs in one place. It keeps track of all of the documents and the numbers in one place.
If there’s some problem with the budget, it just tells you what you need to fix and you’ll be fine. It really just kind of thinks a step ahead for you.”
Partner, TITN Development
“We save four working days each month per project manager. The biggest efficiency booster came from getting rid of duplicate data entry.”
Head of Construction, Kaamos Group
“We wanted to know before a project finished whether we were going to make a profit or not. Planyard has allowed us to do that. We can see exactly which jobs are profitable and which ones are not, so that we can make changes on the go.”
