Touchplan had a lot to celebrate on its fifth birthday this week: a milestone of 10,000 users! As of Friday, August 17, the tool has seen over 10,000 construction and design professionals sign up. While it has been five years since Touchplan was first created, the company has been out of beta for only three years, and over that time has seen its user base double each year. The tool has been used on over 600 projects worth $21,999,748,919, and is currently in use on over $13,437,199,144 of active construction. To celebrate (and maintain velocity) the Touchplan team went for a high-speed boat ride around Boston Harbor on Codzilla.
“This is a huge milestone for Touchplan as a company, and it’s really exciting to see this amount of growth in our user base just three years out of beta. We’re very grateful to our users for helping us live our value of continuous improvement, and can’t wait to see what else they build using Touchplan,” said Touchplan’s President, Michael Carr.
Touchplan’s mission is to fill the technology gap in construction by creating specialized tools that everyone can use to improve efficiency and become more profitable. “We are building the future of construction through powerful technology, and what drives us is the satisfaction of helping our customers grow their businesses,” said Carr.
Touchplan is the only Lean way for project teams to easily execute the Last Planner® System by digitizing the old, analog process of sticky notes on the wall. Touchplan is a web-based, accessible-anywhere tool with a way to quantify and qualify areas for continuous improvement. Project teams can learn and use it within minutes of introduction and it also integrates with master schedules and creates constraint logs instantly. Designed for field planning and management, Touchplan serves everyone on the project team—from subcontractors, superintendents and project managers in the field, to project executives, architects and owners planning the build. As a division of MOCA Systems and with nearly twenty years of experience, it’s no wonder why eighteen percent of the ENR top 100 list are users of this unique, common-sense solution.
