Defect Management for Real Estate, Property Management and Construction
PLANFRED provides a range of features that streamline defect management on real estate, properties and construction sites. These features include the creation of defect lists, the assignment of defects to responsible parties, the tracking of defect resolution progress, and the generation of reports on defect resolution status.
Key Advantages of Digital Defect Management:
- Increased Efficiency
- Enhanced Transparency
- Cost Savings
- Improved Collaboration
- Reduced Errors
- Data Security
- Timely Project Completion
4 Simple Steps – Easy to Use:
Capture photos or videos of the defect on-site and provide a description. Assign the defect to the responsible person, set a deadline, and save it as a draft or publish it directly, even in offline mode.
Coordinate all queries and clarifications directly within the task using the built-in chat feature. All communication is chronologically stored in the task activities, ensuring clear documentation.
As soon as the construction defect has been eliminated, the responsible person reports directly in Planfred that the affected service is free of defects. In the course of this, documentation photos or type sheets, expense records and similar can be attached.
If an inspection shows that the defect still exists, the task can simply be set to the "open" status again.
Billing technicians have all the necessary information for accurate billing conveniently located within the respective tasks. This includes details such as additional client orders, direct labor effort data, performance, acceptance photos, type sheets, and more.
Please note: The use of ‘offline mode’ enables defect recording even without an active internet connection.

Limited functionality: Excel has limited customization options compared to specialized defect management software like PLANFRED. It lacks features such as automatic notifications, real-time updates, and comprehensive reporting.
Collaborate challenges: Collaborating effectively with Excel spreadsheets can be difficult, leading to versioning issues, conflicts, and potential data loss.
Data management limitations: Excel lacks robust data management capabilities, making it challenging to organize, filter, and search defect data efficiently.
Digital or mobile defect management refers to the utilization of digital or mobile technologies to support the process of identifying, documenting, tracking, and resolving defects in a project or organization.
Compared to traditional defect management methods that rely on manual recording and tracking of defects using paper or Excel spreadsheets, digital or mobile defect management offers numerous advantages.
For instance, can defects be directly recorded and documented on-site using a mobile device? Yes, with digital or mobile solutions, defects can be efficiently recorded and documented on-site, saving time and effort while reducing the likelihood of errors.
Additionally, these solutions enable effective collaboration and communication among team members, as real-time access to defect information is available from any location.
