5 Best construction QA software solutions for 2024

Any good construction QA software solution should offer the following benefits:

  • Prevention and early detection of defects and issues to reduce the cost of rework and delays.
  • Connected, real-time data for quick identification and rectification of issues.
  • Simplified management of compliance with industry standards and regulations.
  • Streamlined processes for issue resolution to speed up project timelines.
  • Centralised storage of all quality-related documents to ensure easy access and retrieval.
  • Detailed audit trails and accountability measures protect against liability and disputes.

While all construction QA software solutions are obviously designed for managing quality issues onsite, some fall short in terms of preventing quality issues from happening in the first place.

{Note: Our platform, Sablono helps prevent issues and fulfils the criteria above and much more. Schedule a demo here or continue reading to learn more.}

In this article, we review the top five construction QA software solutions for 2024. Here are the platforms we’ll discuss:

  1. Sablono
  2. Novade
  3. Autodesk Construction Cloud
  4. CONQA
  5. Visibuild


1. Sablono

First up is Sablono, and although it may sound biased, we’ve placed it first on this list for good reason.

While the other QA solutions on this list provide a good range of quality assurance capabilities, none feature the level of interconnectivity that Sablono provides.

Unlike most platforms that provide stand-alone quality capabilities, or multiple capabilities (i.e. progress, project management, quality, cost management) that are disconnected, Sablono connects quality within the wider workflow to provide a proactive approach to quality assurance.

Connecting quality to your activities allows you to ensure each activity has been carried out with quality standards in mind from the start. As you progress activities within Sablono, you’ll simultaneously document quality. This gives quality assurance in the moment, activity, by activity to prevent issues from occurring in the first place.

This approach is far superior to the traditional approach to quality which involves creating ad hoc, disconnected quality documentation, which often results in a lack of clarity around whether all your activities meet quality standards.

Sablono’s quality assurance software replaces reactive quality control with proactive quality assurance. Here’s a detailed breakdown of how it works:

1. Predefine your workflows in advance

Sablono provides incredibly detailed customisable workflows which can be tailored according to specific quality and compliance standards and your team’s unique needs.

With the ability to schedule and manage more than 200,000 activites, there is no other QA solution on the market that allows you to plan in such granular detail.

Define everything from the flow of trades, hold-points, roles and responsibilities and more. Pre-define codes and descriptions for all issue types to streamline the resolution of issues.

You can turn these workflows into reusable templates to quickly standardise best practices processes across your project.


2. Connect quality to your workflows

This is where the magic happens. Connect quality and compliance directly into your workflows.

Attach QA checklists to each of your activities and assign team members to ensure everyone understands the standard they should be working to.

You can even request photo documentation as evidence for each activity, request notes to provide extra context and embed management sign-offs where needed for extra peace of mind.

These workflows work to drive your processes while allowing you to simultaneously monitor quality.

Here’s a snapshot of how it works:

3. Document quality in the moment from the site

Traditionally quality is documented ad-hoc and any issues or snags identified are cleaned up at the end of the project. The issue with this approach is that not only do you not have confidence that every activity has been carried out with quality standards in mind, but you also waste time and resources rectifying issues that could have been prevented.

With Sablono, as you progress activities within the platform, you can report quality in real-time directly from the site by capturing notes and issues along the way to spot any discrepancies immediately.

Before trades can mark a task as complete, have them fill out a QA checklist with the required quality information in the Sablono mobile app.

To provide additional evidence, trades can also take photos on the go using their device and attach them to the corresponding activity or QA item in Sablono in moments. These are also geo-tagged which means you can easily identify the specific location where the image was originally taken.

Management is immediately notified that work has been submitted for review and can approve or reject work based on whether or not it meets the required standards.

This gives quality assurance in the moment rather than in hindsight, which helps you to actively prevent issues so you can get it right first time.


4. Automatically create detailed quality records for each activity

digital audit trail screenshot

As teams report in Sablono a fully accountable, connected digital audit trail of all quality-related data is automatically created.

This retrospective record of all quality data allows you to go back in time to understand the root cause of quality issues. From the trades that carried out the work to the attached QA checklists, notes, and reported issues – every detail is documented.

Improve accountability in your team with an undisputable record of 'who did what when?'. With a reliable source of truth that shows exactly what happened, you can easily address questions like "Which team member carried out the work?" and "Who performed the final check and gave the green light?".

This digital audit trail goes back for decades, and you can access and share it at any time to provide evidence of compliance and mitigate against claims.
