6 Best construction quality management software solutions

If you're looking for a construction quality management software solution, chances are, you need it to help you achieve the following:

  • Ensure and provide evidence of regulatory compliance
  • Centralise and store all quality data
  • Build with consistency
  • Reduce errors and reworks

But when there lots of different options on the market all claiming to do the same thing, it can be unclear which one will deliver and get you the results you need.

After working with hundreds of construction companies, across numerous different projects, we discovered that to achieve all the above, getting the following capabilities from your construction quality management solution is a must:

  1. Fully integrated quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) – Most quality management software solutions focus on QC, which is useful for addressing existing problems, but can't prevent issues from happening. The best solutions combine QA and QC, which enables you to identify root causes and prevent problems before they occur. This is the difference between proactive quality management and a more reactive approach.

  2. Connect quality directly to your workflow activities - Digitalising quality processes for the sake of digitalisation alone is rarely helpful. Instead, connecting quality to your activities allows you to ensure each activity has been carried out with quality standards in mind from the start, and makes it easy to locate issues when they do occur.

  3. Create a detailed, accountable digital audit trail - The best solutions don't just store quality data, but provide a traceable, accountable record of all project data down to "who did what when" to provide all-important evidence of compliance.

While all of the solutions we'll discuss are designed to help digitalise and streamline quality management, not all of them fulfil all the criteria above.

We created Sablono to solve this very issue. Sablono meets every single one of the criteria above to provide proactive, accountable quality management.

We'll also cover other quality management systems (QMS) in this post. Here’s the full list of the six best construction quality management software solutions we cover:


1. Sablono – Best for large, complex projects

Screenshot 2024-05-15 at 16.06.44

Sablono is first on the list of best construction quality management software solutions because, unlike many other options on the market, it offers interconnected quality assurance and quality control features.

This means Sablono by design does not just resolve quality issues - it prevents them from happening in the first place. Created to minimise defects, get to the root cause of quality issues and integrate quality directly into your workflows, the following features help Sablono users to get it right first time:


Quality assurance features: Prevent defects and errors and avoid reworks

  • Centralised digital platform (Manage all project data and workflows in a connected quality management system)
  • QA checklists (Attach digital QA checklists directly to workflow activities)
  • Quality Audit Trail (Create a fully accountable digital audit trail of all quality and compliance-related data)

  • Workflow templates (Build repeatable workflow templates with predefined quality standards for each activity)

  • Issue Templates (Build repeatable issues workflows to streamline issue resolution)

Quality control features: Gain full visibility and quickly rectify any issues that occur

We created Sablono to replace static quality management systems with a connected digital platform that brings all aspects of progress, quality and cost together so you always know how changes to one part of your project will impact other areas.

The platform allows you to plan your quality workflows at an unmatched level of detail – no matter your project size, complexity, type or industry.

Here’s a breakdown of our key quality features:

Centralised quality management system

Hero - 4 devices

Sablono isn't just a quality management system - it's a connected platform that brings together all aspects of progress, quality and cost for truly accurate project insights.

Unlike other siloed systems, everything is connected which means that if anything changes, you'll automatically know how this relates to the project as a whole, and how this, in turn, will impact other parts of your project.

For instance, if an issue occurs, Sablono automatically shows you exactly where in your workflow this happened and the specific activity it relates to so you can quickly resolve it. You'll also see which trade is responsible and how any sort of delay will impact your schedule so you can adapt accordingly.


QA Checklists

Real QA checklist

Sablono’s customisable QA checklists are designed to ensure that all required quality data is captured in one go, without the need for backtracking or rectifying later on.

Unlike other solutions, QA checklists can be attached to specific activities to embed predefined quality standards directly into your workflows from the start.

Clear standards ensure that every single activity is carried out in line with the requirements, reducing the chances of reworks and errors.

Plus, the ability to make the completion of QA checklists mandatory before trades can mark the task as 'complete' offers extra peace of mind around quality. 



Photographic Evidence

Upload photo

With Sablono’s Photographic Evidence feature, you can take photos on-site and directly attach them to your activities. This means you can provide tangible evidence of quality and standards being met - even while on the go. 

Plus, the added geo-tagging functionality ensures you always know exactly where each photo was taken, which is often required for compliance with building regulations.



Workflow Templates

granular detailed workflows

With our workflows and building sequences, you can outline every aspect of your quality workflows – from defining activities, responsibilities, hold-points, QA checklists, and more.

After this, you can turn these into reusable templates that allow you to standardise and quickly scale quality best practices across your project.

Creating detailed plans through predefined workflows enables you to manage quality proactively, leaving significantly less room for errors and reworks. 



Issue Templates

issue templates

Issue Templates help streamline your issue management process to ensure that your work always meets quality and compliance standards.

By creating reusable templates, you can define the essential questions trades need to complete when filling in notes. This ensures the right protocols are always followed and that issues are resolved quickly.


Quality Audit Trail

Quality audit trail details - no frame

Our Quality Audit Trail creates a retrospective digital record of everything that happens on your project. As trades complete QA checklists and attach notes, photos, documents and other quality-related information directly to activities, Sablono automatically compiles a comprehensive audit trail.

This transparent record showcases every detail of a project, down to the granular level of who completed a task, and when.

With an undisputable record of information, the Quality Audit Trail helps provide greater accountability across your team, and also serves as a powerful tool for claims mitigation.



Automated Handover Notifications

site notifications

Sablono makes updating trades on approvals and rejections easy. With Automated Handover Notifications, you can quickly let your trades know whether their work has been approved or rejected.

No more missed messages or confusion. Once work is marked complete in Sablono, trades will receive automatic notifications right to their devices. This helps keep your project processing and ensures everyone is in the loop about quality.

Activity Sign-off

   quality signoff

You can build Activity Sign-off into your workflows to make sure your management team always get a final look at work before it’s signed-off.

The moment work is ready, thanks to automated notifications, management can swiftly review and sign-off to ensure that all work meets the required standards.

Issue Sign-off

Enbed issue signoff

With Issue Sign-off, as soon as an issue is flagged by a trade, management automatically receives a notification. This means you'll never miss a beat when it comes to addressing and resolving any challenges that arise on your construction project.


Issue Lists and Reports

see all issues list

With Issue List and Reports, you can easily see and share all raised issues in one convenient place.

No need to try and remember when and where an issue occured – everything is automatically pulled into a single list. Use extensive filters to easily find the issues that are most relevant to you - from the team that carried out work to the specific area and so much more.

Quickly spot emerging challenges and export and share detailed issue reports with your project partners in moments to streamline issue resolution.



Mobile App

quality mobile

Sablono's Mobile App not only allows you to report quality directly from the site using your phone, but it also gives you access to real-time quality data.

With the app, trades can report work in the moment, ensuring that any issues or deviations from quality standards are addressed promptly.



Activity Tracker

progress tracking

With Sablono, you can manage 200,000+ activities in a connected platform. Sablono’s Activity Tracker allows you to finally gain real-time visibility into all construction activities happening on your site.

By replacing old, disjoined Excel trackers with a single source of truth, you'll receive updates in the moment, allowing you to stay on top of all quality measures and quickly address any issues that arise.
