Asta Connect vs Sablono

When it comes to planning and overseeing your projects, which construction management solution is best for your company?

Why companies choose Sablono vs Asta Connect

Progress, quality and cost capabilities

Asta Connect is a planning and scheduling software that helps you connect the right people with the plan. Sablono is a construction project management software solution that connects all aspects of progress, quality and cost to provide accurate insights and true visibility across your project.

Commercial insights

Sablono allows you to cost-load individual activities to provide accurate commercial insights that help you avoid payment disputes, manage your costs and streamline payment valuation. Asta Connect's cost module works on the high-level schedule only which provides less detailed commercial insights.

Project visuals

Asta Connect provides essential planning and scheduling visuals, but lacks the ability to provide 3D models and schematics. Sablono allows you to integrate your design models or drawings or use our built-in schematics to automatically visualise the status of your project.

You can also use Sablono's robust scheduling capabilities to predefine your building sequences, keep everyone working to the same schedule and plan down to the smallest detail.

Some key progress and scheduling features include:

  • Activity Tracker: Replace disjoined Excel trackers with a single source of truth. Report progress in-the-moment and receive real-time progress updates. 

  • Workflow Templates: Capture processes in reusable templates and plan your workflows down to the most granular detail. Define activities, responsibilities and sign-offs. Add hold points, QA checklists and more.

  • Automated Handover Notifications: Automated handover notifications are sent to trades' mobile devices to let them know that work is ready to start.

  • Look-Ahead Planning: Update your look-ahead plan for the upcoming days, weeks and months based on reliable and highly granular progress data.

  • Baseline Scheduling: Transform your baseline into a detailed production plan and streamline the scheduling of more than 200,000 activities per project.


Asta Connect provides useful but less comprehensive progress and scheduling features

Asta Connect is a collaborative task management tool that simplifies complex projects by connecting the right people with the plan.

It allows you to create tasks within a high-level schedule. Then, you can go in later and attach a more detailed plan to the individual activites within your high-level plan.

Its key progress and scheduling features include:

  • Scheduling: Create robust schedules in moments.

  • Planning: Import your organisation’s overall master programme.

  • Planned vs Actual and Dashboards: Track your progress against your plan to see how you're performing.

  • Centralised digital system: Manage to-do lists, assign teammates, identify dependencies, and set deadlines to keep the project on track.

  • Automated notifications: Automate team collaboration through system-generated notifications.



Visualising project data and progress

Sablono allows you to easily visualise how your project is progressing

In addition to Sablono's intuitive colour-coded tracker that allows you to quickly understand the status at glance, Sablono also features custom visual trackers.

You can upload your floorplans, elevations, drawings or building models to build visualisations tailored to your unique project.

This allows you to visualise your project as it progresses in real-time. See Intuitive status visuals across all your packages - from fitout, facade, pods and more.


Asta Connect has limited project visuals

Asta Connect features colour-coded tasks with a timeframe that allows you to see the status of works. However, it does not have visual aspects like 3D models or visual trackers.


Streamlining quality

Sablono provides end-to-end quality management capabilities

Sablono provides robust quality assurance and quality control features that allow you to not only fix issues - but also put measures in place to prevent issues from happening in the first place.

With Sablono, you can create quality workflows before you even begin works to ensure compliance. Predefine everything from the flow of trades, hold-points and QA checklists, roles and responsibilities and more.

You can make sure issues never go unnoticed by reporting all your quality data in one system. Attach digital QA checklists directly to your activities and have trades complete these along with attaching relevant notes, documents and photos. You can even embed management sign-off into your workflows for extra peace of mind.

Sablono also provides an automated quality audit trail that provides a full retrospective view of your project down to the smallest detail of "who did what when". This allows you to spot patterns and understand the root of quality issues so you never make the same mistakes twice.


Asta Connect does not have quality capabilities

As Asta Connect is primarily a planning and scheduling tool, it does not have any quality capabilities. This of course means that you cannot add issues, photos, checklists or anything of the like.


Getting detailed commercial insights

Sablono provides granular commercial insights

cost group 2 (1)

Sablono provides accurate commercial insights by linking costs directly to your individual site activities to provide detailed insights into what the status of your project means for your finances.

You can assign a budget to all your work packages and activities to clearly monitor budget consumption so you can stay on track.

Sablono also allows you to see forecasted upcoming costs for your project based on your programme. Because all your progress, quality and cost data is connected in Sablono, you’ll receive accurate predictions based on real project data.

You'll also always know who needs to be paid what. By assigning costs to work packages and activities, Sablono automates commercial valuations and payment application processes for individual packages, contractors, material suppliers and more.


Asta Connect provides less granular commercial insights

With Asta Connect, you can also access commercial insights, however, unlike Sablono which allows you to cost-load individual activities, Asta Connect's cost module works on the high-level schedule only.

Simply put, this means that the commercial insights you get are less detailed and therefore less helpful when it comes to planning your costs and payments.

  •  “Sablono is very useful for tracking on-site progress and predicting and forecasting the potential impact of any delays that occur. It’s a helpful tool to quickly assess the amount of work that has been completed in a given period by any individual trade.” 

  • "Sablono is a truly collaborative working platform which enables multi-user live updates providing real-time progress reports. The biggest benefit of Sablono is when used with a repetitive work stream." 

  • "Intradepartmental tools for progress tracking are no longer used, instead a unified and official tracking system powered by Sablono enables us to take a major step towards digitalization."  

  • "My favourite part of Sablono is the way it keeps a record of handovers. It is very efficient to carry out a handover walk on site, sign a sheet, complete the QA checklist on my phone and attach the signed sheet on the app."
