The better QA system


Dalux vs Sablono

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

Why companies choose Sablono vs Dalux

Progress, quality and cost capabilities

Dalux is a BIM viewer that provides insights around quality. Sablono is a construction project management software solution that connects progress, quality and cost to provide accurate insights and true visibility across your project.

Workflows connected to QA

With Sablono you can ensure quality by creating predefined QA checklists that are assigned to each of your workflow activities in advance. Dalux provides QA checklists but does not have workflows, so any QA checklists created are not connected to a wider workflow, acting as a more reactive approach to quality management.

Planned vs Actual

Sablono's Planned vs Actual Dashboards allows you to see how you're performing against your plan so you can adapt accordingly to deliver on time. Dalux does not have progress or workflow capabilities, so it cannot show you how you are performing against your plan.

Commercial insights

Dalux does not provide commercial insights. However, with Sablono, you can access accurate commercial insights to help you avoid payment disputes, manage your costs and streamline payment valuation.

Connecting your project data

Sablono integrates time, quality and cost

project overview

Sablono integrates time quality and cost in a single connected platform to provide accurate project insights.

Everything is connected which means that when anything changes in your project, you'll automatically know how this will impact the other parts of your project.

For instance, say an issue occurs, Sablono automatically shows you how this is reflected in the overall progress so you can take action and resolve it before notifying the next trade to begin work.

You'll also know exactly what each trade needs to be paid since costs are linked directly to reported progress.

Sablono also connects QA checklists directly into your workflows so you can ensure each activity has been carried out with quality standards in mind and easily locate issues when they do occur.

This allows you to:

  • Drive progress with ease and visibility.

  • Keep quality consistently high and stay compliant.

  • Make on-time, accurate payments and empower data-driven decisions.


Dalux focused on quality only 

Dalux is focused on streamlining quality and does not provide progress or cost capabilities.

It acts as a BIM viewer that allows you to place tasks and capture defects within a 3D model to help you manage project information more easily.

Quality checklists and templates can be created, but as Dalux do not have workflows, these are not connected to a wider workflow.

At the end of the project, this lack of connected quality assurance also makes it hard to determine if you have all the required data to meet quality standards.

Proactive vs reactive project management

Sablono allows you to plan your workflows down to the smallest detail

workflow screenshot

Sablono allows you to pre-plan everything to turn your baseline into a detailed production plan.

You can standardise your repetitive workflows with customisable building sequences. Break down your project into all its elements, define your custom sequences of activities per element type, and connect these sequences into a single digital production model.

Easily predefine the flow of trades, responsible companies, durations, quality checks, sign-off procedures and more. 


Dalux is focused on ad-hoc project management

Dalux does not provide planning capabilities, so you cannot predefine your building sequences or workflows.

You can create tasks and quality checklists but as mentioned earlier, these are not connected to a wider workflow and serve more as ad-hoc solutions.

Overall, this means that Dalux provides a more reactive approach to project management rather than a proactive one.


Getting accurate commercial insights

Sablono provides accurate commercial insights

cost group 2 (1)

Sablono provides accurate commercial insights by linking costs directly to your site activities to provide 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.


Dalux does not have commercial capabilities

As Dalux is focused on quality, the system does not currently provide commercial insights.

Knowing how you're performing against the plan

Sablono has features Planned vs Actual capabilities

planned vs actual screenshot

Sablono allows you to automatically generate S-Curves and Planned vs Actual analysis to understand delays and their implications. Connected workflows allow you to see how changes will impact other parts of your project so you can adapt accordingly.

Track your run rate against the plan based on accurate progress data and use these insights to optimise your performance. Quickly detect who's falling behind so you can take action to fix it.


Dalux doesn't have Planned vs Actual capabilities

Dalux's lack of workflows means they don't have planned vs actual capabilities since there is no progress data to compare.

  •  “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."
