Novade vs Sablono

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

Why companies choose Sablono vs Novade

Novade and Sablono are two similar platforms, but what sets them apart?

Progress, quality and cost capabilities

Novade is a field management software that focuses primarily on progress and quality. 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. Novade does not provide commercial insights.

Project visualisations

Novade does not allow you to visualise how your project is progressing. Sablono allows you to integrate your design models or drawings or use built-in schematics to automatically visualise the status of your project.

Creating detailed work sequences

Sablono allows you to plan and manage more than 200,000 activities and predefine your workflows down to the individual level. Novade has progress and scheduling capabilities but the level at which you can plan and manage your activities is less detailed.

Visualising project progress

Sablono allows you to easily visualise how your project is progressing

visual tracker screenshot

Sablono's intuitive colour-coded tracker allows you to quickly understand the status at glance. In addition to this, Sablono features custom visual trackers that provide automated progress visualisations within drawings or schematics.

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.


Novade does not allow you to visualise progress

Novade features pin-to-plan which allows you to attach drawings to tasks and forms and mark them up to easily locate them onsite.

However, this functionality is mainly used for snagging and the platform does not include features that allow you to track progress like 3D models or visual trackers.


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.

Novade does not have commercial insights

While Novade provides insights around progress and quality, they do not currently have a commercial module.


Handling complexity

Sablono allows you to manage 200,000+ activites

activity timeline screenshot

Sablono allows you to transform your baseline into a detailed production plan and streamline the scheduling and management of more than 200,000 activities per project.

Taking your project activity by activity gives you unrivalled precision and visibility.

You can plan your workflows down to the most granular detail. Define activities, responsibilities and sign-offs. Add hold points, QA checklists and more.

Then, turn your workflows into reusable templates and easily replicate your best practices across your project. Standardise processes across your project portfolio to further boost efficiency.

Novade provides less detailed workflows

Novade has progress and scheduling capabilities but the level at which you can plan and manage your activities is far less detailed.

While you can create standardised sequences of works which includes elements like durations, dependencies and responsibilities, you cannot manage 200,000+ activities. It can be argued that this makes Novade less suited to more complex projects.

  •  “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."
