It was 2006, and Kevin Priddy was working as a concrete general contractor and subcontractor. The work was good. But the networking and bidding process was tedious and time-consuming. Kevin thought, (as entrepreneurs always do): “There’s got to be a better way.”
So in 2009, Kevin teamed up with a couple of experienced contractors to simplify the construction bidding experience and make it easier for skilled construction professionals to connect. The first cloud-based software iteration was called EliteProNet and was created to facilitate project communication between general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers.
It was good, but they knew it could be better. It had to be.
In 2015, Kevin and Kyle Conlan launched PlanHub, a project management app which streamlined networking and communication by making it easy to connect with other professionals and build relationships — and by 2022 PlanHub evolved to be an end-to-end platform that simplified all of preconstruction. PlanHub now is a complete suite of tools, all in one place, for finding leads and projects, networking and collaboration, planning and managing projects and developing construction bids using tools like takeoff and bid leveling..
But we’re not done yet. Not even close. We’re working every day to innovate and expand our solutions to bring construction professionals across the nation together to make meaningful connections, simplify and streamline the way they work every day, and empower them to win more deals and build healthy businesses.
