Construction Document Management Software Made for Trade Contractors
Field Team Approved.
There is an ever-increasing number of project management tools, document storage platforms, forms, and documents that need to be completed. DADO takes the chaos and risk out of keeping up.
Automated Document Control Manager
Reduce your Admin Time & Errors
DADO’s cloud-based platform integrates with construction’s most trusted cloud platforms so you can keep using the software tools you love and ensure your field gets the latest information.
Whether your spec book is 100 or 1000 pages long, DADO will automatically break out spec sections making them easier to search and read.
DADO’s best-in-class Optical Character Recognition (OCR) scans the gnarliest layouts and even handwritten notes, making the entire content of your doc (yes, all of it) searchable.
DADO shows you exactly how many issues of a drawing you have and gives you the confidence your team needs to know you’re building with the right plan.
Auto Slip Sheeting
Not only will DADO AutoVersion your drawings, but your latest issue is AutoSlipSheeted to the front of the stack so your team sees it first.
FIND YOUR DOCUMENTS FASTER
You’re working across software platforms on every job. Files are saved in your local server, in your cloud storage platforms, and in project management software. Finding your digital construction documents is more challenging than ever and we built search features that retrieve what you need, the moment you need it.
DADO speaks the language of construction. It knows when you search “basement” that you’re looking for a plan that may read “Lower Level.” DADO finds hidden connections between documents, too. You may not know an RFI is connected to the piece ticket you just searched, but DADO does.
Voice or Text
Find your documents fast using a voice or text search- and don’t worry about your typos. DADO will auto-correct and find what you need. None of us became builders because we’re great at spelling.
Every single piece of text in DADO is connected with tags, related docs, and hyperlinks.
Drill down your search results with customizable Quick Filters so you can focus only on what you need.
Construction Collaboration Tools
SHARE WITH YOUR JOB SITE IN REAL-TIME
Unite your team on a single platform. Use tools like Markups, Compare, and Binders to quickly communicate changes and issues with your project team. Email or text a document out of DADO, add a note, and get the answers you need.
You love Binders. We love Binders. Stop lugging the heavy paper and plastic version around the site and go digital. Trust us, you won’t want to go back.
Industry-standard tools like clouds, lines, and highlighters to easily call out your notes and changes.
Got a question that needs a quick answer? Email or text your document right out of DADO. No proprietary file types here.
You will always get notified about every drawing change, right? Just in case you don’t, use DADO Compare to layer your old drawing with the reissue and be confident you caught every update.
“My guys are excited to use the voice search and fillable forms. That’s going to cut down a lot of time on their house, on their behalf to, getting more work done, in an eight hour day.”
Anthony Sant, Operations Manager with Fisk Electric
How your peers are getting the most from DADO
Reducing your Administrative Burden
Teach DADO to recognize layouts for your drawings and other common documentation for easy document ingestion and administration.

Organize and Distribute Information
Give your teams the information they need. All of the details, none of the fluff, so they can get the job done without adding confusion.

Frequently Asked Questions
DADO’s Document Management tools are used primarily by trade contractors such as electrical contractors, mechanical contractors, fabrication companies, and so on. Our tools are designed to support businesses of all sizes from multi-office large organizations to smaller businesses.
You should not need to hire additional administrators to get started in DADO. We have a suite of automation tools to import documents (Sync) and key in document information (templates) to set up and from there you just need to monitor for errors.
We support any document that you want to be able to access, search, and collaborate on within our system – you can have an unlimited number of document types. The main documents we see our customers use our system for are project drawings, shop drawings, specifications, submittals, training materials, and forms.
Yes – our administration tools use data in your documents, namely in the title block, to determine the version number so that your field teams are working on the most up-to-date information.
DADO serves based on commercial and large-scale residential projects. The more documents and version updates, the more DADO can help to keep those documents stay organized, easy to find and connected for your teams to build.
Absolutely. You can upload documents from previous projects, keep documents in DADO to reference post-construction, or choose to delete a project (if required by the contract). For documents in the system, those continue to have the full suite of tools used for pre-construction and during the construction phase.
Our collaboration tools have both a private and public setting so if your field teams just want to draw notes for themselves, we support that as well as shared mark-ups for everyone on the team.
