          About MySmartPlans

          Shelley and Dominick Armato

          Shelley is the Founder and CEO of MySmartPlans. Her husband Dominick is Co-founder and President. They suffered firsthand the effects of chaos in the industry. Dominick, a 45-year contractor, was wildly successful and one project with insufficient data caused them to shut the doors on that company. But they rose again and reinvented the construction industry by streamlining the business.

          MySmartPlans is a software-as-a-service solution with an experienced digital information librarian as part of your team, who creates transparency, organization, and efficiency in construction projects. They are the driving force behind Data Governance, which mitigates the risk associated with insufficient document oversight. MySmartPlans has been improving the industry for 16 years and has a revenue aggregate of over 19 billion dollars. Build on time, on schedule, and with audited as pre-discovery files that are proven to prevent litigation!

          MySmartPlans has saved thousands of hours in costly rework and has allowed us to collaborate with our team members in the most efficient manner possible.

          Craig Childers

          MySmartPlans helped us focus on the project rather than collection of data & documentation. The MSP team knows what needs to be included and does a great job gathering, managing and ensure timey responses on required information. It also gives us a centralized location for project documentation, giving us comfort of knowing where to find information in the future. MSP allows us to work smarter and be smarter.

          Technology has made promises over the years that someday we would all be paperless and all electronic, but there has been a missing link in sharing information between groups. MySmartPlans is the medium that fills that gap.

          As a construction litigator…to be able to point and click and find the documentation that relates to that specific change order, whatever, in seconds as opposed to days or weeks manually would be a game changer.

Dear Reader, Build to Defend

Published in the Airport Improvement Magazine Winter 2022

Dear Reader,

You might or might not have heard of me and my company MySmartPlans.

I’m a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a woman on a mission.

I’m willing to have challenging conversations. In 2006, after 40 years as the largest subcontractor in Kansas City, my husband Dominick came home to tell me of his biggest challenge. My husband is Mr. Kansas City, and everyone knows him. He painted our city red. He painted heaven(churches) and hell (casinos), and state capitols. You name it he knows the color and the skeletons in the closet.

In our first discussion, he shared why he carried 2 cell phones, and a pager, and was always on edge. The stories go on and on about the deals he had to make to support his projects, the paint he was asked to provide for executives, and the general contractors.

I was saddened, compassionate, and could not believe what I heard.

My first question was how to finish his last job and move forward? One million dollars later I declared, I am going to do something about this that will allow everyone to have fair play, transparency, and accountability. His company closed, third-generation artisans.

I started investigating, who is responsible for this? Reprographic company? General Contractors (GC)? Who?

I then purchased reprographic equipment out of a garage, started getting orders, and learned that documents were NEVER complete, missing information, chaotic, and full of confusion.

You might think who is her target? I bet the general contractor loves her keeping everything organized with her solution.

NOPE, I’ve been called names you can’t even pronounce or spell, and I’ve been the topic of many discussions in the boardroom, what to do with me? I make sure things are transparent in a project, and some GCs would rather squander profits. I get in their way.

GCs are upset about how they can’t find subs. They put them out of business, THEY have singlehandedly created their biggest challenge. No longer will it be acceptable to trick subs into doing business with them, low bid will be a fair bid, and bid-rigging will be a thing of the past.

Finally, owners will regain their peace of mind, keep their positions, and most importantly reclaim their life.

If this offends you, I have done my job, if YOU thought you would never need my solution you are one of the problems. If you for the first time want to be the one in the room that knows what is going on, call me! Yes, I am that CEO who answers the phone, I am that CEO who believes in humanity, I believe in people over profits, and I know the secrets of the trade.

I saved over 20 million dollars for just one client. Have stopped corruption on many projects, and your project is next!!
