          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.

          Rick Thompson

          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.

Ribbon Cutting

The phone rings, it is the lawyer for the construction company trying to get to the bottom of the issue, you take a deep breath and take the call.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony:

The day everyone on the project has been waiting for. The pictures, the big scissors, hard hats, suits, ties, dresses, and shiny shoes…just cut the damn ribbon. But it was a terrible experience, let’s just all smile and pretend like we are friends!

Then the awards, best project in class, trophies, and more “smiles”. This part isn’t shiny and smiley, uncovering what went wrong with the project. Construction defect claims, liens, and dread.

We have all been there, construction is the most unorganized, undocumented industry in the world. Litigation looms, bid rigging occurs, and you have no defense!

UNTIL TODAY.

Shelley and Dominick know this issue all too well in the industry. Dominick was the best-known painting subcontractor in Kansas City. He painted the town red, churches and casinos were his niche. In 2007, a heart-dropping call came. He had bonded a project for a million dollars, with the intent to do his best work. The contractor had told him they wanted him on the project, they had never worked with a company like his, said he was the best, and the contractor was so bold with him. Throughout the project, they would PDF pass him information, and he did his best to track, organize and deliver his trade. He was being put on notice that they were going to call his bond, and the GC was so sorry (truly). They did not intend to do this to him, they would help him all they could. His company finished the project and we lost over 500k. He closed his company, enough was enough.

They took that devastating loss to reinvent the industry!  Shelley and Dominick know there is a better way, they are on a personal mission to bring transparency, fair play, and accountability to the construction industry.

Every potential lawsuit involves pre-discovery, the cost of trying to find “the smoking guns” in the case. Millions of dollars are spent, countless hours wasted, silo dumping, all to try and find a needle in the haystack.  Instead, think about building that case from day one. Track all project info, including emails, audit-ready project delivery, inspections, submittals, RFI’s all because the document library is the most sacred part of the project. We have reinvented the industry and our third-party custodian is the most valuable lifesaver from day one! BUILD TO DEFEND!
