You can use it to keep track of all the important details and files about your project. Take pictures of the progress, keep track of selections and materials you're using, and unlike other file management software, Digs enables you to attach specific details or finishes directly onto the floor plan. 

 Effective organization systems ensure you and your clients communicate efficiently  and keep everyone involved on the build up to date. With Digs, all project information is stored in the cloud, allowing anyone on their mobile device or computer to access important project information at any time.
