We all know that running a profitable construction project requires a strong and coordinated team effort. What many people forget, though, is that it is impossible for teams to work well together without a clear and efficient line of communication. You can hold all the preliminary meetings in the world to solidify your plan, but it won’t matter when labor is on the jobsite. Problems arise, unforeseen obstacles are met, and when this happens those back in the office need a way to communicate with those on the field in a manageable format.
Of all the ways we currently communicate with each other, there is no doubt text messaging is most popular for ad hoc, right then and there messages from the jobsite, due to its simplicity. But are there limitations on the ability to organize text messages into coherent sets of information on the project?
FieldChat thinks there is, and in response has developed the ultimate text messaging platform for construction. FieldChat makes it easy to manage text messages across your construction team to keep everyone on the same page - reducing mistakes and wasted time. All project text messages and photos are automatically organized, saved and searchable by project.
You can set up your team to collaborate, share information and capture jobsite activity from any device instantly. FieldChat also integrates with construction management software like Procore and PlanGrid, and takes minutes to set up.
