Competitive Advantage

Unlike other messaging apps, FieldChat supports text messaging. This means that subcontractors and less tech savvy team members can stay included in the conversation simply by sending/receiving texts. Nothing new to download or learn.

Impact on Construction

FieldChat gives my office teams complete visibility over what's happening on a job site without needing to be there. They can jump into conversations in real time, communicate with individuals or groups on a site, and catch mistakes before they even happen.

Good for Project Managers

With FieldChat, all communication on a job site happens in one place. Conversations are centralized, organized, and searchable - resulting in more transparency, less mistakes and rework, and simplified dispute 

Good for Superintendents

The Final Word

FieldChat provides an important, time-saving tool for project managers, superintendents and team leads across the construction industry. As project sites increase in manpower, communicating with field personnel can become an all-day chore, creating risk exposures around every corner. With FieldChat, however, construction leads can quickly and effectively organize, communicate and store text message threads with their project teams from their desktop or phone. Whether it's texting the project's electricians, foremen, or the entire jobsite, project leads now have a powerful tool for getting their message across, in real-time. And with advanced features such as chat history, activity logs, access control, and integrations (with Procore, PlanGrid, and BIM360), Blue Collar Labs believes that FieldChat should be one of the first tools a superintendent puts in his/her tech toolbox upon project mobilization.
