FieldChat is a communication software for the world's leading general contractors, subcontractors, and owners. It brings texting and paper chaos on jobsites into one centralized, organized, and searchable app.
With FieldChat, project managers and superintendents can more effectively communicate, coordinate, and collect information from subs – without making them download or learn anything new.
Information collected in FieldChat is auto-synced with Procore for improved site documentation.
To start using FieldChat, sign up for our 14-day free trial. From there, you can create your first project and conversation channels. Each channel is like a group chat about a particular topic, ‘Electrical’ for example.
Once you’ve set up your channels, you can start inviting your team members. With our integration to Procore, you can access existing project directories to make this process easier.
Depending on the type of user (foremen, superintendent, subcontractor) you can invite them to download the mobile app or simply send them a text from FieldChat. Managers are more likely to get value from the mobile app because of the increased visibility that it provides. Subcontractors are more likely to get value from texting because there’s nothing new to download or learn.
Once a user is invited to a channel they can start sending messages and photos using the mobile app or text.
You can even collect important information like Manpower Logs and COVID Assessments via text messages, helping you eliminate paper and save time chasing after subcontractors for data. The data is auto-synced with Procore for better site documentation.
FieldChat administrators have complete control over who has access to what. Every message and log is easily searchable, giving you peace of mind in the event of a dispute.
