Crews can streamline communication on the worksite with Jobsite Unite, a new mobile and web-based communication platform that allows superintendents, foremen, project managers and workers to more effectively communicate, boosting safety and awareness.
The system works by allowing workers to check-in using tablets or smartphones, enabling location-based communication while creating a roll call. Users can view tasks or images, locate contacts and interact on projects.
The platform eliminates duplicate or mishandled data while reducing texts, emails and voice messages. The centralized platform promotes better workflow, ensuring a more productive job environment.
General contractors can purchase and set up individual Jobsite Groups, granting access to members of the project team. Users can sign up for free and create an account, which will then allow them to download Android and iOS versions of the application via Google Play or the App Store.
The dashboard allows managers to establish group profiles, monitor activity or discussions, post messages and send out real-time push notifications.
“Collaboration is the key to delivering projects on budget and on time,” says Jay Olsen, a professional finish carpenter who founded Jobsite Unite. “Combining all the jobsite communication into a single platform and including social media-inspired features that users are comfortable with increases the fluency of both management and jobsite personnel.”
