FieldChat is a messaging app purpose-built for general contractors and their subcontractors / specialty contractors. It turns texting chaos on jobsites into centralized, organized, and searchable conversations. It works on every device – laptop, tablet, and smart phone – and supports text messaging, so that subcontractors and less tech–savvy users don't have anything new to download or learn.
FieldChat transforms texting chaos into an organized project view.
Instantly send messages, documents, and images to anyone working on a project –even to individuals that only use text messaging. Now you can get everyone communicating together regardless of the type of phone or apps they use.
FieldChat automatically notifies individuals about new messages based on their preferences – via text, app notifications, or on their desktop. The app summarizes unread messages by project and channel so you can focus on what's important.
The FieldChat app provides an inbox for all your instant messages, organized by project and channel – making it easy to understand what’s new and who is informed. You can also easily search conversation history, photos, and documents.
Troubleshoot and make decisions faster by sharing information across silos.
General contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and owners can share information, logs, pictures and documents in two-way messaging channels. Workers can self-enroll in broadcast channels by scanning a QR code, in order to receive site-wide messages or alerts.
Who can see what is strictly controlled by channel and project administrators. People can easily be notified about a conversation by @tagging them. FieldChat also integrates with construction management software, allowing for a single sign-on experience.
FieldChat is extremely easy to use and works with any device. Team members can download the app on their phone or simply send text messages to stay included in the conversation.
Increase transparency, keep teams aligned, and resolve disputes with a minute-by-minute permanent record of every conversation.
Easily capture jobsite activity the moment it happens. Document progress, deliveries, subcontractor work, inspections, testing, safety, and more. Automatically publish any type of log to messaging channels – keeping everyone informed.
Track every activity that happens on a jobsite. Perfect for invoice reconciliation, dispute resolution, and pulling together daily reports. Every message, conversation, photo, log, and document is easily searchable.
Configure the specific activities you want to track on your project (job progress, deliveries, inspections, subcontractor activity, small purchases, safety violations, etc.)
If you're a project manager, superintendent, or owner, we recommend using FieldChat on your web browser (Chrome and Firefox for example), or by downloading our mobile app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store. This gives you better visibility and control over your messaging channels, conversations, and users.
FieldChat also supports text messaging, meaning that you can send and receive text messages directly from FieldChat. Great for subcontractors and less tech savvy users, because they can stay included in the conversation without having to download or learn anything new.
Think of 'channels' as organized group chats about particular topics on a jobsite, e.g. Electrical, Plumbing, Framing, etc. Channels are where general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and owners share messages, logs, pictures, and documents – keeping communication on a jobsite organized. You can customize channels to meet your needs and control exactly who has access to each channel. Channels are essential to maintaining good communication on a jobsite.
