FieldChat launches Embedded App on the Procore platform and announces automated photo uploads

Posted by FieldChat on Oct 2, 2019 9:32:51 AM

Today, Procore announced Embedded Experience, a new way for partners to create high impact construction apps called Embedded Apps. We’re pretty stoked about this seamless experience. For the past six months, FieldChat has been one of the selected partners that has been working closely with Procore’s product team - along with support from our mutual customers - to help ensure it’s ready for broad adoption.

With FieldChat’s Embedded App, Procore admins can easily search, install, and manage access to FieldChat. In a few clicks, admins can find FieldChat on the Procore App Marketplace, install it, and make it available to your users right inside the Procore web interface for any of your projects. Anyone in the project, including subcontractors, owners, project managers, superintendents and foremen, can then be easily added to one or more FieldChat group chat channels, and easily communicate with everyone via the Procore web interface, the FieldChat mobile apps or text messages.

FieldChat launches an integration with PlanGrid to manage jobsite communications

Posted by FieldChat on Sep 23, 2019 10:28:52 PM

Last week, we released an integration that makes it super-easy for PlanGrid customers to add FieldChat to their projects. FieldChat reduces wasted time and rework on jobsites by facilitating real-time communication. Anyone on the construction team, including subcontractors, owners, project managers, and general contractors’ superintendents and foremen can easily be added to one or more FieldChat group chat channels and send text messages to all of their colleagues using a web browser or the FieldChat mobile apps. Subcontractors in particular value FieldChat's ease-of-use because they can receive messages through their normal text messaging app without having to download or learn a new technology every time they join a project team.

We’re excited about making FieldChat easily accessible to PlanGrid customers because communication on the jobsite can typically be the Wild West - a mishmash of text messages, phone calls, emails and in-app communications. FieldChat provides a universal instant messaging solution that allows anyone from any company working on a project to communicate with zero barriers, powering the kind of rapid, informal communication that fuels effective coordination, collaboration and issue resolution.

Teams can immediately start using FieldChat to enable instant communications on their projects by downloading the FieldChat app and then simply signing up with their PlanGrid login and importing projects. They can then decide what group chats - called “channels” - that they want to establish for the project. Each trade might be put into their own separate channel with a dedicated phone number so they can easily communicate across the team simply by texting messages and pictures. Superintendents and foremen might have another channel just for communication between them. The team can also establish additional channels according to the needs of the project, such as for safety, permits, quality or owner communication. Any user in a PlanGrid project can be easily added to any channels.

If you are a PlanGrid user, and want to try out the integration, sign-up for free here. We hope you like it!
