San Francisco, CA – October 16, 2019 – Rafters Inc., a company owned by construction veterans and Silicon Valley nerds, is proud to announce the launch of its construction collaboration and alert platform. The SMS platform makes job sites safer and more efficient by allowing general contractors to instantly message workers on their job site. They can notify them of safety concerns, phase completions, inspection appointments, and so on.
Commenting on the launch, a spokesperson for the company said, “Rafters, Inc. is thrilled to announce the general availability of our construction collaboration and alert platform. Our mission is to make every job site safer and more efficient through our SMS alert platform.”
The number of construction employees, as well as contractors working on projects, continues to rise. As this shift towards a mobile workforce takes place, employees need to be constantly informed, no matter where the construction site is located. Rafters’ platform is used to send SMS text messages to all workers on a construction site.
With the SMS platform, users can organize a project’s contacts by groups. They can further organize groups however they want – based on trades, subcontractors, building phases, location breakdown structure (LBS), and so on. With respect to notifications, users can target the text message recipient by channel, subcontractor, location, or custom group. Furthermore, users can send updates on materials, phase completions, emergency situations, and more.
Rafters’ SMS (text message) alert platform is breaking down the walls and communication barriers that are common on construction projects. It automates handoffs between project team members, improves stakeholder accountability through performance visibility, and enables notification alerts on project progress thereby enhancing project smoothness.
Rafters SMS (text message) alert platform is an easy-to-use construction collaboration and communication platform that makes workplace communication faster and more effective than ever before. Imagine a job site where alerts, updates, and instructions are provided to the appropriate workers – without the hassle of installing another app on everyone’s phone. The good news is that the Rafters platform is project-based, so no more worrying about per-user fees.
Rafters, Inc.’s vision is to connect general contractors and construction workers, empower them to collaborate and plan their work, and provide all stakeholders access to real-time data that improves their ability to deliver construction jobs efficiently.
