Orlando, Florida-based RedTeam Software, a cloud-based construction management software provider, has announced a new app called TeamPlayer. The app facilitates subcontractor collaboration by making it easier for all team members to access and respond to critical documents and transactions, resulting in more efficient communication, reduced risk, greater accountability, increased compliance and an overall improved subcontracting relationship.
The app is free for subcontractors, granting them instant access to documents shared with them via RedTeam’s project management software. Subcontractors can view the status of their contracts, change orders, credentials, lien waivers, submittals and punch items. Users can also share day-to-day performance updates in real time and check in and check out at project sites based on their location.
The app also addresses construction billing pain points. Improperly prepared or nonconforming applications for payment slow down cash flow and require costly administrative intervention to make corrections. Using TeamPlayer’s Electronic Applications for Payment (eApps) streamlines the subcontractor invoicing and payment process and are simple to create.
“The success of construction projects depends largely on the collaboration and communication between and amongst contractors and subcontractors,” says RedTeam’s CEO Michael Wright. “Updates to a project’s plan or unforeseen delays can change the trajectory of a project quickly. We created the app as a solution that is free for subcontractors to use as part of a contractor’s use of RedTeam, helping entire projects to remain on schedule and on budget.”
TeamPlayer is available to be activated to RedTeam’s cloud-based construction project management software. Subcontractors can download and use the app for free or upgrade to a paid subscription to maintain protected access to the documentation they are collaborating on and access administrative controls.
The company says that over the weeks and months to come, TeamPlayer will incorporate many new functionalities, such as field change order management, project check-in and subcontractors’ daily reports.
