RedTeam Software: Social Project Management Bridges Communication Gaps in Construction

Michael Wright, Co-Founder & CEO
It is no secret that nearly all conflicts in the construction space are a result of miscommunication or misinformation. Even though construction companies expend significant resources on project management, the most popular software applications are often too narrowly focused on contract compliance, financial management and documentation, instead of the more immediate purpose of daily communication and collaboration among project participants. Having been commercial contractors themselves, the founders of RedTeam Software saw an opportunity to develop construction project management software optimized first and foremost as a tool for communication and collaboration, from which project documentation could be captured as a result. Viewing communication and collaboration as fundamentally “social” processes, RedTeam looked to popular social platforms for inspiration. Indeed, Facebook and LinkedIn have already transformed the way most of us communicate and share personal and professional information. RedTeam hopes to see a similar transformation throughout the construction industry. So far, RedTeam’s unique approach seems to be working as evidenced by its growing portfolio of enthusiastic clients.

Headquartered in Orlando, FL, RedTeam is largely comprised of people whose background includes extensive experience in commercial construction, and who recognize how important it is to connect people working together on construction projects. “We know the construction business well, and we know our users like the familiarity and usability of our social-style interface, but they also count on us to ensure conformance with the appropriate contractual protocols for the construction industry,” asserts Michael Wright, co-founder and CEO, RedTeam Software. By facilitating communication and documentation as a single "social" process, RedTeam has helped project teams to achieve breakthrough levels of speed, efficiency, effectiveness, and most importantly, accountability. The case involving Williams Company—a firm offering a multitude of services including general contracting, construction management, design/build, and turnkey development—is a perfect example of this. Chris Rollins, COO of Williams Company, was trying to find a software that “works the way contractors work,” and came across RedTeam after trying several other construction project management applications. RedTeam was initially appealing to Chris in one regard in particular—the founders are contractors themselves, and the solution turned out to be a great fit. Years later, RedTeam continues to support Williams Company, including all their construction endeavors and aggressive expansion into new market areas.
RedTeam offers a unique set of online project management and collaboration tools for construction managers, general contractors, and trade contractors–including the first social platform designed to organize, document, and control project workflow. Apart from helping construction project team members to create and share contract documents, post updates, upload photos, and monitor performance, RedTeam has re-energized construction companies weary from several years of a down turned market, and enabled them to scale up quickly to handle new business.

It does so by keeping critical information in one place that is accessible over the internet at anytime and from anywhere. In addition, RedTeam also helps its clients streamline pre-construction and estimating, including detailed comparison and final selection of vendor quotes which helps contractors form competitive teams for project opportunities.

Going forward, the company aims to apply latest technologies to deliver a truly innovative solution for commercial construction project management. For all industries, the prevalence of electronic communication is creating new risks just as fast as it is generating new opportunities. RedTeam stands ready to address these risks and opportunities upfront and help their clients harness information in ways to make work safer, deliver better customer service and improve profitability. The company is focused on continuous improvement of existing functionality, as well as continuing their integration with other cloud-based networks, resources, and tools.
