Collaborate and Conquer with PlanHub’s Messaging Center

Construction, as they say, is not for loners… it’s a team activity. Whether you are networking with potential contacts, bidding on a new opportunity or collaborating on an existing project, working in the construction business means always needing to call, text or email someone. 

Unfortunately, most common methods of communication just don’t cut it in today’s fast-based construction world. From emails that don’t automatically refresh to messages that are clunky to compose and organize, the old ways of connecting are often holding us back from using our time efficiently.

Thankfully, you can stash away that rolodex, put down your flip phone and log out of that email account. PlanHub is ready to provide you with a game-changing new slate of tools designed to help you collaborate with more time-efficiency than ever before. It’s a new era for PlanHub users, and we’re kicking it off with the ultimate all-in-one communication tool: Messaging Center 2.0.

Get the Message Faster

Do I owe that contractor a call, or was I supposed to wait to hear from them? What’s the context of this message I just received? I’m sure they sent me that estimate yesterday, but was it in a text, email or one of my apps? I barely had a chance to glance at that important piece of feedback that landed in my inbox yesterday, so where the heck did it go?

Instead of feeling overwhelmed by disjointed conversations and incompatible tools and apps, PlanHub’s platform allows you to effortlessly collaborate in real time with coworkers and contacts, all in one place. Check or send messages one-by-one or in bulk (an amazing time-saver!), organize conversations to your liking, and manage files all in one place. 

Whether you are sending or receiving pricing information or project updates, disorganized communication can lead to catastrophic errors and delays. Messaging Center 2.0 is designed to ensure that you never misplace a memo by making it easy for you to send, read, save and categorize every message in a way that works best for you. 

Looking to stay on top of your work without actively staring at your laptop all day? With new message alerts and 24-7 access from your mobile device, you’ll never miss a beat (and to learn how PlanHub’s all-in-one platform streamlines the entire preconstruction process, check out our recent blog: “Optimizing Construction Productivity”.)
