COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – 08-22-2018 (Press Release Jet) — Leading materials provider REHAU forms collaboration with construction software provider GenieBelt to solve today’s biggest challenges in the construction industry: Money and time. REHAU will provide their customers around the world with an innovative project management portal powered by GenieBelt. This cutting-edge digital solution will help them coordinate project activities and build better.
Every main contractor faces similar challenges when managing construction projects: They have to make sure that they stay on budget and finish the project on time while managing multiple subcontractors. A lot of time and money is wasted trying to get status updates and communicating changes to the schedule.
In order to provide a solution to this problem, GenieBelt and UNLIMITED X, the innovation lab of the REHAU Group, have established a cooperation. Together, they will offer the REHAU project portal, a tool allowing to monitor the status of a construction in real-time and to communicate with all subcontractors and stakeholders with one click from any device.
Danish startup GenieBelt has the vision to transform the construction industry and expects this cooperation to be very successful: “We have the innovative real-time project communication and collaboration software, REHAU has a lot of know-how and experience in the construction industry. Both companies want to set a new market standard for communication and collaboration on construction projects. We can see the enormous potential in improving the way projects are managed day-to-day to eliminate time waste, miscommunications and delays.”, says GenieBelt CEO Ulrik Branner.
For REHAU, this cooperation is an opportunity to offer a new digital product to customers. “It is our mission to excite our end customers through new digital solutions. Together with GenieBelt, we have adapted the software to perfectly suit our customers’ needs and to offer them additional value to our existing products. We are happy to work with GenieBelt to transform the construction industry”, Stefan Thomas, CDO REHAU and Managing Director UNLIMITED X, states.
