Photos, Text Messages, DMs – Oh MY! #ConstChat Recap

Field-to-Office CommunicationConstruction Chat is a new chat hosted by us on Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.  We’d love you to join if you’re free next week.

(I put a reminder in my calendar. Otherwise, even I would forget.)

This week’s topic:

Today we discussed communication methods from the field to the office and field to client.

Below are the questions, as asked, and some highlighted answers. Some weeks there are so many great answers, it’s hard not to include them. We apologize for the length in advance. The purpose of the recap is to give you, our reader, some insight.

The questions came from Kevin at Hard Hat Hub. Thanks for co-hosting, Kevin.

Q1. What is the most effective way your company communicates between the field and the office?

Q1b. I see a lot of you (us) use texting to communicate with the field. Does that ever pose a problem?

No one has had any problems. That’s a good thing.

Q2. How was this changed over the last 5-10 years?

Q2b. Do any of your field guys email photos to clients?

Q3. In what ways would you like to see field-to-office communications improve?

Q3b. Lots of photo taking in the field. Do you guys take before (aka CYA) photos, during, and after?

Q4. How has field-to-office communications benefitted you or a co-worker on site?

Q5. Does your company use any social networks to communicate between field and office?

Bonus Tweet:
