Construction products manufacturer Rehau is offering its customers a digital portal powered by the GenieBelt workforce management and reporting application.
Copenhagen, Denmark-based GenieBelt‘s SaaS real-time workforce management and reporting application has been adopted by Germany-based international polymer building materials specialist Rehau – a major manufacturer of doors, windows, and other construction products – to provide customers with a project management portal (news release).
The new portal is the result of collaboration between GenieBelt and Unlimited X, the innovation lab of the Rehau Group. GenieBelt says the tool will empower the real-time monitoring of the status of a construction project and facilitate connections between all the subcontractors and stakeholders with the push of a button from any device. GenieBelt CEO Ulrik Branner says:
“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.
“Rehau is a major global player with 20,000 employees in more than 170 locations across 6 continents. At GenieBelt, we work every day to transform the way we communicate and collaborate in construction and working with Rehau will significantly boost that.”
According to the GenieBelt news release, for Rehau, this is an opportunity to offer a new digital product to customers. Stefan Thomas (CDO of Rehau and MD of Unlimited X) says:
“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.”
In March 2018, GenieBelt announced a deal with housing provider HusCompagniet whereby its platform would be used to digitally connect construction suppliers across 2,000 house building projects in Denmark, Sweden and Germany.
In the UK, the Rehau project portal is being introduced to interested parties at an event “Mastering the Art of Digital Construction” at the Building Centre (home to the ‘RehauHub’) at 26 Store Street, London WC1 on 30 August 2018, from 6pm to 8pm.
