GenieBelt signs housebuilder deal

GenieBelt logoA leading home provider in northern Europe is using Copenhagen-based Geniebelt‘s real-time workforce management and reporting SaaS application to deliver a 10-15% efficiency gain in its supply chain. Following a 2017 pilot of GenieBelt, HusCompagniet has elected to connect its construction suppliers digitally, and says it will use GenieBelt on 2,000 house building projects. The partnership covers all of HusCompagniet’s activities in Denmark, Sweden and Germany.

HusCompagniet collaborates with numerous trades including masons, carpenters,
electricians, plumbers, painters etc. GenieBelt will be used to help teams identify delays in preceding work packages and avoid needless trips to sites, says Morten Chrone, group COO at HusCompagniet:

HusCompagniet and GenieBelt“Unfortunately, building contractors often drive to sites in vain because they depend on another trade to finish before them. The slightest delay in one activity results in a chain reaction of delays that can now be avoided. GenieBelt will form the digital backbone of our construction processes and will be integrated with our existing digital tools. We will be able to benefit from further efficiency gains and secure the data we generate on approx. 2,000 projects in 2018. In the short term, we build faster and better, but we also have a platform for analysing and learning – all in all, a huge benefit to our customers.”

Ulrik Branner - Geniebelt CEOGenieBelt’s CEO Ulrik Branner says:

“HusCompagniet has outsourced the actual construction phase to trusted long-term contractors but by engaging in this partnership with GenieBelt, they can now manage the construction phase as seamlessly as their front-end activities. In HusCompagniet, we have found a customer that fully shares our belief that this industry holds enormous potential for those who are ready to change the way they collaborate, communicate and build.”

GenieBelt says its software is now used on more than 20,000 projects in over 100 countries.
