156: Accelerate Progress & Reduce Chaos with FieldChat​

Summary from the Podcast website:

“We all know that running a profitable construction project requires a strong and coordinated team effort.

Problems arise, unforeseen obstacles are met, and when this happens those back in the office need a way to communicate with those on the field in a manageable format.”
