GenieBelt join forces with major global player
NEWS August 22, 2018
Solars related business, GenieBelt, and polymer specialist, REHAU, join forces to solve two of the biggest challenges that the construction industry faces on a constant basis: Time and money. Soon, REHAU will introduce their customers to an innovative project management portal. The tool will empower the real-time monitoring of the status of a construction and the connection between all the subcontractors and stakeholders – with the push of a button from any device.
The new REHAU portal is the result of a fruitful collaboration between GenieBelt and Unlimited X, the innovation lab of REHAU Group. GenieBelt is convinced that this new ambitious partnership will be successful and a solid step in fulfilling its vision of revolutionising the construction industry.
“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.
“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”, says Ulrik Branner.
Smarter and more efficient
As a result, construction agents will now be able to build smarter and coordinate their project activities in a much more efficient manner. That is substantial if you consider that main contractors battle against very similar problems when managing construction sites.
Regardless of the number of subcontractors that they have to manage on a daily basis, they should always make sure that they complete the project on time and within budget. Until now, a lot of time on-site is spent on trying to acquire the latest updates about a task. This can lead to significant delays and additional costs.
For REHAU, this is an exciting 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.
