Speed and efficiency are an integral part of any business, but especially for contractors.

The logistics of managing employees and their schedules is a complicated, at times frustrating task. This goes for employees as well. Constant communication is essential to ensure proper coverage for shift work. Experts in the industry themselves, brothers Jason and Josh approached Chop Dawg looking for an app to empower their own and other businesses throughout a contractor’s project lifecycle.

Combining the power of a versatile scheduling and messenger application, Obras is an easy-to-use tool to help contractors get projects done.

With just a few clicks, both users and business entities can register and set up profiles. With the power of a user interface designed to be robust, yet simple, any non-technical person will quickly feel confident with their ability to assign roles and teams, set up schedules, and communicate with their team in a matter of minutes. Contractors receive their assignments in-app, including the location, necessary equipment, job details and any other information pertinent to getting the job done. This not only saves management countless resources, but is also a scaleable, on-the-go resource for contractors working at multiple job sites managing projects. An in-app messenger allows contractors to reach out with any questions or clarification on things like permits and inspections.

A powerful admin was essential to manage project assignments and scheduling.

We’ve equipped Obra’s team with a state-of-the-art admin backend built as a website application and companion mobile application to help manage day-to-day business. Team members are equipped with the ability to assign user roles and teams, schedule contractors, track data and analytics and manage users, providing support when necessary. Our work with Obras is ongoing as the app is expanded, including a new admin-side mobile app version.
