RedTeam offers a robust mobile app to

Transforming the Business of Construction
RedTeam is designed as a social application that streamlines the
work of every employee of a company. The application is rolebased, meaning that team members have access only to the projects
and parts of the application they are authorized to use. "We have
bypassed the days of software being used by someone in the back
office doing data entry," Wright says. "Our software allows people to
collaborate in real time, which dramatically improves the efficiency
of the entire business."
The platform efficiently captures critical information from what
project team members do each day, facilitating accountability and
effectiveness. "RedTeam ensures that everyone in the business has
instant access to the information they need to get their jobs done,"
"One of the more surprising things our customers
report to us as a benefit of using RedTeam is the way
it changes the way they are viewed in the marketplace," he says. "Many small contractors are viewed
as being more sophisticated by the customers
they serve, and [RedTeam] changes the way their
employees view them as a company."
Scalability is another important benefit of the
system. "Other solutions available in the market were really designed (and priced) for large
organizations," Guitton says. "RedTeam can
be used by companies as small as a couple of
employees, as well as businesses with revenue of several hundred million annually."
The cloud-based application is available as a monthly subscription. Two
paid tiers are available: a "Construction
Professional" package that can be used
by up to 10 people in a company and costs
$75 per user per month (or $49 if paid annually); and a "Construction Enterprise" package, which can be used by an unlimited
Within the past two years, the company has integrated with other
industry-leading software applications. "RedTeam is comprehensive, but we recognize it can't be everything to everyone, so we will
work with other industry solution providers to deliver complementary functionality where our customers need it," said Wright.
In this way, RedTeam is rapidly expanding the capabilities of its
In 2015, RedTeam integrated with QuickBooks Online to provide its users with robust construction accounting and financial
reporting capability. Construction companies often struggle with
complicated accounting procedures including progress billing,
retainage and revenue recognition as a percentage of completion.
"The systems are perfectly complementary," says Wright. "RedTeam
handles the construction accounting while QuickBooks handles
payments, receipts, general ledger and financial reporting."
Earlier this year, Red Team integrated with PlanGrid, a drawing
management platform that allows all project constituents to view
and mark up plans on job sites using mobile devices. "Having plans
in electronic form allows more functionality around marking up
those plans in the field," Guitton says. "Contractors create virtual
plan sets to streamline collaboration with everyone on a jobsite."
RedTeam Software is pursuing future integration opportunities.
"Over the next few years, we will continue to be a leader in the construction technology industry and will expand by integrating with
best-in-class solutions," he adds. "RedTeam is a complete solution
that solves everyday issues for contractors, scalable for what they
need right now and fully capable of supporting whatever they dare
