Construction

Solve and resolve today’s problems, today

Eliminating confusion, mistakes, and rework is possible when employees can freely share tribal knowledge and stay connected to the people and information they need in real time. Email is slow, easily missed and often ignored. Consumer apps are unreliable and don’t connect everyone in the organization.

With Zinc’s real-time communication app, you can solve and resolve today’s problems today, instead of waiting for tomorrow’s early morning huddle. Powerful features connect and engage employees so that everyone is safe, informed, and productive. Say goodbye to the prolonged chain of communication and reach everyone in a moment’s notice.

"Trying to foster engagement on a project of this magnitude quickly exposes the limitations of using traditional communication methods. Emails are easily ignored. Texting is limited to the contact numbers that are known. Phone calls often lead to a prolonged chain of communication, and job site meetings are not timely enough. We needed a centralized and streamlined process, and we turned to Zinc for the answer.
