The thing that changed it, was connecting the teams through a live programme that helped us avoid downtime between activities. If your programme is not updated frequently, problems on site get worse because they have not been communicated to the right person quickly.
Get everyone working to the project schedule
When you started using AproPlan, you saw how easy it was to collaborate when everyone is seeing the same documents. With GenieBelt, your schedule is cloud-based as well. Everyone sees their tasks and the status of related activities so now, they are focused on moving the project forward.
So what is the difference between this and other planning tools? GenieBelt gives you a “live” schedule in the cloud. You can see exactly what is happening on site, in real time. Everyone collaborates around the schedule and you get peace of mind.
But we already have a planning software…
Yes, you can create a Gantt chart from scratch in GenieBelt, but you are probably already using another application to create your project schedule. The question is, how do you bring that schedule to life? Simply import your schedule from your favourite planning software!

Direct updates from the site in real time
The same way AproPlan gives you the full overview of your quality checks in one application, GenieBelt does the same for your planning. Workers see their tasks and report progress on their smartphones, directly from site. And you can see all updates instantly, so you always know exactly where things are going to plan – and where they are not.
With that kind of visibility, you can focus your attention where it is needed. And go home every day knowing that things are under control.
Full documentation – all in one place
If you are building a lot of apartment units, you will know what a pain handovers can be. And hopefully, you will also have experienced how much AproPlan helps you by providing you with all the documentation you need.
The same goes for GenieBelt – it tracks all activities related to your schedule. Everything that is reported or communicated in GenieBelt is saved in the audit trail, so you always know where to find important documentation.
That single source of proof eliminates a lot of uncertainty and admin work. In fact, some customers tell us that they are spending 75% less time on claims and reporting.
With GenieBelt, you get time on your side.
Know what’s next and make better decisions
GenieBelt does more than give you information about what is happening on site. When you can see exactly how tasks are progressing compared to the schedule, you can plan the next steps with confidence.
And because you get notified of questions and problems in real time, you are able to react faster and better. That means less downtime, faster turnaround, and fewer delays.
Because when you see everything, you build better.
Don’t take it from us – see what other customers say
Now office staff is made aware the instant an issue arises. This has meant less downtime and less costly mistakes. Unlike previous applications, site crews actually use LetsBuild without constant follow up, meaning that management always has an up-to-date view of each project.
With just a few clicks, I can learn the current state of my projects. I can see where we are having problems and which contractors are experiencing delays. This kind of knowledge, which is difficult to get, is indispensable as it helps us evaluate and improve our approach to work.
LetsBuild saves us time because it automatically generates reports for the information that is in the system. So we have definitely seen the benefit and it means that people have more time to get an idea of what their job is and deliver safety on site.
