Core, headquartered in Palo Alto, California, announced the launch of Crews by Core Pro, a Labor Operating System (LaborOS). This new, single solution platform offers the capability to hire, and manage crews with a task and labor management tool that syncs with your existing systems, to get labor onsite, improve communication and reduce rework. Since its launch September 2020, the construction labor marketplace has matched hundreds of companies with thousands of workers, all with the help of technology and built-in algorithms that leverage keyword search for both jobs and workers.
“As a labor management platform, we’re connecting the whole team across the field and office, to optimize daily workflow and communication, especially for the foreman and project manager,” said Di-Ann Eisnor, CEO and co-founder of Core. “We spoke to over 5,000 trade professionals and 50 GCs to understand how we could best serve them—what we heard was an overwhelming need for better communication among crews and between the field and office. This feedback inspired us to develop a labor management and communications platform that supports productivity on the jobsite every day and reduces friction for everyone on the team.”
Across the world’s largest industry, construction, 52% of rework is caused by poor project data and miscommunication. This amounts to $31 billion in wasted investment in the United States alone. When combined with a 430,000-worker labor gap cited by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for a worker-employer solution is imperative.
Crews by Core Pro LaborOS connects teams in a single system on desktop and/or mobile. Project managers and general superintendents have access to managing thousands of tasks, keeping foreman and crews efficient and organized.
