Symbridge is a Virtual Project Manager for any person or business who hires any construction related work to be done. It was created to build trust and accountability and build a bridge between the owner and the service provider. This is done through the following features:
Bidding System: If the owner does not have a service provider already they can post a job with the title, description of service and the budget. The service provider can bid on the job, the client can reject the bid or choose to accept it. The service provider will receive an acceptance email if their bid was approved.
Milestone: The client and service provider will decide on the details of the job. They will break the job up into sections or milestones. After each milestone is successfully completed, the client will release payment to the service provider. (click here to learn more about the milestone system) This should be on a different page link…
The Milestones Are Set Up By The Owner.
The owner verifies the work is completed prior to payment.
The service provider can send videos and pictures of the job.
A change form can be sent and signed by both parties to change the job details or payment info.
Helps to eliminate shady service providers.
Encourages better quality of work and helps to meet and exceed the customers satisfaction.
Helps to establish a consistent communication channel between customer and service provider.
Helps to ensure the job is completed on time.
Gives the customer peace of mind knowing that the contractor cant run off with all of the money.
Gives the service provider peace of mind knowing that the money is secure and ready to be sent, when the job is successfully completed.
After the client and service provider come to terms on the budget and details for the job, the client places the money for the job in the escrow account. Once the milestones are completed and approved by the customer, the agreed upon portion is taken out of escrow and given to the service provider.
Change Order form- The client and service provider can make changes to the original milestone, job details and budget. Both parties need to agree upon the new changes.
GPS, Timecard, and Facetime- GPS is important because the client can now track exactly where the service provider is during the day in real time. In addition, the service provider can clock into work using the GPS Timecard system. The system is set up to track the location of the service provider, the time they clocked in, and they can also take pictures or initiate a live stream in real time of themselves, or the job they're currently working on. They can clock in with a picture of the start of the job in the morning, then clock out with the finished product for the day. This helps keep the service providers accountable and allows the customer to see the work progression without physically being at the job site.
For security purposes we have set up a 2FA system. After a user is registered with our website, they must sign in by email verification.
