Detroit-based “RIVET” launches Labor Request and Notifications Features for Specialty Contractors

New features bring real-time job calls and notifications to RIVET’s Workforce Management platform

DETROIT — Software company RIVET (RIVET Work Inc.) announces the release of Labor Requests and Notifications features for its Workforce Management platform. These features enable real-time Labor Requests within the platform from virtually anywhere, unlocking powerful communication between the field and back office.

These new features centralize and manage incoming and outgoing labor requests whether they’re going to a union hall or a merit contractor’s internal bench, standardizing them into automated templates based on the type of request made. ­­

When a labor coordinator makes a Labor Request, the specific details are automatically collected into dispatches pre-populated with relevant info and appropriate recipients. Once a Labor Request has been sent, the back office receives an automated Notification with all the details needed to track, manage and resolve the request and assign the right person for the job.

Requests are then collected into daily and weekly dispatches, giving labor coordinators customization options for both how and how often they want to be notified. Notifications can be sent via email, SMS or within the RIVET platform.

These can also be filtered by job, so labor coordinators can cut through the noise and only receive the Notifications most relevant to their work. Labor Requests are also collected into a handy dashboard, giving the field and back office teams a comprehensive look at their organization’s labor activities.

“Labor Requests and Notifications are huge steps toward how RIVET supports the team approach to labor management,” said RIVET Co-founder and Director of Product Louis Gelinas. “Project managers and field supervisors can communicate their needs to the back office and automatically be notified when they’re filled, all without ever leaving the platform or their phone.

“Now, workforce managers at the office have better tools to track all their outstanding labor demands when they need to go to the union hall or proactively hire to ramp up their workforce.”

Contractors report that access to available qualified labor is their number one concern, and that labor makes up 50 percent or more of their budget. By adopting RIVET for Workforce Management, specialty contractors can streamline their workforce and Labor Requests for major efficiency and productivity gains.
