Construction Viz Adds Actionable SMS Text Notifications
Never miss a critical construction project update again. Construction Viz now lets your project teams receive actionable SMS text notifications for project events.
Today, we are connected to our phones more than ever. For better or worse, our phones have become the go-to device for our everyday activities, both personal and business. And while Microsoft 365 and email are at the core of how we conduct business, we cannot ignore that SMS text messages are a pervasive unstructured communication technology.
New SMS text notification feature for Construction Viz
We built Construction Viz as a progressive web app (PWA) that leverages your Microsoft 365 investment and that you can access on any device with a modern browser. At the core of Construction Viz is the idea that we meet you where you work, allowing you to always know your projects' status through email and system notifications. Today we are extending our notifications further to include SMS text messages.
Using our deep integration with Microsoft 365 Power Automate, we can send notifications as actionable SMS text messages. Your workflows can trigger SMS messages for specific events, such as an alert of poor weather conditions, a site safety issue, or even the need for approval on a form like an RFI or submittal.
With Construction Viz, we can include a link to any of our form apps that the user can click and open in their browser and respond without ever leaving their phone. To avoid overwhelming users with large volumes of texts, we can optionally send daily or weekly digests of project status.
With Construction Viz and Microsoft 365 Power Automate, you and your team can receive notifications within the application, email, Adaptive Cards, Microsoft To-Do, Microsoft Teams, and, now, SMS text messages. No matter where you prefer to do your work, we have you covered.
