Everything you need in a general contractor management software
"I think that SmartBarrel is an amazing tool, we are a huge advocate of it on this project, and we have been trying to get other projects within our company to use it and give us their feedback. SmartBarrel has been really helpful, getting us custom tools to the needs that we have."
Hear what our customers have to say
When you don't have technology on the project, you have to rely just on papers that can get lost. That is very risky with all the safety requirements, and liabilities that you can get if anything happens; such as an accident, delay of time, or delay in the manpower that we're hiring on the job. SmartBarrel is a way to implement technology in construction. It's very efficient in the way that it works.

Frequently Asked Questions
Software for general contractors means the same thing as construction management software. It helps general contractors keep track of projects by tracking items, plans, documents, photos, files, and anything else that your business might need to manage.
SmartBarrel is a fully self-sufficient device. It’s sturdy and weatherproof, and can be powered via a solar panel if your jobsite doesn’t have power (we include a solar panel along with your SmartBarrel box). Once shipped to your jobsite, all you have to do is either upload the worker information of subcontractors (including their first name, last name, and phone number) or have the Super or Foreman add workers when they show up.
Adding workers is very simple. From your phone, tablet, or laptop, simply select the subcontractor option and add the worker’s first name, last name, and phone number. You can then opt in to collect further safety information via SMS.

SmartBarrel has a thermal attachment that scans for fevers upon check in. You can also have a COVID questionnaire sent to a worker’s phone.
Upon initial check-in via the SmartBarrel device, an SMS will be sent to a worker’s phone to confirm if the onboarding was complete.
Yes—when a worker checks out via the SmartBarrel device, an SMS will be sent to their phone to ask if there were any incidents. When initially checking in, an SMS is also sent to a worker’s phone to see if they have any injuries, which allows you to collect any necessary information in the most efficient way.
A phone number is assigned to every project, which subcontractors can easily send an SMS to detailing work performed. All of this information is synced directly into the SmartBarrel Dashboard. If you’re using Procore Daily logs, you can have the information flow directly into there as well.
