About GenieBelt


GenieBelt is a cloud-based construction and project management solution specializing in scheduling. It connects users’ home office to work sites so they can issue and find drawings, share project documents with teams and get progress reports. This system includes a dashboard where users can see all their projects at once, and receive notifications.

The solution's document management module allows users to store all their documents in one place, and they can invite clients and partners to view certain documents. Those invited will receive a file containing all of the relevant documents.

GenieBelt creates audit trails for each document in the system, so users can see when documents are edited and who edited them. They can either accept or reject changes, as well as check off completed tasks. This solution also has a task list, a drawing database and a project directory that allows users to see who is on the team for each project.

GenieBelt is priced per project per month. Mobile apps are available for Android and iOS.

Get this app and stop wasting your time and money

I have been using for two years now. Getting up to date and accurate progress reports is key for us to save time on our projects by being proactive. I knew GenieBelt was a real game changer for us as soon as I started. I am really impressed with GenieBelt and would be surprised if it does not reduce expenses. The platform is about being flexible to change, share information, and adjust your plans according to the other stakeholders. It shows everyone's responsibilities, across the design team and the subcontractors and we are currently about 70 different operatives working on site that uses GenieBelt. - The ideal is that everyone does their own reporting, but as it is custom when implementing new systems, there have been a bit of resistance to change, where we had some mixed experience in getting all the contractors to do their reporting. But most people carry a smartphone these days, so it's possible, In general, the workers really like GenieBelt. We have worked about 130 years in the construction business, and we use some subcontractors more often than others. The ones we work with the most also use GenieBelt more, since they know we prefer to use it. - The main problem about delays is when people don't know where they are in a process. For example, a team may arrive on Monday and expect to be finished with a task Friday ' but gets delayed a day. This scenario tends to actually cost more than a day, since everyone else have to adjust their plans to it. And if a team finishes early and nobody knows about it, you cannot gain economically from it. Finishing quicker always makes money and that is how GenieBelt helps us.

A great tool for construction and building developement teams

Our client is happy with the effective utilization of human resource and limited issue. Also the time for issue resolution is very less. All thanks to GenieBelt!

Pros

We use GenieBelt for our construction client as it involves a lot of hassles and hard tasks involved, also the staff is limited. We use GenieBelt to help them solve the problems by maintaining a strong set of communication and sharing the issues they face. GenieBelt is a great tool to manage and tackle issues with minimum high skilled professionals. The main advantage is that one can solve the issue virtually for different sites.

Cons

The UI and the app needs more improvement as it crashes frequently.

Easy to set up, great overview with the Gantt chart

As a tech company, we needed a project management tool. We were aware that GenieBelt is primarily for physical infrastructure building purposes; but we decided to give it a shot, given its good initial impression. We have now moved on to a different tool (but still haven't settled), as we felt that a few key things were perhaps too specifically intended for physical infrastructure projects. We do miss the Gantt chart: it gave us the best overview we've ever had, along with easy interaction. Good UX too. Given its ease of setup, do try it out and see if it ends up being a good fit.

Pros

Gantt chart, great UX.

Cons

Too specifically designed for building purposes for us (a tech company).

I am using this app since 2016. its amazing for us.

No documentation work is required after completion of project. This app automatically makes a complete documentation work for your project,

Pros

real time pics uploading. budget monitoring. task management and specially one thing that make this software is you can run it without internet on field.

Cons

the function of drill down is best but it should be available in every package, because we are are missing it in our existing package.

A Review of GenieBelt.

GenieBelt is ideal for CM and basic scheduling pertaining to an array of different project uses. Overall we enjoy the idea that it helps to connect our users' home office to our main work sites and shared sites, making it easy to locate blueprint and plans and PDF files. It is also useful in our team based progress reporting goals.

Pros

We like that GenieBelt enables our employees working remotely, to function on close levels with corporate help. As far as construction management software, it is top notch. Multiple dashboard features and a cloud based storage platform make for a sleek and efficient module. We also appreciate the mobile reporting aspects and picture uploading tools.

Cons

We enjoy GenieBelt overall for our project management and scheduling needs. If there was one thing we like the least about this software, it might be that if some sort of document control platform were added, we could monitor work-performance with additional ease.

First Day of Using Geniebelt and I'm hooked!

I like the fact Geniebelt combines programming and the ability to track progress / updates per specific task. I update items daily and add info to the audit trail including delays and disruptions, the program has replaced my site diary. I had a few queries and they were answered quickly by the friendly team. Very impressed so far. Feedback: It would be good if task items on the programme could be coloured for different trades i.e. groundworks, brickwork etc. It would be good if the extended section of a task which is overdue (past the original finish date) could be identified in a different colour to show how many days/weeks the task is in delay.

Hi Nigel, Thanks a lot for your review and feedback. Happy to hear GenieBelt even works like a replacement for your site diary. We like your suggestion with the manual color options for different trades, so I'll definitely pitch this idea with the product team. Have you tried out Tags in GenieBelt? A lot of users uses tags to organize their tasks by trade. Just reach out to us if you would like to get a demo of how this works. I would like to have you elaborate a bit on your second suggestion, so I will reach out to you in private. Once again thanks for taking the time to review. Regards, Peter GenieBelt Ambassador

Got the basics, and then some

I have been using Geniebelt to keep track of my projects and getting a good overview of my project portfolio.

Pros

Easy and intuitive to use and has a nice visual.
Able to use a free account with lots of useful functions.
Fast support.

Cons

I have been using Geniebelt from the beginning of the development, so I have experienced a lot of small irritations points. These still pop up, from time to time, but are usually fixed fast.

Amazing project management tool for builders on the go

Pros

The staff at Geniebelt has worked closely with our team to ensure we are well trained and we get the most out of the application. The product itself is the first of its kind that lets our ground teams work closely with the office, updating status, planning and issues. It has saved our company thousands and is well worth trying if you want to improve your current processes particularly when it comes to an easy to implement, follow and update PM system.

Cons

There is nothing in particular any shortcomings the team has quickly taken into account and factored into future versions.

Fantastic collaboration hub software

AreaSq whom is part of The Fourfront Group runs about 100 projects a year. We had previously used Woobius until the website closed down and have been searching for a good replacement. There are a lot of Collaboration hub websites out there but we felt that they were either very complex (and expensive) and required a lot of training or you ended with a Dropbox style that used file space on your PC's drive. It was quite a relief to find GenieBelt which in my opinion is a vastly improved upgraded version of Woobius with so much more. The programme has a very easy means of issuing drawings & sharing documents, and the audit tracking is brilliant. We haven't fully explored the tasks side of the programme yet, but can see its benefits. The Geniebelt app is great for when you are onsite and urgently need to see the latest drawings. The customer service has been very good and practically instant when you have an issue. The team have also been listening to our ideas and are quite happy to accommodate our needs. Overall I am very happy with Geniebelt
