Rescon Builders is using GenieBelt to its advantage when building granny flats.
With a building volume of 200 granny flats a year, Rescon Builders is Sydney’s leading builder of granny flats. That is a lot of work and the company needed an application that was easy to use and could work off a mobile phone for easy onsite updates. That would make it easier for the management of the building progress and Rescon Builders therefore decided to test out GenieBelt.
“With the phone app, we have found that site supervisors were quick to adopt the application with little to no training as its interface is that intuitive. The results were quickly obvious,” Timothy Cocaro says, the Director of Rescon Builders.

Gives Rescon an unfair advantage
Rescon Builders used to discuss any problems identified, during weekly meetings, something that is no longer needed. “Now office staff is made aware the instant the issue arise. This has meant less downtime and less costly mistakes. Unlike previous applications, site crews actually use Geniebelt without constant follow up, meaning that management always has an up to the minute status view on each project,” Timothy says and adds:
“Most importantly we saw, less errors, quicker turn-arounds and critically quicker builds. Geniebelt has given our company an advantage over our competitors, who are still using paper project plans, clunky large scale apps or worse nothing at all. GenieBelt has giving back my life, with less paperwork and stress.”
The thing that excites Timothy about GenieBelt, is the way that you can bring project managing and field work updates so closely together. “Geniebelt is the first application that our team on the ground find extremely useful, tracking their projects and keeping real-time notes without the need for clunky laptops or iPads. We are saving literally hundreds of thousands per year through improved efficiencies, reduced management and improved delivery.” This is what gives Rescon Builders an unfair advantage. “Geniebelt gives our company an unfair competitive edge. Its ease of use has meant it’s been readily adopted, allowing our team to finish more projects, on time and on budget.”
Simple and easy to use
It does not take a lot of work to get familiar with the use of GenieBelt according to Timothy.“Geniebelt is simple. Its works right off your phone helping the office keep track with the team on the field and vice versa.
It’s easy, requires little or no training and that’s key. Working off your phone, Geniebelt helps avoid costly mistakes, helps the team keep on top of things to ensure we don’t miss that deadline.”
Put simply, “GenieBelt is the no nonsense, easy to use project management application we have been looking for,” says Timothy and adds: “GenieBelt is the first application that our team find useful for their work, tracking their projects and keeping real-time notes. In just a few clicks they have updated the whole team.” Something that has helped Rescon Builders making onsite staff work closer together with the office without the needs of sms, emails, phone calls, or daily meetings.
I cannot be happier as a business owner with Geniebelt. It has given back my life, with less paperwork and stress.
GenieBelt is the no nonsense, easy to use project management application we have been looking for.
