In a significant development to bridge the gap between developers and migrant labour contractors, real estate majors Oberoi Realty and TATA Projects signed up with Captech technologies to utilize the country's first construction labour marketplace 'eForce'. eForce, developed by Captech technologies, is an integrated multi-lingual technology platform specifically meant for labour deployment and project management. The construction tech platform bridges the gap between developers, migrant labour contractors, and specialized vendors to find quality labour on time. The platform will help in the timely completion of projects and is likely to provide a boost to the pace of work amid the COVID-19 crisis.
The eForce app, compatible with both android and apple stores, was launched in June this year by the new-age construction tech company Captech technologies. With the latest development, the labour marketplace has bagged projects from Oberoi Realty and TATA Projects.
eForce labour marketplace - Top Features:
- The eForce mobile app acts as an enabler in the unorganized construction market and connects the developers to contracted labourers with the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics.
- Through the eForce marketplace platform, developers will be able to access thousands of labour contractors or specialized vendors to grow the supply chain and also be able to filter and choose contractors in terms of experience, needs and bandwidth.
- The eForce app can deploy more than 4,00,000 labour through thousands of general contractors registered on the platform.
- The platform intends to organize the unorganized migrant and non-migrant labour contractor market in the construction industry.
- It helps the developers to mobilize the projects quickly and mitigate the delays in project owing to shortage of skilled manpower.
- Captech eForce platform has been used at the City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra, (CIDCO) commercial area and onsite infrastructure work at Navi Mumbai and JJ Hospital at Byculla Mumbai, along with several other construction sites across the country.
