KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Extracker, a cloud-based collaboration platform for the construction industry that helps general contractors and subcontractors create, track and share change orders and time and material tags, has selected global B2B agency Ripley PR as its public relations provider and agency of record.
San Francisco-based Extracker, available as both a desktop site and a mobile application, allows contractors to remotely share real-time data to help keep projects on track and on budget while following safety regulations and protocols.
"The cloud-based platform allows construction companies to keep on the same page when sending project costs instead of tracking things via email and excel," said Cameron Page, founder and CEO of Extracker. "We vetted several agencies and chose to partner with Ripley PR because their knowledge of the construction industry and relationships with the construction trade media will help us reach a new audience that can benefit from our services."
Page is a former general contractor who recognized the lack of visibility in the industry when it came tracking T&M Tags and CORs between subcontractors, general contractors and owners. To address the issue, he created a software platform that brings accountability and clarity to the job site. Standardizing inefficient written or emailed record-keeping has brought the organizational features of Extracker to the forefront.
"Time and accuracy in information are critical to general contractors' success, and our agency immediately knew they could benefit from Extracker's innovative platform," said Heather Ripley, CEO of Ripley PR. "This remote application improves the reliability and efficiency of information exchanges, shaving off hours of additional work. We are eager to increase public awareness about Extracker and the positive impact their software will have for contractors in the industry."
