Who are we?
Mark and Paul founded De BouwApp, the SitePodium app for the Dutch market, in 2013, marking the birth of the world’s first mobile application for community engagement. The idea was born out of their experiences as local residents alongside construction projects. They were fascinated by the projects themselves, yet they were disappointed by the low standard of communication. They compiled their knowledge of the construction sector and IT. Not long after, the first application was launched, with the Minister for Housing and the Central Government Sector Stef Blok and the Former President of Bouwend Nederland Eelco Blok in attendance. Currently, Mark and Paul work with a team of programmers to continuously improve the functionality and features of both De BouwApp and SitePodium.
Why did we develop SitePodium?
We believe in transparent communication. By all means share the highlights of your project, but also be honest about hindrances and adversity. When you are honest with the community, you can build a solid foundation of support. SitePodium is fully equipped to communicate transparently and measure support.
