Architect Philip Leamon’s first time managing a project via WhatsApp


In this segment Deb chats with her architect Phil Leamon about their introduction to WhatsApp.

Deb’s builder Dave Klees of Virtue Projects, uses WhatsApp to communicate with Phil and Deb during the project. The immediacy and convenience of this app is proving a great method of communication, especially for issues that require collaborative answers. Dave has been able to post videos, and plans that can be drawn on, when he needs clarification from either Phil or Deb.

WhatsApp is an easy-to-use, free messenger app for smartphones. It is very similar to SMS texting, but as WhatsApp uses the internet to send messages, the cost is significantly less than texting. You can create group chats to share messages, photos and videos.

Document sharing includes PDFs, documents up to 100MB, spreadsheets, slideshows and more, without the hassle of email or file sharing apps. 

The developers of WhatsApp claim the messaging system is fully encrypted and calls are secured, so only you and the person/people you are communicating with can read or listen to messages.
