Watch the Work Flow to You

Ever had a last-minute cancel? How can you keep work flowing and not interrupt progress on your projects? Turn to technology to help you get your work done faster.

Digital Records Management

Keep Your Records on File - And on the Go

Not only can you keep your files neatly in one place but you can take them on the go with you. With construction workflow management software, you can easily digitize and automate your records. 

If you ever want to reference these documents, you can do so easily and digitally with a construction workflow management software.

Keep Track of Progress

With GPS technology, you can keep track of material and job progress. Plus, you can even keep track of when a trucker arrives at a job site. Think about what that could do for your preparations.

Plus, with construction workflow management software, you can easily identify pain points in your projects using cycle time reports. Cycle time reporting helps track each event of a trucker's cycle from when they start to when they complete each load. With the push of a button, dispatchers can instantly:

  • Identify holdup in order deliveries
  • Discover trucking blockage at job sites and/or plants before it becomes problematic
  • Determine if a job is over or under truckage 

In addition, cycle time reporting allows you to take traffic conditions into consideration, which means more accurate cycle time analysis.

Cycle Time Report

By allowing construction companies to closely track and manage each leg within a trucker’s cycle time, cycle time reporting establishes more efficient times for loads, reducing costs and maximizing profit.

Automatic Digital Invoicing

Payment happens all in one go. You can easily receive invoices. The way it works is invoices are sent weekly for the previous work week and are organized by day and job. The result is one easy and understandable payment.

Keep tabs on your hired trucking. You rely on your truckers to get the job done. But you don’t always have the visibility you need. Using construction workflow management software means you can easily manage disputes in real-time.
