You have a dozen options when it comes to tracking time and attendance for your construction company, and at least half of them are really good options. AboutTime, ExakTime, mJobTime, BusyBusy, ClockShark, TSheets, MobiClock, and the list goes on.
We have recently added the ability for individual employees to clock in and have that info roll up to the foreman’s device, so if all you need is time & attendance, CrewTracks is as good as any other option now, even if you don’t want time tracking kept in the hands of the foreman, which was the original approach we followed at CrewTracks.
Forgive us for not jumping for joy about “catching up” in that regard, because we’ve never been a time and attendance app.
We are a construction management app, not just a time clock.
An absolutely crucial aspect of construction management is tracking production against labor time. CrewTracks is the best of the best in this regard, and we have been for over three years now.
Production Tracking in Your Construction Company
Production tracking is a fundamental principle for any construction company looking to succeed in a competitive market. As much as construction business owners like to tell themselves they lost a bid because higher quality work costs more, sometimes the competition is winning bids with low pricing and also producing quality work.
How do they do it? By accurately and consistently measuring the amount of work completed in a specific time frame. This is the key to outperforming your competition and making more money.
When you track production against labor time, you can identify inefficiencies and areas for improvement, set achievable goals, catch minor issues before they become major setbacks, and ultimately improve your bottom line.
Effective production tracking requires clear communication between teams, accurate time and material tracking, and timely reporting of progress. Companies that implement a simple and powerful app, such as CrewTracks, for tracking production will have a significant advantage over those that rely on manual or outdated methods. With real-time data at their fingertips, you can make informed decisions, optimize your resources, and improve your efficiency and profitability.
In other words, if you are not tracking production against labor time using a simple, real-time system, you are leaving money on the table and getting outperformed.
