CrewTracks is a powerful software solution that offers a range of features designed to help construction businesses manage their workforce in the field. From supervisor approvals to customer sign off, daily reporting, and weather tracking, CrewTracks offers a comprehensive suite of tools to help businesses optimize their field operations. Let’s explore four of these features in more detail and discuss how they can benefit your business.
Supervisor approvals are a crucial part of any field-based workforce management system. With CrewTracks, supervisors can easily approve time entries, expenses, material usage, daily production, and other items reported by their team members. This feature streamlines the approval process and ensures that only good data flows into the accounting/ERP system for payroll, billing, and job costing.
Supervisor approvals also help to improve communication between team members and their supervisors. With CrewTracks, supervisors can easily see what tasks have been completed and which ones are still outstanding. They can then provide feedback and guidance to their team members, ensuring that everyone is working toward the same goals.
Supervisors can also simply reject a daily report with a note indicating why the report was rejected. This will alert the crew leader or employee that submitted the report so they can make necessary changes and submit their daily report again.
Customer Sign Off
Another important feature of CrewTracks is its customer sign off function. With this feature, customers can sign off on completed work directly from the CrewTracks app. This streamlines the billing and collection process by ensuring that all completed work is approved by the customer. No surprises.
Customer sign off also helps to improve customer satisfaction. By providing customers with the ability to sign off on completed work, businesses can ensure that they are meeting customer expectations and delivering high-quality service.
Daily reporting is the backbone of CrewTracks. Most of our customers use a feature that prevents employees from creating a daily report until the previous day’s report has been completed and submitted. This ensures data is fresh and accurate, rather than a weekly estimation based on fading memories of work completed on past dates. This helps employees establish a new routine of daily reporting in CrewTracks, which in turn provides real-time insights into how work is progressing, which tasks have been completed, and which ones are still outstanding.
Daily reporting also helps to identify any potential issues or delays early on, allowing you to take corrective action before they become bigger problems. By monitoring progress on a daily basis, businesses can optimize their operations and ensure that all tasks are completed on time and within budget.
Automatic Weather Tracking
Finally, CrewTracks also offers automatic weather tracking, which supplements other reporting features in order to paint a complete picture in the documentation of the job site each day. This feature is especially important in cases where weather conditions can have a significant impact on operations or even cause damage to work in progress. In these cases, daily weather tracking helps alleviate liability for delays and damage.
Automatic weather tracking is a great example of a CrewTracks feature that simply works. CrewTracks gathers GPS data based on the device generating the daily report and inserts the weather data into the report with zero input required from the user. You’ll be surprised how such a simple feature can be an absolute life saver. All it takes is one damage claim or delay caused by weather conditions for you to be grateful this data is always available in your daily reports.
In conclusion, CrewTracks is a comprehensive software solution that offers a range of features designed to help construction companies optimize their field operations. From supervisor approvals to customer sign off, daily reporting, and weather tracking, CrewTracks provides your company with the tools you need to stay ahead of the curve and deliver high-quality service to your customers.
