Time Tracking and Time Allocation in Construction Management Software

Time Tracking and Time Allocation in Construction Management Software

Time is a valuable resource in any business, and construction companies are no exception. Efficient time tracking and allocation can make all the difference in a project’s success. CrewTracks is a popular time tracking and project management software that enables construction project managers to track crew productivity and progress in real-time. By optimizing time allocation, construction companies can ensure that their projects are completed efficiently and within budget.

Time Tracking in CrewTracks

CrewTracks makes time tracking easy by providing a user-friendly interface that allows crew members to clock in and out of their shifts from their mobile devices. This eliminates the need for manual time tracking, which can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Additionally, the software provides real-time visibility into the hours worked by each crew member, allowing project managers to identify any potential issues before they become major problems.

CrewTracks is so much more than a time-tracking app, but even if you only focus on the time-tracking aspect, we still offer more features than our competition.  All of these features are optional, meaning you can pick any one of them, any number of them, or all of them to implement at your company. This empowers you to start simple and roll out one feature at a time rather than facing a daunting learning curve.

  1. Clock in/out on individual devices, or
  2. Clock in/out on crew leader’s device
  3. Photo in / photo out
  4. GPS tag
  5. Injury tracking at clock out
  6. Automatic lunch time allocation

For example, if you want everyone to clock themselves in and out, you want to see the location of these clock events, and you want each person to report whether they were injured each day, you would use features 1, 5, and 6. Once everyone has the hang of that, you could add features 3 and 4 for added layers of liability mitigation and time tracking accuracy.

Believe it or not, you also have the option to turn the time clock off completely. This is a popular option for piece-rate companies or salaried employees. They will simply skip to time allocation without having to clock in first.

Time Allocation in CrewTracks

Time allocation is the process of indicating which tasks crew members spent their time on, and how much time they spent on each task. CrewTracks allows project managers to assign tasks to crews and track their progress in real-time. This helps to ensure that each task is completed on time and that each crew member is working on the most critical tasks at any given time. By optimizing time allocation, construction companies can ensure that their projects are completed efficiently and within budget.
