Everyday Tasks Made Easier with Contractor Software
Contractors who use project management software deal with the same daily tasks and challenges as those who do not, however, they are able to accomplish all of the same things only faster and more efficiently. By passing on contractor software you are letting a valuable tool.
If your data is being stored in email, excel, notebooks, time sheets, the back of a napkin, your brain, it is nearly impossible to get a true understanding of all the moving parts involved in a construction project. If just think of how much of your mental energy each day is spent keeping it all straight if you had a central location to keep all of your key information. The aim of TRUE Contractor software for construction businesses is to save time and energy by centralizing and organizing everything within one robust solution.
Construction business owners and project managers can rest easy knowing that everything is getting done, even the little things that could easily slip through the cracks are tracked with contractor software. Task lists can be synchronized with the project schedule and assigned to personnel with the ability to add updates in real-time. Once a task is assigned in TRUE, you can check progress by looking at your computer or mobile device rather than calling someone back at the office. You can even automate reminders to keep the task front-of-mind until it’s completed.
Budgets & Schedules
Aside from the convenience of storing all of your data in one place, the real magic happens when all of that data is related. For example, when you submit a change order, the system will auto-populate key elements for you, it will then update your schedule, your budget forecast will take the new change into account, and notifications will be sent out to everyone affected.
Nobody likes a change order, but they’re inevitable in construction, they don’t have to be a headache though. If your phone or tablet is nearby, you are ready to handle a change order and move on. Construction management software allows your team to document the specifics of a change order, get the client’s approval and signature on the change, send automatic updates to your employees and subcontractors, update your schedule and update your budget all within the solution.
Contractors commonly watch half of their day slip away on the phone, or sending countless emails or texts. With TRUE contractor software not only are your team, subcontractors, and clients all using the same system to capture emails and submit updates, but the software itself eliminates the need for most of your messages in the first place with things like shared task lists and detailed reports.
TRUE contractor software stores all the photos and files for your projects and service jobs centrally. Too many project managers fumble around with sharing access to different systems like shared drives, spreadsheets, and email, but when it’s all in one place, documenting every piece of project information is logical and fast. You can store that photo or document for later, and move on knowing that it will be housed along with all of the other project data for quick access.
Since your reputation relies on great client relations, a well-designed construction app gives your client enough access to keep them happy and well-informed and prevent the need for frequent meetings. You clients get their own login credentials to browse updated data (only the data that you’ve chosen to give them access to) and project photos at any time. You can keep on making progress while they check in on their own time.
