The Problem

Slotegraaf Construction is a custom home builder that has served the Ontario, Canada community for over 40 years. From creating lavish indoor swimming pools to comfortable outdoor spaces, Slotegraaf renovates, designs, builds and customizes residential homes across Ontario. 

In-house Construction Software Wasn’t Working

With a full-time programmer on staff, Slotegraaf created an in-house software to help manage their people, projects and more. For a few years, this worked. Eventually, Slotegraaf noticed limitations within the software and its struggle to keep pace with the company’s ongoing backlog of work. They knew their in-house solution wasn’t going to work long-term. Slotegraaf needed to find a platform that created efficiencies and allowed them to move on from their in-house software so they could focus on what they do best — renovating and building custom homes for families to flourish in. 

The Solution

Teaming up with Procore first, Slotegraaf had their project management box checked. Next, Slotegraaf signed up with LaborChart and integrated the workforce management platform with Procore, creating a perfect combination of construction technology. 

Workforce Management Software Helps Take Care of their People

At Slotegraaf, they place a heavy focus on taking care of their workforce. This focus ensures they have a steady roster with a consistent skill set that provides undeniable service for their customers. With a strong adoption of new technology, Slotegraaf can now manage their most important asset — their people, much easier. They have one view where they can see all of their employees at the same time, identify gaps in planning and ensure they can accomplish their labor scheduling mission — to keep everyone on their roster employed all week, every week. 

The Results

With their previous in-house software, Slotegraaf had to manually write up time sheets and hand out individually so workers knew where they were going the next week. Now, they can send a simple text message to everyone with scheduling for the next week and communicate any mid-week assignment updates through LaborChart. 

Real-time Information Improves Accuracy and Financial Planning

To take it one step further, Slotegraaf’s finance group also uses LaborChart. The cloud-based platform that houses real-time information helps with financial planning, developing accurate customer invoices, creating a quarterly sales forecast and much more.

Across the organization, LaborChart and Procore have helped transform Slotegraaf and the way they run their business. From ensuring accuracy and taking the guessing game out of the equation to creating one source of truth they can lean on, Slotegraaf has successfully adopted new construction technology and has set their business up for success today, tomorrow and beyond
