You planned. You built. You conquered that punch list. What now? After the closeout of a project, there’s a plethora of data to sift through. Contractors have to discern what went well, what went wrong, who was held accountable, how well the budget was followed and so much more. Unfortunately, they are often ill-equipped to answer these questions due to siloed data and missing project information. With construction workforce management (WFM), teams can rest assured their historical data is recorded, easily accessible and holistically visible.
Accountability on Every Project, Every Time
Whether a project manager went above and beyond or a journeyman displayed flexibility in learning a new skill, there are a lot of employees to praise on a job. Cloud-based WFM keeps track of these qualified individuals and when they were on a project. This can also solve for accountability. On every project, the right people need to be held accountable for every brick and blueprint. Construction WFM allows for contractors to delegate responsibilities and verify afterwards if the plan was followed. In turn, this allows for better plans on future projects.
Holistically Analyzing Budget Data
A key type of data to assess after a project’s done is financial data. Contractors can determine a lot by finding out if they came in over, at, or under their labor budget. Digital WFM allows teams to house this data so it can be easily viewed and analyzed. As often the most expensive and volatile piece of the budget, labor is a critical piece of the puzzle, and construction WFM helps keep it all organized.
Cloud-Based Project Documentation
The success of a project is largely due to how well a project is documented. As a result, 33% of contractors are looking to increase their document management software with solutions like cloud-based WFM. An accurate look into a project’s life cycle allows for more confident bids on future projects and more realistic budgets. By verifying and refining your data, you ensure that the right person was put on the right projects at the right time.
