Digital Construction Workforce Management — What’s the Real ROI? [VIDEO]

When it comes to the business of construction, you hear a lot about trying to obtain a return on investment (ROI). There’s a lot of guarantees, false promises, hopeful wishing and unfortunately at times, not a whole lot of following through. However, achieving ROI is critical for success. Without it, it’s impossible to continuously improve, obtain new resources or build new ideas. 

Achieving an ROI in the construction industry can be the difference between success and failure. 

You need to have the right tools, people and resources that set you up for the right jobs that fit your business. 


Electrician Needs Scissor Lift Certification 

From general to speciality contractors, needs and requirements can vary depending on the type of job, required skill set and more. No matter what, storing and keeping track of this information is a tall task and extremely important. Proactively knowing when a certification is expiring for one person takes some research, but doing it for an entire workforce can be daunting. LaborChart can help with this.

In the video below, we’ve outlined a simple ROI scenario. In this example, an electrical contractor achieves tremendous ROI after implementing a digital workforce management tool — one that tracks these certifications, skillsets and other critical people and project data. Without digital workforce management, the contractor would have lost a lot of time and a lot of money.

But with it? Well, just play the video below.


True Success Goes Beyond Dollars and Cents

Calculating your ROI isn’t always necessarily tied to money—that’s too easy. Discovering real ROI comes when you consider time savings, boosting employee morale and creating peace of mind throughout your organization. These factors can be hard to measure, but easy to notice over time. When combined, ongoing consideration of these elements can set your business up for success today and into the future.
