Scheduling construction. Sounds simple enough, but a plethora of questions surround this vital task. Who do you have available? How can you communicate last minute adjustments? How do you even send out the schedule? With workforce management software, an organization’s communication can go from fragmented to streamlined by providing a holistic view of the company.
From Pen and Paper to Drag and Drop
Construction project scheduling — and control — can make or break a job. When a project manager is in sync with supervisors and field labor, it’s easier to stay on track. For most organizations, scheduling is done on a spreadsheet, whiteboard or even on paper. However, this means there is limited-to-no insight about who’s available or how to request a certain person on a jobsite. With cloud-based workforce management, dispatching individuals or groups of laborers can be done with the click of a button and even sent as a simple text message.
Workforce Management Tools for Success
For many organizations, hours are wasted on unanswered phone calls and confusing email threads about labor planning. When teams are unaligned between the field and the office, digital workforce management creates a proactive approach to being productive when an entire team can find up-to-date schedules anytime, anywhere. With a simple tool, communication not only becomes a breeze, but also levels up current processes.
Using Digital Communication to Modernize
The next generation of skilled labor is used to alerts being at their fingertips — so why should workplace communication be any different? When information is readily available and communicated to the right individuals at a moment’s notice, everyone can more efficiently get the job done. For contractors around the world, attracting fresh talent is top of mind — and using software to standardize effective communication is a great way to do so. Scheduling in construction management is already hard enough, and fresh forms of communication can make a real difference in your organization.
