Modules for Construction
Construction management should ensure high labor productivity. Meeting deadlines, competent resource allocation, activity monitoring and risk mitigation are those tasks that need to be performed at each stage of the building company activity.
There are many ways to tie individual business processes into one chain and make the team’s actions goal-oriented. Today we have prepared a list of modules for building and construction that accelerate processes and provide easy management for everyday tasks.
Automated planning allows you to manage information related to the construction processes, the scope of work, labor intensity, materials required to perform work in one place. By planning the scope of work monthly\weekly, the team can analyze the task progress (its completion status).
The Projects Module and Tasks Module are designed to fill out project information, divide them into subtasks and impose deadlines. All data can be entered into the system by main activity types or by the created plan for each month/week separately.
Thus, your managers can create a scope for each type of work construction. The Agenda board allows you to decompose a project into several parts and set the status of each task. This way, the team gets clear deadlines and knows how long it takes to complete a specific task by adhering to timescales.
The activity of companies is closely linked to a large number of reporting documents. Nevertheless, the immense amount of paper copies reduces work efficiency and increases costs.
The workflow automation module allows you to create, store and manage contracts, payments, invoices, as well as monitor all stages of editing, approval or sharing. Moreover, the module stores built-in templates that help reduce the time to enter data manually. The Role-based access control (RBAC) feature allows you to get different permissions to view the needed documents. Thus, on the one hand, the module improves document sharing and gives instant access to certificates, lists, orders and so on. On the other hand, only assigned workers can open, copy or transfer the data.
Material flow management
Material flow, as well as placement and control, cannot be carried out by the only one employee. Moreover, the manager needs time to check all types of resources because human error can occur. Such constant control makes resource management time-consuming and exhausting.
The Materials Management module for construction and building companies allows you to analyze resource use day by day, evaluate surplus or shortage of materials, and also notify you of any changes considering the inventory status. Thus, managers are aware of the state of things and are able to replenish the stock when it is necessary. The ability to set priorities allows you to indicate what orders you want to focus on if you have constraining factors (by time, resources, contract terms, etc.). You can view the number of materials, monitor their status and analyze the way things are by a certain period using the module.
The manual and semi-automatic mode of activity monitoring slows down the construction process as there are time intervals related to the additional information processing. When these processes are automated, managers can report on productivity metrics in real-time. They can also analyze and monitor resources or sales status.
As the project moves on, the manager enters data on all kinds of construction works, as well as complete information on material and technical resources in case they have been changed. After entering new data, the system compares the actual plan with the current situation. If there are no deviations, the system doesn’t report errors and the user can keep working, view project statistics, generate reports, etc.
Employees need to know how their workflow is moving on and how efficiently they cope with tasks. Firstly, automated management allows to monitor employees’ progress and increase their productivity along with engagement in the process. Digital dashboards display all the necessary indicators tied in with forecast, planning, analysis of various KPI metrics. Thus, employees have more information about how they perform their work. Secondly, online tools facilitate different ways of communication among employees. Using the Messenger Module, the team can keep in touch and exchange information online. Finally, by setting different levels of access your employees can view a list of tasks assigned to them, quickly switch from project to project, and monitor the deadlines for each task.
