There’s no company in any industry that has succeeded without spreadsheets. Let’s briefly pause to say, “Bless you, Excel. You’ve served us well.” But spreadsheets are not the answer to construction workforce management. As working-at-home and the need for social distancing continues into 4Q 2020, digitizing construction workforce management is even more necessary.
Say goodbye to your monthly/weekly spreadsheets. You need up-to-date information when and where it’s needed.
Stop Supervising and Start Managing
Technology has become a bridge for overcoming the distance
of a team working remotely. –Ben Schultz
Spreadsheets encourage us to work alone. Digitization forces us to collaborate, share, and communicate. And that’s the best way to manage your business. About 90% of all spreadsheets have errors serious enough to trigger:
- Faulty forecasting
- Labor shortages
Because your team is mobile, you need to be able to access information from anywhere, anytime. Your project site personnel should be able to quickly access the same analytics available to your accounts payable/receivable professional working from their home office. And you don’t want statistics that apply to your construction workforce management situation 10 days ago.
You can manage the following using shareable, intuitive, cloud-based construction workforce management software in real-time:
- Current wage
Ask other successful companies what kind of cloud-based software they recommend. But remember – what works for their organization may not be a good fit for your team.
Getting Started: How To ‘Digitize’
Review and prioritize your organization’s pain points, which may include:
- Information-sharing delays between the project site and office
- Inefficient performance measurements/management
- Insufficient risk management
- Paper documents – who has what/where
- Project planning getting more complex
Whatever paper forms you use most often should be the first you digitize.
If employee retention is among your construction workforce management goals, digitization increases mobile workforce efficiency. “Mobile” forms work on mobile devices – like cellphones – which make it convenient for workforce management teams.
