Improving job costing for sub-contractors
How can this application help improve your operations?
Sundial-Pro improves operations by monitoring, in real-time, the job, employee (labor) and status. As your employee's clock in and out of jobs, all of your direct, indirect and overhead costs are calculated automatically.
Can workforce management tools help my sub-contracting business?
What we are really talking about here is the elimination of paper-based logging. Once you add some employees and their wages (hourly or salary), employees can use a self-service time clock to log in and out of jobs or job sites. With just our software, you will have eliminated the time lag between what's happening in the field, when it gets entered or aggregated back at the office and finally when it gets into a managers hands for analysis and improvement.
Is my sub-contracting business capable of utilizing job costing software today?
Any employee with a smartphone, or near a tablet or PC, can perform the tasks necessary to capture the job costing information you need to build a better business. On top of that, your management team will have a birds eye view of the real-time status of all employees and all jobs, because the updates from the field come directly to their own smartphone, tablet or PC.
As a sub-contractor, how can this software help maximize profitability?
Since the software tracks employee time against each job individually, down to the minute and second, you can use all of this historical data to compare your job bids against the actual job costs. Once you can quickly calculate and total the direct and indirect costs of a job, you can make changes to improve productivity and overall performance of your estimating process, as well as your current operations.
