Workflows for Business introduces Lean Construction techniques to complete projects faster and on time, saving money for Building & Construction companies

 

It’s simple really, unlike traditional software, Workflows for Business lean construction software works from the bottom up, starting with individual workers on the site and working upwards to the Site Supervisor and Project Manager.

From the moment they arrive on site each day, all workers already know where they will be working and what their tasks are for the day. This provides unparalleled monitoring of progress and efficiencies for every project. It reduces non-productive office / site admin time, reduces wastage, allows just in time ordering of materials to optimise cashflow, simplifies payroll by using automated timesheets and automates management reporting including compliance reports.

This is all achieved, initially by bulk uploading the information from your existing quoting system. A check of all actual expenditure on each project, is calculated on a day by day basis, together with comparisons back to the numbers used when originally preparing the quotes, to be sure that the project is progressing according to expectations.

It helps Construction Contractors to manage on site teams, scheduling workforce, managing parts and materials (including equipment hired so no unnecessary expenditure incurred) and tracking and monitoring progress of the job so that it is finished by the required completion date. It provides management with an overview of the business activity and performance all in real time.

Designed for Main Contractors, Mechanical & Engineering companies and all subcontractors.

Building, Construction, Equipment installation and covering all trades, including Plumbing, Electrical, Decorators, Roofers, Glazing, Scaffolding and Groundworks.
