Benefits Of Integrating Tech In Your Construction Company
It is no secret that construction tech has taken huge strides over the past couple of years and it is evident that it is here to stay! Recently, there has been a massive influx of companies adopting and embracing modern technology into their business operations. A construction software market research report indicates that by 2023, 87% of construction companies will be using some form of construction software in their businesses!
Construction software and mobile applications have been built to cater to the unique requirements of companies working in the trades. They have been designed to help streamline everything from administration tasks, employee time tracking, project management, scheduling and much more. The end goal here is to help you as the business owner save time, money, and yes, a little bit of your sanity.
Generally speaking, at the end of the day you need to be able to turn a profit in order to prosper. So what construction software can do for you is eliminate the time wasted on repetitive tasks, increase productivity and in turn, stop your bottom line from taking a hit with excessive operational costs.
Let’s take a second to paint the picture. You are a company that has 5-30 employees, you have considered migrating to tech solutions but are weary of the costs associated and the initial investment of time to get up and running, or maybe you just haven’t had the chance to see the benefit yet. In this case, there is a good chance you are most likely doing almost everything manually. We have surveyed multiple companies and looked into their operations and analysed how much of their time is spent executing basic tasks.
Here’s a hypothetical, not far from reality example. Employees fill out their time sheets each week, let’s say it takes approximately 10 minutes each week to fill out their hours and submit it the office. You or your administration will have to manually process these time sheets into your payroll taking an additional 10 minutes per employee. (Taking into account these sheets are legible and don’t have any dishonest, dodgy entries that require review on your end). Already we’re squandering 20 minutes per employee per week. Per month that totals 1 hour per employee solely on logging worked hours. Bear with me here, assuming you’re doing it yourself or paying someone $20/ hour, your costs associated is $20/ month/ employee. Multiply that by the number of employees in your company, i.e. 20, that is already $400 out the door. (Click here for our online cost calculator).
Think about that for a minute and relate it to your own company… What else could you have done with that $400 each month? Maybe some new tools? Training courses? You get the point. More importantly, what else could you have done with that extra 20 hours? Land a new job, meet with prospects, or simply have more personal time with the family.
One of the major issues small to midsize businesses face is that they easily get drowned in their workload. Evenings are for paperwork, weekends are for catching up, etc. Migrating to digital solutions is much more than just being organized and saving money. It’s about eliminating the redundant, unnecessary workload you take on as a business owner.
