In these times of uncertainty around office environments it’s crucial to have a mobile solution for every aspect of your business, including your accounting. STRUCTURE Mobile is the perfect solution to keep you connected to your employees in the field and to keep your jobs running smoothly. With our STRUCTURE Mobile apps, you can bring critical features of STRUCTURE Blue with you into the field.
Eliminate office trips
It’s hard to keep track of your crews when you have multiple jobs, often in different cities and states. Some companies are going completely remote, rarely seeing their field employees. With mobile apps your crew can submit their work no matter where they are. There is no longer a need to write things down and then worry about getting them back to the office. They can enter everything into their smart phone or tablet as it happens.
Mobile apps allow your crew to enter their work from wherever they are, reducing the amount of time spent driving to the office to drop off paperwork and entering that information into the computer. Your efficiency will skyrocket when your system is more automated. Your office staff can spend time doing something other than data entry!
The most accurate information is gathered at the source. Having your crew enter information into the system from their mobile device will improve your accuracy and reduce the chance for mistakes later. Not only are you saving time by having only one person enter information, but you are also saving time by making sure the data is right the first time.
Keep Track of Everything
Keep track of your crew
Mobile apps help you keep track of where your employees are in real time. You know where everyone is and what they are doing all the time. This allows you to make sure you have the right crew in the right place in real time. It also helps you to keep track of crew members who are missing from their jobs or late to work. Catch issues before early, before they become problems.
Keep track of costs
Having real time data on where your crew members are will help you keep track of what costs are associated with what job in real time. You can allocate costs quickly and correctly, giving you the ability to make decisions faster. Stay on top of where your money is going at all times.
Submit change orders in real time
Change Orders are common in construction and can be a big problem if they aren’t handled correctly. Staying on top of them is key to keeping jobs moving and profitable. Mobile apps let you write up a change order in the field and capture all of the critical information right from the source. You can capture the customer’s signature on the spot and send a copy to the office and the customer simultaneously.
Bill customers immediately
With mobile apps, you no longer need to wait for customers to sign papers and then for your field techs to bring them to the office. You can capture an electronic signature and send the virtual paperwork to the office immediately.
Mobile apps are not only convenient, they are necessary for doing business these days. They are a fast and efficient way to connect your field employees with your office to keep everyone up to date at all times. Being able to track employee time, material, equipment, and change requests via mobile apps saves you both time and money. You will be amazed at how much more efficiently your office runs with less paperwork and more productivity!
