Latest Solutions for Timekeeping in the Field


Construction accounting faces some difficult challenges that make it unique when it comes to time keeping. For example, there can be a lot of time lost punching in and out on a time clock while in the field or the hours are inaccurately entered at the end of the day. More importantly, management experiences a huge time lapse between what happens in the field and what appears on office records. This can make it difficult for project managers to determine if the job is on track and within budget, if workers are being efficient, and what the actual cost is for each job.

These problems have given software companies an opportunity to create a solution for this problem. They have created systems that allow workers to enter their time on a mobile device for each project they work on, which can instantly be seen by management from a computer in the office. This allows management to track progress and make changes to a project much quicker. It also provides a more efficient way to accurately record time while in the field.  If you are interested in this feature, contact your software provider.
