How To Save Time With Automation & Improve Your Construction Workflow
There is no one in the residential construction industry who doesn’t face long to-do lists and critical deadlines. How do you get everything done and done well? Solving this simple-sounding, but complex, challenge is the key to getting projects completed on time, building a trusted relationship with your builders and boosting your profits.
Not Enough Time in Your Day
One of the biggest problems with a long to-do list is not having enough time to dedicate to difficult issues and projects because you’re too busy taking care of the mountain of everyday details. Yes, there are tasks and projects that run smoothly. The reason you tend to remember the ones that don’t is, in part, the frustration you feel in trying to carve out enough time to deal with them. Imagine if you had twice as much time to deal with a problem. Wouldn’t solving it seem easier?
Repetitive Administrative Work Distracting from Priorities
If you don’t have twice the time, you have to try to rush to a solution. However, not giving enough time and attention to problems can have consequences, and poorly-thought-out solutions can hurt the overall quality of a project and affect the timelines of other project participants. It can also damage your relationship with your builder, potentially leading to less work from that source in the future.
You need to carve out time to spend on priorities. Anyone can process and complete an order or job that runs smoothly. You get noticed (positively) and set yourself aside from the competition by dealing well with the challenges that inevitably occur. Taking problems off your builder’s plate makes you an exceptional service provider.
The best way to carve out time for the big issues is to reduce time spent on the countless repetitive processes that are involved in every order or project — New order processing, Scheduling and Dispatching, Material Resourcing, Managing and tracking status and completion. Automation in construction can enhance these workflow processes, reducing the time you and your staff need to spend on them and eliminating the problem of human error.
Save More Time With Automation
To reap the full benefits of automation, you need a solution specifically designed for residential contractors and suppliers, like Hyphen's SupplyPro GM.

Whether these issues involve office or on-site personnel, builders, homeowners or other trades, you’ll have the time to focus, resolve problems quickly and get things back on track. Expensive mistakes or problems can be quickly corrected and everyone, including you, will have less stress and more satisfaction on the job.
