How To Track Job Status, Completions & Field Crew Locations With Ease
Residential construction is a busy industry these days, as builders push to increase supply in a high-demand market. To take advantage of this and grow your insulation business, you need to increase the efficiency of your operations. How? By maximizing the use of your field crews. To schedule effectively and minimize downtime, you need to know exactly where your crews are in real time, when they will complete their present job and how long it will take them to reach the next one.
Multiple Projects To Complete In A Day With No Centralized Scheduling Tool
The main problem faced by insulation contractors in boosting efficiency is the lack of a tool to effectively track crew locations, construction job progress and completions all in one place. Insulation jobs often take less than a day, but unless you have accurate real-time tracking, it’s difficult to schedule multiple jobs in a day with any confidence or accuracy. Multiply that problem by multiple crews and scheduling becomes even more complex and inefficient. You can easily end up with one crew racing to finish on time while another is sitting around waiting for work. Or find that your best crew for spray applications is an hour away from where you need them right now.
Additional Work Requests Come Through
In the meantime, more job requests are coming through from your busy builders. They need you to respond quickly, so they can move on to their next task. You need to respond quickly to lock down the job. So when can your crew be onsite for the new job? If you don’t have this information at your fingertips, you’re slowing down projects and jeopardizing your profitability.
Incorporate A Residential Construction Scheduling Software
The scheduling feature within Hyphen Solutions’ SupplyPro GM can help you take advantage of more opportunities with less stress. It gives you a single location at which to track job status, completions and your field team’s exact location at all times. Your field crew enters information about their tasks on a bilingual app that is easy to use and works even when disconnected from the internet. You can access that information, wherever you are, in real time, and use it to solve your scheduling headaches.
If you get a new request to install insulation in a house, for example, you can use the SupplyPro scheduling feature to see what crews are close by and have just finished their previous job. You can then easily dispatch them to complete the new request, sending them all the information they need to locate and complete the job within the app.
Tracking your crews and their status and readiness for the next job makes it easier to complete more than one job per day at different sites and increase your volume without adding workers.
