busybusy: Why It’s a Contractor’s Best Pal
There are tons of tools and apps out there making big promises – advertising miracles saying they’re going to transform your life. We could tell you about some mystical solution that could make managing a construction business completely effort-free. If that were true, we’d all be in the Bahamas sipping on some fancy tropical drink, letting the big bucks roll in.
But busybusy isn’t in the business of telling you what you want to hear. What we can promise is to vastly simplify tracking labor productivity, estimating project costs, and cutting down on the possibility of mistakes being made. This includes:
- Tracking employee hours w/ Industry-leading GPS
- Providing Multiple Labor Reports per Project, Pay Period, Etc.
- Tracking equipment across your job site
Getting a software/app that does each of those things for your business will help you free up time so you can spend a week or two visiting those sandy beaches.
So without further ado, let’s take a closer look at why the busybusy app might be a contractor’s best pal.
How busybusy Puts Time Back on the Clock
As a contractor, we don’t have to tell you there never seems to be enough time to get everything done. From managing your team to taking care of accounting tasks, there are a thousand and one things to do. The busybusy app can’t put extra hours on the clock, but it can keep you from wasting time, and with all the time it saves you, it will feel like we put extra hours in your workday. You’re welcome!
Even today, tons of contractors still rely on paper time cards to track employee hours. Before we address how unreliable paper time cards are, let’s think for a moment about how much time it takes to transfer the data from an entire crew’s worth of time cards into a spreadsheet, to double and triple-check the time cards and spreadsheet and make sure they are accurate. On top of all that, you have to consider the time it takes to go back through all your past data so you can look up information from other projects. As a time clock app, your crew can punch in and out and all the information is immediately recorded for you. It’s as easy as that, and you can gather all that info right from the app.
Meanwhile, if you need to look up information from past projects, you can keep things organized however you like, so looking up any project is a breeze. There’s no more muddling through piles of paperwork and records from the last few months or years to find what you need. With busybusy, a contractor immediately boosts productivity for the field and office employees, resulting in a measurable profit increase. Technology has made every industry more profitable so it makes sense that it would do the same for construction.
busybusy Helps You Gain Insight
No matter how hard someone works or how many hours they put in on the job site or in the office, they’re not getting anywhere if they don’t have information that really shows what the heck is going on. Especially when it comes to things like understanding the labor burden of each employee or recognizing the value of job costing accuracy. These are the things that can sink a construction company before it even gets up and running. Issues like not being prepared are one of the reasons 70% of those in the construction business eventually fail.
But with busybusy by your side, you can start getting the insights you need to make better decisions more quickly. We’ve already said we can’t promise miracles. However, what we can promise is to provide you a great timekeeping app that is reliable and easy to use. When you combine it with tools like our labor calculator, you’ll be able to make smarter, more informed decisions about your business.
Smoother Sailing on Construction Sites
It should almost go without saying that one of the big benefits of busybusy is how it contributes to smoother and more productive operations on construction sites. One of the things a lot of contractors notice is they’re not the only ones who love this app. Their employees love it too. That can be a big benefit in a world where contractors are always looking for ways to improve their work environments to stay ahead of the current construction labor shortage.
And of course, better time tracking has the overall benefit of reducing labor costs by increasing productivity, which turns out, is a pretty good thing when you’re running a business. Keeping all that in mind, it’s easy to see how having busybusy in your hand – and in your employee’s hands – can add up to some pretty big savings all around.
