Stop Using Paper Time Cards

When you’re on a jobsite, paper time cards are bound to get messy. And when you’re trying to figure out your labor costs, paper time cards are little-to-no help because the data is too hard to see. Start and stop times aren’t as accurate as they could be. Handwriting is tricky to read. Payroll processors make mistakes recording time stamps into the accounting software. Human error (and probably a bit of dirt) is unavoidable when you use paper time cards.

When it comes to excavation, accurately tracking your employees hours is important. Not only is the cost of labor a big ticket item when running a business, but it’s also a huge factor in understanding your costs for a job. Anytime you underbid your labor costs, the overages come straight out of your pocket. To increase you profits, you have to understand your labor costs. This isn’t going to happen if you’re still using paper time cards.

Does your excavation company have heavy equipment? Excavation equipment tracking can give you historical records for each machine, equipment GPS location, machine hours, fuel levels, and more. This gives you the ability to see which machines are making you money and which ones are costing you.
