How to use timesheets in construction
Timesheets are a great way of tracking the shifts that your staff work. However, in the hectic modern construction environment, it can be tough to keep on top of when your staff are clocking in and clocking out of their shifts, which project they are assigned to or what rate you are paying them, meaning you might not be getting as much from your team as you otherwise could, or are not tracking or assigning the costs to projects effectively.
Tracking time digitally using a software like BuilderStorm means you will know whether all your team is making progress on their tasks, especially if used alongside our allocations, to do or daily diary features..
This is not the only benefit of logging your staff’s time. By knowing how many hours you’re spending on a particular job, you’ll be able to more accurately know how much you should be charging and what it’s costing your project and business.
Ultimately, if you can measure something, it is far easier to manage it. Understanding how much time you’re spending on projects is the first step to seeing whether you could be managing your firm’s time better, with reference to your jobs’ progress.
