A new Deputy
Increasingly, construction operators are turning to mobile devices loaded with smart applications to help boost teams’ productivity and make collaboration between local and disparate teams easier.
For instance, Deputy® is a cloud-based people management application that can help streamline scheduling using intelligent rostering capabilities. The result is helping schedule the right person, and easily notify your staff of their shifts electronically.
It also allows you to generate invoices based on hours worked per customer, task or activity straight into a compatible accounting solution, as well as automatically allocate rates, job codes or employees per invoice line.
For construction operations with disparate teams, ensuring a level of accountability across multiple job sites or premises can prove difficult. With Deputy, staff and contractors can clock on/off on the go using any compatible device using Deputy’s Mobile geolocation capability or the Deputy Kiosk’s camera features for tablets to verify that your employees are where they should be for each shift.
Business apps like Deputy can also help facilitate communication among staff, providing the facility to share important messages with specific locations or across the entire business.
The bottom line
At its core, Deputy helps eliminate the need for unnecessary phone calls and emails to get your employees’ hours. Timesheets are created and submitted for approval when employees start and end their shifts.
