Online job allocation and reporting process to better manage your workforce
Managing a sub-contractor workforce involves an extensive paper trail, emails and time-consuming face-to-face meetings. Yet, even after doing all this, it can still be difficult to ensure your hired workforce conducts their work in a safe, efficient and quality manner. Paperwork gets lost, putting contracts at risk especially when workers onsite can change from day to day. Delays and budget blowouts impact business relationships. All of which challenge your ability to efficiently and productively project manage jobs.
Bristile Roofing, a national company in the domestic construction industry, met the challenge by implementing a standardised visual training, job allocation and compliance reporting solution that provided high visibility into its sub-contractor workforce.
Increase workforce visibility to improve compliance
Bristile Roofing realised it needed a solution to better manage its sub-contractor labour force employed across Australia. With constantly changing workforces common on its multiple projects nation-wide, the company wanted to manage its onsite workers better to guarantee quality and prevent possible incidents.
With a largely manual, time-intensive reporting system, national visibility into the currency of site information was limited and costly. Bristile Roofing wanted to ensure that all individual workers were compliant and competent to carry out any work on their behalf.
Automate manual processes to reduce expenditure
To further enhance the service offered to their clients and improve the confidence and competence of its workforce, Bristile Roofing needed to transform how it educated and managed its sub-contractors.
Considerable time and resources were being wasted manually entering data, checking spreadsheets and chasing up contractors to provide documentation and update information.
The company required a solution that would provide visibility into all contractors awarded work, simplify processes and better leverage existing budgets.
Employee digital solution to reduce paperwork
CodeSafe developed and deployed an integrated mobile digital solution that included electronic job allocation, pre-start safety compliance reporting and post-job quality assurance reporting.
Moving from a paper-based process to a real-time, digital-based system enabled Bristile Roofing to quickly and easily capture all the required information from workers wherever they were. This information is then fed into live dashboards giving management full visibility into its sub-contractors across Australia.
By integrating the QIN platform with Bristile Roofing’s existing project management software solution, further efficiencies were guaranteed.
