  • Proactively set expectations for each crew:
  • Line out the crew with scheduling sheets by area
  • Drive more work by stretching the man hours for the list of action items
  • Send actual production rates and data back into the estimating process for the next bid

What's Special About Digital Production Control?

On Center Software's Digital Production Control incorporates information from takeoff, to bid, to build. DPC integrates information from OST (takeoff) and QB (bid) and brings it all together at the convenience of the contractor's fingertips.

Line-out Your Crew

Using the estimated production rates, found in your bid, Digital Production Control helps you assign tasks to one or many crew members at the start of each day.

Thanks to DPC, guessing the amount of scope the crew should accomplish on any given day is no longer necessary.

Cost overruns are a headache, mainly because they cut into profits and usually go undetected until the end of the job.

Digital Production Control prevents cost overruns by monitoring labor production output and instantly spotting any production lags.

During the project, DPC calculates and illustrates the project to be over, under, or right at budget.

Improve Your Estimators

Over time, material costs change, construction techniques change, building codes change, and crews change.  How is the estimating department supposed to effectively keep up with the constant shift?

On Center Software has the solution you need to improve communicating field data back to the estimator.

Send ACTUAL labor production data from the field to the estimator using DPC. Then leverage this collected field data to make the next estimate tack sharp.

  • Stop project overruns by looking at actual labor worked and materials installed
  • Immediately understand the impact of scheduling delays
