Winning the job and planning the budget gets you halfway to success. Tracking your productivity throughout the job gets you to the finish line. With Digital Production Control, you can schedule your crew and their labor hours and track the percentage complete of work. Knowing the percent complete will let you immediately see if you are over budget so you can do something about it. Plus, you have actual hours and costs saved to use on your next bid.
Construction projects start with the best intentions, agreement on specs and scope of work, and document control of change orders. But by the time you are at 50% complete, multiple change orders have turned into a lot of extra work and rework. The result is cost overruns, and profits turned to losses. Digital Production Control (DPC) combines On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid costs and timelines into a plan to track labor production, hours, and costs. Digital Production Control provides the on-the-spot status of the percent complete, so you can make adjustments immediately.
Overtime hours and rework can quickly erode your margins. This causes project delays and strains trust with your clients. Digital Production Control provides real-time data on your projects by monitoring output and tracking cost changes. This process allows you to pre-plan and allocate your resources so that your crew works on schedule according to plans and timelines automatically created.
But it doesn’t have to. Over time as you use DPC, you will have a historic account of data that can help you make more informed decisions on the labor hours required to complete various aspects of a job. Digital Production Control continuously tracks, calculates, and color codes your projects and can raise flags if your project is approaching the red. Stay in the green and keep your green with this productivity and profit tracker. It’s a powerful additive to On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid. This enhanced construction tracking solution allows you to keep the checks and balances that were meticulously made when you started: Finish your project strong.
