  • Construction job costing is a balancing act, you have to accurately calculate the job cost and timeline, while still maintaining your profit margin. How many times have you been underbid on a job estimate? Miscalculations and guesses lead to inaccurate project bids which can keep you from being competitive.

    The busybusy job costing app keeps you on track by accurately reporting labor timelines. busybusy is especially adept at reporting mobile crew times which helps you more accurately identify your true costs.

    INACCURATE JOB COSTING COSTS MORE THAN YOU THINK

    If you aren’t keeping track of your project times, then your estimates are wrong. It’s as simple as that. Most labor estimates go up the chain from the laborer to the shift supervisor to the project supervisor to you. After all those interpretations you will have a time estimate that has been padded, rounded, and inaccurate.

    Accurately calculate the time needed to complete a job. The busybusy mobile time clock gives employees GPS-based reminders to clock in or out as they move from location to location. Use that data alone to calculate the exact time needed to complete a similar project.

    busybusy also offers reporting tools that help you analyze job costing data from past and current projects and to compare that project progress against allocated budgets and labor hours. With the busybusy job costing app, you eliminate guessing and start using exact job costs to verify calculations for new projects.

    GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT

    Most employees round up their timesheets in fifteen-minute increments, over a project’s lifetime, this can add thousands of dollars of inaccurate data to your project estimate.

    Accurately costing a job requires exact data and that’s exactly what you get with busybusy. The GPS-enabled app tracks and reports when and where employees clock in and out, take breaks, or switch between projects – even when there’s no Wi-Fi. An automatic offline mode tracks time and location stamps then reports that data when the connection is reestablished. Share color-coordinated location-based data with the entire crew, or use the employee detail views to get focused insight. Have employees clock in on their own or give supervisors control of time by letting them clock in and out for the group.

    BETTER LABOR AND TIME TRACKING = GIANT SAVINGS

    Gathering payroll can be a day-long process. Running around to job sites, tracking down employees to make changes to their cards, deciphering the handwriting and processing overtime can all add up to wasted time working on overhead. Check out our overhead estimator and see how you are wasting on paper timecards.

    REDUCE OVERHEAD BY AUTOMATING THE PROCESS

    The busybusy job costing app is a cloud-based solution for gathering time cards and allowing managers to review and approve data in the field, dramatically reducing the time needed to run payroll reports. Verified data can be easily exported from our app into QuickBooks or any other accounting software. What’s more, our app connects employee created notes and photos to their project, streamlining the entire project tracking process.

    STOP WASTING TIME LOCATING DATA AND WORKERS

    In addition to tracking time, busybusy helps track workers on the job. Color coordinated pins show you and your crew where each employee is located on a job site – real-time. Every color denotes a different action—green workers are clocked in, yellow are on break and red are clocked out and offline for GPS tracking. Workers can also communicate through the app. Employees can upload photos, documents, job site status updates and other information which can be shared by the project.

  • BUSYBUSY™ – A TIME CARD APP BUILT BY A CONSTRUCTION COMPANY FOR CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES.

    Paper time cards are a waste of time and money. Time and money that you could use to hire more manpower, update and repair machinery, and buy top quality materials.

    So, let’s take a closer look at how paper time cards are costing your business.

    MANAGING CREWS AT SEPARATE LOCATIONS IS LIKE HERDING CATS
    It’s not like you can walk into a cubicle forest and see everyone working efficiently. You rely on supervisors and employees to provide accurate data. It’s time-consuming to drive out to a job site and track down the workers you’re looking for. When crew members are en route, making pit stops, or getting lost, you’re losing money.

    With busybusy™, you can see where your crew is when they clock in. You can even have supervisors clock in groups of workers. busybusy works in the most remote locations. So your team could be building an Alaskan ice road and the next time your device has service, busybusy time cards will automatically relay hours and GPS.

    STOP PAYING FOR PAYROLL BUSYWORK
    According to the American Payroll Association, the average time spent adding up timecards is nearly 10 minutes per card. It is common for organizations with a manual timekeeping and payroll process to spend five hours or more each month processing payroll. Adding in human error, your payroll processing can easily add up to thousands of dollars a year, but are you adding those costs into your project bids? We’ve built a cost calculator. Find out how much you are losing to paper time cards.

    busybusy’s™ time card app removes all need for paper and manual data entry. busybusy™ totals all your employee’s timecards automatically and exports them to the payroll software of your choice.

    DOES ANYONE REALLY ROUND DOWN THEIR TIMECARD?
    Employees tend toward rounding up their time cards to the nearest 10 or 15-minute mark. Sometimes card inaccuracies are not intentional as employees go off faulty clocks or work in different time zones. Then you have to hope payroll can read everyone’s handwriting.

    How many employees have to make zero errors for you to get an accurate estimate on time being paid for?

    busybusy™ records time card data to the second. Data can easily be edited if an employee makes a mistake or forgets to clock in or out. Employees can be added to a group so that supervisors can see their entire crew at once. Supervisors can group clock in and out, switch projects, and more.

    BUDDY PUNCHING – IT’S NOT LIKE SLUG BUG
    Buddy punching, embellishing, rounding, and deliberate padding are major problems in our industry and cost every company thousands of dollars. A software isn’t a complete solution to keeping your employees on task all the time, but with busybusy’s™ GPS data you can view where your employees are when they’re on the clock.

    With busybusy™ you can also get instant updates on the project. Crew members at the site can upload photos and notes so that anyone on your team can access an accurate progress report.

    AVOID OVERTIME DISPUTES AND LEGAL ACTION
    Payroll fraud and overtime disputes are two reasons why a disgruntled employee will haul you off to court. Legally your employees have two to three years to litigate for back pay or suspected payroll fraud. With paper time cards you need to have office space dedicated to storing all the payroll documents and court documents. You then have to decide to digitize the documents, which is costly or run the risk of losing them during a fire, flood, or theft.

    With busybusy™, you’ll never have to store another paper time card. Our cloud-based app stores your information within a secure server, you can then login on any web browser. Employees are less likely to dispute payroll because we record all timecard changes with a username stamp, so they can’t claim that someone else changed their time card. You, as the employer, can have confidence that the records kept by the busybusy™ app hold up in a court of law.

    THE BUSYBUSY™ TIME CARD APP IS A CUSTOM MADE SOLUTION FOR YOUR BUSINESS
    These headaches can be eliminated just by getting rid of paper time cards. Our time card app was developed by a construction business for construction businesses and works on any Android or iOS mobile device, tablet, and web browser.

    We’ve got a Spanish and English version of our app, so every member of your team can start clocking in easily and get to work right away.

  • THE BUSYBUSY™ EQUIPMENT APP BRINGS VISIBILITY TO THE EQUIPMENT ON YOUR JOBSITE
    Whether you have one piece of equipment or a mixed fleet, GPS time tracking can help  know where your equipment is and what project it’s being used for. busybusy brings you a powerful time tracking interface that helps you measure and improve your business through heavy equipment management all in one construction app.

    The busybusy equipment app is available for any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, and/or directly from your web browser to bring you insights into your job sites.

    VISIONLINK INTEGRATION
    If you’ve purchased heavy equipment in the last 10 years, chances are you’ve been collecting valuable information through VisionLink that should be easily accessible to reference for future jobs. Now, with the busybusy GPS equipment app, you can easily connect VisionLink and instantly have that valuable data at your disposal.

    With busybusy’s construction technology, you no longer have to guess where your dozer is or which employee is operating it. Using an equipment time tracking app gives you the better part of the day to focus on the thing that matters most – profitability.

    3 FACTORS THAT ARE PREVENTING YOU FROM BEING PROFITABLE
    With mobile workers and equipment out in the field in multiple locations, it gets a little trickier to manage your jobs. A lot of project managers and construction business owners find themselves  faced with these three challenges:

    1. WHERE IS MY EQUIPMENT?
    You have a lot of money invested into your construction equipment and it is vital to the success of your company. Keeping track of one or two pieces of equipment is difficult enough, but managing a whole fleet across multiple job sites is a huge challenge. Not only is it crucial to know where your equipment is, but it is also valuable to know the current operator or who the last operator was. Equipment tracking software not only gives you better visibility but allows you to plan better for the next job.

    2. WHAT PROJECTS ARE MY EQUIPMENT ON RIGHT NOW?
    If you can’t keep track of your equipment, you probably can’t associate labor costs with a piece of equipment either. This makes bidding a job that much more difficult. Sure, you can manually track the equipment to ensure it is at the right jobsite, but how much time and money are you wasting in this process?

    3. HOW MANY HOURS WAS MY EQUIPMENT USED FOR THIS PROJECT?
    Let’s say you are manually tracking equipment and are trying to associate time spent on the jobsite to the equipment that was used. You may be able to attribute a certain amount of equipment hours to a project, but these estimates are still vulnerable to human error. If you want to get a true handle on your project costs, you need to be able to accurately track equipment hours and tie them to your construction projects. GPS time tracking allows you to ditch the manual recording and get more accurate results too.

    USE THE BUSYBUSY™ EQUIPMENT APP TO PROPERLY MANAGE YOUR FLEET AND MAXIMIZE PROFITABILITY
    The busybusy Equipment App features a GPS time clock that will create complete transparency in your business and let you know your true project costs, so you can be more profitable. There are two major ways you can benefit from busybusy:

    1. VISIONLINK + BUSYBUSY EQUIPMENT APP:
    View all equipment assets on a map

    View equipment fuel levels + equipment hours

    View a complete list of your heavy equipment

    2. VISIONLINK + BUSYBUSY EQUIPMENT APP + BUSYBUSY TIME TRACKING APP:
    View all equipment assets on a map (even without VisionLink)

    View equipment fuel levels + equipment hours

    View a complete list of your heavy equipment

    View current and past equipment operators

    View equipment’s current project

    Associate labor costs with time on equipment

    With the powerful connection between the busybusy Time Tracking App and Equipment App, you now have all your questions answered. You no longer have to worry about where your equipment is, who is on it, and what they are working on. All of the data captured through VisionLink, in real-time, offers useful valuable information that can be brought into busybusy to give you a clear idea of your project costs and improve fleet tracking and overall profitability.

    Knowing where and what your fleet is working on gives you a better understanding of how to better manage resources for your next job. Having real-time data at your fingertips gives you the control you need to grow your business and be more profitable.
