New Smart Phone App for the Construction Industry

posted 06.02.2014
Mark Shaw of AMS Building Services has created a smart phone app than allows his staff to clock in remotely when they start work. The Cloud based software and app also allows staff to log in to any task or location with a GPS location stamp, request holidays and book in or out of jobs.

Mr. Shaw said, “As the owner of a construction company, my main frustration in the past has been the inaccuracy of recording the hours and attendance of staff. Not only did employees often inaccurately estimate their working hours using paper time sheets, we also wasted a lot of time collecting them and entering the data manually. I felt that with all the wireless technology we now have available, there had to be a better way.”

After trialling the software and app in multiple companies across the East Midlands for several months, he is now marketing it across the industry.

“Our feedback has been great – users reported that the software gave them a range of information which in turn helped them to monitor costs and activity far more accurately. Our industry has suffered more than most during the recession, and so we need to look at ways of ensuring maximum productivity at a sustainable level.”
