Wireless Forms

There are a ton of moving parts at most construction sites, so rather than trying to keep track of piles of paper work orders, the switch to a digital solution helps to introduce a level of controlled organization to what could otherwise be mere chaos.

  • Reduce errors
  • Enhance worker organization
  • Track results

Barcode Scanning

Big equipment is one thing, but there’s also a bounty of tools that are used at job sites. Often times these are all used by multiple people. Safeguard them by implementing a check-out and -in system using barcodes.

  • See who last had tools
  • Know if anything hasn’t been returned
  • Reduce instances of theft

Messaging

Safety is one of the biggest concerns at any construction site. Secure, intra-company messaging allows you to blast messages out to everyone on site, including urgent safety messages, to make sure everyone is on the same page.

  • Improve safety record
  • Enhance communication
  • Save time

Timekeeping

There’s plenty to do when a job is underway that it doesn’t make sense to have workers waste precious minutes starting their day by clocking in at the home office. Instead, let them punch in remotely and spend their full day working.

  • Reduce excessive downtime
  • Increase worker accountability
  • Save money from unnecessary overtime

Use Cases

Encore is able to provide construction companies like yours with critical data that can help enhance workforce efficiency.

General Construction

In order to streamline their methods for collecting data in the field, without all the excess paperwork, an industrial construction company took advantage of Encore’s Job Dispatching and Timekeeping features. Now, the management team can run reports that include all the details about employees, including time on the clock and how long each spends on various projects, allowing them to maximize their teams moving forward.

Transit

A major urban transit company needed a way to minimize the inefficiencies that came with trying to keep track of the piles of physical forms used for each of its many open projects. Encore’s Wireless Forms provided a way to save money by cutting down on excessive paperwork while increasing productivity. With everything digitized, management can run data-based reports to better understand project needs.

Electrical Work

An electrician needed a way to monitor their workers once they were on the road, traveling to customers. Encore gave the owner the ability to track vehicle whereabouts in order to efficiently dispatch new work orders. Plus, reports gave insight into each driver’s behavior, including speeding and hard stopping. Combined, the owner was able to increase the number of jobs completed daily, decrease risk from unsafe driving, and save money due to wasted fuel.
