LABOUR SOFTWARE FOR CONSTRUCTION
Process labour claims, faster
Simplify how you verify & approve subcontract labour applications
Easily identify if subcontractors are over-booking & eliminate overpaying
Review real-time labour reports & always know any deviation from budget
Does this sound familiar?
Processing labour fortnightly is a time-consuming admin task.
It's difficult to establish if labourers are over-claiming or just making mistakes.
It's hard to keep track of dayworks and variations.
We receive labour claims in many formats, which makes them hard to collate and cross-check.
It's often not clear what works are being claimed for. There are many fact-finding conversations.
We can't see if we're over or under our labour budget, until the end of the project.
Chalkstring can help.
