In today’s economy, builders are discovering there is a limited amount of experienced people out in the job market to take on more projects so they’re looking for home builder scheduling software to expedite the creation of schedules, improve communication and to better manage the resources that are currently available to them.
To expedite the creation of project schedules they’re integrating their scheduling software with their estimating software to pull in the tasks along with vendors associated with those tasks. They’re also setting up standard project templates to be used for creating new projects.
For Improved communication, many builders and contractors are asking their employees to be more accountable by asking them to update job information in the field which includes:
- Updating Scheduled task’s percentage of completion
- Upload pictures & documents to jobs
- Upload daily job notes
To better manage their resources due to changes in the project they’re using the scheduling software’s interactive Gantt Charts and Calendars to easily change task’s start and end dates and all the tasks dependent upon them.
More technically savvy builders are also integrating their scheduling software with a Builder Web Portal so they can share the up-to-date job schedules, pictures, documents and job notes with their vendors, employees and/or clients so there is no re-entry of information.
Contractors Software Group develops three three series of scheduling software based upon size, needs and budget. The Scheduling Professional product and the other Professional Series applications integrates with CSG Central, a Builder Web Portal for sharing job information with vendors, employees and/or clients.
