It’s a question that comes up from time to time: “If It’s Not Broken, Why Fix It?”
We always say: “Just because it isn’t broken (yet) doesn’t mean you still can’t fix it.”
When it comes to managing your job site, does your traditional style perform to the highest standards possible? Maybe it has been working really well, but could there be a smoother way to operate? If your current system of… lets say… paper and pen reporting is working well, challenge yourself and ask: “Could there be a way that is even easier, faster, and better?”
Imagine a work day where you could monitor the time your staff are arriving and leaving with a “check in/check out” digital time card feature, have a live chat with onsite staff at various job sites, upload and share files, place personal orders directly to your vendors, alongside other administrative tasks, all from your mobile device.
Within minutes, you are able to complete multiple tasks while being mobile and as a bonus, no messy paperwork was invited!
In business, you have to be innovative or you will find yourself sinking. These days, the death is much faster due to quickly changing economic conditions and the speed with which business decisions are made.
When you find yourself coming back to the question of “If It’s Not Broken, Why Fix It?” keep in mind that remaining relative in a competitive industry is the best thing you could do to sustain and elevate the success of your business. However, doing so requires an efficient and modern process that can provide an opportunity to track new work (and that is beneficial to your staff as well).
Most of your team members will make the connection that greater company success equals job security, quality projects, and more work experience.
In this digital age, the construction and trade business is experiencing an influx of the younger, tech-savvy generation joining the workforce. Taking advantage of the skill set they come with isn’t rectifying a problem, it is being proactive before the problem occurs (and in the trade industry, we know how important that is!)
