WorkMax TIME, FORMS, and ASSETS by AboutTime Technologies Enriches Integration with Top Construction Accounting Systems and ERPs

Clones accounting system project cost and organizational structure for accurate daily job costs to minimize reallocations with Permission Profiles

(Payson, UT – May 14, 2019) AboutTime Technologies, a 16-year veteran of on-premise and cloud- based mobile resource management, today announces that it has expanded its integration with the top construction accounting systems and ERPs with WorkMax TIME, FORMS, and ASSETS. WorkMax is an easy-to-use cloud-based platform for employee time tracking, mobile forms, and asset tracking that allows project-based businesses to manage each of their mobile resources all in one place.

Permissions Profiles allow businesses to accurately track daily job costs and drastically reduce reallocations or adjustments to job costs after-the-fact. Permission Profiles allow users to create a unique profile with a set of individual permissions that can automatically be assigned to new employees. Most project-based businesses have hundreds, if not thousands of cost codes or tasks to track a project’s job costs and completed work. Permission Profiles determine what employees see when they’re entering their completed work and labor hours. This ensures that they are assigning their labor to the right jobs, projects, locations, tasks, cost codes, or assets. With Permission Profiles, employees can only select tasks or cost codes that are part of the appropriate project cost structure based on what’s been set up in the business’ accounting system or ERP.

Permission Profiles can also restrict which mobile forms are visible to employees in the WorkMax application. Only the employees that need to complete the mobile forms are able to view them and saves the employee’s time instead of searching for the mobile forms they need to complete. Permission Profiles can be set up to automatically apply permissions to track more than employees, jobs, cost codes/tasks, devices, assets, and forms by creating or importing custom list items. Custom lists provide businesses with the flexibility to track whatever they need. Examples of custom lists include employee leave codes, certified classes, or per diem allowances.

“We kept hearing that project-based businesses spent too much time reallocating job costs due to data entry errors by field employees. The bigger the list of jobs or cost codes the more adjustments they had to make in their accounting system or ERP. Also, the project job costs and completed work was always out-of-date. We looked at the data visibility goals that our customers wanted to achieve in their accounting systems and ERPs for job cost accuracy and mirrored those options in WorkMax. With Permission Profiles, we gave them an easy way to get the right data to the right employees at the right time for real-time accurate project job costs,” said Ryan Remkes, chief executive officer of AboutTime Technologies.

WorkMax has powerful and robust integrations with the top construction accounting and ERP systems including:

Mike Merrill, COO of AboutTime Technologies, will be demonstrating Permission Profiles for the first time at the TUG 2019 National Conference on Tuesday, May 14th at 10:45 AM CDT at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. TUG is the national user group for Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate, Sage 100 Contractor, and Sage Estimating.

What is WorkMax?

What is WorkMax? Why now?

By: Ryan Remkes, CEO

WorkMax is the total sum of everything learned from delivering resource management software solutions to many, many businesses over the last decade. WorkMax is modern, fast and completely scalable. The platform of modules affords businesses of any size, shape and industry to enjoy modern resource management exactly the way they need it. WorkMax is the culmination of real-world customer needs learned from AboutTime, in a beautiful, modular web-based solution to help customers better manage TIME, ASSETS, FORMS, FIELD SERVICE and REAL-TIME BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE. 

Internally, WorkMax has been known around our corporate office as “Next-Gen” for a couple of years now. The ambitious design-build journey towards what is about to be better known as WorkMax actually began in 2003. AboutTime set out to solve the problems companies face every day in tracking and managing their most valuable resources. AboutTime was built to solve the complex business problems that ERP, accounting, HR and other software solutions do not. 

“Experience matters to our customers.”

AboutTime has enjoyed great success and will continue to succeed for many more future customers as the leading on premise, enterprise resource management solution. Remember the time before mobile was “cool”. Surprisingly, it wasn’t that long ago. AboutTime was doing “mobile data collection” before the term existed and long before Apple iPhones, iPads and Android mobile devices existed. We were helping companies capture accurate mobile and remote data before BlackBerry was crowned (then later dethroned) the “king” of mobility. You’ve got to go all the way back to the PALM Pilot and Pocket PC days to get to the core of our resource management experience. AboutTime has always been and will continue to be an innovator and leader in on premise resource management.

So why WorkMax now? 

Innovation and the desire to get better is ultimately the driving force for our amazing team. We thrive on leading the way in helping our customers work smarter and get better. The concept for the WorkMax platform went like this: “Let’s start with what we know is true, what we’ve learned from many years in the industry and let’s give our customers exactly what they really want. Let’s do it in a flexible way that exceeds customer expectations. Let’s make WorkMax flexible, beautiful and affordable. Let’s change the game for how businesses manage their mobile, remote and local resources.”

What we now know is true:

Over the years we have talked to thousands of businesses in dozens of industries and we know every one of those business has challenges tracking and managing mobile, remote and local resources. Consistent findings are:

  1. Today’s businesses want a better, smarter way to track TIME, ASSETS, FORMS, FIELD SERVICE, but they all need different user configurations – flexible modules. 
  2. Although each business is unique; their resource management challenges are NOT unique to the industry they serve, the size of the business or the services provided by the business.
  3. Today’s businesses believe simple technology improves efficiency in business. Additionally we now know web-based solution benefits can outperform traditional on premise software. Internet speeds, data security and web infrastructure now affords best-of-breed web-based solutions to be not only A choice, but the PREFERRED choice for many of today’s decision makers. 

What we know matters to our customers.

EVERYONE is getting better, including your competitors. Technology is helping people work smarter and helping companies get more accurate data, faster. Everyone is becoming more efficient with their resources and your customers are learning (and being taught) to expect it. We are all in business for the customer, the WorkMax platform is built to help your team eliminate waste, increase automation, improve company efficiencies and most of all… to better serve your customers.

Can we help your business work smarter and get better?

I think we can. Every business is different and only you can determine if WorkMax or AboutTime is a good fit for YOUR business. I am confident you will know it when you see it. We realize we won’t be everything to everyone as there are many good technology solutions out there and then there are some very stubborn companies that just fear change.

“If you don’t like change you will like irrelevance even less.”  

How will we define WorkMax success?

We believe WorkMax will surpass your expectations, the platform is truly flexible, scalable and affordable. Implementation is incredibly rapid. We have made it very easy to try WorkMax in your business and customers should see great results within days. Our incredible team has invested enormous amounts of time, attention to detail and expertise into delivering one complete platform of modern resource management modules. So how will we know we’ve hit a home run with the WorkMax? When our customers tell us so.

Welcome to Modern Resource Management. Welcome to WorkMax.
