WorkMax Rocks It with Mobile Forms and Employee Time Tracking

By: Shannon Corgan, Director of Marketing

Wow! What a great World of Concrete. We met so many people and it was so much fun talking with customers and new folks in the industry we hadn’t met previously. At big tradeshows like these, we also get a chance to meet up with our technology partners like Sage, Viewpoint, Dexter + Chaney and Foundation Software to see all the new features that are helping contractors improve their accounting. It just keeps getting better year after year. My favorite part is learning more about the business challenges related to managing forms (paper and digital forms), time and attendance, asset management and service scheduling and dispatch. My mind becomes a sponge.

This year it was such a stark contrast to our first time at World of Concrete back in 2006 when we would get people coming up to the booth saying that there is NO way they would ever get one of their employees to use a mobile device to do anything. We now have more people coming up to us and asking can you do this or that with my iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet. The answer is yes! I thought I’d share some trends we are seeing and how different companies are embracing more mobile technology. 

I was speaking with a CEO from a scaffolding company at World of Concrete 2016 and he was excited to see how he could use the mobile forms to capture rich media to solve a couple of different challenges he faces currently in his business. He was excited about the opportunity to use the video and photos on the mobile forms to help in the sales process to build accurate estimates or scopes of work for his scaffolding projects. He also liked the idea that his guys in the field could sketch something up or markup a photo within the mobile forms and email it to all of the company experts. He definitely saw this as a way to help leverage the collective knowledge of his entire team to help them solve problems faster while his crews were out on different job sites. He was also interested in combining the mobile forms and timekeeping functionalities to help ensure that employees completed their important daily reports as a part of the clock in and clock out process.

This year at World of Concrete, we had a lot of payroll folks asking us how WorkMax could help them make sure that the actual employee was the one doing the clocking in and out and there was no buddy punching. To keep the costs low for mobile time tracking, they needed to have multiple employees clock in on a supervisor’s iPad, tablet, or smartphone. They were getting pressure from their HR departments to make sure that they weren’t paying people for work they didn’t perform and for proof that they had indeed paid all the right employees for the work that they did perform. They told us they were working much more closely with HR to make sure they had controls in place to avoid exposing their company to risks for lawsuits or Department of Labor audits. I asked if it was due to the increase in lawsuits related to wage theft or any wage and hour claims and they affirmed that this was definitely a big part of it. It was great to be able to show them features that WorkMax offers to absolutely verify that each employee was the right employee recorded in the system with real demonstrations right there in the booth. We had so much interest in what was being shown that we ultimately had to set up a bunch of chairs to allow everyone to see the WorkMax solutions.  During many periods, it was standing room only!
