An interesting project that we’ve been asked to look at this month is to examine the current timesheet and cost tracking systems for an existing client in the construction sector.Due to their continued success over the last decade, their current paper based timesheet system has become a substantial administrative effort at their head offices. The high volume of paper handled each week and the ongoing requirement for payroll records storage is an issue too.
The requirement is to replace this weekly paper-capture of onsite labour costs, with a simple and robust electronic solution that will work in an industrial environment.
The current A4 paper system is used to inform their BACS payroll, and also allows their operations teams to track labour related costs per site and project.
Fusion’s software and infrastructure specialists have already taken a first look at the requirement and have outlined for our client: a minimalist solution that will connect a simple tablet or smartphone based timesheet capture form to their existing SharePoint based invoice and cost management infrastructure.
The value added elements, once the basic system is up and running, is to allow the timesheet data in SharePoint to dynamically calculate so it can be used to inform their BACS and existing Business Intelligence Systems in real-time.
