Construction Worker Scheduling Software

Snap Schedule construction crew scheduling software lets you easily schedule workers with the right skills, at the right job sites, at the right time to match workload demands. It is the easiest way for construction companies to transform time-consuming, manual ways of crew scheduling into effortless workforce management.

Cost control has always been a constant struggle for construction companies. Poor shift scheduling on the job site can lead to increased operating costs, overruns, worker turnover, and employee grievances. Construction managers often spend countless hours on shift scheduling, trying to get their shifts and work schedules just right. Over-staffing wastes payroll dollars while under-staffing results in lost time and overrun penalties. Construction shift scheduling presents many challenges. Most construction job sites operate extended hours and have many job positions to schedule and multiple shifts to cover. Within each shift, construction workers must also be assigned to various tasks or job functions. Union and FLSA rules may place restrictions on work hours, overtime compensation, and the types of shift rotation that can be implemented. The schedulers must also consider time-off requests, labor rules, and worker availability when developing schedules for construction companies.

Snap Schedule employee scheduling software, automates construction worker scheduling and simplifies the tedious tasks associated with worker’s time and attendance tracking and labor cost control. It helps companies schedule all types of shifts at multiple job sites and overtime based on seniority, hours worked or declined, call in/out, union rules, and collective agreements. Whether you have 30 employees or 3000, Snap Schedule has all the schedule management features you need to easily create and share worker’s shift schedule, track time off and attendance, and to ensure you have the right crew, in the right place, at the right time.
