Site preparation

Complete business system with machine tracking for site preparation companies.


Overview

Complete business system for site preparation companies


Regardless of the job size in ground and civil engineering, it’s crucial to “capture the day.” Continuously gathering information about completed work (working hours and machine time), use of own materials/equipment, and immediate documentation of any change orders is vital. As a ground contractor, you often work from a unit price list, and getting daily reports on progress, resources used, and hours is invaluable.


Working in the area of site preparation can mean anything from adjusting kerbstones or hauling a load of gravel to building port facilities. Our business system contains all the functions you might need if you’re in the industry:



  • documentation support
  • control over the project/project management/roles
  • project permissions
  • purchasing and purchase planning (beta)
  • project economy/monitoring
  • budget/forecast/progressive profit recognition
  • time reporting and approval
  • deviations – questions/answers
  • change order management
  • health, safety, environment and quality support/self-inspections
  • supplier invoice management/cost allocation
  • integrations with finance/payroll
  • mobility/cloud
  • portal/share information collaboratively
  • invoicing.

Daily mobile reporting


It’s hard to find an area of operation where daily mobile reporting has more potential than in the ground and civil engineering sector. For smaller jobs, the daily personal diary suffices for reporting, while larger jobs may require a more formal project diary for complete reporting to the client. Whether the data is obtained via the diary or daily log, the registration can always be supplemented with change orders, photos, and checklists, such as self-inspections.

Machine tracking that optimises your fleet


Next gives you full control over your fleet, allowing you to see when, where, and how your machines are used in real time. With digital machine tracking of production hours, idle times, fuel consumption, service issues, and daily self-inspections, you keep all machines in top condition year-round. Expensive and time-consuming unplanned downtime is minimised as you get a clear overview of all the machines in the company and can plan for service needs. Access extensive data from your machines with digital machine tracking in Next and make smarter decisions that increase your business’s productivity, reduce wear and tear, and save fuel.

Overview

Simplified administration with Next


Plan and assign jobs efficiently with Next, ensuring quick and straightforward invoicing. The platform’s work order management feature keeps you informed about the status of each work order, streamlining the billing process. It automatically incorporates all billable items with the correct markup in the order line for hassle-free invoicing. Additionally, Next facilitates rapid change order management, allowing you to document changes in real-time using both text and photo.


Book demo

Next features functionality specifically developed for companies working in installation and service. Regarding basic functions of project and order management, installers don’t significantly differ from other tradespeople. They handle both larger fixed-price commitments and smaller service jobs, much like builders.



  • project management
  • work orders
  • time reporting and approval
  • Mobile time reporting
  • price list management
  • item management
  • health, safety, environment and quality support/self-inspections
  • photos and documents
  • change order management
  • supplier invoice management/cost allocation
  • invoicing
  • project economy/monitoring
  • budget/forecast/progressive profit recognition
  • mobility/cloud
  • integrations with finance/payroll.

Charge at the item level


Many installers function as resellers of wholesalers’ articles/materials and thus charge at the item level in a way different from the building and ground sector. Often, a significant part of the installers’ business consists of article sales, and considerable effort has been put into automating the handling of items, especially in connection with invoicing them.

Lower purchase costs with Symbrio Integration


For larger installation companies, it’s crucial that purchases are not only managed efficiently but also guide the company to the wholesaler offering the best price for the particular contract. To support this, Next is integrated with the leading provider of purchasing systems for the installation industry, Symbrio. The integration means that purchases are fully handled in Symbrio, but pricing to the customer and further handling of the items, including invoicing and follow-up, occur in Next .

Functionality


In addition to the aforementioned tailor-made functions, Next has all the specific features you would expect from a professional project and business tool. The basic functions include project and order management, integration with finance and payroll, time reporting/recorded hours, supplier invoices, change orders, budget/forecast, cost and revenue tracking, customer invoices, photos and documents, time and resource planning, basis for progressive profit recognition, etc.

Mobile Reporting – Thoroughly document every aspect of your work!


In the specialist contracting sector, capturing every detail of the day’s work is essential. This doesn’t only mean the hours worked, but also encompasses travel, material pick-up from vans and storage, utilisation of bespoke equipment, diary entries, photos, and the logging of any deviations or change orders.

Next’s mobile reporting tool ensures daily, comprehensive reports from your team (emphasising simplicity), guaranteeing you’re compensated for your actual work delivered to clients.

Embracing the change


Many of our specialist contractor clients reflect on the stark contrast between their operations before and after implementing Next, often highlighting the significant benefits of daily, automated data collection. Accurate and complete daily reporting is a game-changer. Consider this: how easy is it to recall Monday’s details on a Friday?

Eliminating redundant work


A welcome advantage for finance and payroll teams is the elimination of manual entry for customer and supplier invoices, as well as payroll documentation. For larger contracting firms, this translates to substantial time savings each month.

Mobile Reporting – Capture everything you do!


If you work in construction as a subcontractor, it’s crucial to “seize the day,” i.e., continuously gather information about the day’s work. By the day’s work, we mean not just the hours spent, but Next reporting also includes travel, picking from the van and storage, using your own equipment, diary entries, pictures, and registering deviations/change orders.

With Next’s mobile reporting, we get your staff to report as above every day (simplicity is key), and you simply get paid for what you’ve actually delivered to your customer.

Daring to take the step


Many of our customers working in building services talk about the time before and after Next, often referring to the dramatic advantage of getting all data “automatically” every day. Reporting every day means both accurate and complete reporting. Honestly, how many can remember on Friday what was done at the beginning of the week?

No more double entry


As a pure bonus, finance and payroll staff are spared all manual registration of customer invoices, supplier invoices, and payroll data. For the slightly larger building service companies, this means many hours saved per month
