Challenges

As one of the nation's top general contractors, Crossland Construction employs 1,000 workers performing in 41 states. The company needed a more robust solution to support its unique needs as a construction-specific organisation that was looking to streamline workforce management processes. It was important to find a solution that paid employees accurately, as site superintendents often forgot to manually track employee time, causing inevitable pay accuracy issues.

What Crossland Construction needed was a solution that could:

  • Track employee time automatically to ensure accurate pay for all employees
  • Reduce payroll processing time to give employees quick access to funds
  • Eliminate unnecessary labour costs associated with rounding up hours and inaccurate pay
