What is Mobile Resource Management?

2014 is going to be a great year for your business!  The construction industry is on the rise, which means your business is growing!  Now you have more projects, more job sites, and more employees to keep track of!  While growth is good and exciting, it can also be dangerous.  The more your business branches out, the harder it becomes to track.    The more your business grows, the more risk you take on. 

More businesses are turning to mobile resource management solutions to reduce this risk and stay ahead of their competition. 

What is Mobile Resource Management?  It’s the ability to track your mobile resources in Real-Time allowing you to make critical decisions such as what equipment is needed and where.  Which job site needs more employees working on it in order to complete the project on time?  Which projects are over budget? 

Your mobile employees are your largest resource and possibly the hardest to accurately manage.  Knowing who is where and working on what is critical to the success of any project.  Time and attendance programs that track when an employee clocks in and out answers part of the problem however more information is needed to have a complete and accurate picture of where you truly stand on a project. 

That is where a mobile resource management solution is needed.   Not only can you track who clocked IN or OUT but you can also see what equipment they used, what they are on, how many units they completed during their shift, and then compare all of that information to budgets.  Documenting any changes, mistakes, and alterations to the original project allows you to explain delays, justify added expense and give proper praise to a job well done.
