The interactions between the office and the field are a major area of administrative friction for most construction companies. The process of generating time cards, field notes, jobsite pictures, etc, is often completely separate from the process of getting them into payroll or job records. Why? Wouldn’t it be better if the second a jobsite photo was taken it was uploaded into the job folder? Or that check in/check out timeclock records from your users mobile phones instantly updated the timecards and labor totals on your project plans?
Of course! That’s why Knowify developed its mobile app, with GPS-enabled clock in/clock out, purchasing, reimbursements, jobsite photos, field log notes, and other easy-to-use tools that integrate seamlessly with the rest of Knowify.
Access your business data from the phone, tablet, or laptop
Enable time, expense, and daily log tracking from the field
Track and verify clock ins/outs with GPS
Knowify on the go
The Knowify mobile app will support your team in the field no matter the strength of their connection. If the connection is good, that’s great: the app will update in real time, and allow for seamless field-office communication. But as we all know, some job sites are going to have poor cellular service, and the Knowify app was built with this reality in mind. Our offline mode will let your crews use all of the major functionality in the app when they need it, and will then send that data back to the Knowify cloud as soon as their connection is restored.
Also, for those of you who conduct most of your admin work on the go—generating proposals from the field, for example—we’re pleased to share that the full Knowify application is optimized for tablet, meaning you’ll be able to use it from wherever you might be. You don’t need to be stuck in the office in front of your computer any longer.
Knowify has foreman-specific features in case you would prefer to have a single foreman track time on behalf of his crew, rather than having each person clock in/out individually. Foreman-based timetracking in Knowify supports both clock in/out and manual entry approaches; which one you choose is up to you.
What Knowify users are saying
“Knowify’s mobile app allows me to get a sense of what’s happening on the job site regardless of where I am”
Founder, Vork Brothers Painting
“With many Spanish employees this is the first app I’ve seen that can work in Spanish. And the punch in and clock out feature along with geo fencing is very nice.”
Operations Manager, Coastal Insulation
Know where and what
Thanks to the power of GPS and cloud, the Knowify mobile app will allow you to see the check-in locations for each of your employees as they happen. Want to make sure everyone’s at the right job site? Worried that folks are checking in 5 miles away because they’re stuck in traffic and don’t want to get in trouble? The Knowify mobile app gives you this information at your fingertips. You’ll be able to check the status of your crews even if they work all over the country.
Expenses and reimbursement from the store
Knowify’s Purchasing module is great for large purchases from major suppliers, particularly if you plan to request a quote or arrange delivery. But what about those small things that your crews need to pick up last minute? Things like fasteners or adhesive that you ran out of and needed to make a run to the local building materials supply or hardware store for. The Knowify app takes the pain out of gathering receipts and manually entering them into the accounting system. Now, you can have your employees take pictures of the receipt and quickly process the purchase straight from their phone; once submitted, it will be automatically uploaded to the Knowify cloud, and those costs appropriately allocated to the job at hand.
