In the trades, it can be difficult to manage workloads. Demand fluctuates from one season to the next. Sometimes, you have way more jobs than you can take on, and other times there isn’t enough work to go around. No matter which end of the equation you’re on, a labor sharing app can help. Here’s how you can harness the power of technology to manage your workload!
What ConX Can Do for Your Business
We designed our app with the tools and capabilities contractors need to manage their workloads with ease. We understand that you don’t have a lot of time to learn how to use complex programs. We made our app easy to use so that you can focus on running your business. Here’s what ConX can do for you.
Plan and Monitor Each Job
To figure out job costs and keep your electrical business running smoothly, you need to be able to plan and monitor the work being done. ConX provides a whiteboard function that allows owners, project managers, and supervisors to assign jobs, plan them out, and monitor job costs. Integrated into the app, we have tools for time reporting, time approvals, and invoicing. This helps you to manage employees and borrowed workers quickly and easily.
Loan Out Employees During Slow Times
When business gets slow and you’re overstaffed, it can be difficult to keep your best employees happy. If you’re unable to offer your employees full-time hours during the slow season, use ConX to offer them to other contractors for a small profit. This allows you to retain your best workers as employees while also giving them the opportunity to work as much as they would like to.
Borrow Workers During Busy Times
If you have more work than you’re able to complete at once, labor sharing makes it easy to expand beyond the full-time employees that you already have. Using ConX, you can let others in the labor pool know about the work opportunity. Additional skilled workers can join you for a set amount of time to help you meet the extra demand. When you can get the labor you need, when you need it, you won’t have to turn down a good job. Besides allowing you to take advantage of more job opportunities, this can reduce the need to pay overtime hours or extend your customers’ wait times.
Hire Skilled New Workers
Are you ready to expand your business? Using ConX, not only do you have the ability to borrow skilled workers from other contractors, but you can also find potential new hires. We’re implementing a jobs section that will allow you to search and browse resumes. This will help you find the right fit more quickly and easily, reducing hiring costs.
