-- United Solutions has rolled out another software tool that commercial construction companies are using to master how they schedule, dispatch and track crews and equipment. The product, ControlBoard®
, was created by Congistics to give construction leaders an effective and easy way to manage their core business assets: people and equipment.
solves many of the industry’s biggest productivity challenges, such as waiting for equipment and crews, overspending on capital equipment rentals, and struggling to match the right crew and resources with the right job,” said Greg Kirshe, President of United Solutions, Inc., the technology partner to New England’s construction and real estate industries. “We are pleased to partner with Congistics in delivering this solution for our commercial construction clients. There is no better tool to maximize productivity and profitability.”
Functioning like an electronic whiteboard ControlBoard®
is designed to run the day-to-day operations of all jobs from one centralized location that can be viewed instantly by all users. This software simplifies the entire project process – planning, scheduling, dispatching and managing resources. Users can create schedules without the need to use a whiteboard or spreadsheet, and share those schedules across the entire enterprise. Resources can be allocated to jobs, equipment moves can be scheduled, and tasks can be dispatched to the proper parties in one integrated system. Every change is tracked and stored in a database, allowing users to stay current on resource conflicts, schedule changes and utilization.
is proving to be an important advance over Excel for Sonny Moore, scheduler at 3-C Electrical Company Inc., in Ashland, MA. “ControlBoard®
lets me allocate and track employees and equipment across all of our jobs,” Moore said. “With Excel, things can get lost, but ControlBoard®
keeps me on top of every detail. One feature I really like is being able to track the locations of all test equipment that we have in the field. As we get bigger, this is a great tool to help us be efficient and productive across every job.”
