Dramatically reduce the repetitious work building an estimate and spend more time thinking about how to submit a more competitive and yet profitable bid. If you have HeavyJob, look up actual productions with one keystroke, select appropriate jobs to decide productions, and copy historical data back into your estimate notes to justify your numbers.
Stay on top of the considerable amount of HeavyJob field data on a daily basis, including costs and productions, issue RFIs and submittals, track change orders and extra work and easily prepare T&M payment requests. If you own HeavyBid, see what the estimator was thinking with one keystroke. If you own HCSS Safety, track all safety data including the relevancy of the safety meetings to the work performed. If you own HCSS plans, communicate with the field via electronic plans on which everyone can make their own annotations.
Foremen typically use iPads or Android tablets, but can use smart phones also. They can enter on traditional looking time cards with people, equipment and cost codes, diary information, quantities, materials, photos, and fillable forms to totally eliminate paper, typically completing everything in minutes each day. They can see their daily productions and/or costs and make production plans for the next day. If you own HeavyBid, they can see what the estimator was thinking in one keystroke. If you own HCSS Safety, they can quickly perform meetings, inspections, near misses, incidents, observations, JHAs and monitor skills and certifications. If you own HCSS plans they can communicate with management via electronic plans where everyone can make their own annotations on a central document.
Plan work with foremen and project managers, including goals for production each day. Monitor productions and costs daily and approve time-cards. If you own HeavyBid, see what the estimator was thinking with one keystroke. If you own HCSS Plans, communicate with foremen and project management via electronic plans on which everyone can make their own annotations.
Monitor data coming in from the field about safety meetings, inspections, incidents, near misses, observations, and JHAs. Study reports of leading indicators to look for potential issues and make adjustments and/or push specific meetings to the field. Keep skills and certifications up-to-date so that foremen have that information available with one keystroke. HCSS Safety comes with over 1,000 predefined meetings and inspections from which you can chose the ones appropriate for your company and add your own. Be able to quickly search through electronic documentation to provide any requested information in minutes rather than weeks. Use your safety program as a marketing tool to owners that are very demanding about safety processes. If you own HCSS Plans, mark any safety concerns on those plans.
Be confident that you are partnering with a trusted software company that has been around for 35 years, has 24/7 Instant Support to help your people at any time, and has a 12-month money-back guarantee on any new software product that you are buying that does not deliver the results that you expected. In addition, we have software that helps you improve efficiency for most of the operations of your company from estimating thru job completion thru equipment maintenance. With HCSS products you can virtually eliminate paper and improve communication and processes throughout your company.
Quickly create material control plans including test frequencies and acceptable tolerances from pre-configured templates and monitor test results as they come in from both internal and 3rd party labs. Track non-conformant test results and institute corrective actions. Collect, organize, and submit test results in a simple manner back to the owner at any time. Use your quality program as a marketing tool.
With electronic documentation of their entire work day, truck drivers save time and improve the accuracy of their paperwork. Drivers can see their cycle times and work with field supervision to clear obstacles that are delaying them. They can also track time worked and be notified of scheduled jobs; track each dump and load performed; track quantities of material picked up; and perform truck inspections and communicate issues for the shop to correct.

Use Equipment360 to automate preventive maintenance schedules and work orders to keep equipment maintained to reduce breakdowns on the jobsite. Make sure you maximize your use of warranty information by having that information instantly available to mechanics as well as equipment maintenance history. Easy-to-use mobile app makes it just as easy for mechanics to lookup information and record their hours and repairs in the field as when they are in the shop. Make data-backed decisions on whether to repair your equipment or sell it. If you own HeavyJob, maintenance requests can come into the shop electronically from the field and if you own HCSS Safety, equipment inspections come automatically in from the field.
Use HCSS Dispatcher to schedule all of your company resources for the next day or even further out including labor, equipment, trucking, material, inventory items, and small tools. You can then see an electronic “magnet board” for any day past, present, or future and move resources around by dragging and dropping them from one job or location to another. Record resource requests and quickly fill them from the resources available. Schedule equipment moves for your drivers and also track rentals and utilization. See all resources on a map view or in a bar chart over time. A report of all scheduled resources for the next day can be sent to anyone who needs to see it.
Study daily costs, quantities, productions, diaries, photos and electronic forms from the field. Issue and monitor RFIs and submittals. Prepare change orders and T&M payment requests. Search through electronic documents to support claims or for any other reason. Track pay request status with the owner. Enter quantities, and if you have HCSS Plans, compute quantities off of the electronic plans with the many included calculation routines.
Equipment360 gives mechanics more time repairing and maintaining equipment and dramatically less time filling out their daily time card or handing in paperwork. Quickly, from the field, mechanics can call up all information about a work order including equipment history, quickly add new information to the work order including parts used, pictures, and invoices for parts purchased, and easily add new work orders. If you own HCSS Telematics, eliminate paper meter collection sheets and automate your preventive maintenance schedule.
Fuelers save time on paperwork by simplifying and digitizing all documentation of their work. Quickly fill out a daily time card including fuel and other fluids dispensed at a job site, record meter readings, perform equipment inspections, and submit equipment maintenance requests–all electronically. Easily see what equipment is supposed to be on the job site so none of it is missed.
Validated HeavyJob time card information comes in automatically from the field freeing up your personnel to do things that are more valuable to your company than trying to figure out and enter time card information. It is actually quicker for the field to enter the data in HeavyJob than by paper or spreadsheets and by checking productions and using multiple levels of approvals, the data coming into the payroll system is highly accurate. Your staff can also access the source HeavyJob data which usually contains more information than what you would normally get on time cards and thus reduce your need to bother people in the field for information.
Operators can simplify and digitize every aspect of documenting their work. They can easily track and review their time, get notified of jobs they are scheduled to work at each day, and quickly perform and submit electronic inspections, maintenance requests, meter readings, and safety issues.
