Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to some key questions you may have regarding HeavyJob or HCSS.

Designed specifically for the heavy civil construction industry, HeavyJob is widely known as a digital time card tool that allows your foremen to enter their crews’ time using a laptop or mobile device in the field, and send those time cards directly to the office, eliminating unnecessary paperwork and double entry.

But HeavyJob also helps your project managers analyze daily job costs and production quantities in real time and compare them against the budget and schedule to know whether a job is making or losing money and make adjustments as needed, instead of waiting until the end of the job to find out if it was profitable. They can export time card data directly to your payroll and accounting systems to eliminate double entry and errors and use actual production and cost data to improve future estimating and help you plan production ahead of time.

Your company can host HeavyJob Manager licenses and all HeavyJob data on your own server or cloud, allowing for multiple users to be in the manager system and have access to the same data at the same time (or separately).

If you’d prefer to let someone else handle the IT side, the HCSS Cloud can host your HeavyJob Manager licenses and all your HeavyJob data on our own highly secure servers.

Our enterprise version of HeavyJob allows large companies with multiple divisions doing different types of work to share software licenses while maintaining completely different data sets.

HCSS has created direct interfaces between HeavyJob and most accounting systems used by construction companies. A standard interface contains Job, Date, Foreman, Phase, Cost Code, Hours, Union, Pay Class, Earn Code, Department, Shift, and Worker’s Comp, with exceptions for salaried statues or certified payroll where appropriate.

If your company has built its own in-house accounting system, or if you use a software system that we have not yet built an interface with, HCSS is happy to build a custom integration for an additional charge.

In most cases, HCSS recommends our traditional onsite implementation. This process includes two days of workflow design and training at our campus in Sugar Land, Texas, followed by two days at your company. We’ll discuss your time card and production reporting procedures and goals, review current processes, build improved workflows, help you plan your rollout, and train your users.

For those who cannot come to the HCSS campus, there is also an online implementation option. This shortened version of our full, onsite implementation includes the same process review and design and will involve regular check-ins via phone call and webcam.

Probably. HeavyJob exports time cards and production data to more than 45 accounting systems without any customized work and for no additional cost. The most common interfaces are with ViewPoint, Dexter & Chaney, Sage Timberline, Quickbooks, and Foundation. JD Edwards usually requires some custom work. If an integration has not been designed to fit your accounting system, we can build a custom interface tailored specifically to your organization’s processes.

You can also export HeavyJob data into Excel and then import it directly into your scheduling program like Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project. Some information from MS Project and P6 does import into HeavyJob, depending on how your system is set up.

HeavyJob also integrates with nearly all other HCSS products to help you manage all of your projects from bid to completion, including HeavyBid, HCSS Dispatcher, Equipment360, HCSS Safety, and  HCSS Telematics.

HeavyJob is designed for use throughout your organization, with both PC/laptop and mobile applications for iOS and Android operationg systems.

In the office, your project managers, estimators, and payroll or accounting professionals can use HeavyJob Manager to approve time cards and eliminate double entry into accounting. HeavyJob Manager Mobile, available as an iPad app or via web browser, allows project managers to approve time cards and view diaries, photos, and cost information wherever you are.

HeavyJob Field is typically used by foremen, superintendents, and crew leaders to enter time card and daily diary information from the job site. For individual employees who do not report to a crew lead, HeavyJob One is available to submit time and production quantities directly to the office via mobile app without having to report to a foreman.

HCSS bases the suggested number of HeavyJob Manager licenses on the number of project managers, superintendents, executives, estimators, and accounting personnel that will be accessing HeavyJob at one time.

HeavyJob Manager for the PC and laptop features shared licenses that can be used concurrently, so multiple users can be in the Manager system at one time. A typical purchase includes one Manager license for every two users, so that enough people can access the system at one time without being locked out. HeavyJob Field licenses for both laptop and mobile, as well as Manager Mobile and HeavyJob One licenses, are individually named per user. These licenses belong to the individual user and can travel from device to device by logging into the app.

Since field licenses cannot be shared, you should purchase one license for each user accessing the Field (or Manager Mobile or HeavyJob One) system.
