Tools to Increase Visibility and Control of Equipment

Wynne’s Job Site Portal takes the complexity out of managing equipment at one or more job sites. The portal gives equipment managers, job site foreman, and procurement personnel real-time visibility of their equipment. They can track owned and rented equipment at each job site and in the yard, manage transfers between sites, and allocate costs back to the specific project or job all over one integrated paperless system.

The Job Site Portal addresses common construction complaints:

  • Job sites are doing things without telling the back office
  • The job site rents equipment from external vendors without telling anyone in accounts payable
  • A piece of equipment was sitting unused in the corner of the site for weeks before anyone noticed
  • The job site requested equipment from the yard and has no idea when it’s going to turn up
  • Sites get hit with costs they weren’t expecting

The job site portal provides a simple e-commerce interface to Wynne’s construction software. Job site personnel simply log into the job site portal and select what equipment they need by clicking on a picture of the item. Standard equipment rates can be displayed up front in the portal to reduce surprises and if it has to be rented in from outside then preferred vendor rates can be shown. Once an item is chosen, they select the quantity needed, when they need it, and where. Each request is accompanied by a job or project costing information including task or project sub-codes for cost allocation.

Personnel can also go into the system and see exactly what they have assigned to each project. They can view outstanding requisitions and pending orders, what is on rent as well as what was off rented in the period. This lets them check that they are not being charged for something that they shouldn’t be and alerts them if they still have something on site that needs to be picked up. They can also manage their project budgets and see all their costs per period in one consolidated location.

As many of the processes around equipment mobilization happen out in the yard or in the field, we have a full suite of mobile apps designed to allow you to manage each step of the process on your mobile devices. So your yard personnel can pick equipment and load trucks without ever having to come back to the office for instructions, and your job site can sign for and receive deliveries and dispatch pickups in real-time to reduce arguments over charges with both your equipment facilities and your external vendors.
