|Put Technology to Work!|
How can technology help you address this? We suggest 3 significant ways:
- Add Quality Inspection Checklists: Select key, critical tasks (for example slab pour, frame complete, etc.) and associate a checklist to ensure quality meets your objectives. You now have a consistent, measurable quality standard that keeps the schedule open until it is completed — including vendor payment. You catch issues early and can even add photos or drawings to the record.
- Utilize Automated Punch Tools: When rework is needed, either as a result of the Checklists or walk-thru, use your scheduling software to associate the punch item with a task and auto-email the vendor. Take advantage of auto-reminders until the process is complete. No more phone calls, unanswered emails or slipping through the cracks! Your vendors will appreciate this, as well.
- Leverage Available Reporting: Automated scheduling reports provide you with not only the details of what happened but reasons for delays, vendor performance analysis tools and consistent problem identification. You'll know where to focus the most energy.
