Time Tracking and its Effect on Home Improvement Workers


In the last couple of years, the construction industry around the globe has experienced new economic challenges, related to the crisis in most national economies and the collapse of significant property bubbles, including USA, Ireland, Spain, Eastern Europe, China and many others.

Home improvement business, on the other hand, has managed to remain relatively stable. Instead of buying new properties, the majority of American homeowners prefer to refresh what’s already there.

But how has home remodeling managed to remain in high demand?

First of all, home refreshments and little improvements here and there can deliver a brand new look for a house, by being cost efficient at the same time. In addition, home improvement business owners have utilized several management techniques, allowing their business to remain flexible and attractive in the current economic stagnation.

One of these methods is the use of automated time tracking solutions.

According to Construction Excellence (2010), the use of digital time tracking solutions to monitor employee time and attendance can deliver up to 35% saving on time and over 65% increase on productivity.
