Are you looking for a way to optimize your workforce management? Look no further than CMiC CrewTime! CMiC CrewTime is designed to help construction firms manage their workforce more efficiently and effectively.

In this article, we’ll explain what CrewTime is, outline best practices for initial setup, and explore situations where implementing CrewTime could be beneficial for your company.

CrewTime is a powerful tool that streamlines the collection, management, and distribution of timecard data. With CrewTime, your team can easily track time and attendance, access real-time labor data, and streamline payroll processes.

So, when is it a good idea to implement CrewTime? If you’re struggling with manual, time-consuming timecard processes, dealing with a high volume of payroll errors, or experiencing difficulties managing compliance, then it’s time to consider CrewTime.

When setting up CrewTime in CMiC, there are several best practices that can help ensure a successful implementation. Here are a few key considerations:

  1. Understand your workforce: Before implementing CrewTime, take time to understand your workforce and their needs. What types of workers do you have (e.g. hourly, salaried, unionized)? What are their typical work schedules? Are there any unique requirements or rules that need to be accommodated? Answering these questions will help you tailor the configuration of CrewTime to best meet the needs of your organization.
  2. Define your work breakdown structure: A work breakdown structure (WBS) is a hierarchical representation of the work that needs to be done on a project. Defining your WBS is an important step in setting up CrewTime, as it allows you to accurately track time against specific tasks or activities. Make sure your WBS is well-defined and aligned with your organization’s project management practices.
  3. Configure your labor codes: Labor codes are used to track the work performed by employees. Make sure to define all of the labor codes that will be used in CrewTime, and ensure that they are accurately mapped to your WBS.
  4. Set up your pay rules: Pay rules are used to calculate pay rates based on the work performed by employees. Make sure to configure your pay rules accurately and thoroughly test them before putting them into production.
  5. Train your workforce: Once CrewTime has been configured, it is important to provide training to your workforce to ensure they understand how to use the system. Provide clear instructions on how to enter time, how to select the appropriate labor codes, and how to submit timesheets for approval.

By following these best practices, you can help ensure that your implementation of CrewTime is successful and provides maximum value to your organization.
