The competition in the construction and trade businesss is hard, and how often has it been that costs are a decisive factor in national and international orders? Trade and repair businesses are therefore constrained when trying to optimize all disciplinary processes and lower costs. Codex mbH from Germany has however developed an innovative time recording solution, "Win Time" with which workers' data and traveling times can be concretely captured and presented. Using Win Time saves the trade and repair businesses time and expenses; the builders obtain detailed bills and trade workers can devote more energy to their main tasks.
Imprecise time recording with time sheets
In practice, the workings are commonly generated before the end of the workday or shortly before the beginning of the weekend. So confirms the danger the daily activities and the workers themselves might be recorded wrong or not recorded at all. Such occurrences may result in time sheets filled with mistakes, wrong billings, more office expenses and other billing costs.
The mobile solution: time recordings with Win Zeit
The mobile data capturing solution Win Zeit solves these problems as the data are directly captured from the work site with the barcode scanner and RFID reader SCANNDY. Direct data capture and transfers ultimately saves the trade and repair businesses time and costs. This time-recording system guarantees optimal control over all the work that occurs; with the data quality enhanced and processes made more efficient, how the work gets done can be planned much more precisely.
Mobile time-recording with SCANNDY!
As usual, the work order of the day will be printed. Along with the work order, a barcode that is for that day's work bill in relation to the project number will be printed (such as the list of worker's). At the work site, just with the pressing of a single button to read the barcode, the mobile barcode scanner SCANNDY will know at which work site it will be handling. Then quite simply, those workers who are at the work site will be selected and captured by the SCANNDY through the list of the workers' barcodes. The SCANNDY will then match the workers at the work site. As an alternative to a list of workers, a barcode card can be printed for every worker. Work logging can thus be completely comfortable with just the press of a button or per the Start/Stop function. Optionally, the hours can also be matched with the daily tasks and set against the supervisors and workers.
Time-recording and data transfers locally or world-wide
Following the time-recording, the data would ultimately be transferred to the office. This occurs over a USB connection or through the cradle/docking station of the SCANNDY when the workers return to the headquarters. Should the devices be left in the vehicles, the information from the SCANNDY will be sent through WLAN as soon as it receives a signal from the premises. Alternatively the data can also be sent per GPRS, which is the fastest way if the worker is to continue working at the same construction site for more days. This method guarantees that the office workers and the supervisors always obtain the actual data information on the worker, the daily tasks and the work site. A soon as the hours have been transferred, the information can be used for checking post calculations.
PANMOBIL SCANNDYs - The time-recording tool
The mobile barcode scanner SCANNDY from PANMOBIL is so simple to use, that even those users who have never worked with computers or cell phones can definitely immediately use the SCANNDY even without long explanations. The SCANNDY is completely ready to be implemented for use on construction with its soft rubber plastic body. Protected against water spray, equipped with a stable OLED display,, attachable with a belt clip and with its light weight, the SCANNDY is the optimal scanner for tough jobs on-the-road.
The complete solution "Win Zeit" from Codex Association for Software Development mbH simplifies the working process for all different trades, enhances data quality, and dissolves the problems of the error-prone recordings on the time-sheets.
