Breakdown of core features
Estimating and job costing
ConstructionOnline’s OnCost Estimating has configurable templates, budget analysis, online reporting, bi-directional accounting, and customization tools. Contractors can build estimates with three levels of data – Category, Subcategory, and Item. The platform’s Advanced Estimating enables users to choose how and where they want to apply markup. Users can enter line item markup either as a percentage or a flat rate. ConstructionOnline also lets contractors enter company overhead and margin values to make sure jobs are profitable.
Dashboards and reporting
The software’s business intelligence dashboards empower users to draw useful conclusions from schedules, punch lists, and project estimates. Construction companies can make more informed decisions about future project starts, track profitability, and see resource availability.
ConstructionOnline allows construction professionals to instantly create comprehensive reports, proposals, and contracts. Contractors can turn data into documents, win more jobs with professional proposals, and protect their bottom line with detailed contracts.
ConstructionOnline work logs enable contractors to record who showed up and what was accomplished, including on-site photos, without picking up a pen. Safety logs let users document any incidents or training provided, along with attachments and images to get a reliable record to refer to later.
Construction teams can send messages, attach files, tag contacts, and keep accurate records of communication with ConstructionOnline Envoy Chat. This feature offers the team the centralized tool to ensure everyone is connected and working together to achieve success. Users can see who’s online and start chatting instantly. Mangers send messages to team members individually or as a group and keep the communication clear. Users can archive chats that are no longer active and access them later for reference.
