Assignar

Operations management solution for construction contractors

4.8/5 (42 reviews)

Assignar Overview

Assignar is an end-to-end operational solution designed for sub-contractors and fieldworkers within the construction industry, spanning compliance, asset and workflow management. The cloud-based system is paired with a companion mobile app to give back office project coordinators and on-site workers compliant online access whenever and wherever necessary. From here Assignar claims to simplify key processes such as job scheduling, staff / asset assignment, dispatch and the related data collection so vital to industrial compliance. Document management features go beyond just storage to include the ability to create custom online forms, leave requests, inspection sheets, safety reviews etc with the facility for capturing digital signatures.

Timesheets can also be collected and stored via the Fieldworker app for Android and iOS smartphones, ready for approval and export to accounting software such as Xero, QuickBooks and Sage. Supplier management tools aid with coordinating workers, assets, costs and scheduling, while ensuring staff are allocated the right equipment for every job. The paperless data flow then feeds into accurate invoicing from timesheet information, payroll processing and a range of customizable, highly visual reporting options.

Managing our large workforce of over 250 field workers would not be possible without Assignar. It allows us to track and monitor everything, we can ensure we follow all SWMS and Inductions and comply with all safety regulations. We get alerts on all expiring licenses and competency. Also with the Field Worker app it makes it easy for us to get all data necessary from our field workers in real-time from uploading time sheets and site safety forms to getting performing site safety inspection forms and accepting allocations.

Assignar has been essential to the rapid growth of our company.

Pros

Assignar have worked hard to fit with our business, it is constantly evolving & improving to meet our needs & the customer service is wonderful, always a phone call away.
The guys on the field love the App, find it easy to use which means they, in turn, log everything we need to make the business side of things run smoothly & efficiently. Thanks to Assignar we have managed to bring all our guys in house from an external payroll making it easier to track project costs as well as slash our payroll expenses. Best of all it was a surprisingly easy process once we had Assignar set-up & running correctly. We are still yet to use many of the functions Assignar offer but the more we use it the more we realise it can do & the more functions we want to use.

Cons

Some things can be a little cluncky to use but this is being improved constantly & anytime we come across one of these issues & mention to the Customer Services team they work hard to stream line it & improve.

Increased quality. Reduced time to invoice. Better back office productivity.

Pros

Assignar demands better business processes.

With the implementation of Assignar we had the opportunity to review our processes, master data, reporting, structure, etc. and improve quality and productivity while reducing the time to invoice our customers. Quality, productivity and timeline are linked and improvements to one or two of these normally comes at the expense of the remainder. But not so with Assignar.

The real time aspect makes work flow easier to manage.
Employee self service.
Assignar support in reviewing and rectifying issues.

Cons

No push notification to fieldworkers of their expiring licenses and inductions.
We are not able to manage fieldworker availability.

Pros

Assignar is all you need! From the introduction of a new client, throughout the project, to wages and invoicing....everything is in one program. This allows each different department to assess the details they need whether in the office, on-site or working from home.

Cons

When exporting a report you need to format the excel document each time. It would be good to export to a saved template.

Response from Assignar

Hey Kylie,

Thanks for your review. We're always happy to hear we're doing a good job.

Regarding the exporting to Excel, there are several macros to automate Excel to format your data in any way you'd like. However, you might need an Excel specialist to set this up for you.

At the moment, we're in the process to improve the data visualizer, and soon exporting data will be more flexible. We'll let you know once we've released the update.

Cheers!
