About CrewTracks

CrewTracks is a cloud-based crew tracking and field reporting app with features including GPS tracking, crew texting, resource scheduling, work approvals, injury tracking, a photo time clock, and more. The software is designed for construction managers in companies who manage equipment and crews across multiple job sites, and need to track equipment hours, materials usage, and job costing.

CrewTracks includes a photo time clock, which allows foremen and crew leads to clock their crews in and out on site, and lets users view photos in real-time to confirm which employees are on site. Crew locations can be tracked in real-time, and users can also see where crews have been throughout their work hours. Jobs and phases, equipment, materials, crews, and other resources can be scheduled, and CrewTracks displays whether a resource has already been scheduled for a different crew or job. Job information is sent out automatically to crews by SMS, with details including addresses, start times, and crew leads.

CrewTracks allows users to track equipment hours and material usage for different jobs or phases, and all time worked can be costed to the appropriate job. Crews can add photos and notes to jobs, and project managers or superintendents can approve or reject daily work and add their own notes and photos. Daily reports on jobsites, crews, weekly time and overtime, job time cards, and productivity are generated, and users can export job costing data, payroll data, equipment hours, and more to their accounting system.

    Customer service for me has been outstanding. The guys are always helpful, always return calls and if they don't know they will figure it out.

    Pros

    Takes way less time to complete on the user side, can add pictures and notes for clients. Can incorporate all of the aspects of our business on it. Of course it's only as good as the quality we receive in the office. We can export a ton of reports that has helped with a lot of items. The ability to custom add in items is great as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes we have connection issues but that results from our location. Would love to be able to kick schedules back to employees and make them revise with a pop up or a notification to them. Have the employees be able to review their time on the app. Also a simple clock in and clock out user and maybe a way to link schedules if I have three for one job. With documents it would be great to have the ability to send off for approval or something so when it sucks we can kick it back to the crews for them to redo. Soon enough they would do it right the first time.

    Response from CrewTracks

    Ali, you are the coolest. I love that you titled your review "The Ultimate Review." Please consider this The Ultimate Review Response. :)

    I believe Stealth Energy Group is the company that comes closest to using all of our features. The only feature you're not using is our production tracking, which is a shame because it's awesome. So your feedback is particularly meaningful because you use so much of our app.

    That said, some of the suggestions you mentioned under "cons" are already covered with functionality you might not be aware of. We'll be in touch to make sure you're not missing out. For example, you can kick schedules back to employees for them to revise. That doesn't currently trigger a push notification, but it does show up red, and then displays a pop-up message with the rejection reason.

    Shoot, this response has a length limit!
    I've added some great ideas to our requested features list thanks to this review. Thank you so much for working with us!

    Crewtracks helped us make the switch from paper timecards to digital. We originally purchased the software to track employee time, however we've started using Crewtracks for so much more. Our foremen have become accustomed to uploading pictures and notes in the app, which allows management to track project costs/production without stepping foot on a job site.

    Pros

    As a small industrial painting contractor, we FINALLY have a way to track our field employees from our corporate office. Crewtracks allows us to monitor employee hours and performance from afar. We love the ease of use and "simplicity" of the app/desktop versions.

    Cons

    I wish the sign in/out process was customizable, especially since our crews are working throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. For example... I'd like to be able to track employees' temperatures when they login.

    Response from CrewTracks

    Erin, thank you so much for this review. I love that you referred to the "stripped down" version of CrewTracks. All of our features are optional, and you opted out of several features you didn't need, which in turn allowed us to offer you a pricing discount. Total win-win.

    We do have companies tracking Covid-19 data via CrewTracks - check out our blog post on the topic, which includes some examples: https://www.crewtracks.com/blog/coronavirus-covid-19/

    Thank you for highlighting the simplicity of our software! We work really hard to keep things simple for our client office staff, and even simpler for the field crews.

    We love working with you guys! Please give us a call any time we can help with anything.

    I cannot say enough good things about this software. The Customization and the employee tracking are the best I've come across! The time savings we have encountered has been wonderful! We will be using Crew Tracks for a very long time to come!

    Pros

    Best Aspects of CrewTracks:
    The ability to customize some spreadsheets and areas within the software to work for our company.

    Employee tracking has greatly improved. We have saved so much time just in verifying and approving timecards. It is also saving time processing payroll, as well. We are looking forward to integrating with our new accounting software, Foundation in the next couple of months.

    Cons

    The scheduling portion of the app is in need of serious help, however, it is my understanding that they are working on this currently to make it much more user friendly.

    Response from CrewTracks

    Thank you so much for this review, especially for the constructive feedback about scheduling. We have ambitious plans for that feature. It will take some time, but you're going to love it.

    You also hit on some points that we're very proud of, and we're thrilled to hear CrewTracks is alleviating pain points and providing value for you guys. Thank you for highlighting the customizability. Sometimes it's hard to quickly communicate that aspect of our product because we have to get to know your company in order to demonstrate exactly how we can adapt to your needs.

    Your account manager, Casey, has been notified of your review and nominated for a company award for his stellar work with your company. We are so proud to be part of Ohio Insulation & Manufacturing Co!

    I highly recommend this software to all companies no matter what it is you do. It is so easy to schedule and track your day to day jobs and makes billing super easy. It makes my day go quicker because I don't have to be on a guessing game and don't have to keep going back and forth with the Supervisor or the employees as to what was done and how the property looked when they left.

    Pros

    Being able to enter information quickly and with only a few steps makes it easy for even the crew to pick up. The appearance and color scheme is appealing. There are a lot of features and you are given the option of selecting which features you would like to use just by a quick click. The gps and live events options make it easy to see where the crew is and what it is they are working on. By having the photo and notes capability it makes it easy for the crew to snap pics of before and after the service has been completed. Further, they can make note of concerns on the property without having to write everything up on a separate sheet of paper. The real time processing makes it easy to bill at the end of the service so there is no payment delays. The app is consistently updated with newer and better options so if you come across something that you would like to see in the software, chances are they are already working on it.

    Cons

    I currently haven't experienced any cons and have been using the program for over 9 months. If I do come across something that doesn't work with what I want to do, I just reach out to my rep and he lets me know how to work around it. He actually provides me with the information I need to make my request work where I wouldn't have thought I could make it work.

    Response from Brett

    Carrie,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We love working with you, and you've described exactly the experience we strive to provide for our customers. The last few sentences of your review are particularly gratifying. No software can perfectly meet every need of every company, so we are resourceful and creative in filling in those little gaps. Your feedback has been so valuable in highlighting areas that we can focus in development. We are constantly innovating by combining our vision with customer feedback, and your grateful attitude along with interesting problems to solve have been a ray of sunshine on work we already love. Thank you for being such a joy to work with.

    Payroll costs are recouped. Digital documentation of job performance and machine tracking.

    Pros

    We incorporate this in our daily report. Not only do we track each employees time, we also manage equipment time/materials used and documentation of what has taken place on the job site.

    Cons

    One issue I've had is an error message that pops up stating it couldn't connect to server. I simply click close and it still works. I've brought this to the attention to the folks at CrewTracks and they are currently working on it.

    Response from CrewTracks

    Thanks so much for the review, Nathan! We spend a lot of time showing folks how CrewTracks will actually save money. Your endorsement means a lot.

    I'll be in touch about the "can't connect to server" issue - curious if you're still seeing it.

    Thanks again!

    Update: Just wanted to let any readers know that we solved the "can't connect to server" issue and introduced a feature that replaces the message. Instead of an error message, any time your device loses data connection, an indicator in the app changes from green to orange, or red if something is really wrong. You can tap on the indicator to get details, but CrewTracks will not display an error message.

    As always, all your updates will be stored on the device, and then data will sync with the office once the data connection is restored.
