Addressing Labor: A Leading Indicator to Follow Your Money

Projects today are more complex than they have ever been, with higher costs, more parties involved, and tighter schedules. One of the areas that our clients face the greatest challenges and most frustration is with labor. As the amount of active projects has grown over the last few years, the labor market has struggled to keep up. There quite simply is not enough skilled workers to meet the current demand. As a result, there is a battle for manpower and most development teams are left wondering: "who's on my job?"

While data and analytics have exploded across industries, most project teams lack transparent, reliable, and actionable data during the build out. Therefore, it’s difficult to track projects without a strong on-site presence and a lack of data can create confusion, disputes, and project delays. 

That's why we're excited to announce a solution at all levels of project participation to address labor challenges with:

Eyrus work by: 

  • By replacing today’s outdated, manual data entry solutions with an automated data collection system, Eyrus simplifies labor tracking for the on-site team. 
  • By creating a real-time dashboard of project analytics, Eyrus facilitates project intelligence and workforce visibility for off-site parties. 
  • By comparing headcount by trade to a manloading model, Eyrus ensures early detection of delays and early recovery to keep the project on track. 
  • By tracking labor quality issues, key people missing, and deviations from schedule, Eyrus helps minimize disputes and reduce claims.
