If you are a TimeControl Industrial user then you are no doubt familiar with how the free TimeControl Mobile app adapts to whether it is connected to TimeControl or TimeControl Industrial. For TimeControl Industrial users of the free TimeControl Mobile App, additional features such as Crew timesheet entry appear but TimeControl Mobile App can do much more.
TimeControl Mobile supports not only the data collection of timesheets in the field by using the Crew timesheet. It also allows non-labor entries. This makes the app an ideal field data collection tool. Labor is entered on the Crew timesheet but there is also an icon for Material entries in which any non-labor entries can be made. Just as in TimeControl Industrial on the web interface, you can enter here materials consumption, equipment usage and even production values right from the field.
With the combination of these and other features, the TimeControl Mobile App delivers a LEMS (Labor, Equipment, Materials) collection system. The Mobile app can also collect and attach pictures of the site, receipts for material delivery or other attachments that then become part of the centralized record. Multi-faceted approvals are also handled in the field or back at the office.
This makes the TimeControl Mobile App a powerful field data collection tool and it’s all controlled right in the hand of a supervisor, foreman, team leader or clerk. Collecting the data right where the work is taking place leads to a much higher data quality and speeds all parts of the project progress workflow.
Once the data is released for approval, TimeControl’s powerful approval mechanisms ensure it meets the organization’s standards for data and that the people who need to approve the work get to do so whether that is through the Mobile App or back in the office on a computer web browser. Either way, getting the data ready to update the project management system, the payroll system and the invoicing system happens much, much faster.
The TimeControl Mobile App is free and connects to TimeControl, TimeControl Online, TimeControl Industrial and TimeControl Industrial Online. There is no fee for downloading or using the app. The only requirement is that it be connected to an active TimeControl User License on the main system.
We mean there is no additional cost. None. When you download the app from Google Play or the Apple App store, you don’t pay a thing. All you need to do is connect to your existing TimeControl system. The TimeControl Mobile App supports TimeControl on premise version 7.2 and higher, TimeControl Industrial on premise version 7.2 and higher, TimeControl Online or TimeControl Industrial Online.
