B2W Software for Construction Pays Off for Payroll Processing

Two articles highlight how contactors can cut errors, inefficiency and violations

Paying construction employees properly isn’t easy but doesn’t have to be as hard as some contractors make it. Two recent trade media articles explain the advantages of electronic field logs over processes built around paper timecards, spreadsheets and manual data transfer. An article in Building Profits magazine focuses on using technology to eliminate payroll errors and inefficiencies. “When you’re using paper, there are a lot of data issues that arise,” says Eric Sellman, a vice president and general manager at M.A. Mortenson. “Handwriting can be an issue.
