What are the must-have features that SocrateERP offers for construction?


Construction works management

SocrateERP manages the efficient development of construction works, highlights both quantitatively and in value all the resources used, plans their allocation to projects, phases, sub-phases and activities, monitors consumption and costs and calculates profitability in real time.


Equipment and machinery management

The equipment and machinery are planned and monitored on the works, the consumption being recorded in the equipment file. SocrateERP highlights the hours worked, diesel consumption and kilometers traveled. All costs can be recorded separately for travel, parking or actual work. Also, for each piece of equipment, a record of the compulsory insurances, CASCO rates, road taxes or periodic revisions with notification mechanisms at the approach of the deadline or at their expiration shall be kept.


Project cost control

SocrateERP allows the definition and tracking of planned, budgeted and committed costs, making a real-time comparison with the actual costs resulting from the execution of works, and this comparison can be made at the project, phase, sub-phase or activity level.


Timesheet management

SocrateTimesheet is the mobile solution that helps you track and manage your mobile workforce. Get accurate site information, detailed project, phase and sub-phase information, and reduce labor costs. By processing the hours worked on the project, the costs and profitability are calculated in real time. All data in the SocrateTimesheet mobile app is securely stored in the cloud for immediate and anywhere access. With the mobile app you can manage both the time of the construction workers and the office staff. The recording of the hours worked can be done by project, by phases or by sub-phases, with the highlighting of the performed activities, but also of the type of hours: normal hours, night hours, legal holidays, holidays or delegations. Time sheets can be recorded either directly from the construction site or by importing data centrally at the site. Time sheets can be checked and approved by the site manager and are used as a basis for salary calculation.
