Problem

A product with end to end capabilities for construction companies missing in the market and generate more profits

Construction companies in United States often goes through a pain of what platform/s to use to efficiently perform their daily operations. Capabilities such as employee management, timecards capture, daily field reporting, project management, job costing, payroll, check printing, Tax filing, robust reporting, integration with accounting platforms are all never a one-stop solution.

Traditionally, construction companies are known to be using more than one system/ tool to manage their enterprise resources. This causes inefficiencies in information processing, human errors, lack of single source of truth, hardship in running payroll with accurate information and more importantly, revenue loss. To make it more complex, each state has its own payroll tax policy and there isn’t a lot of systems out there that integratedly handles both enterprise payroll capabilities while also adhereing to multiple state policies.

The Solution

Develop a one-stop solution for all construction companies

Accubuild and Aezion teamed up to create a multi tenant SaaS based platform that not only resolves all enterprise resource planning pain points, but it also invites new opportunities to save cost in infrastructure and maintenance, thereby offering end users a one-stop solution for all of their payroll needs.

Aezion built a web application where all client admins/ clerks can login and perform pretty much every activity with few button clicks. The platform also has a supportive timeclock app built natively both in IOS and Android to help capture the pictures when workers in field clock in/ out. The app works in offline mode to keep internet access concerns out of question. All the data collectively is stored in central database thus providing a comfort of single source of truth. Robust reporting capabilities and heavy integrations with state and other accounting platforms are in place to offer the end users an end to end solution to their payroll problems right from the comfort of their workplace.
