Clearstory Partners with HCSS to Help Streamline T&M Ticket Solutions

By: Cameron Page  |  August 24, 2023

 

Clear software integrations, clear Change Order processing, and clear cash flow. Clearstory is pleased to bring the construction industry’s only Change Order Communication Tool to the new HCSS Marketplace, providing a streamlined and fully integrated T&M Ticketing solution to heavy civil contractors and subcontractors using HCSS HeavyJob.

Designed to build, enhance, and bring together the tools needed to improve the construction industry, the HCSS Marketplace will offer joint best-of-breed solutions to fit the needs of contractors and make workflows more efficient and profitable for all project partners. Clearstory joins the Marketplace as an inaugural partner, bringing its purpose-built Change Order Communication Tool in full support of this mission.

Clearstory helps General Contractors, Specialty Contractors, and Owners communicate project Change Order Requests and T&M Tickets in an easy-to-use collaborative cloud-based log to keep companies on the same page and reduce risk for all stakeholders. The tool includes features like digital T&M Tags, easy-to-use Change Order templates, Change Notifications, and more to streamline antiquated processes and improve communication (and cash flow) between project partners. 

Contractors choosing Clearstory with HCSS HeavyJob access a number of benefits, including:

SEE IT: The Clearstory integration provides HCSS users with complete visibility and an organized, comprehensive look of all T&M items generated from HeavyJob time cards in one single view. Accurately track which items have been signed and authorized and which are still outstanding. Nothing falls through the cracks. 

BELIEVE IT: Forget unreliable and inconsistent data entry from the field. A Clearstory T&M Ticket is instantly created each time an HCSS time card has items marked “T&M,” automatically and consistently populating the T&M Ticket with the correct title, project name, description, cost code, labor, material, and equipment without manual input errors.

BANK ON IT: By instantly sharing digital T&M tickets between partners and automatically pricing out Change Order Requests and invoices from those tickets, HCSS and Clearstory users can cut processing time from weeks or months to just minutes, dramatically improving cash flow and minimizing risk.  

“Clearstory is honored to be one of the first integrations on the HCSS Marketplace,” says Clearstory founder and CEO Cameron Page. “As the first to build a real-time Change Order Communication Tool for the industry, one that allows stakeholders to align on changes and ensures that everyone shares the same easy to access, up to date information, we can dramatically enhance how HCSS software delivers value to its contractor customers.”  

Clearstory currently works with more than 40% of the ENR Top 25 General Contractors. To date, over $6 billion in Change Orders have been shared between commercial construction companies on the Clearstory network. With its powerful workflows, Clearstory reduces processing time on Change Orders by up to 90%. 

Heavy civil construction contractors interested in forgetting about clumsy data entry, having T&M items made easy, and getting paid on Change Orders faster can find Clearstory on the HCSS Marketplace here.
