Change order challenges: Processing time and lost revenue
Being a small business, it is critical for GFE to be able to efficiently document and get paid for out of contract work. Before using Clearstory, processing change orders involved manually pricing/compiling the change order in excel, updating an excel change order log, and e-mailing to GC. Field directed changes, involved handwriting labor, material, equipment using paper/carbon copy tags and transporting back to the office. GFE Project Manager’s are always managing multiple projects at any given time so the administrative time involved in these manual processes often led to delayed processing/payment.
The Clearstory Solution
Using Clearstory, GFE’s field teams effortlessly document extra work on their mobile devices, add photos, and obtain electronic signatures. GFE’s office staff has real-time visibility to T&M tags created in the field eliminating the previous need to transport back to the office as well as eliminating the chance of the T&M tags being unsubmitted and lost revenue. GFE can convert T&M tags into priced change orders, update the COR log, and share with their customer with one click.
"Clearstory is a game changer! I can’t even quantify the benefit of having all of our change orders and T&M Tags just one click away."
