Extracker, a cloud-based collaboration platform that helps general contractors and subcontractors create, track, and share change orders and time and material tags, offers added safety and financial security during the COVID-19 crisis by ensuring real-time visibility into project costs for all parties and providing tools for working remotely and touch-free.
In addition to financial protection, Extracker provides many of the country’s subcontractors and general contractors a key tool to track T&M work while complying with COVID-19-related jobsite distancing requirements. Instead of filling out paper T&M tags for physical authorization, subcontractors can use the Extracker mobile app to professionally document their work and request a digital signature by email. The touch-free process automatically generates a cloud-based log for both companies.
Many construction companies in the United States trust Extracker. Turner, a global provider of construction services with 10,000 employees, recently leveraged Extracker to convert the Sacramento King’s former NBA Arena into a field hospital to treat up to 360 COVID-19 patients.
Instead of bidding the project, Turner agreed to perform the work on T&M. All of their trade partners were trained on Extracker in less than 24 hours and used the touch-free workflow to get T&M Tags signed and automatically price out a change order request at the end of each day. With Extracker, Turner was able to see the project costs in real time and keep their teams healthy.
“The goal for our customers right now is to get their teams back to work, and to do that in a healthy way,” says Cameron Page, founder and CEO of Extracker. “Our tools allow them to do their jobs touch-free in a challenging environment and also help them protect their profit margins in this new economy. These are difficult circumstances, but it’s also an opportunity for companies to evaluate their processes and workflows to incorporate new ideas and technology that will continue to give them competitive leverage after the current crisis has passed.” For more, visit www.extracker.com.
