HCSS Helps Contractors Do More With Less, Increasing Workforce Productivity and Efficiencies
SUGAR LAND, Texas, April 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HCSS, a leading provider of innovative software that helps heavy civil businesses streamline their operations, announces HCSS solutions can help contractors be more efficient so they don't have to hire as many people. When contractors deploy digital transformation solutions, they become leaders in their space, with greater efficiencies and the ability to hire more easily.
The 2022 Construction Hiring and Business Outlook Survey from AGC of over 1000 firms across the US showed contractors were optimistic about the market for highway and bridge construction, federal construction projects, warehouse construction, and healthcare facilities. Seventy-four percent of respondents reported their firms would expand headcount in 2022.
"Despite significant challenges with labor availability, material costs, and supply chain disruptions, contractors are focusing on improving efficiencies throughout their operations and empowering employees with technology that maximizes productivity so the workforce can do more, with less," said Tom Webb, VP of Strategic Initiatives & Customer Relations, HCSS. "What was leading-edge technology is now middle of the pack. Contractors need to evaluate their technology stack and deploy new digital technologies that create efficiencies and drive value to become leaders in their space. As a leader, it is much easier to hire skilled workers because they want to work for winners."
According to the report, "Contractors are taking steps to cope with these challenges. They are adopting new technologies designed to bring efficiencies into their operations." HCSS software helps businesses meet these labor shortages by automating processes that double or triple the productivity of the current workforce. HCSS helps contractors bid more work with HCSS HeavyBid and double the productivity of project managers and foremen with HCSS HeavyJob.
