​The High Costs of Manual Field Collection

Posted by Stephanie Patterson, Rhumbix Insider on 3/29/17 2:57 PM

Labor is the largest and least understood cost on construction projects, typically making up at least 50% of the budget. The industry thinks about labor as a fixed cost, one that you don't have much control over. But if you look more closely at what makes up your labor budget, you'll find many soft costs which CAN be optimized (by going paperless and using digital timecards, for example), allowing for more production time—which means higher profits.

Posted by Steve Chiou, Director of Product on 12/5/16 10:05 AM

These days when most people think of start-ups, the HBO show Silicon Valley comes to mind. Like all satirical comedies, a lot of what they say has some truth to it (this one a bit more than others). There’s always someone on a whiteboard reviewing the latest feature release, having a debate about the best medium roast organic drip coffee, or grabbing a snack from the kitchen.
