SkillSmart Launches Comprehensive Construction Platform for Workforce and Business Compliance
InSight®, SkillSmart’s second major technology offering, allows projects of any size to dynamically capture and report on all workforce and business data in a single product – reducing costs, increasing reliability and improving outcomes.
SkillSmart, a growing software-as-a-service (SaaS) construction tech company, has introduced InSight®, an innovative platform that employs a dynamic, scalable, cloud-based solution for capturing both workforce and business data for construction and government projects. This is the first product on the market that allows general contractors and developers to capture workforce and business data on the same platform – reducing the cost of multiple platforms, removing time consuming duplication of data entry and increasing the reliability of the data.
The ability to capture all workforce and business data is critical to the compliance process. To date projects have had to rely on acquiring multiple software products and increasing labor costs to keep up – often creating unreliable data sets that impact project outcomes and reporting requirements resulting in fines and project delays.
Insight provides a scalable solution with a single, intuitive user interface and dashboards to track subcontractors and projects, regardless of size or scale. Further, InSight is customizable to adapt to different requirements in a market. In particular, new reports can be generated quickly to meet the reporting requirements of any project in days instead of weeks and months.
“We know that Owners, Developers and General Contractors want to demonstrate the positive economic impact their projects have on the communities in which they are working,” said Mike Knapp, CEO and co-founder of SkillSmart, “but current software products don’t allow for that to happen in real time and in a reliable manner. It is imperative to obtain data directly, quickly and accurately to use that data to better manage critical outcomes of the project.”
InSight is already being used on more than 20 projects nationally and by 7 of the top 20 ENR Top 400 Construction firms, including three of the largest economic development projects in the U.S.
