Operations management solution for construction contractors.

About Assignar

Assignar is an end-to-end operational solution for the construction industry, designed for subcontractors and self-performing general contractors, spanning from scheduling and asset and workflow management to compliance and reporting. The cloud-based system is paired with a companion Field Worker App to send critical project data to the office and keep on-site workers and machinery safe and compliant. No more relying on spreadsheets, whiteboards, and clipboards because Assignar’s document management features go beyond just storage with the ability to create custom online forms, leave requests, inspection sheets, safety reviews, and more with the ability to capture digital signatures.

Timesheets can be collected on-site, stored via the app, sent directly to the office, and exported to accounting software such as Xero, QuickBooks, and Sage. The paperless data flow feeds into accurate invoicing from timesheet information, payroll processing, and various customizable, highly visual reporting options.


Key benefits of Assignar

  • Assignar provides comprehensive management software for construction contractors and fieldworkers alike, centralizing key project workflow features via cloud-based browser and mobile app support.


  • Collect and store timesheets for approval and export to other accounting software, while using the imported data to accurately build invoices and process payroll.


  • Issue job notifications and reminders and communicate with the field in real time without relying on constant phone calls thanks to bulk email and SMS sending capabilities.


  • Run custom reports and use the built-in Data Visualizer to generate tree maps, bar charts, heatmaps and more to receive deeper insights into your operations.


  • The companion Fieldworker app offers native access from Android and iOS smartphones, keeping remote construction staff connected with optimized on-the-fly features, like tracking time and filling out forms.

    Compliance Management in one basket

    Amalgamating personnel, plant and equipment records into one manageable system. Allows the Workshop Team to schedule their weeks out more effectively as they have better insight into plant and equipment servicing and compliance requirements. Job creation is faster too, allowing jobs to be scheduled more efficiently.

    Pros

    The compliance management is the key feature that has been the most beneficial for the client I set Assignar up with. It makes managing plant and personnel compliance very easy. It allows all associated plant documents (along with scans and images) and service to be easily accessed in the field by our workers if their client requests to see more information. The same goes for worker's qualifications and licences. It keep them all in the one place, easily accessed from an app. The digital forms have also been adopted quickly and saves time on site, not dealing with paper records. Underground asset management and safety is key in this client's industry, so allowing Dial Before you Dig drawings to be uploaded directly to a job saves alot of time printing out the plans, or even if you weren't printing them you'd still need to take a long time going through all the emails each Utility Company sends through. So it also acts well as a document repository for project specific documents. This saves fieldworkers needing to access the other cloud platforms (e.g. Sharepoint) - it's all accessible in Assignar.

    Cons

    There is a decent learning curve when learning how to set up the program. The support and training was delivered very well though. I do think though that a business would still need someone 'driving' this platform on a regular basis. It's not a set and forget system for a small operator. Like most online systems, it only works as well as the data that is put into in and who is looking after and monitoring that data.

    Do not trust Assignar

    Everything seemed great and seamless until Assignar did not meet our original request, integrating with our accounting software. They led us to believe they could seamlessly integrate, but as we got further into our experience with them their promises fell short. Assignar never successfully integrated with our accounting software (our #1 request) and then blamed their unmet promises on us. Terrible customer support and lack of ownership for their wrong doings and oversight. I do not recommend this company. They refuse to give us any refund even though they did not give us a product we could successfully use or implement into our company processes.

    Pros

    Unfortunately, with how they handled our business, there is nothing we like most.

    Cons

    Please see my overall experience below.

    We have solved a lot of our timesheet issues, we continually adapting to the scheduler and now we are beginning to adapt the program to our safety needs. Win Win!

    Pros

    I like software because it has many functions that help our time management, payroll, and safety needs. The software does so much more then first expected. There is a lot of deep level stuff that we are continually rolling out throughout the time have been using it. We've been able to adapt more and more to help save time, energy and money for our company. Their customer assistance is really like no other I've seen. All of them are great and have a lot of knowledge of Assignar capabilities. But I'd like to give a shout out to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]! She has been of great assistance in our transition and continues to give great support. She's quick to respond has great knowledge and is kind, courteous and will to help with all our needs! Shes the reason we stuck with the program till we had fuller knowledge in allowing the software to shine.

    Cons

    Its not a really negative, but it just takes time to unpack everything. There is so much and it takes time to figure it out.
