«First season using Schedule»

Usability

Features

Overall rating

Benefits:

Integration into Track is the most beneficial, so foreman can see their schedule in real time and have the capability of creating their field log from the Schedule.

Drawbacks:

The first issue- by only having a 2 week view of the current schedule is the biggest limitation of this platform. We plan jobs 2-8 weeks out, or more at times, and using Schedule for navigating into the future weeks/months is basically impossible without having 2 large monitor screens and constantly fast forwarding in 2 week increments. Its extremely inefficient. The second issue- it's inability of moving multiple jobs at a time. If today was a rain day, we need to manually move forward one job at a time. Since we plan jobs out so far in advance, this is extremely time consuming and inefficient.

In sum:

Unfortunately I cannot give this platform rave reviews, like I have with other B2W platforms. Due to the cons I noted, I don't think we will be using Schedule for next season. We've created so many other workarounds just to get B2W Schedule to work for us; the cons definitely outweigh the pros. Which is unfortunate, since I had high hopes for using the complete B2W suite of products. Unless the cons I noted are resolved, this will be the one and only season to use Schedule.

Benefits:

The ability to associate Crews with Production Targets. The ability to create custom views within the system. The system is "live" at all times so that all changes are immediately displayed. The ability to track materials at locations/jobs.

Drawbacks:

The speed of the system is an issue when adding to the schedule as each action requires the system to refresh. The inability to "move" multiple crew assignments or production targets simultaneously. Should be able to "select" multiple and move all at once. Need to add the ability to use Schedule for aggregate, asphalt and concrete manufacturing facilities including mix designs and inventories.

In sum:

The system has reduced the number of emergencies that result from poor planning.

«A great transition from paper schedules to B2W Schedule.»

Usability

Features

Overall rating

Benefits:

The crew based scheduling is likely the most useful part of the program. We are easily able to build and change crews on the fly, on a daily basis. Exporting scheduling assignments directly to B2W Tracks is also handy as it makes the Foreman's job to fill out their paperless timesheet very easy.

Drawbacks:

The only two downsides to this program are that there isnt an easy way to distinguish between day and nights (different colours on the schedule would be key), and the reports are not very customizable. We run both day and night shifts daily, and they often roll the next days dayshift on the same report as tonight's night shift.

In sum:

Overall the transition was a great experience. We are much more efficient with our planning and forecasting, and enjoy the integration with B2W Estimate and Tracks.

Overall rating

Benefits:

B2W has brought us into the 21st century. As we were using multiple forms of data capture in the field. It has allows us to be more transparent as an Equipment division. It has also allowed us to capture and track costs in a more efficient detailed manner.

Drawbacks:

We went through our implementation in the midst of a global pandemic. Which proved to be trying on our end. Although this allowed us to be more engaged as managers in the ownership of the product. The pandemic has caused us to slow the roll out of the product.

In sum:

The one item that always hold true for me. B2W does not fix your problems, it is a tool to do so. The implementation and working with our division has brought a lot of broken work flows to the surface.

Benefits:

It's great to be able to track employees, equipment, build out crews and assign work assignments and equipment moves.

Drawbacks:

It's a bit of work on the setup and must make sure things get moved in the system so it is accurate with where you're equipment may physically be. Also setup of our jobsites is difficult since our jobsite moves daily in road construction versus vertical building where the jobsite address is always the same.

In sum:

It has helped up integrate our schedule to our crews and get away from excel and email then phone calls to everyone for work the next day.
