The basic version has templates for construction and installation, but Sitecon is also available in five trade-specific versions. There are versions for members of the following trade bodies: EIO (electricians), PLR and MVR (sheet metal and metalworking), TiB (roofing contractors), Golvbranschen (GBR – flooring), and others for plumbers firms.
Sitecon consists of a number of modules (parts). There is nothing to stop you using all the modules, but you may want to just use a few modules depending on your business and your needs.
Logbooks are a good way of documenting the work done on a construction site or in a company. You can also attach relevant images and documents to logbook entries.
This module documents the variations that occur as work progresses. Documents can be linked to the change, and the module also updates estimates for BidCon users in electrical, construction and installation.
This module contains all the documents related to the project, such as estimates, schedules, drawings, e-mails to and from various contacts, images and text files. To make them easier for your colleagues to find, all documents are saved in the folder structure created automatically for the project.
There are also predefined document templates for you to use in the project. It is easy to send the purchasing templates to multiple recipients with just their own details in the page header – they cannot see the other recipients. There is a special document format for internal checks and checklists, including checkmark and signature functions.
Time recording is a great tool for allocating the hours worked, travel time, etc. to particular projects and work orders. The information can then be used as billing and payroll data. This function is also available over the Internet.
This module is used for entering work orders, including details of the work to be done, the date and the location. The work order can then be e-mailed, uploaded to Sitecon Web or accessed online. The module also records the costs involved in the work order, creating billing data that can be sent to the customer. The work orders module is fully compatible with the desktop and web versions of Sitecon.
The register is a single database containing all the information about companies, individuals and projects. The information is then accessed and used by all the other modules in the program. You only need to enter the details once – saving you a lot of effort. A register can also be shared by multiple users
This add-on module is available to users of BidCon Construction & Installation. It contains functions supporting financial tracking. The budget is generated from your BidCon estimates, and you can specify the level at which reconciliation takes place – by account or by building element. It is possible to link the module to a financial system and import transactions.
Sitecon webb – A web solution for work orders and time reporting
Now you can access time management functions and process work orders even if you are out of the office. Sitecon Web offers unprecedented mobility and efficiency. All information is synchronised with Sitecon in the office, providing instant feedback about ongoing and completed work. This makes it easier to keep track of the project, with more effective planning.
You can access Sitecon Web anywhere there is an Internet connection. The web-based solution has a responsive user interface that automatically adjusts to the screen size of the device used. It is up to you whether to use a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
You can record the time you spend on projects and work orders wherever you are. Sitecon Web gives you access to all the projects defined in Sitecon. That means you can instantly enter the time spent as soon as you finish. The times are sent to the supervisor for regular project reconciliation.
You can sign your hours at any time, indicating to administrators that the data is ready for payroll and billing. Sitecon Web means there is no need for separate paper-based time sheets.
Sitecon Web makes it easy to instantly send a work order created in Sitecon to a user on site, with details about what needs to be done and where. You can then use your smartphone, tablet or laptop to add more details like the materials used and hours spent, and return the updated work order to Sitecon. You can also create a work order from scratch in your smartphone, tablet or laptop, then transfer it to Sitecon for inclusion in the relevant project.
Sitecon is also available in five trade-specific versions. They each contain document templates that have been specially designed for the particular trade.
This version of Sitecon also contains document templates from EIOFORM – the electronic form system created for electricians by the organisation EIO. There are forms for many different purposes including quality assurance and contracts/administration.
Sheet metal/ventilation/metalworking (PLR/MVR)
