Assignar overview

What is Assignar?

Assignar is an end-to-end operational solution designed for sub-contractors and fieldworkers within the construction industry, spanning compliance, asset and workflow management. The cloud-based system is paired with a companion mobile app to give back office project coordinators and on-site workers compliant online access whenever and wherever necessary. From here Assignar claims to simplify key processes such as job scheduling, staff / asset assignment, dispatch and the related data collection so vital to industrial compliance. Document management features go beyond just storage to include the ability to create custom online forms, leave requests, inspection sheets, safety reviews etc with the facility for capturing digital signatures.

Timesheets can also be collected and stored via the Fieldworker app for Android and iOS smartphones, ready for approval and export to accounting software such as Xero, QuickBooks and Sage. Supplier management tools aid with coordinating workers, assets, costs and scheduling, while ensuring staff are allocated the right equipment for every job. The paperless data flow then feeds into accurate invoicing from timesheet information, payroll processing and a range of customizable, highly visual reporting options.

Compliance Management in one basket

Used weekly for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2021-05-07
Review Source: Capterra

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.

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.

Assignar has been such a time saving software for our company!

Having Assignar has saved so much time (and money) as everything is live and updated immediately into the fieldworker app.

Pros
The best part about having Assignar is being able to work from anywhere! Especially in the current times of Covid-19 it has been a life saver for us being able to work from home. I love using the scheduler feature and the Assignar help was awesome with giving some training to get used to using it.

Cons
We found the move from our old software fairly smooth. It did take a while for our operators to get used to working from an app on their phone but with the help, support and training from Assignar it was made much easier.

Managing our large workforce of over 250 field workers would not be possible without Assignar. It allows us to track and monitor everything, we can ensure we follow all SWMS and Inductions and comply with all safety regulations. We get alerts on all expiring licenses and competency. Also with the Field Worker app it makes it easy for us to get all data necessary from our field workers in real-time from uploading time sheets and site safety forms to getting performing site safety inspection forms and accepting allocations. Assignar has been essential to the rapid growth of our company. https://perfecthire.com.au
