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.

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.

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

Assignar has streamlined our operating systems in a way that saves time and is really easy to use. Clients are always impressed with our QHSE Management System and Assignar has certainly added value to productivity.

Pros
I'm involved with all aspects of Assignar but I especially love the ease with which it is maintain our Health and Safety compliance documents for contractors as well as qualifications and inductions for our operators. I also love the fieldworkers app and the guys have adapted well to it.

Cons
We have a couple of operating issues as we allocate multiple assets to single fieldworkers but we are hoping to fix this.
