Foundation Mobile App Integration

  • 1.  Foundation Mobile App Integration

    We are a mid sized specialty contractor and like many in the industry, have fallen a little behind with the times when it comes to technology. We were looking to start asking our Field Superintendents to report time cards through a mobile app this summer/fall. We use Foundation software and we thought that the natural fit for us would be to use their mobile app. Everything was running smoothly until I ran a test this week and to say the least they have been unresponsive to my issue. Does anyone out there use Foundation and have a mobile app that they can recommend? We are looking to report time cards, equipment, and daily's. We use a lot of cost codes and would require more of a grid like time card rather than the traditional clock in/out format.

    We've only just started using mobile.  Once they realize they need to do it to get paid, they will use it.  Are you on the Foundation forums?  There are a few heavy mobile users there too.

    I love Foundation mobile and the way it integrates with payroll.

    Hi Jill,

    I'm not on the Foundation forums - maybe I should check those out. I'm a little irritated that I would need to do that, I think my field trainer should respond to my inquiries. Glad to hear you like it - maybe once I get passed this issue we will have success with it.

    We too are having this issue.  We are using an outside payroll system BenefitMall - using their construction based program CompuPay.  I can't find something that will help us.

    We have Foundation and use HCSS (which integrates seamlessly with Foundation) for timecards, equipment, daily's everything you asked about. It works really well - we are an underground civil construction company-for all of our needs.

    We are a heavy highway contractor that uses lots of codes, phases etc.  We use B2W for all of our Operational needs.  The field uses B2W Track to submit daily field logs for time, materials, production​ etc.  We are able to import all of the information into Foundation for payroll.  It works great.

    Hi Nicole - By 'Grid',  do you mean like this? (See video at the end)
    https://youtu.be/ObXIy-Wv8Cw

    - where all codes, days, subsections, paytypes etc are on screen?

    If this is what you are need, there are fundamental  things you need to make an integration work.

    Im happy to chat.

    Cheers,

    Nicolle,
    We use Foundation Mobile and use thier grid time sheet.  If you log into foundation mobile from a web brouser and not the app, you will see a grid time sheet is available.  We have been using the modile time entry for many months and was frustrated with the transition.  The grid time card is used by the majority of our foreman for entry.  Only a hand full of employees are allowed to use the single time card.  You are welcome to contact me if you have questions.

    Thank you Paul, I appreciate you sharing. I was able to use the grid time sheet but it is getting hung up when submitting. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Foundation is willing to help us resolve the issue so we have decided to cancel our subscription for the mobile app and will be pursuing one of their software partners. If I'm having problems with submitting from our office I can't imagine what I would be doing to our Superintendents who are on the road.
