Equipment Time Tracking

  • 1.  Equipment Time Tracking

    We are an electrical subcontractor servicing the utility industry and use Sage 300 CRE. We are in the beginning stages of a full scale roll out of the equipment module for assigning equipment costs to jobs.


    I am looking for insight regarding mechanisms for reporting equipment hours from the field. We have AboutTime, but the process for assigning equipment hours using it would be extremely cumbersome. I am trying to eliminate the back office having to key punch equipment hours and am looking for a direct import into the Equipment Module. Excel is an option, but am curious if there are any other software products that interface with Sage 300CRE.

    The site-work contractor I retired from in 2018 has used B2W Track for over 16 years to report labor and equipment hours from the field.  Field superintendents record labor and equipment time on laptops or tablets. The labor hours loaded directly into the payroll system and the equipment hours directly into job cost. B2W interfaces with all the major software's including Sage. Even if you don't need the labor hour solution, it's worth it just to get accurate equipment time in the job cost. The system also deals with dual equipment rates if you use them. We also found their customer support to be excellent.
