Make the most of your resources
Use Cartegraph to see exactly how your time and money are being spent. Easily track everything from labor and equipment to materials and vendors for every task. Then, use that data to increase efficiency, stock inventories, justify new hires, and show council what you’ve been up to.
People are at the heart of your maintenance operations. Use labor resources to track exactly who worked on what and for how long. Track workers as individuals or group them into Labor Crews. Assign individuals or crews to tasks. They enter their time and total labor costs are automatically calculated based on their stored rate.
Backhoes, lawn mowers, chippers, generators, and more: Use equipment resources to log every tool you needed to get the job done. Record the hour or mileage rate associated with the piece of equipment and never lose sight of the true cost of maintaining your infrastructure.
Tip: Looking to go the extra mile with your vehicles? Cartegraph's Fleet Management extension does it all. Track mileage and fuel usage, schedule preventative maintenance, track repair costs—like oil changes, tune ups, or parts—and use our Vehicle Replacement Rating (VRR) to know when it's time to start looking for a new set of wheels.
Understand what your crew has on hand and what they need. Materials can be marked as either non-stock or stock items:
- Non-stock items: Looking to track material usage on tasks and related costs, but not worried about tracking the inventory in Cartegraph? This material type has you covered.
- Stock items: Want to keep tabs on quantities to make sure this supply never runs out? Mark these supplies as stock items and the system will help you keep track of inventory on hand in addition to logging material usage and costs per task.
Tip: Make inventory management even more of a breeze with Cartegraph’s Advanced Materials extension. Pinpoint if that part you’re looking for is in the warehouse, shed, or the back of your coworker’s truck with the help of Material Locations. Use Material Orders to receive alerts when your supplies are low and use the system to place a reorder with the vendor.
Speaking of vendors, whether you’re recovering from a FEMA disaster, borrowing some expertise, or buying supplies, sometimes it’s time to call for reinforcements. Cartegraph helps you organize your preferred vendors, compare material price quotes, and track all the costs associated with those materials or contracted work.
