We can make your life simpler with easy-to-use and affordable solutions, so you can focus on getting more bids and doing great work for your clients.

Construction payroll features and benefits

We talk to our construction clients about their day-to-day challenges — such as tracking and paying employees across multiple jobs at different rates — and then we combine their input with our industry expertise. The result? Solutions that meet the needs of the construction environment. With our payroll software, you can:

  • Run payroll without having to reenter multiple rates for states, unions or trades
  • Pay unbanked workers using Wisely® Pay by ADP, a prepaid Visa® card
  • Withhold and pay union dues from employee wages as needed
  • Compensate employees with accrued union vacation benefits

For even more benefits, integrate our payroll with time and attendance programs and you’ll be able to assign employees to a job based on pay rate and skill level.

Construction payroll FAQs

How do you keep track of construction employees’ hours?

If you’re a contractor or in the construction industry, you can keep track of your employees’ hours using either paper timesheets and punch clocks or mobile time tracking apps that have GPS and geofencing capabilities. Digital solutions make it easier to track employees on multiple job sites, thereby minimizing the risk of mistakes.

How do you do construction accounting?

Construction accounting requires an understanding of basic accounting practices – debits, credits, financial statements, etc. – as well as job costing, which helps manage the many variables of running a project-based business. A construction payroll service that is capable of paying employees across multiple states and unions may also be helpful, especially if you want to save time.

What is a construction cost report?

Tracking the physical completion of a job across milestones can help control construction project costs. When the first milestone is achieved, look at your material, labor and overhead expenses. If these costs went above what was originally forecast, you can correct the issues that caused the overage in successive milestones and bring the project back within budget. Another way to control costs is to spread overhead expenses among multiple jobs that might use the same equipment.
