The process of turning these field tags into a request for change order is a cumbersome task. When (and if) they come in from the field, extra work orders are often not processed in a timely fashion, submitted with the proper paper trail, or even processed at all. As a result cash flow suffers and profit loss occurs.
EWO Assist is the software solution that allows subcontractors to fully manage and monitor the extra work order approval process. No longer are extras performed in the field without management knowledge. Now you can eliminate the need for multiple people to shuffle stacks of paper back and forth. With EWO Assist, you can stop chasing down approvals, verification, or crucial pricing and labor information. What used to take days or even weeks can now be easily accomplished in minutes with this tailored fit application.
