Frequently Asked Questions

Traditionally, construction manpower tracking was done by pen-and-paper. Workers would either keep track of their own hours on paper timecards (a system that relies heavily on trust), and some poor supervisor would have the thankless job of doing manual counts and verifying the timecards. And if the job required certified payroll, then someone from the compliance department would have to manually follow up and verify all this information. As you can imagine, this opened the door for buddy punching, ghost workers, and clerical errors.

SmartBarrel completely automates this process. No one has to sit there with a pen and paper manually counting workers. Instead, workers  clock-in on SmartBarrel’s device when they get to work, and clock-out when they leave for the day. SmartBarrel uses advanced facial verification to verify their identities on both clock-in and clock-out, and keeps a live headcount of everyone on site.

The manual process of tracking manpower usually involves a field foreman or superintendent walking around and counting the number of workers on the jobsite. With SmartBarrel, our construction manpower tracking technology makes checking in instant so workers can not only be on the field much quicker, but you have accurate verified worker headcount available at your fingertips.

With construction manpower management technology, employee pictures don’t need to be uploaded. SmartBarrel has biometric facial recognition that uses machine learning to verify a worker’s attendance.
