Your Problems, our Solutions

Archdesk is a cloud-based next-generation ERP software created for project control and efficiency at all stages of each client’s workflow. Initially, dedicated entirely for the construction and production industries, it has now expanded on the roofing industry as well.

Having recognised the tedious problems roofing companies need to face on a daily basis, we can finally share with you our second to none ideas and solutions necessary in overcoming the challenges you might face. Find out for yourself!

  • 01


    Archdesk ERP software works best with repeatable processes and actions, which means that the more repeatable your processes are, the easier it is to implement and to use our software. Thanks to our Processes tool you will:

    • have an overview of where you are exactly with each project

    • easily access and follow the development of the stages

    • know which project is at which stage

  • 02


    Before going on-site subcontractors need to make sure that everything is ready, all information is provided and a clear overview of the projects on-site is in place. In order to answer tight scheduling challenges, we offer you a Scheduler tool that will:

    • list all your employees and assets within a company

    • outline the tasks of all the projects across the company

    • help your project manager with verifying the overlaps and the gaps between projects

  • 03


    To respond to payment issues, we offer you Valuations and Quotation & Estimation tools. Bill of quantities (BOQ) is divided into easily updated sections and actual items, works, materials to be completed and delivered within a specific project. Thanks to our handy tool, you can forget about having to enter specific information manually each time because:

    • the system is partially automated, which will speed up your processes

    • the invoice is created automatically without calculating it again or copying the data from the valuation document

    • at the end of the day the system calculates the total value of the work completed

    • the validation is created within our system with a customised approval process for each company

  • 04

    Financial dashboards

    Thanks to financial tools, you will:

    • get live-information, updated automatically on a rolling basis

    • get access to all the financial information that you have within one project, from quotations, through budget orders, budget invoices, sales invoices to evaluations

    • get information concerning:

      • the budget

      • the project value

      • the project cost at the moment

      • your profitability at the moment

      • the anticipated profit at the end of a given project

    • keep track of your payments, both received and outstanding

    • get a summary of a budget by cost category

      • Each time you add something to your Quotation, Archdesk assigns it to the cost category leading the system to summarise every category’s spendings and budget, marking where you exceeded the budget;

      • You are able to access this information by clicking on the budget breakdown, where you have all your items from all your quotations assigned to your projects;

      • You can verify what was budgeted versus what was on purchase order versus what was invoiced;

  • 05


    Using our procurement solution you will be able to manage all projects from one easily accessible place.

    • you can automate your procurement processes

    • once your quotation is ready, you can create a purchase order by going through sections and choosing specific items you would like to put on your purchase order

    • the only thing to remember is editing and choosing a supplier from the supplier's database

    • keep track of your payments, both received and outstanding

    • once you have the quotation ready, the procurement process is not a manual work of copying data from one part of the system to another, instead, they are all linked

  • 06


    • streamline your Timesheets

    • make sure you have full control over the clock

    • manage employee information and generate employee reports

    • automatically generate the expert’s records for the labour done by your employees, enabling you to automatically track your labour costs

    • approve every single timesheet record that’s added into the system

    • have every timesheet record addressed to the system and approved

    • When you generate a report for your employees’ working hours, it is always divided into confirmed and unconfirmed hours, the latter not being turned into the expense record for tracking labour;

  • 07

    Asset Management

    Never again lose, miss, or overbook an asset. Thanks to our asset management tool you will

    • be able to manage all of your assets in the system

    • minimise the chance of loss, misplacement or overbooking

    • easily divide your assets into categories to keep track of every single thing separately

    • be able to set up the availability of the specific thing used in case of renting some equipment for your multiple works

    • be able to add additional customer input to indicate whether it’s their own equipment or a rental equipment - for the latter, you can set up its availability up-to-date

  • 08

    Stock control

    This feature will let you:

    • manage your stock levels and procurement needs

    • improve loss prevention

    • keep track of your materials and details of each product that you possess

    • use the catalogues with the items used for your projects, both the ones in stock and the ones available for rent from a supplier

    • keep track of the exact quantities of various items at different locations

    • add the stock, reserve it for the project or deduct it

  • 09

    Daily Inspections Form

    Get information from internal and external partners when they are ready. Make data sharing easier, faster and accessible using our custom forms solution. A dedicated form will:

    • be filled out by the employees on a daily basis, on any given information, such as weather conditions during the working day

    • allow your project manager to be aware and up-to-date with all the events happening on-site

Archdesk supports all your needs with its innovative solutions. From the Processes tool, through Financial dashboards, all the way to the Daily Inspections Form, you name it! We are here for you and so is our ERP software, which is going to be your problem solver!

The innovative solutions that we offer will not only help you manage your projects simultaneously but it will also support all of the additional activities that might turn out to be necessary. Tasks will be done quicker and manually, which will spare you time, resources and effort.
