BAM Wegen has the in-house expertise for almost any activity dealing with road building and management: from design to construction to maintenance. Moreover, BAM Wegen looks after projects dealing with the ground, sewage and environmental activities as well as noise reduction and area development. Comprising over 1700 employees and six locations in the Netherlands, the company wanted to improve their administration of working hours and travel time of field employees, not only because of big labour intensity, but also because reliability was of paramount importance. Adding to that, the increased pressure on being price competitive demanded a change of tactic.
At BAM Wegen, the information flow surrounding travel time and working hours is important for several processes:
- to calculate the exact compensation of the travel time/distance in accordance with the collective agreement of the construction sector
- for the subsequent calculation of projects based on time worked and traveled
- to prevent extreme work hours in the case of very urgent and time-sensitive projects, such as applying heated tarmac in order to make the roads use-ready in a more condensed time frame.
Digitized travel time and work hours registration
In June 2013, Fleet Complete delivered a system that digitizes the complete travel time and work hours registration of the in-field employees. The system automatically determined travel time and processed it into a travel compensation in line with the collective agreement of the construction sector. It also registered the hours worked per employee per project and, as a result, BAM has at its disposal a comprehensive trip administration for tax purposes without employee interference.
Information linked to in-house ERP-system
All travel time and work hours data were linked to Metacom, BAM’s ERP-system. This ensured that all work hours information was immediately available in Metacom for subsequent calculations. In addition to that, the travel time compensation information was promptly included in salary administration. Fleet Complete’s software assesses the working hours based on the Working Hours Act. The project leader will receive a notification when employees exceed their work hours allowance, so that it can be addressed from the onset.
