Progress Tracker overview

Matrak's Progress Tracker is a digital representation of the physical wall chart seen onsite and is updated in real-time with actual subcontractor progress.

The benefit of the Progress Tracker is that it provides everyone on-site with the ability to see building progress in real-time!

As subcontractors mark off tasks in Matrak, the digital wall chart will automatically reflect their progress, allowing Project Managers to be proactive instead of reactive if any part of the build is falling behind the construction program and costs you time and money.

The progress tracker also means that project coordinators no longer have to walk up and down between floors and the site office multiple times to update paper wall charts the will have to be printed and redone when things go wrong.

This single source of digital truth also means subcontractors can quickly provide evidence of work completed for timely and accurate progress claims.

How Progress Tracker works

In Matrak, on a project's interactive colour-coded drawings - each room, apartment and space has an associated card view. The card view highlights configurable progress states based on a trade sequence of work.

So as subcontractors tick off completed work, all sequence tasks are are reflected in Matrak’s audit log for full transparency.

When the status of sequence tasks is recorded, Matrak’s digital wall chart automatically updates the status of a level and apartment. Meaning this wall chart offers the visibility needed for site project managers to determine if projects are progressing on time and on budget and be proactive early if the project is falling behind schedule

How to setup your project for progress tracking

Linking records allows users to link and connect any material to another material (ex: subcomponents), location, or tasks.

How to setup your project for progress tracking:

From the home page go to the Link Records page from the left hand side bar.

1. From the drop down list select your location record type that you wish to link to your other sub-location record type.

2. Populate the columns with the location and sub-location ID's you wish to link. If you already have these internally or in an Excel spreadsheet, you can copy and paste them directly into the table.

3. Once all the location and sub-location ID's are added into your table, click the "create" button on the top right hand corner of the screen. A pop up message will appear to confirm that your links are correct. If they're not, click "cancel" and amend the table.

4. If everything is correct, click "confirm" to link your records. A confirmation message will appear in the bottom right hand corner when these records have been successfully linked.

How to generate specific reports based on different record types:

With the ability to filter reports based on specific status types, workers can easily identify potential issues or areas of concern. Having access to filtered reports also allows project managers to make more informed decisions based on accurate and up-to-date information.

Overall, filtering reports based on specific status types provides valuable insights that can help them optimize operations, save time, and make informed decisions.
