Arcoro provides solid groundwork for Florida roofing giant

South Florida-based Latite Roofing needed to streamline labor tracking in order to keep up with its large and diffuse workforce. They chose Arcoro’s time and attendance tracking. Here’s their story.

With over 400 employees spread across 70+ job sites, Latite Roofing takes the crown for largest roofing company in the state of Florida. For more than 70 years, Latite has relied on its skilled workers and close client relations to tackle all types of roofing projects, both commercial and residential.

Yet, as the industry has grown and technology advanced, some old processes began taking a toll on Latite. If the company was going to accommodate their high volume of jobs, they had to meet certain needs.

To solve their time tracking and workforce management needs, Latite decided to partner with Arcoro because of its proven, feature-rich time and attendance module.

A strong tradition of safety

Latite Roofing takes safety and compliance very seriously. The team gathers for toolbox talks weekly to review safety precautions for specific projects, as well as compliance and other regulatory measures, to ensure team-wide understanding—from management down to workers. This helps keep workers safe and the company bulletproof against potential compliance run-ins.

Goals

• Integrate time-tracking with existing operations
• Simplify timekeeping
• Paperless labor cost reporting

Results

• Paperless time and activity tracking
• Total time and labor cost transparency
• External recruiting costs eliminated
• Data available for strategic oversight and decision-making

Time Tracking & Scheduling

For a company that values safety and compliance as highly as Latite Roofing, it only makes sense they would partner with a workforce management company that applies the same attention to detail to time management.

Cutting costs wisely

The Latite Roofing team knows no matter how large or small the job, everything comes down to cash flow. This is why they rely on Arcoro’s time and attendance software to follow the money on each project. Using the labor data provided through Arcoro reporting—from overtime hours to workers’ locations—Latite is able to zero in on which crew did what and for how long, allowing them to effectively manage regular and overtime hours, and other overhead expenses, and make adjustments as needed.

We can see whether we’re within our budgets with Arcoro’s reports. We can cut down or cut out overtime hours easily now. It’s great,” says Sally Hackle, Latite’s Service Manager of West Coast Operations.

“We’re not putting all our time into checking other people’s time. We can focus more on the things that matter. Arcoro is a big timesaver.”

Making payroll a breeze

Working on hundreds of job sites at the same time means many wheels are turning at once, and every second counts. Any inefficient processes will be magnified in their effects on profit margins and operations.

One process nearly every business owner, HR rep, or payroll manager dreads is staying up-to-date on weekly payroll. According to Hackle, the company’s ability to complete payroll seamlessly now is one of the biggest benefits of the Arcoro time and attendance solution.

“Before Arcoro, we’d have to send our spreadsheets over to Corporate to be processed,” said Hackle.“ Now, we can manage all of our workers in house with a couple of clicks through Arcoro—their time on the job, their travel, and everything else. It’s definitely saved us money.”

Arcoro syncs with over 90 different payroll processing platforms—so whether you use Viewpoint, Sage, Foundation or a different software, payroll is much simpler. By exporting time and attendance data in minutes and speeding up data transfer, users can rest assured payroll will always be on time and accurate.

By choosing Arcoro, Latite Roofing is able to uphold their exceptional reputation by cutting costs, increasing margins, freeing up payroll processing time, and keeping their crews productive. Now, from the top down, Latite can focus on more important tasks than thumbing through paper time cards.

“With Arcoro,” said Hackle, “we’re not putting all our time into checking other people’s time. We can focus more on the things that matter. It’s a big timesaver.”
