Continuing its efforts to help roofing contractors build their businesses, GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, recently announced an alliance with LaborSync to offer industry executives a one-stop labor management solution. This cutting-edge technology helps business owners control costs and enhance profitability by managing their workforce more efficiently.
LaborSync is a cloud-based labor management solution that allows roofing contractors to monitor the time and location of their work force from their mobile device. Through a downloadable app, employees can clock-in and clock-out directly from their smartphones and the information is then delivered through customizable reports to the business owner. Benefits to contractors include streamlining payroll processes and facilitating real-time job costing. The platform also offers special features including messaging, field notes, and GPS location tracking.
GAF Master Elite® and Certified™ Contractors throughout the United States and Canada enjoy a 20% discount on the LaborSync management solution. Contractors can contact the GAF CCP team for pricing and ordering information at 1-888-532-5767.
“Our contractors have been asking for a labor management solution,” said Jim Slauson, vice president certified program and services at GAF. “LaborSync’s technology offers them the ability to run their businesses more efficiently and cost-effectively.”
LaborSync Director of Sales Matthew Satalino stated, "In addition to the tangible benefits we offer, roofing contractors utilizing LaborSync will be able to quickly adapt to new market trends and outpace their competition by having concrete labor and project hour information. LaborSync allows roofing contractors to bring their outside jobs inside and better manage their projects and work crews, which could ultimately result in higher profit margins.”
*Contractors should check with their own legal counsel before utilizing Labor Sync, as there may be limitations on the use of such a product in the jurisdiction(s) in which they operate.
Founded in 1886, GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company’s products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by its commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple. GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles, which then evolved with the introduction of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System by extending the Lifetime coverage beyond just the roofing shingles.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF has developed Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, which provides excellent durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of scarce natural resources. The company has also developed single-ply and asphaltic membranes with excellent durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption.
GAF also supports the roofing industry through CARE, the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which has provided education to over 125,000 professionals. CARE’s mission is to help professional contractors and distributors build their businesses through sales and management education, and to provide product and installation training to contractors, distributors, architects, property owners, and related industry personnel.
