Improving Construction Payroll and Labor Management for Contractors

For labor-intensive organizations, payroll is one of the most difficult administrative challenges. Trusted to run dozens of North America's largest and most complex union and non-union contractor payrolls, PENTA Construction Payroll Software can drastically reduce the overhead required to manage and improve your payroll and labor cost control processes, from mobile field time entry to analytics and reporting:

Payroll Burden Allocation

PENTA contractor payroll software allows you to choose from several payroll burden allocation methodologies. Apply actual labor burden expense on cost plus jobs, use estimated overhead allocation rules on lump sum projects, use standard charge rates to distribute Project Manager or other executive salary expense to your jobs and use any combination of these rules on a single job:

  • Actual Burden Expense: Fringes, Taxes & Insurance
  • Standard Charge Rates
  • Estimated Burden Allocation as a percentage of base labor or rate/hour

Field Labor Time & Expense Reporting

PENTA mobile construction apps expedite the collection, transmission and approval of labor time, expenses, reimbursements, and other payroll data from the field. PENTA provides field software solutions for professionals, crews and field service technicians:
