Easily manage high volumes

There are total number of 1,045,400 construction industry workers in Australia*

We understand that many construction recruitment agencies work with clients that demand lower margins based on a high volume of candidates. A single software to manage all of your recruitment needs, FastTrack360 simplifies and streamlines workflows to help you process applications fast, identify the best candidates, ensure they have the right qualifications and fill them to a job.

Eliminate the manual data entry, double handling and risk of human error that comes with using multiple systems to manage recruitment and free your staff to focus on the important client facing tasks that generate repeat business. Plus, with one end-to-end system you can also see the expected gross margin on a job before you place candidates so you can better manage your cash flow.

Accurately process complex payroll faster

The power of FastTrack360 seamlessly translates data from recruitment and timesheets to help you accurately pay your workforce and bill clients. Pay your large workforce of trades, labourers and contractors against complex awards in minutes, not days. Or turn hundreds of timesheets into payroll with just one click.

Plus, FastTrack360 has the power to manage your candidates across multiple sites. Unlike other options, FastTrack360’s inbuilt hierarchy includes cost centres so you can easily capture the time a candidate works across multiple work sites so your timesheets and invoicing matches your client needs and optimises your cash flow.

Improve your candidate experience

The most important job environment factors that influence the work of construction managers are using email (100%), phone (99%) and face-to-face discussions (98%)*

Imagine the time you’d save with online and mobile timesheets. They include automated email reminders for your trades, labourers and contractors to enter and submit their timesheets, and for clients to approve them, ready to be translated into payroll. No more having to spend hours chasing up candidates for missing timesheets!

Plus, with 24/7 access to FastTrack360 online portals (at no added cost), you can easily connect with your trades, labourers and contractors. Your own branded online portals set you apart to make communication and engagement seamless, providing next level service. With the flexibility to show the data you want, you can provide self-service to your candidates to manage their profile and availability, view applications and jobs, manage online timesheets, view payslips and apply for leave. Plus, there’s a portal for your clients too.
