Solutions for Civil Contractors
E7 provides Civil Contractors with a daily clear line of sight of status and performance across an entire project, greatly assisting with the continuous planning and execution of works. E7 minimises the risk of cost and time overruns, acting as a trusted source of truth, creating transparency where good news is bad news fast rather than late surprises.
Clear line of sight on project performance
Complete project visibility and transparency in real-time, all of the time.
E7 provides real-time performance tracking, giving project and organisation leaders a clear line of sight across all aspects of a project. It focuses on tracking real-time performance within each monthly cycle tracking cost performance against cost forecast commitments made each month during end of month management cost reviews showing early trends of variance against these commitments to allow daily correction to keep the project on track.
In order to achieve this, daily cost and progress measurement is required.
E7’s robust and flexible resource rates model enables accurate calculation of daily cost and supports the calculation of end of month accruals for costs incurred but not yet invoiced.
Multiple flexible daily cost capture methods, including a mobile docket solution that can be provided to subcontractors, allows the workforce to submit their own dockets creating accurate costs by end of shift.
These processes have a significant impact on reducing administration overhead leading to a significant reduction in the number of people required to manage these processes.
Simple and fast daily quantity progress measurement estimates allow supervisors and engineers to progress their scope. Survey corrections can be made once this information is available. E7’s API can be used to automate progress measurement where machine telemetry or automated drone survey measurements are available.
Leadership peace of mind
Total confidence that your team is set up for success.
When a project is 20% complete, it is almost impossible to change its trajectory, and remedial action requires massive spend to try and mitigate an overrunning schedule. E7 creates lean, efficient teams that are set-up for success. Through active monitoring and analysis, the performance of a team can be continually evaluated, to give you confidence that everyone is performing their role in line with expectations. In addition, total transparency means that actions can be taken to support teams as they deliver major projects. E7 provides complete peace of mind that a project is on track.

E7 identifies and tracks change events, recording the information needed to be the single source of trusted data that supports the quantification of the impact of change and disruption. This means that delay or disruption claims can be simply and accurately verified; avoiding reputational damage as well as costly and time-consuming litigation. Through E7 project performance is controlled and maximised to reduce waste and delay and boost productivity and profitability.

Solutions and benefits
- Earned Value / performance management
Projects typically rely on each discipline running their own manual earned value and performance calculations in spreadsheets.
This siloed, unwieldy and inconsistent data makes project-wide weekly and monthly reporting time-consuming and vulnerable to errors. E7 provides a standardised, disciplined approach to earned value and performance management that integrates with planning and cost management systems for further benefit. It gives teams a central system to collect rich labour timesheets and progress data.
- Progress measurement
- Progress claim verification
With competing demands on most projects, tracking progress at various levels – from teams to disciplines to areas to whole projects – is a common challenge.
This is compounded when a project has no central daily record of activities against a broader program. E7 enables the daily tracking of progress across a wide range of inputs and metrics, linked to a project’s activities. Through dashboards and reports, leaders gain quick visibility to support efficient and effective decision-making.
For lump sum and schedule-of-rates projects, data that verifies progress claims has traditionally been captured in siloed spreadsheets, requiring significant manual effort to maintain, share and reconcile records.
E7 supports the clear, indisputable and efficient verification of subcontractor claims. Actual progress is captured and assessed through standardised workflows, giving certainty and transparency to contractors and subcontractors.
- Progress / schedule collaboration
E7 rewrites the rulebook on collaborations, providing the data, insights and tools needed to support high performing project teams.
E7 is the only construction platform that directly integrates programs, safely sharing them with entire project teams – dramatically increasing information sources and opportunities to collaborate, re-prioritise and improve. This effectively harnesses the power of a construction program as a live project resource, not an outdated client document.
- Events and notices
- Photo management
- Daily diaries and reports
E7’s mobile event capture form places responsibility as close to the action as possible, enabling any team member to record events in real-time and set in motion a clear, defined workflow, best positioning projects to stay on track. Resource time can immediately be allocated to Events to clearly show the impact of change.
E7 enables a disciplined approach to project photos. Once taken, they are linked immediately to activities, events or tasks, creating traceability and searchability for the life of a project. This turns photos into readily-usable assets for reports and other key project documents.
Daily visibility is critical to managing task and wider project performance, and to rapidly addressing problems as they emerge to protect the critical path and project profitability.
E7 provides a standardised solution and central source for daily records that are otherwise difficult and time-consuming to extract from paper diaries. Even compared to other electronic diary solutions, E7’s advantage comes from fully integrated data, providing rapid access to a rolled-up view of project activities.
- Timesheets / timecards
- Attendance and competency
The fast, accurate tracking of labour, equipment and materials input on projects underpins profitability.
E7’s timesheets solution offers the benefits of digital records, saving time and reducing input errors while creating a powerful record of the quantum of resources booked against project activities. It allows instant feedback of daily performance to enable early identification of performance challenges to support better management decision making.
The efficient, accurate management of large workforces impacts project productivity and profitability.
E7 uses existing hardware, paired with the E7 app, to enable supervisors to scan in their crews from anywhere in the field, or projects can create easy mobile kiosks. The result – real-time, reliable, searchable persons on board data.
