It's 2022, but contractors are still struggling to find the tools to help improve the productivity of their teams. We believe they deserve a better way.
Workyard is a game-changing workforce management system that helps contractors and field services companies improve their profits by better managing their labor.
My co-founder (and sister) Alex and I grew up in a family of trade professionals. From an early age we knew we wanted to build things, but were drawn to using technology to do it.
I studied computer science and spent almost 20 years helping companies develop technology products to create a competitive advantages and deliver superior customer experiences.
Alex studied design and spent the early part of her career focusing on making technology more usable for the end-user.
In 2015, my wife and I lived through a major remodel of our house. Observing the project end-to-end was enlightening. The morning coffee with the team became a ritual, and after many conversations I realized that our contractor was fantastic at his craft but was struggling to find workers and manage the operational side of his business.
I realized he was in it for the love of building. The administrative side of the business, though? It wasn't why he became a builder.
I immediately saw how technology could play a big role in helping contractors grow and better manage their workforce. Technology could free up construction professionals like my contractors from the mind-numbing administrative work that comes along with their growing business and also provide new insights on how to save money and increase profits. I could help them focus on doing more of what they love. Building.
Through my relationship with the contractor that built my home, Workyard was born, and our mission to build an industry leading workforce management solution was established.
