Subcontractor Management

For most general contractors, managing subcontractors is a time-consuming, costly, and manual process. Risks are high if you don’t have proper documentation on them.

Qmerit transforms the way companies’ vet, onboard, manage, and objectively measure their subcontractors. For the first time, you’ll have complete visibility and control over your entire subcontractor network.

 

Digitize and Optimize Your Subcontractors

 

Compliance

Qmerit automates your compliance process to ensure all of your subcontractors have accurate documentation on their licenses, insurance, I-9’s, safety training, and more. Contractor credentials are continuously monitored to ensure compliance and alerts are sent to you and your subcontractor when documentation is about to expire to reduce your compliance and service risk.

Qmerit’s SAFE-IN/SAFE-OUT™ feature lowers your company risk by driving contractor behavior to meet OSHA and company safety procedures.

Measuring Performance

Our exclusive Qmerit Contribution Index™ (QCI) perpetually measures the performance of your subcontractors. We calculate a QCI™ score of 1–1,000 for each of your contractors to identify the best and worst performers. 

The QCI™ algorithm has been vetted and validated by the quant group at Mercer (MMC), the world’s largest human capital consulting firm. Similar to a FICO score, our QCI™ score is computed based on a multitude of attributes including compliance, responsiveness, quality, customer feedback and more.

Selection

We help ensure you receive the highest quality work for every service request by selecting the optimal subcontractor based on their QCI™ score, labor rates, driving distance and more. These attributes can be weighted based on your corporate values and objectives.

Network Meritocracy

Our QCI™ scoring transforms your subcontractor network into a fair and objective meritocracy where strivers and achievers are rewarded with the most work.

Site Survey

Our Digital Site Survey eliminates paper-based estimating forms and eliminates all the double-entry and mistakes inherent in the process. Our customizable digital surveys enables you, subcontractors or even your customer to easily capture all key data points and photos using a smart phone or tablet. With our solution, you can ensure all of your required questions are answered by the assigned estimator on the first visit.

Bid Process

Once the Digital Site Survey results are received, we auto-generate a digital scope of work that can be sent electronically to your subcontractors for more accurate bidding. 

Qmerit digitizes the entire bid process making it easy to get multiple bids before awarding work. Your subcontractors easily upload their bids, so you have instant visibility and a central repository for all bid requests and outcomes. Once a selection is made based on price and their QCI score, winners and losers are notified.

Close-Out Survey

Once your subcontractor completes their work, you can request they complete a digital close-out survey on their phone or tablet.  The digital survey can ask them questions about the work completed as well as ensure they capture photos of their completed work, the permit, nameplate data off the installed equipment and more.

Pictures tell a thousand words. Now you can see the quality of your subcontractors work, even if you can’t physically go to the job site.
