From Paper to the Cloud: Why Compliance Management is Going Digital

Hiring contractors is nothing new; employing a construction company to get building work off the ground, or bringing in an IT freelancer to implement a new software system is all part of running an organization and sourcing the best skills for your projects. But the way we deal with contractors, and the compliance issues associated with them, is changing.

In this digital age, chasing paperwork, marking off checklists and filing documentation are becoming admin tasks of the past. Here are just some of the ways that taking a more technological approach to compliance can benefit hiring organizations.

1. Standardize Procedures

When you’re managing compliance digitally, you can stay on top of everything that needs to be done, from one place. Everyone has access to what has been requested and uploaded, and everything is monitored and handled in a standardized way, removing the use of disparate systems and involvement of multiple departments.

2. Improve Audits

When inspections are taking place, you need to be able to prove that your company and its third party contractors are adhering to high standards, and to display a proven track record of compliance. When these records are stored digitally, you’ll have access to all the information you need, even at short notice.

3. Reduce Admin

Automating your contractor related compliance will cut previously lengthy manual processes. With software such as Contractor Compliance, you can spend less time chasing contractors for the information you need by simply requesting it in-app. You’ll see when the correct details have been submitted, and will be notified when any items are due for renewal or have expired.

4. Improve Communications

When drafting external workers into your business, it’s important that relationships run smoothly. Communicating with contractors is key in ensuring that briefs are understood and met, that any problems or issues can be resolved promptly and that everyone is on the same page throughout the term of employment. Using digital software such as Contractor Compliance allows you to talk to contractors in-app, and instantly get your message across.
