Taylor Woodrow The Challenge

The Challenge

Taylor Woodrow’s senior team decided it was time to review their processes and introduce a new, digital way of working as well as providing the very best service to subcontractors. A platform was needed that would smooth out any issues, save costs and reduce manual effort in processing payments.

Daniel Jameson Staunton, Managing Quantity Surveyor at Taylor Woodrow explains. "Our previous platform wasn’t particularly user-friendly – manual effort was required which on a rare occasion, lead to payment notices being missed. This and the risk of applications for payment being issued informally is a big no in our business, so we wanted to implement a solution that would take this element away, making processes smoother for our teams."

The Solution – Introducing WebContractor

Since introducing WebContractor, Taylor Woodrow have shared that their processes around the payment of subcontractors are more efficient. The team have picked up the platform and it has seamlessly fitted into existing systems.

Commenting on the initial few months, Daniel said: “We’ve all picked up the platform really well, but the level of support we get has been fantastic. We have weekly meetings but aside from that, our team send emails and ask quick questions here and there, and the WebContractor team respond immediately resolving our queries.


Subcontractor Benefits

Alongside daily emails and reminders, WebContractor offers a dashboard – which makes it quick and easy for Quantity Surveyors to track, monitor and categorise invoices. Providing a central point for everyone to review, it helps to ensure all notices are paid on time and flags when action is required.

Taylor Woodrow will look to roll out the use of WebContractor across all of its projects. Daniel added: “Since introducing the solution, we have a structure that enables us as a team to get everything done in advance and allows a sign off period. It’s made everything very straight forward for us as a business and has saved huge amounts of time and cost.”
