Increase cash flow visibility, simplify compliance and remove manual, time-consuming processes.

Get back your team’s time
WebContractor removes the need for manual processes, paper documents, spreadsheets, and multiple systems to manage AFPs. It can also be easily scaled as you grow.
Automated workflows and notifications remove the need for time-consuming chasing and as subcontractors can view the status of their own applications in the platform, it helps reduce the number of calls and emails into the finance team.

Commercial user benefits
Standardise the process
Webcontractor standardises the Application for Payment process, making things easier for the commercial team to understand, submit and track.
It removes the time and effort associated with processing and managing applications from subcontractors submitted in a variety of different document formats across multiple channels. The commercial team can log into WebContractor from anywhere to see all the information associated with a project, subcontract order and Work Package with just a few clicks.
Easy approvals, automated notices
WebContractor allows commercial teams to approve, track, store, and sign orders in a central, online location with a full record of all document changes and signatures.
Rich detail can be added to subcontract orders and projects when evaluating and approving to provide detailed feedback to subcontractors or an internal approver. The system then automates all payment notices, making the process simple and straightforward.
Fully managed onboarding
Our fully managed onboarding service gets subcontractors up and running on the system quickly, so the contractor and their team can quickly realise the benefits of a streamlined, digital process.
The WebContractor support team handle requests from all users about the system, removing the need for the commercial team to field these types of enquiries.
Building subcontractor relationships
WebContractor is completely free to subcontractors and helps to build stronger relationships by introducing agency, transparency, and clarity.
Subcontractors submit and manage their own applications and can view the status of their applications at any time, via the platform. Both the commercial team and the subcontractor know where they stand with each application reducing confusion and friction.
The WebContractor platform can be accessed by users from any device with an Internet connection, to allow them to work at a time and place that is convenient to them.
A QS can manage applications onsite or at the office from a desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone, with any changes updating in real-time for other members of the business and subcontractors.
