What is Payapps?
Payapps is a simple yet powerful cloud collaboration tool suitable for all contractors that saves needless time and money wasted on application for payment submission and approval.
Payapps bridges the gap between multiple organisations and stakeholders, by providing an easy-to-use, real-time, online collaboration platform. Developed specifically around construction needs, it works by allowing contract parties to collaborate on a neutral platform, eliminating the need for endless spreadsheet reconciliations, email trails and heated phone calls.
How will it help my business?
Payapps reduces cost, drives efficiency, improves returns and reduces risk, by delivering immediate benefits that grow over time:
- Cost reductions: measurable savings in contract administration management, reductions of up to 50%
- Time savings: collaborative automation, efficiency, and transparency
- Risk control: Construction Act compliant, reduced disputes, and adjudication
How does it work?
Payapps works best as a collaboration tool, between main contractors and subcontractors, but it can be used independently to send beautiful, conforming applications for payment that your main contractor can easily understand, every month, on time, every time.
As a collaboration tool, the main contractor is the administrator of the system and sets up the contracts. The other parties are then invited to join by email. Each month, automated reminder emails are sent to remind subcontractors to submit applications for payment, which are prepared online, in seconds, by simply entering values. Conforming documentation is then produced instantaneously and delivered by email, and seamless integration with leading construction software packages provides a complete end-to-end solution.
For independent use, the subcontractor simply creates a contract using their contractor’s details, allowing them to send beautiful, conforming applications for payment that their contractor can easily understand and can quickly and easily assess. They then simply update and self-approve their application as per the contractor’s payment schedule and they can even automatically generate and send an invoice that exactly matches the application.
