GNR Studio: Enhancing Project Efficiency Through Clarc

“It’s not just management time that we’re saving but time on projects generally is better spent.”

Company Background

GNR Studio is an architectural consultancy based in Auckland, New Zealand.

How We Use Clarc to Optimise Project Efficiency

Co-Founder and director of GNR Studios, Greg Turner, explains how Clarc has made it easier for their team to work within the budget of a project and how that saves time and increases efficiency.“Before Clarc we were using proprietary timesheet software but I needed a tool that would help us simply and quickly match project time budgets to project tasks.Knowing how much time to allot to a particular design task can be difficult which makes preventing time budget blowouts a challenge.

Challenge & Solution

Clarc allows the design team to adjust the amount of time they spend on a task by giving them an understanding of budget and the level of detail required. With Clarc we get a good match between the team’s output/deliverables and the budget available. I now have confidence that staff understand how much time to allot to each task which means this doesn’t have to be constantly reviewed and reinforced by a manager. There is also better feedback from the team on whether time budgeted is actually realistic for the task.
