LCPtracker Facilitates New Jobs and Training to Those Who Most Deserve it.

Orange, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/24/2017 -- LCPtracker, Inc., the leader in construction compliance management software for public works, offers a collection of software solutions that make hiring practices and wage payments transparent.

The transparency that LCPtracker software provides not only allows government agencies to track wages, demographics, locations and skill levels, but also the economic impact each project has on the targeted community. Government agencies, public works and construction industry decision makers can instantly identify shortfalls and adapt quickly to ensure the contractors are hiring apprentices.

With over $150 billion of construction data, LCPtracker is able to provide real data and statistics to assist new public works projects to target underrepresented workers. "We have a program that we know any community could benefit from," said LCPtracker CEO Mark Douglas. "In the city of Seattle we found that only 6% of project hours were going to local workers, but in just one year Seattle tripled the number of female and minority apprentices.

This June, President Trump pledged to support new apprenticeship opportunities, with a goal of creating 5 million new apprenticeships. Congress is preparing to invest $1 trillion on infrastructure projects slated to start in 2018. LCPtracker is dedicated to ensure those new apprenticeships go to the communities that need them the most. "By targeting efforts to our most underserved communities we are creating opportunities and a living wages for those residents," said Douglas. "Those living below the poverty line will be able to exit the revolving cycle of public assistance and become self-sufficient."

Using LCPtracker's web-based SaaS solutions for collecting, verifying and managing certified payrolls and workforce requirements is the most effective way to make data-driven policy decisions to adjust programs that address the areas of need.
