How do you know if the work that's performed at your locations, facilities, restaurants, stores, etc. actually was performed?  It's not enough to simply rely on invoices (or worse, memory). Once an invoice is received, it can be difficult to verify exactly what occurred. There is increasing demand from retailers, finance staff and facilities managers to have their contractors and vendors provide supporting evidence of time spent on-site and that work was completed to satisfaction.
