ProCal Lighting is a comprehensive engineering, design and installation firm specializing in lighting control and projects that provide sustainable energy savings. From San Diego to Sacramento, California, ProCal has worked on the Coronado Bay Bridge, the San Diego Convention Center and designed and installed lighting for the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. They have an extensive portfolio but were wasting time on unnecessary phone calls, text messages and trying to figure out who was where and how long the job would take.
Spreadsheets didn’t help manage their workforce
They were using an Excel spreadsheet that was manually updated once a week that only a few people had access to. It would take a few hours to update on Monday and by Tuesday, it was inaccurate. ProCal needed help simplifying their workforce management.
ProCal found LaborChart and noticed immediate advantages. For Ericka Chianis, Project Coordinator, she didn’t have previous experience using a platform like LaborChart, but dove right in. She was able to quickly take advantage of the Gantt page, use the cloud-based workforce management platform to forecast ahead and efficiently manage labor for the smart lighting electrical contractor.
LaborChart provides a holistic view
Now, everyone can see what’s next. They no longer have to search through four different tabs to find one piece of information. LaborChart helps them see what’s next for their people and business with a simplified view and easy-to-understand experience.
Today, ProCal is focused on being efficient, saving time and focusing on tasks they didn’t have time to complete before LaborChart. There are no more calls trying to figure out who’s going where. The frantic text messages and emails are long gone. Now, ProCal simply selects a resource, drags them to the appropriate job, drops them to confirm scheduling and everyone involved is alerted — it's that easy.
LaborChart has simplified their workforce management
From scheduling labor for a solar installation project to field staff working on a job site, LaborChart has created complete visibility for the entire ProCal organization. For Chianis, she now has time to focus on crucial administrative tasks — budget updates, preparing closing documents, communicating ongoing projects details, hotel bookings and more. Like many others, LaborChart has helped make her job what it should be.
