LaborChart Solves Project Request Challenges for Mid-Size Mechanical Contractor

The Problem 

A Utah-based mechanical contractor was having trouble communicating and following through on project requests. Labor requests were informal; recorded on yellow legal pads or made over conservations on jobsites. There wasn’t a central system for tracking the labor for each project. As a result, requests were being dropped and overtime was spiking. 

The mechanical contractor needed more information about its labor pool, a way to automate project requests to avoid down time and layoffs as projects scaled up and down.

Right Information 

The mechanical contractor integrated its enterprise resource planning software with LaborChart for real-time, digital tracking of certifications. When new employees were hired, their information was readily available in the digital system. The contractor also created customized fields to reflect the specific expertise of its labor pool to ensure the right mix of skill sets and experience on each project.

Go Mobile 

The mechanical contractor moved from yellow legal pads to digital tablets in the field. The improved connectivity aided in communication by instantly alerting the team in the field to project requests and labor transfers.
