When you are ready to scale, there are several aspects to consider. Of course, you could add more employees to increase capacity, or you could utilize technology to make your current employees more effective, streamline your operations, and open the door to more opportunities.
Quoting times have been drastically reduced from about 4 hours to 30 minutes. Our quoting consistency has vastly improved and the guys are absolutely over the moon about it. Using the configurator to 'bypass' the drafting team and go directly to manufacturing has reduced production lead times by 3-4 days. The ROI on our current use of the software internally is massive--at least 80%. Rolling out the software for use by all of our distributors and installers will increase our return even more!
You're an expert in your industry, and our goal as your software partner is to learn from your experience and work together to not only create the tools you need to work without bottlenecks, but also problem solve ways to improve your process overall. Our dedicated team of US developers have extensive experience evaluating business processes with our clients to identify ways to optimize your workflow. This means that you don't need to have the entire scope of your project defined before we work together. Our agile development process enables us to start building your solution where you're in the drivers seat so that your ultimate software asset fits you like a tailored suit. We develop in an iterative process (see more about Iterations) where we keep your ideal destination front of mind daily.
Often companies recognize they have a need to improve their workflow, but don't know where to start. Our goal is to help you ask the right questions, and find the critical pain points to solve.
Here are two key indicators that you might need custom software to enhance your workflow:
1. Over-dependence on spreadsheets
Custom software is a massive opportunity if you find yourself using spreadsheets to manage data where communication, visibility, and accuracy are problematic. The investment to streamline your data management has proven time and time again to exponentially enhance performance and improve your bottom line.
2. Sensing gaps in ERP performance
What can't your ERP do? In order for you to improve your process, it might be time to eliminate the frustration of technology insufficiency. We have a proven track record helping companies remove gaps in technology by delivering sustainable software that frees up operations to perform without limitations.
Whether you have a workflow that needs improvement, need software to enhance existing systems, or you need to create a new workflow from scratch, custom software could be the missing link. We want to work with you to discover your needs, and intimately learn your domain so your company can streamline your process, and scale sustainably! (see about business scaling)
