Austin Engineering Company Embraces Digital Transformation and Says Goodbye to Paper Documents and Processes
With no document imaging solution in place, Austin Engineering was handling all business-critical documents manually on paper. The AP invoice process was not only time-consuming but, also resulted in errors, duplication of effort, manual tasks, and certain delays.
In addition to an antiquated invoicing workflow, labor information was collected manually from the field and entered by hand into eCMS for processing.
Further, the firm manually managed more than 122 pieces of equipment, including corresponding usage information, repair costs, depreciation, and job costing.
Evaluating Austin Engineering’s business processes quickly demonstrated that the firm needed to implement a construction software platform that could automate its business operations workflows, house its integrated project, employee and company data, and manage and distribute the firm’s information in real time and on demand.
Austin Engineering implemented eCMS v.4.1 and deployed several additional applications to its core accounting to bring new automation and enhanced fact-based decision-making, as well as standardization and basic innovation to the company.
