WIMCO Reaps the Benefits of eCMS v.4.2 Content Management & Workflow Implementation and Estimates Over $50K Savings
WIMCO Corp, a family business that has completed more than 2,900 projects and built a reputation as an industry leader through its adoption and utilization of advanced technologies to support its commercial building construction, has recently implemented eCMS v.4.2. The eCMS v.4.2 Construction ERP Software implementation included the roll-out of CGC’s advanced Content Management and Workflow applications.
Key driving forces included WIMCO’s recent exponential growth, increased invoicing volumes and complexities, and their outdated digital imaging system.
Today, the Invoice Register feature provides WIMCO access to all invoices and bills within a single platform that is integrated with all other features and applications. A standard coding table was available out-of-the box, which was then customized to meet the company’s unique needs. Admin rights were quickly established and data from the old system was pulled and transferred.
Further, eCMS Content Management & Workflow applications ensure ongoing interconnectivity between the field and office, as they help WIMCO collect, modify, disseminate and store of mission-critical documents with easy-to-use, simple tools during daily operations. PMs can view subcontractor billing in IDIs (CGC’s Business Intelligence tool) or export to Excel as needed, as well as pull or view data within IDIs as desired. Information can be color coded for streamlined processing or flagged as missing change orders. The bottom line is improved efficiency, heightened processing capabilities and greater functionality across the enterprise.
“For a few years, various unforeseen circumstances caused us to put off a system update because we knew that we could not dedicate the time needed for implementation not to mention the change and disruption we thought would come with it. But finally, our exponential growth afforded us the ability to revisit some of the great new products Computer Guidance had to offer. It was evident that the complexities of our invoice workflows had become a significant drag on our overall productivity. Partnering with CGC, we made a smooth and seamless transition to eCMS v.4.2 and now enjoy significant time savings, tremendous operating efficiencies, and substantially improved cash flow,” said Darlene Moore, EVP/Secretary Treasurer, WIMCO Corp.
