We decided to partner with TrackVia, because their solution not only provided the flexibility we needed to meet the unique and sometimes evolving needs of our projects but also afforded us with unparalleled visibility and control across our operations.
Denver (PRWEB) October 25, 2016
TrackVia announced today that KS Industries (KSI), the top provider of engineering and construction services for the energy sector, has implemented TrackVia’s next-generation low-code platform to rapidly create custom web and mobile applications that streamline critical field workflows. With TrackVia, KSI has gained centralized, real-time visibility and control over its field personnel, processes, and projects, which are often situated in remote areas hundreds of miles from the nearest office.
Prior to TrackVia, KSI managed its projects, work orders, and even safety protocols using spreadsheets, email or paper. These tools were both manually intensive and prone to data entry errors, which made it difficult for management to track project statuses, monitor safety procedures, measure costs, and analyze key metrics. The company tried implementing off-the-shelf software solutions, but they found that they were too rigid to successfully support KSI’s varied operational needs across projects, sites, and customers.
“We decided to partner with TrackVia, because their solution not only provided the flexibility we needed to meet the unique and sometimes evolving needs of our projects but also afforded us with unparalleled visibility and control across our operations and mobile workforce,” said Eric Crozier, CTO at KSI. “With TrackVia, we know exactly what’s going on anywhere, anytime, which helps us dramatically cut project timelines and costs and ensure employee safety and productivity—ultimately enabling us to consistently provide our clients with a high quality of service.”
TrackVia’s native and offline mobile capabilities allow KSI’s many mobile workers—even those in remote areas with very little to no network connectivity—to access site-specific safety instructions, document that proper precautions were followed, and stay fully coordinated in real-time with the back office. With TrackVia, management is able to better act on and monitor key metrics, such as the quality of work performed, the performance of their personnel, and the level of adherence to strict safety standards across various teams, locations, and projects.
Additionally, KSI has now automated many of their key processes, such as employee assignments, daily work plans, and safety inspections. TrackVia’s real-time insights coupled with its intelligent automation allows them to quickly spot and remedy any potential issues, delays or safety concerns instantly. After implementing TrackVia, they were able to increase employee productivity, improve project efficiency and on-time delivery of work, as well as ensure proper safety precautions are followed—further helping them to deliver on their promise of providing their signature “World Class Operational Excellence” to their many customers.
“We are excited to partner with KSI, an innovative and leading engineering and construction services organization, in their efforts to digitize field work and to ensure the safety of their employees,’ said Pete Khanna, CEO of TrackVia. “Through the use of our fully-customizable, mobile solutions, TrackVia aims to help enable KSI, their employees, and their many customers to benefit from improved operations and streamlined workflows.”
