The client was struggling to manage multiple softwares for the business verticals like Electrical, Heating, Ventilation and Plumbing etc. The disjointed maintenance management processes were causing loss of time and cost overruns.
There was a lack of an unified Ordering System and Monitoring Tool. Real Time Order Monitoring and Status update tools were also unavailable.
Manual process of distribution of orders to the vendors and tracking those manually was cumbersome and error prone. It was managed through phone calls and / or emails. This process was unable to generate correct status of work at EOD.
The work order processing require engagement from multiple parties engaged in various stages of maintenance and refurbishment, it requires lots of operational tracking, process updates at different stages. Lack of trust and transparency with accountability is a big challenge.
There was lack of a centralized communication system. If the vendor were unable to process the work order due to unavailability of resources or any other reasons, then the job got delayed because of lack of information. Stakeholders were not aware of real time situation from every team/vendors due to missing centralized communication process impacting decision making process. Due to lack of communication, order distribution was getting delayed impacting delivery deadline. As a result they were losing the revenue at the end.
There were no digital management of records. Only Paper based process of maintaining certificates and other documents of vendors were cumbersome and tough to manage. Fetching of correct documents during vendor selection process and job distribution was quite difficult.
