The Case for GoCanvas

Ram Environmental Response is a leading emergency spill response company headquartered in Kelowna, British Columbia, with offices located throughout Western Canada. They provide around-the-lock spill response, site remediation, special services, and training services for both land and inland lakes and rivers. They have earned a reputation for being well trained, well equipped, and safe and quick with their responses.

Originally, Ram Environmental Response was using paper forms to capture information on site such as: daily work orders, safety tailgates, and mileage logs. They stumbled upon GoCanvas when one of their subcontractors was using it on their job site. Fascinated, they decided to take a deeper look into the platform and realized it was exactly what they needed with the way their business was scaling.

 

Implementation

Ram Environmental Response is a family owned business, and they were excited with their ability to grow into offices all over Western Canada. However, when your business scales, it’s important that you are able to handle what comes with that: more paperwork, more jobs, and more communication between locations. That’s why GoCanvas fit so well into their growth plan.

“GoCanvas is a platform for people who are really looking to streamline their business,” said Laurie Stathopolus, the Project Management Administrator. “This is such a great tool and great way to get all of your employees using the same forms.”

With new offices opening up in Calgary, Edmonton, and Prince George, it was important to get all of the employees on the same page ahead of that expansion. Now whenever one location needs a form they are able to access it digitally, send it back to headquarters, and have it filed electronically.

The Results from Going Digital

GoCanvas has given them the ability to track down paperwork easily. The team feels at ease knowing the information is being collected uniformly across different locations and is easily accessible to anyone who needs to see or use it.

With their company continuing to expand, Ram Environmental Response plans to add more and more employees to their GoCanvas account.

Although they have not kept track of the hours saved since implementing GoCanvas, Laurie mentioned that they take for granted how much time it has saved them.

“I’ve never see such a great platform for streamlining business and reports,” she said. “It’s incredible and amazing.”
