How Advanced Construction Technologies Eliminated Paperwork & Increased Data Visibility

The Background

Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT), serves as an industry leader in the environmental and geotechnical construction and engineering space. They offer a wide range of specialized services from vapor intrusion, contaminant testing, geotechnical construction, and much more. Although based out of Southern California, ACT is recognized for its work across the United States.

The Problem

Before GoCanvas, Advanced Construction Technologies was spending over 120 hours each month tracking down personnel records and different reports for their clients.

The Information collected out in the field would often time be incomplete and inconsistent, making it difficult for the company to invoice correctly and hold employees accountable. They wanted to focus on increasing visibility and communication between the field and the office in order to improve their customer experience and streamline processes throughout the company.

The Solution

One of Advanced Construction Technologies’ employees, Fernando Monay, introduced GoCanvas to his boss when he was hired. Prior to working at ACT, Fernando worked at a company that had successfully implemented GoCanvas. When Fernando switched over to ACT, he immediately knew that GoCanvas would help alleviate the issues they were experiencing with their paper-intensive processes.

With GoCanvas, ACT has now created a streamlined process for collecting information that can be analyzed in real-time. Previously, they struggled with how to collect and track their change orders. It was very common for approvals to be forgotten and it could sometimes take days for the information to get back to the office.  But since their implementation of GoCanvas, change orders are being submitted with all the necessary information and in real-time. This makes it so the office staff can immediately approve and pass information to the client without delay.

The Outcomes

Since implementing GoCanvas, ACT has expanded its use cases to include everything from Daily Reports to Time Cards. These mobile forms utilize features such as:

  • Workflow
  • Photo Capture
  • Reference Data
  • Signature Capture

These features help ACT accurately report information to customers and give the office staff full visibility into the daily productivity their field staff.

Since replacing their paperwork with GoCanvas, ACT is still expanding their data reporting capabilities! They are currently working on integrating GoCanvas with some of their backend systems to totally eliminate all manual data entry and take back that time in order to complete more jobs. ACT has already saved themselves over 1,440 hours annually and over $30,000 in paper cost savings alone.
