With VPO, SIMPLUS [since acquired by Anser Advisory] is more productive. We do more with less people, take on more work, and make more money. It’s also been a tool that our clients have embraced, making them more productive. VPO is so easy to use and implement that we’ve found that we don’t need to add additional staff on larger projects. VPO helps reduce that need, adds value, and makes us more competitive. We’re doing much more with less people, resulting in higher revenue.
Because many of our clients are public entities such as schools and authorities, their projects carry more stringent documentation management and records archiving requirements to maintain transparency into a project’s execution. Many people don’t realize just how much paper and documentation are involved with public construction projects, and streamlining the flow of documents and automating, managing, and archiving communications are an important part of the services that we provide.
Our clients hire us to keep projects on schedule and under budget without sacrificing quality or cutting corners. VPO is a great tool for helping us consistently achieve those goals while maximizing resource utilization. Documents are located and questions are answered a lot faster, and the system saves us a ton of time, and money because there’s no extraneous effort to locate information or documentation. Everything is so easy to access or update, and everything is tracked. There’s no need to do things by hand or make manual updates.
As our construction management business continued to grow—and we had more projects to manage concurrently—we began looking for a better, more organized, single-platform solution. While all of the vendors could handle the basics of processing submittals and change orders, we wanted a solution that was more customizable. With VPO, we’ve streamlined our workflows, improved communications with clients and contractors, and have realized an effective quality control function in the process.
