Challenge

  1. 1 Project inefficiency due to mismanaging field documentation.
  2. 2 Time and costs wasted on paperwork. Office managers had to download PDFs, print and insert them in multiple binders for field technicians to edit.
  3. 3 Project delays due to continuous changes in documentation. The scope of jobs between a service provider and a client is constantly increasing, decreasing, or getting canceled.

The company realized they needed to go digital, driving true business process transformation with a document control software (e.g. digital document processing, organizing, distributing and storing). In addition to, providing technicians specific instructions of which documents to complete in order via automated workflows.

Solution & Benefits

Gewalt-Hamilton implemented Fluix workflow automation SaaS solution for:


  • Mobile data collection. When field sheets need to be created and ready to go at a moment’s notice.
  • Field documentation. From completing documentation in the field and organizing based on projects, to sending completed documents back to the office.
  • Automated workflows. Document management and digitization of processes decreases redundancies and human errors.
“With technicians all over the Midwest and Southern United States, the ability to pass the field sheets to them within 5 to 10 minutes is critical. Fluix has been an incredibly valuable asset we use to streamline digital document processing on a per-project basis.”
