Challenge

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

The company realized they needed to go digital to streamline their processes with one solution that organizes, distributes, and maintains all documents. In addition to providing technicians specific instructions of which documents to complete in order.

Solution & Benefits

Gewalt-Hamilton found the perfect solution for the company’s ever-changing schedule, with Fluix workflow automation and document management software.


  • Mobility. When field sheets need to be created and ready to go at a moments notice.
  • Documentation throughout every stage in a project. From completing documentation in the field and organizing based on associated projects, to sending completed documents back to the office.
  • All documents in one system. Keeping all data in one place decreases redundancy, errors and confusion, while increasing output and quality of data.
"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 field documentation and organize it on a per project basis."
