Overview

LWA’s business depends on the efficiency of their engineers in the field. The company realized that many existing processes were wasting time and not making the best use of their team resources. To solve this they turned to Fluix’s Paperless Workflow solution.

"With Fluix, we have instant access to see the status of documentation as it is completed in the field. Being able to check-in on document status online saves us from making costly and unnecessary trips to projects."

Challenge

  • Field team spent valuable on-site time on tasks like flipping through printed binders
  • Only senior level engineers were capable of doing a majority of the work
  • Delays occurred when a new engineer picked up partially completed work

Solution

  • Use Fluix to digitize tasks as fillable PDF forms with all equipment units pre-listed so needed information is readily available
  • Delegate checklist post-processing to office staff with instant data delivery
  • Add ability to postpone and reassign tasks to other engineers within a project

Results

  • Simplified on-site process that can now be used by both senior and junior engineers
  • More work done with accelerated task execution and instant data turnaround
  • Document collaboration streamlined with Fluix workflows and messaging capabilities
"Fluix is the best tool for distributing, tracking, and collecting documentation during the building commissioning process. It is a perfect fit for the custom forms that are essential to our business."
