Plant Manager Case Study
Armoury Demolition prides itself by completing contracts to budget and time with numerous demolition projects throughout the country. The company uses innovative techniques within the industry. Their clients range from local authorities to private and public development companies.
Armoury demolition prides itself on client service and reputation.
The main problem areas that the company highlighted were accurate location of plant, resourcing of plant, health and safety, cost control specifically regarding plant hire and company invoice processing. Administration time allocated to invoice checking small values were also a concern to the company.
Many departments within the company were not receiving accurate information and on time. Time spent collating total cost spends for plant would take days rather than minutes.
Armoury Demolition contacted Joyce software after extensive research in the construction software industry. Many software products on the market were found to be specifically for plant hire companies.
We were asked to demonstrate the program to a number of departments within the company. It was apparent that the program met all their requirements.
A number of features that were not on the Armoury checklist were demonstrated. The Health and Safety department welcomed these additional features.
Joyce Software agreed a lease amount, which included installation, training and support. The whole process from initial contact had taken just three weeks.
