Texas-based electrical contractor achieves significant cost savings with automated field requisitions and purchase orders.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kojo (formerly Agora Systems) today announced that Gonzales Commercial Electric is using Kojo's purchasing platform to automate their purchasing process and reduce office overhead. Leveraging Kojo's integration with ComputerEase, Gonzales Commercial Electric is able to receive requisitions from the field digitally, send purchase orders to vendors instantly, and auto-sync the information into their accounting system in a matter of clicks, resulting in a 50% gain in order processing efficiency.
"Kojo has enabled our purchasing team to spend 50% less time on processing purchase orders."
"We knew we needed to automate field requisitions and the purchasing process, which is why we chose Kojo," said Jose Alaniz, a purchaser at Gonzales Commercial Electric. "Kojo has enabled our purchasing team to spend 50% less time on processing purchase orders. From 20-30 minutes per PO to 10-15 minutes per PO. The software has been a game changer."

Keeping projects on track and under budget becomes simpler with the ability to track orders and deliveries in real-time.
