Inefficient operations made it difficult to grow
The absence of a repeatable ordering process was a headache for PMs and accounting, but, the biggest complaint was from the field: they were not receiving materials that they had ordered reliably. Foremen lost hours on the job as a result.
Without checks and balances, accounting didn’t know if the supply house were charging the right amount for orders and had to confirm each invoice with a project manager. PMs were wasting time reviewing hundreds of invoices a month and it could take up to six months to pay bills.
Improving operational efficiency with Kojo
Armed with a roadmap designed in collaboration with the Kojo team, RC Power began implementing Kojo company-wide to ensure that every material order went through the platform.
Key Kojo app features
- Digital requisitions and POs
- Delivery confirmations
- Pre-approved materials lists
- Streamlined materials quoting
- Hold For Release tracking
- Accounting system integration
Consistency, Reliability and Transparency
Easily track purchase requests
No more complaints about materials not getting ordered or received. The team uses the app to make and track purchase requests.
Complete visibility into materials management
RC Power is now able to identify and cut inefficiencies to save valuable dollars.
Confirm PO payments with confidence
The accounting team can confirm all dollars spent on equipment and material as all packing sheets are linked to every PO in Kojo.
Complete payments faster
RC Power is able to pay their bills faster than ever since all ordering information lives within Kojo. The number of invoices has been reduced to one or two per week.
All team leads who are ordering materials regularly from the field have adopted the Kojo software.
Increased company morale
Team members know that ordering is in their hands - if an item doesn’t get ordered, the blame can’t be shifted. Team members - including PMs - take ownership of the entire ordering process.
