The problem

Field workers were getting bogged down by materials management

For WBE, materials management was a clear area for improvement. Like most electrical contractors, WBE didn’t have a single system to handle materials – field request for materials, POs, warehouse logs, delivery receipts, invoices, and the processes to handle them were all siloed. As a result, there wasn’t an easy way to facilitate the communication and transparency. Field costs went up and WBE’s five purchasing agents spent 20% of their day manually entering purchase orders.

The solution

Streamlining requisitions and POs with Kojo

Kojo was the perfect solution for WBE. Using Kojo’s Amazon-like mobile ordering application, WBE’s foremen now submit requisitions to purchasing agents digitally from the field. Purchasing agents convert the digital requisition into POs and send them electronically to vendors with just a few clicks. Requisitions, RFQs, POs, invoices, and delivery receipts can now be tracked digitally and in real-time.
