MC Contracts Ltd have banished their paper job sheets creating a time saving of 45 hours a week, increasing efficiency and productivity.
MC Contracts have been providing exceptional building services throughout their home town of Ipswich and the rest of the UK. With large national contracts, multi-disciplined staff and solid business practices under their belt, it’s no surprise that MC Contracts have grown exponentially and become an industry leading name.
Before MC Contracts started using MyMobileWorkers back in 2012, they were managing 15 engineers through paper. They were struggling to operate effectively and was finding it difficult to compete to win new contracts in such a competitive industry.
Historically MC Contracts have looked at many systems with most being cost prohibitive. In their search for a solution they wanted something that was cost effective, easy to operate, easy to set up and to provide a return on investment.
They then came across MyMobileWorkers which married their plans for a more efficient way of working, that could be utilised by all workers.
The time it took to sign the contract to the set up period and usage was a matter of weeks. The benefits were apparent immediately.
"Investing in this new technology has been a huge boost to our company."
Mark Calver, Managing Director
As an SME it’s vital we are as efficient as possible, especially in the current economic
climate. Not only does this app make our engineers more efficient but it saves on the
administration work as staff don’t have to input the jobs onto the system.
Mark Calver, Managing Director
Since using MyMobileWorkers, MC Contracts have been able to reduce administration time and costs, not only in the office but out in the field. The workforce, made up of 45 users, no longer have to complete mounds of paperwork as it is all inputted into the device in their pocket.
This has created a 45 hour saving a week as workers no longer have to travel to and from head office to drop off paper job sheets.
By using the job tracking software the office team can receive job sheets as soon as they are completed. This has increased efficiency within the office teams and also means they can process and send invoices almost instantly, increasing cash flow.
MyMobileWorkers has allowed MC Contracts to improve the speed with which they can attend maintenance call-outs.
