“… a centralized and integrated project management system needed to be implemented”
inRange Solutions faced several challenges due to its use of disparate systems. They managed over 50 project types in spreadsheets and homegrown databases, resulting in multiple systems and duplicate data entry. This left them without a single source of truth for projects, making it difficult to quickly answer executive questions. Their limited visibility into data made it challenging to create KPIs and manage them over time. Additionally, outdated technology prevented them from seeing the critical path to completing projects and meeting goals.
InRange Solutions faced several challenges due to their decentralized approach in customizing processes for each site installation, service, and maintenance project. Their operations were slowed down by scattered data, and the lack of a standard playbook made it challenging to train new hires, especially while working with major clients like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, Crown Castle, and American Tower. Additionally, cross-functional collaboration between project managers and finance team members was difficult due to varying ways of tracking and managing projects. Field workers also faced delays and increased turnaround times because of the lack of mobile access. To mitigate these issues, a centralized and integrated project management system needed to be implemented.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SOLUTION:
- Sitetracker Mobile to reduce turnaround times
- Trackers for managing a high volume of projects and sites
- Intelligent Project Templates for 50 different project types
- Real-time reporting to enhance visibility and accountability
