Garrity Asphalt Reclaiming, Inc. has over 30 years of experience in the reclaiming space. They are the largest company of their type serving the New England and New York markets.
With a crew of around 75 employees and a wide array of equipment, they effectively undertake pavement reclamation, cold planing, fine grading & rolling, calcium chloride, and snow plowing operations.
Being the bigger fish in the pond, Garrity naturally attracted multiple projects. And along with it arrived the complexities of project management, from planning to managing the crew from remote locations.
Thus, they enlisted us to help them streamline their operations to save time and money in the long run.
The two major challenges with any construction company in the US were adapting technology and finding the right IT services companies who understood the sector's needs.
Also, Garrity being in the reclaiming space works with contractors who charge on an hourly basis. But the manual and repetitive duties involved took much of their time, thus costing the company a lot.
Our expertise being in both business solutions & technology, we gladly welcomed the challenge and saw a whitespace opportunity to disrupt the way construction companies worked forever.
We aimed to build a centralized digital platform that would improve their efficiency without compromising on their quality of service while handling multiple projects.
Being a firm believer in simplicity, we steered towards eliminating the challenges by conceptualizing an easy to use and adapt web-mobile application for the construction crew.
Thanks to the e-CSM we built, the dynamics of Garrity’s operational processes transformed and enhanced drastically. The modern technology and intuitive user interface enabled them and their customers to effectively collaborate and quickly regain control over projects. Garrity works on hourly invoiced contracts, and all the manual tasks involved used to cost the company hundreds of dollars. But with the e-CSM, they were able to save time which directly impacted the amount of money they could save for the business. Hence, it effectively helped tackle the complexities of managing projects, manpower, and equipment. And the company witnessed an overall improvement in their efficiency and customer satisfaction.
"Garrity Asphalt Reclaiming has been using JSimple's application for managing all the manpower activity and for maintaining reports online, thus streamlining our construction process. This application provides a central platform allowing a company to handle activities, including but not limited to, creating jobs with schedule or proposal, approval of jobs, creating crew in startup for a job, time card and daily ticket with all working and equipment details. After a comprehensive evaluation the product for over 4 years & 6 months, Garrity concluded that there is a synergy between the two brands that has resulted in a profitable relationship for both.
