DMS Industrial Constructors Inc. Case Study
DMS Industrial Constructors Inc. is one of western Canada’s fastest growing mechanical contractors. DMS specializes in industrial piping and equipment installation for new construction as well as expansions, maintenance turnarounds and plant relocations. With the commitment to the growth and prosperity of their employees, clients and community, DMS required a software solution that would allow them to improve upon their current processes and become a more efficient business overall.
With that being said, DMS leveraged Jonas Construction Software to streamline payroll, improve job costing, and simplify the lives of their project managers, all through one integrated software solution.
Jonas Construction Software has helped DMS improve in three specific areas of their business: enhanced productivity, streamlined payroll, and improved reporting. With respect to data entry and the subsequent distribution of information to their project managers, DMS has seen big-time savings and gains in efficiency. As Judy-Lynn Hiebert, Chief Financial Officer at DMS Industrial Constructors states, “There have been times when we had original estimates with up to 10,000 cost items, and to enter all of that information in the past would have taken us 3 to 4 days to complete, which now takes us about 5 minutes to simply upload through Jonas.”
When it comes to payroll, DMS has seen big improvement when it comes to their processing times, “Previous to Jonas, we had two full-time payroll administrators to complete 18 different union payrolls. Since implementing Jonas, we have been able to reduce this number to one part-time payroll processor, and regardless of the number of employees, the amount of work will never increase.”
With all of their information integrated within Jonas, generating reports is now a lot easier to complete for DMS, and with the mobile solutions from Jonas, their project managers are able to view these reports right from the job site. This has not only helped increase productivity but has also allowed their field staff to make more accurate and informed decisions.
Since partnering with Jonas Construction Software, DMS is running a more efficient and effective business overall. One of the main benefits DMS has experienced since deploying Jonas has been enhanced employee satisfaction. As Judy-Lynn states, “Virtually everyone within DMS now uses Jonas, from the administrative assistants, to the project managers, to the general managers. The great thing about Jonas is that no matter what their role is, they are able to access the information they want, and more importantly, they are able to access it themselves without having to wait for someone to send it to them, which is a real time-saver for us.”
Another great benefit Jonas provides for DMS is the true integration between departments, as well as the various companies DMS operates. The integration between accounting, job cost, and service effectively eliminates the inefficiencies that would occur if multiple software was to be used, simply by having a fully-integrated software solution such as Jonas Construction Software.
In the six years, DMS has been a Jonas Construction Software partner, their business has become more efficient, they are more productive, and their employees are much more satisfied. Having a complete, all-in-one integrated software has allowed DMS to add new businesses and migrate them onto Jonas with ease. Their back-office staff, field staff, and management team are all more productive with Jonas in place, and with such an intuitive software system, all DMS employees are confident they can complete their jobs more efficiently.
With more streamlined and optimized business processes, their customers are also much more satisfied with the service they are receiving from DMS. The partnership between Jonas Construction Software and DMS has been a positive experience thus far, with the best yet to come.
