Heartland Mechanical Contractors Case Study
Heartland Mechanical Contractors is a commercial heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) contracting company, with a reputation for outstanding workmanship, honesty, and integrity. No matter the project, Heartland can take it from initial concept to completion, ensuring a high-quality and efficient HVAC system with the optimum life cycle costs.
Heartland Mechanical performs both job-based and service-based projects within the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors. In 2002, Heartland Mechanical transitioned to Jonas Construction Software with the goal of increasing efficiency, managing processes, and streamlining their overall operations.
Since implementing Jonas Construction Software, Heartland Mechanical has become a more efficient business overall. More specifically, Heartland Mechanical has doubled the number of employees, effectively increasing their size by 100%, all without having to increase the amount of back-office staff to accommodate their growth.
Another big area of improvement for Heartland Mechanical has been in their subcontract control. “I can’t image not having the subcontract control from Jonas,” stated Carrie Dierks, Controller at Heartland Mechanical Contractors. “We are now able to easily track and manage subcontractors to make sure we are not getting overbilled. The process is now much more efficient, which not only helps us save time, but money as well.”
Heartland Mechanical also likes the ability to bill according to each individual change order, which provides them with an organized system and more accurate information as well.
Partnering with Jonas Construction Software has provided Heartland Mechanical with a software solution that is specific to the needs and requirements of their business. With regards to the support received from Jonas, Heartland Mechanical is able to get immediate assistance when needed, allowing them to reduce downtime and be more productive.
They also like the fact the Jonas continues to assist them, even years after the initial implementation. As Carrie Dierks stated, “We love that the Jonas Account Management Team regularly keeps in contact with us to make sure everything is going well and if there is anything further we need. It’s nice to know that if we have ever have a question or concern, there is a dedicated account manager at Jonas whom we can reach out to.”
Another benefit Heartland Mechanical has seen with Jonas is reporting. With both easy-to-use built-in forms, as well as customizable forms, Heartland Mechanical can create standard reports and reports with customized fields, providing them with the flexibility to report on information that meets the needs of their business. They also have received positive feedback from their customers regarding their invoicing through Jonas.
While Heartland Mechanical is still in the process of transitioning to mobile solutions, they will not have to search for another software system, as Jonas already has the mobile capabilities required when they are ready to go mobile.
Since 2002, Heartland Mechanical has steadily improved their business with Jonas Construction Software. They have been able to double the size of their business, all without having to add any additional back-office staff to accommodate their growth. They also now have an efficient process in place to track and manage their subcontractors, which has helped them saved both time and money.
With Jonas, Heartland Mechanical is able to get the support they require on an ongoing basis and like the fact that they can reach out to their dedicated account manager at any time.
