Stefanutti Construction, a family-owned Civil Contracting and Plant Hire Company established in 1997, has established a strong presence on the South Coast of NSW. With humble beginnings, the company has grown its fleet to over 65 heavy machinery items and expanded its workforce to over 100 skilled staff members. One of the key factors setting Stefanutti apart from its competitors is its commitment to quality service and hands-on client engagement. Despite their success, operational challenges emerged due to inefficiencies caused by manual allocation and scheduling processes.
- Enhanced Visibility and Communication
- Reduced Administrative Burden
- Efficiency in Scheduling
When texts can’t cut it
Before implementing Assignar, Stefanutti Construction relied on traditional methods such as whiteboards and Excel spreadsheets for workforce and machinery allocation. Additionally, the process of individually texting workers for shift assignments resulted in a heavy administrative burden, especially as the company’s workforce grew substantially. This manual approach led to a significant number of calls and texts, causing confusion and inefficiency. The company recognized the need for a more streamlined approach to enhance its operational efficiency.
Everything in one place
Seeking a solution to address these challenges, Stefanutti Construction adopted Assignar, a comprehensive workforce and asset management software platform. Assignar’s capabilities aligned with the company’s requirements, offering features like real-time allocation, scheduling, and communication. The platform’s ability to eliminate paper-based processes and centralize allocation was a perfect fit for Stefanutti’s evolving needs.
The implementation of Assignar at Stefanutti Construction was met with a positive response from the workforce. During the initial onboarding phase, an SMS was sent out to encourage staff to download the Assignar app. The adoption rate was impressive, with the majority of the workforce embracing the new technology within a short timeframe. The easy transition onto the platform indicated that Assignar had quickly become an integral part of the company’s operations.
