Fisk Electric Keeps Focus on Field Activities by Eliminating Full-Time Document Administration Effort

Shifting their workflow to digital not only changed their process, changed their ability to bid for work.

Very large infrastructure, industrial, and transit projects have a lot of documents. Document administration on large projects can take anywhere from a few hours a week to a full-time position. Administration requires downloading documents and adding them to a single location to be approved for field distribution. While information is being processed, there can be a shift in the project like moving a tray support. That kind of change requires the team to go back and rework. Fisk Electric’s challenge is getting this volume of information back to the field. Fisk Electric needed a source of truth.

With DADO, Fisk Electric can get information that is more accurate.

We are gaining confidence in our ability to obtain information. Instead of being in the trailer to get information, foremen are now in the field using their iPads. 

Cory Borchardt, Senior Vice President of Operations

With DADO, Fisk Electric can get information that is more accurate. Fisk’s goal is to reduce admin time in the office. “Our people were excited about cutting down on all the slip sheeting. Our foremen are finally putting their iPad to practical use to find information on a breaker or a light pole in a parking lot. It is a gamechanger,” says Borchardt. One way to reduce admin time is to digitize forms to cut down on field admin time. Fisk is using the DADO forms pilot build upon a framework to cut down administrative time with field personnel and the back office.
