DHE Plumbing & Mechanical

Regional construction leader DHE Plumbling and Mechanical has always brought innovative services to the market. But their software was not modern or efficient. To continue to serve their customers, they turned to a SPARK custom software team to upgrade their operations and remain competitive.

SPARK helps Contractor Improve Productivity with Custom Labor Dashboard

The Challenge

With dozens of crews out each day, DHE’s leadership knew they need to embrace a digital transformation to stay competitive in their mechanical and plumbing services, but they didn’t know where or how to begin.

A SPARK Assessment helped define their immediate need to capture real-time job progress and gain insight into scheduling and forecasting.  A technical plan to eliminate duplicate data entry for their existing systems was also delivered.

The Solution

To help DHE’s leaders visualize their streamlined forecasting dashboard, the SPARK design team created a prototype. After feedback was captured from all stakeholders, architecture and development began. Proactive Weekly development check-ins kept the owners engaged while delivering on requirements.

DHE now leverages the drag-and-drop program to assign employees to their job sites. The tool is powered by a custom forecasting algorithm.  Real-time employee capacity, assigned work, potential, and labor deficiencies are all simply displayed.

Client Review
“In order to meet our organizational goals and remain competitive, our team realized there had to be a better way to centralize and improve communication between our PMs, Estimators, and Field Employees. Since launching our new SPARK technology solution, we have eliminated the “unknowns” and are productively managing more work and employees. Our active and potential jobs and capacities are centralized and are now driven by data as opposed to guesses. We highly recommend SPARK Business Works."
