SPARK helps Contractor Improve Productivity with Custom Labor Dashboard
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.

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.
