Reston, VA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
Latista Technologies, the leader in quality and field management solution for construction, recently published a case study on how an Industry-leading chipmaker and Hoffman Construction improved collaboration and transparency on a $3B facility project. According to David Drinkward, business systems manager at Hoffman, “We wanted to use an electronic process to better manage quality and commissioning, Latista was the answer. With Latista we got the right people what they needed when they needed it.”
Latista’s web-based and mobile platform allowed all project team members in the office to access project information that was created by users in the field, putting all parties involved on the same page. “With Latista the owner had transparency of what was going on and that was a big win,” said Drinkward. Hoffman was able to instantly communicate with subs and virtually saw where the subs were with their progress.
Hoffman-chipmaker relationship was improved by the transparency that Latista enabled throughout the entire project. Collaboration and transparency was a specific goal for the project stakeholders. Both companies had a well-designed process they wanted used on the project and keeping all information and communication in Latista’s central software system made that a reality. “Everything was in one place and everyone could see the progress in the field and at the office,” said Pat Ward, commissioning manager at Hoffman. Ward also believes that the use of electronic commissioning forms allowed Hoffman to finish the $3B facility ahead of schedule.
“We are impressed with the quick adoption of e-commissioning and the dedication to quality and workmanship that Hoffman has demonstrated while working with Latista,” said Chris Ramsey, chief executive officer (CEO). “Hoffman is a company that will go above and beyond to deliver the highest quality to the wide array of projects they take on.”
