SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosendin Electric (www.rosendin.com), the nation's largest private electrical contractor and a 100% employee-owned company, today announced the company has received the Gold Constructech Vision Award in the Specialty Contractor category. The award, announced yesterday at the Constructech Technology Day Conference in Oak Brook Terrace, Illinois, was given in recognition of Rosendin Electric's innovation in automating quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC) using mobile computing technology on the job site.
Working with Vela Systems (www.velasystems.com), Rosendin Electric was able to create a new approach to manage QA/QC in the field using mobile technology such as tablet PCs and iPads to deliver access to information and metrics, allowing executives and project managers to make more informed decisions. Rather than carting reams of paper and tubes of drawings to the job site, Rosendin Electric can now turn field data into powerful electronic information for managing quality and safety. Project teams can manage day-to-day communications regarding issues on the job site using consolidated data, and managers and executives can view metrics across projects, identifying trends in field performance, quality, safety, and other areas. Specific benefits from the initiative include:
- Gathering of more consistent, measureable quality control data;
- Use QA/QC information gathered from projects to proactively identify trends and reduce both jobsite and corporate risks;
- Understand quality performance to better manage post-project evaluations;
- Avoid claims by providing a secure audit trail of the progress of quality and construction;
- Increase profitability by reducing costly rework; and
- Accelerate project delivery by saving time normally spent on less efficient means of communication.
"Receipt of the Vision Award is a testament to Rosendin Electric's commitment to bring the latest technology into the field, where the work gets done," said Sam Lamonica, Vice President and CIO for Rosendin Electric. "We look at the QA/AC reporting initiative as the first phase of an ongoing project to untether functionality throughout core disciplines, including safety and other mission-critical functions. Being able to automate QA/QC means we no longer have to wade through thousands of activity codes, and we are assured that the right information is being delivered to the right people, fast."
