Nebraska has no shortage of amazing local businesses, and we’re lucky enough to work with a lot of them! Recently, we spent some time hanging out with the crew over at Edward’s Stone to talk about their process. Edward’s Stone is a natural thin stone veneer company based in Lincoln, with showroom locations in Omaha, Fort Collins, CO, and Castle Rock, CO.
As is the case with companies of any size, Edward’s Stone ran into some communication issues. When you’re in the business of transforming people’s homes and workspaces, it’s crucial to know the status of each project right away and to be able to communicate that information to the client.
When crews text photos of projects back and forth, email photos at random to the office manager, or just not take photos at all, details can get lost in the shuffle. To combat the possibility of work falling through the cracks, Edward’s Stone decided to start using CompanyCam.
“The best thing for us has been the notifications. When someone comments on a photo or lets you know about a different project, it pops up on your phone right away.”
Matt Phelps, a project superintendent at Edward’s Stone, heard about CompanyCam and knew it could help solve their problems. With CompanyCam, Edward’s Stone has streamlined their communication and created a better process for their salespeople and project managers to relay information about projects.
The notifications have been a help to Phelps and his team. “The best thing for us has been the notifications. When someone comments on a photo or lets you know about a different project, it pops up on your phone right away.”
Colbi Ragon, a project manager for Edward’s Stone, also sees the value in CompanyCam. “CompanyCam is an excellent tool. It helps our salesmen connect with our project managers. Instead of them both meeting on site, we can refer back to the photos in CompanyCam and talk over the phone.”
No more telling clients you don’t know what the latest is, no more driving all across town to check in on projects. Now every Edward’s Stone team member is on top of each project and can answer any questions quickly.
We’re thrilled that CompanyCam is making contractors’ lives a little easier and even more excited that people like the team at Edward’s Stone are finding ways to make CompanyCam work for them!
