Cianbro Construction Boosts Business Productivity and Reduces Development Time by 50% with Progress
Cianbro optimizes equipment management software (EMS) with integration of mobile apps created with Telerik Platform by Progress
Cianbro operates in more than 40 states and 12 markets, and employs nearly 4,000 people. To maintain its reputation for completing projects safely and on schedule, the company chose to implement a new EMS system. However, as Cianbro mapped its implementation, it immediately identified significant gaps in the product's capabilities—particularly around the warehouse mobility solution. With an implementation deadline looming, Cianbro turned to Progress for a solution to rapidly build mobile apps that would enhance the system with advanced functionality.
"We wanted to be able to handle multiple devices, while still utilizing
a skillset that our development team already possessed, and utilizing
the Progress solution gave us that," said
In just two months, Cianbro was able to create and deploy a mobile barcode app. The new app enabled users to quickly look up barcodes from their mobile devices instead of having to flip through pages in a binder - turning a tedious task into a simple activity. Workers can simply enter an item name and search for it. The app then presents a barcode they can use with the EMS scanner and an image of the product so they know they're scanning the correct item.
This barcode catalog development process went so smoothly that Cianbro used Telerik Platform to create an equipment maintenance application in two weeks' time. The company also has plans to leverage the NativeScript® product for creating additional apps that will further improve business processes.
"Mobility has become increasingly important in the construction sector,
with contractors using smartphones, tablets and other portable devices
to conduct everything from safety observations to quality checks to
financial accounting and reporting," said
