QSI PROVIDES SUPERIOR SERVICE WITH HELP FROM XTIVIA AND INFOR™ CRM
For nearly two decades, Quality Solutions, Inc. (QSI) has excelled in the facilities management industry, trusted by major retailers, restaurant chains and other enterprises to handle the repairs, maintenance and infrastructure projects
that keep them operating in top condition. With 140 direct employees and a network of top-qualified vendors, QSI has earned a reputation for excellence and efficiency. Managing successful projects and delivering exceptional service requires tools that support and promote organization, coordination and communication—tools that XTIVIA and Infor CRM are helping to provide.
“The company was using paper and manila folders to track our jobs. It was a real struggle. We handle thousands of tickets a month, and the process was inefficient with too much potential for error or oversight. We knew we needed a purpose-built application to help us track, manage and invoice our projects.”DAVE ALVERSON,
CFO FOR QSI
QSI recognized that any application would need to be customized to meet its unique business model and workflows. The advanced customization capabilities of Infor CRM made it the platform of choice, and XTIVIA’s extensive experience and expertise in tailoring the solution made them the ideal partner. “XTIVIA gained a solid understanding of our business and then helped us design the system to achieve our goals,” says Alverson.
HUB OF THE OPERATION
Today, Alverson describes Infor CRM as the hub of the company’s operations. “It handles every aspect of our operation. It is a single tool for managing our customers, our vendors, our contracts and our projects.” As work requests from customers are received, they are logged in Infor CRM, creating a new work ticket. The nature of the ticket—plumbing or painting, for example—determines how the so ware assigns a project manager to the project, and which vendors are dispatched to the site. The system helps keep projects on schedule and operating smoothly.
INCREASE IN PRODUCTIVITY
With all its relevant job-related data in a single database, the company is enjoying improved productivity across the organization. Manual tasks have been eliminated, freeing staff time for more strategic endeavors. Automated workflows speed processing, keeping service levels high and speeding the invoicing cycle.
“We are a service organization, and our reputation depends on our ability to provide superior service to our customers at every interaction,” says Alverson. “This solution helps us retain that high level of quality. With all relevant data in a single database, we can monitor, review, respond and analyze that data and become even better at what we do.”
Alverson praises the professional consulting team at XTIVIA. “With XTIVIA’s help we’ve accomplished a great deal over the past year. They are very responsive, understand the deadlines we work under, and have extensive knowledge of the so ware,” says Alverson. “Over the coming year, we will continue to renew our systems to help us become even more effective and efficient.”
