This accounting team now loves counting more than just beans!
One of the reasons that the accounting department for one of our larger, multi-plant customers used to dread assembling their month-end inventory reports was due to the hassle involved with requesting and gathering the liquid A.C. tank levels from their multiple plants.
At the end of every month, the accounting team had to request from busy plant personnel each of their estimated tank levels. Requesting, approximating, and tracking the AC inventory for dozens of hot mix plants became a daunting task each and every month for these plant teams and their accounting staff. This real challenge of information flow often created a delay in their end-of-month book closings – the negative impact of which compounded into other aspects of this large businesses’ finances. As good fortune would have it, they found a better way!
The Tank Tracker app allows you to monitor specific operations of your plant on the go.
When a few of their plants began experiencing first-hand the multiple benefits of remotely tracking AC tank levels using Stansteel’s Tank Tracker app, the accounting team’s former inventory problems promptly melted away. Through simple online access to accurate tank levels at their multiple plants, their days of chasing down and repeatedly bothering plant operators to calculate tank-stick approximations of crucial information ended with relief and appreciation by everyone affected.
While sitting at their desk, the accounting staff now easily accesses the information they need, when they need it, all in one quick step without numerous phone calls to the plant. This significant improvement for the accounting team, in turn, enables plant personnel to continue focusing on their primary role of safe and efficient plant operation (and not bean-counting or struggling with stuck paddles or cables). Both teams breathe sighs of relief.
As word spread throughout this company, dozens more of their plants ordered and began enjoying the profound benefits of our Tank Tracker app (and related Tank Manager system). Do you think their happy Accounting Department had something to do with the enthusiastic popularity of our true solution? Do you think they helped their plant superintendents find and allocate the funds for such innovative tools with obviously high return on investment?
