Silver Star Construction faced the challenge of efficiently managing a diverse fleet of construction equipment, ranging from small engines to bulldozers. The company was bogged down by traditional, time-consuming processes involving phone calls and manual paperwork, leading to inefficiencies and a higher chance of mismanagement. The need for a streamlined, accurate, and quick reporting and inspection process was clear.
"Before we started using Clue, there was a lot of running around, leaving my desk, making phone calls. We were constantly having the foreman or technicians email us or call us with that information to manually enter that."
- Amber Smith, Equipment Maintenance Scheduler, Silver Star Construction
"10 years ago we didn't know where anything was really. Matter of fact, we lost a scraper for one year!"
