kelbuildThe Problem

Before contacting LiveCosts, Kelbuild was operating from a paper based purchase order system where each site foreman would record orders in a PO book. This caused problems as gathering the orders from site became a very time consuming process. This resulted in the head office being frustrated and left chasing order details from site. This old PO system also left room for missed or lost orders and had no direct relationship to the delivery or invoicing of these orders.

Introducing LiveCosts

Before moving to LiveCosts the team in Kelbuild feared a digital system might be too technical for their site foreman. These concerns were quickly put to rest once the site foreman was trained and introduced to the LiveCosts site app. 

The site app now connects office to field meaning the team in HQ have full sight and control over everything that happens on site. These orders are now digitally collected with costs being automatically added to project budgets. This now provides a live feed of cost data to their projects dashboard.

The Benefits

Kelbuild have now reduced the paperwork across their business while having a connected feed of POs, deliveries and invoices from site to office. Through a direct integration these invoices are now automatically created in their accounting software package, Sage 50, which overall has made significant improvements to Kelbuild's day to day operations.
