Let’s talk technology. Onpoint has always embraced the value of innovation through technological advances while also taking the approach that knowledge and experience should influence our technology decisions.
We know that our Onpoint personnel make the difference on a job site thanks to our advanced training and experience, and we don’t take that for granted. For example, does a specific project management software program make you a better scheduler? No, it does not. But it does make a good scheduler more effective. This is why we need to start with a solid foundation – our people – and build technology solutions that help you exceed performance standards. TrackPoint, our materials management software, will do just that.
In last month’s newsletter I talked about how industry research has identified opportunities to improve turnaround efficiency. Onpoint’s Materials Management Program implements a process and tracking tool called TrackPoint to receive, organize and distribute materials, which increases the amount of time spent on tools.
We know that rental equipment can be difficult to track and manage during turnarounds. So, in an effort to save time and lower costs, we’ve also adapted TrackPoint to combat this specific issue. For example, all equipment, safety gear, radios, etc., will be issued and returned using a digital scanning system allowing us to provide transparency to contractors and owners on the status of project equipment. This ensures all rental equipment is properly returned and accounted for.
We are looking forward to the many ways we are working to improve TAR efficiency, and TrackPoint plays an essential role in that process.
