Fabrication Company Goes Paperless with Globodox – Discovers More Efficient Way to Manage Projects

Background

Amerifab International Inc. is a company that engineers and fabricates modular steel buildings for the petro-chemical, oil/gas, pipeline, drilling, and power generation industries. They started small, but grew over the years and now have a new 50,000 square foot electrical and fabrication facility to continue their global expansion. Consequently, the number of projects they had to manage simultaneously grew. So did their archive of documents amassed over 20 years of operation.

“Amerifab’s goal was to help employees find documents faster and share them securely without having to create multiple copies.”

Challenge

Amerifab International produces a variety of buildings custom manufactured to meet their clients’ specific criteria. Besides manufacturing and consulting functions, like every business, efficient office administration too was critical to their business success. Managing documents related to various functions was an integral part of their business activity. For a growing business, with increasing clientele, this started to pose a challenge. All this called for a system that would help their employees stay on top of the paperwork and yet achieve their individual and team goals.

The team at Amerifab realized that what they needed was electronic document management software that could achieve the following:

  • Help their employees find documents faster
  • Share documents in a secure manner without having to create multiple copies
  • Comply with government regulations
  • Reduce paper consumption, and
  • Make the company better organized in general

The search begins, and ends!

When you read through the list, it seems like they were asking for too much. But the fact was that in order to manage the growth of their organization, this was the right time to implement a document management system. And so they began looking for a solution that would fit their requirements. Globodox was the first software they tried.and they found it to meet their requirements,
but needed to make sure it would deliver;

Customer service during the sale and after-sales follow ups made the experience of purchasing and implementing Globodox a smooth and hassle-free one.
