FACTS

L

Sheet Metal Workers Union needed updated training software

L

HVAC manufacturers nationwide need updated project management,  price, design, scheduling, shipping, test, and installation software

ISSUES

L

HVAC manufacturers sheet metal cutting tools produce too much scrap metal

L

Sheet metal workers need a competitive advantage over the non-union workforce in order to maintain better salaries and benefits

L

Antiquated and disconnected systems cause continued issues throughout the HVAC project life cycle

L

Union sheet metal workers are expensive, so HVAC shops need to optimize time and expenses at every phase

RESPONSE

L

Automate shop drawing creation

L

Interface HVAC design with shop machinery

L

Integrate HVAC manufacturing systems from sales to installation

L

Optimize resource allocation

L

Track job product from creation to installation

L

Create new certified training software

L

Create Benchmark Software for streamlining the HVAC manufacturing process

RESULT

L

Today HVAC manufacturers using Benchmark enjoy less scrap metal, gained efficiencies in design times, more accurate pricing, and have a better understanding of job metrics.

L

In turn, union sheet metal workers now have multi-level certification training curriculum that take them from apprentice to journeyman.
