When exploring the feasibility of this potential partnership, we wanted to start by visiting a job site in person to see how the technology was going to work practically. According to Vatos’s Business Systems Manager Daniel Delgado, Concepta was the only company that took the initiative to do this.
“One of the very first things that Concepta Team mentioned was a site visit. They wanted to see Vatos’s business in action so that they could tailor their proposal to our needs.”
After our bid was selected, we got to work designing and implementing a new solution in two phases. The first phase covered the initial development of the application, while the second phase refined the system to increase flexibility, automate more of the workflow and navigate persistent supply chain challenges.
Phase 1 - Using a Node.JS and Nest.JS framework, we developed a streamlined, flexible application that enabled the Vatos Drywall team to efficiently view, track, and manage individual projects and overall company performance from both the job site and the office. This application would serve as the foundation for further updates in phase 2.
Phase 2 - Phase 2 was focused on building on the foundational technology developed in Phase 1 to create a more flexible, mature, and scalable system. This stage included adding autonomy for admins through custom system CRUDS, revamping purchase order capabilities, integrating SupplyPro, and developing a new data model that automated the loading of material order information.
New leadership? No problem!
Partway through phase 1 of our collaboration, Vatos was bought by National contractor Paul Johnson Drywall. Paul Johnson’s leadership was thrilled with the early results from Phase 1 and wanted to see the project through to the end. Our agile approach allowed the new leadership team to make some minor scope adjustments to accommodate their business model, wrap up phase 1 and move on to integrating across departments.
