With utility construction growing and poised for a boost from increased infrastructure spending, Utility Contractor magazine and B2W Software teamed up for this 2021 webcast to explore how contractors can complete projects more profitably.
Adam Schoenfeld from Whitaker Construction and Ram Vela from The Vortex Companies discussed how their companies are moving from pen-and-paper processes to modernize some of their most critical field-centric workflows. The panelists covered technology and strategies to improve resource scheduling and dispatching, job performance tracking, payroll processing and equipment maintenance. Schoenfeld and Vela also shared insights into implementing and integrating new technology.
Headquartered in Texas, Vortex provides specialized trenchless water and sewer renewal solutions for municipal, industrial and commercial infrastructure. As CIO, Vela spearheads all aspects of technology and works with leaders across divisions to make technology a competitive differentiator for the company.
As in-house B2W administrator, Schoenfeld is the company’s go-to resource for coordinating B2W applications. Whitaker completes a wide range of utility and heavy civil construction projects across Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado and Oregon.
Both companies utilize the B2W Software ONE Platform for unified estimating, resource scheduling, field tracking and equipment maintenance.
