Blois Construction, originally founded in Goleta, California in 1965, was honored for its use of Hard Dollar® software in order to increase customer response time for both estimates and job status, controlling costs, reducing risk, and increasing profits. With Hard Dollar, Blois (now headquartered in Oxnard, California) was able to achieve real-time status reports and improve visibility beyond previous solutions, enabling them to keep costs in sync with the revenues of the project.
The Don Chapin Company, founded in 1978 in Salinas California, has over 500 employees and several divisions. Don Chapin Company was honored for its use of Hard Dollar software to establish better client relationships. In addition, Don Chapin Company was able to complete the preparation and development of 54 home sites spanning 614 acres located in Carmel Valley for the Quail Meadows subdivision ahead of schedule and 10% under budget. Chapin combines the Hard Dollar enterprise system, Maxwell’s StreetSmarts accounting, and Primavera P6 scheduling programs to maintain project costs in a fluid manner allowing the immediate transfer of data from the project site via Hard Dollar Timesheets to the home office.
“We congratulate all of this year’s Vision Awards winners, and are proud to be included in the process, especially with Blois and Chapin for this outstanding recognition,” said Doug Nicholas, CEO of Hard Dollar Corporation. “Blois and Chapin are leaders in utilizing technology to support their mission critical processes, including seamless collaboration and improved visibility into their business performance.”
Closer customer collaboration, mitigating risk, improving business processes and managing one central database were key factors in both Chapin’s and Blois’ decision to utilize the Hard Dollar Enterprise system. Functionality from Hard Dollar, Primavera Scheduling and accounting software were combined using Hard Dollar’s “Oneness” integration to deliver a seamless and truly centralized operational system for managing projects in real-time.
In addition to this seamless integration, Hard Dollar Time Sheets eliminate data lag, extra travel and provide management, customers, and operational teams with daily updates from the field. “Using remote Time Sheets has produced a significant reduction in back-office expenses and provided the data required to consistently deliver projects ahead of customer expectations with greater profit margins for our Company,” stated Don Chapin III, of the Don Chapin Company.
