Andy J. Egan Co. – PurchasePointe

Mechanical Contractor

For the past 100 years, a premier Midwest mechanical contractor managed their purchase orders the same way many contractors do: by pen, paper, and spreadsheets. When they couldn't find the right off-the-shelf digital solution to this inefficient paper shuffle, they turned to SPARK.

The Challenge

Company leaders envisioned a new accounting process to improve the antiquated buyer-generated purchase transaction authorization process. Working with SPARK, Egan Co. stakeholders defined the scope, designed the "perfect" process, and identified all technical requirements. 

The Solution

SPARK developed PurchasePointe–a new internal application that provides four unique PO templated versions based on exactly how their work is managed. The ability to expedite the PO process with uploaded receipts, photos, and material/part lists has led to quick adoption from Andy Egan’s divisional administrative and field employees. Faster turnaround for POs.

How did SPARK improve your business?

“We love the new streamlined PO communication across our project managers, project assistants, leaders, owners, vendors, and accounting teams! In the first month of implementation, we processed over 1,000 POs! The efficiencies are exceptional! All information is captured, updated, tracked, and communicated from the same templated version. Before automating this process, we had to write everything down and pass it along to all stakeholders. Now the PM/PA selects the correct version, pushes enter, and  the PO is updated as the job progresses. Voila! Everyone is notified and can view the updates in real-time! Our partnership with SPARK has been crucial to our organizational growth and improvement.”
