Companies like Samsung YESCO Electronics Sign , D3-Dynamic Digital Displays, Young Electric Sign, Federal Heath Sign, Jones Sign, Victory Sign, and Fairmont Sign all have seen significant improvement in operational efficiency by implementing Jobscope Sign Company ERP Manufacturing Software.
Just ask the employees and supervisors at Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO) who enjoyed bonuses for saving the Salt Lake City, Utah, company close to $250,000 in labor costs by implementing Sign Company ERP software from Jobscope.
Division manager Jeff Young said that it was through the company’s use of JOBSCOPE sign manufacturing software that the savings were realized.
JOBSCOPE Sign ERP software is a comprehensive job costing and material requirements planning system designed specifically for sign companies that and sign businesses than design, manufacture, install and provide related maintenance and service. YESCO is a design, engineering and manufacturing sign business for electric signs and lighting.
Sign Business Management Software
Sign Business Management software is crucial to financial success at Young Electric Sign. “Because of the detail that JOBSCOPE Sign ERP Software provided us in material and labor costs,” Young said, “YESCO Sign Company was able to develop a bonus system that rewarded our craftsmen and supervisors if the actual time spent on a sign project was less than the estimated time. Sign Business Management software gives them an incentive to create efficiency in their tasks and provided us with a real performance measurement.”
“JOBSCOPE sign industry software allows us to define our material and labor cost categories very specifically,” Young said. “So at the end of a job YESCO has a very good idea of what happened when and by whom. If a person makes a mistake, they have to do the job over, their hours are over budget, and they won’t get a bonus.”
Using the detail available in JOBSCOPE Sign ERP software, YESCO pays 10% of all realized labor cost savings back to the employees responsible, Young said.
The detail also helps YESCO Sign business managers make difficult decisions about layoffs during slower periods, Young said. “Sign business management software it is a good performance measurement tool, it helps us in deciding who will stay and who will go, and it holds people accountable for what they do. There’s no way Young Electric Sign Company could ever do this if we didn’t have JOBSCOPE’s sign industry software.”
JOBSCOPE Manufacturing ERP Software Solution Replaces Legacy Sign Business Software
YESCO began using JOBSCOPE sign manufacturing software in 1995 when the sign business software it was formerly using to track costs became obsolete. “We had a company providing hosted sign business software but YESCO decided to bring in our own system,” Young said. “Initially, the primary appeal of JOBSCOPE Sign ERP software was that we could modify it to mimic many of our old system reports. We had at the time about 1,000 employees and we didn’t want to make a great deal of change. By using JOBSCOPE Industry Software, Young Electric Sign was able to maintain consistency with what our employees already were familiar with plus we were able to add other important features.”
JOBSCOPE sign ERP software allows YESCO to integrate all of its sign business accounting systems, including payroll, accounts receivable and payable. “Under our old hosted sign company accounting software system, we had no control over the data, screen or report layout and if YESCO wanted a report, we had to send out for it and wait a day for it to come back,” Young said. “Now anyone can access data from any computer or mobile device and we can all get reports in real time. If I need information on the cost of some item or project or information about a timecard or clarification about a job, it’s there. I don’t have to wait for someone to generate a report for me. So for us, the greatest benefit of JOBSCOPE Sign business software has been the information that is available and the ease of accessing that information.”
The accounting integration can also speed up the realization of cash flow, Young said. “For example, when YESCO has a large job that is completed, we can enter all the data, get the invoices out, and get paid more quickly. In the past, a large job might have had to wait a month before all the data was available for the proper billing.”
JOBSCOPE sign ERP software also enables YESCO to be more responsive to its customers. The company uses JOBSCOPE Excel download feature to enable users to sort data in whatever format they desire. “For example,” Young said, “we can sort our service contracts by geographical regions. We have people patrolling our jobs all the time to see if there’s a problem. By sorting geographically, a person on patrol can be sure he doesn’t miss checking on a job. Before JOBSCOPE, we only had listings by job type or in alphabetical order so it was easy to miss one.”
Young also finds it very beneficial to sort the jobs based on when a service contract is set to expire. “When a sign maintenance contract is going to be up in six months, we can call on the customer, give them some extra attention, and improve our chances of getting a renewal,” he said.
Continuing Sign Business Software Success
A new feature that Young Electric Sign Company began using in late February 2002 is the trigger and alert function available in some applications of JOBSCOPE sign ERP software. “Sign manufacturing and maintenance is a labor intensive business and overtime is a hot issue for us,” Young said.
Jobscope Sign Industry Software Alerts Feature
“By setting an alert, I can be notified of overtime issues. We are required to pay overtime, and if our employees elect to stay late, for whatever reason, costs can get out of control very fast. I can get daily overtime reports, which allows me to connect with certain supervisors to make sure they are managing their labor cost on a real-time basis.”
As director of a division of 230 employees in a $100 million company of 1200 employees, Young and other top level managers can’t — and don’t want to — get involved in every cost decision. “But the tools in JOBSCOPE sign ERP software allow each manager and supervisor to take responsibility for their areas of concern. It goes back to the bonus system. All along the way, there is an embedded incentive for the craftsmen, the managers and the supervisors to keep costs down because they know there will be a full accounting at the end of job,” he said. “Without the JOBSCOPE sign manufacturing software tools, none of that would be possible.”
