Explorer Shafers Customer Climate Heating and Cooling Receives Constructech Vision Award
Explorer Software is pleased to announce that one of their customers, Climate Heating and Cooling from Springfield, Virginia, was recently named as one of the winners of the 2010 Constructech Vision Awards in the Specialty Contractor category.
The Constructech Vision Awards honor companies that have realized the advantages of applying innovative technologies to their everyday businesses as well as the technology enablers that have helped them achieve their goal. “All of this year’s winners are exemplary companies from the construction industry, across multiple vertical segments,” says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Constructech magazine.
Corey and Henry Rodgerson from Climate Heating and Cooling, and Jim McFarlane from Explorer Software accepted the award during a dinner and ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Woodfield Schaumburg hotel in Illinois. “Explorer Software is proud to see Climate Heating recognized for this award. It is a great honor for us to help our clients reach their ongoing goals,” said Jim McFarlane, President and CEO, Explorer Software.
Explorer Shafers provides tremendous benefit from mobile and field based technology. With instant access to inventory and scheduling, employees have experienced increased efficiency and turnaround. Climate Heating and Cooling was able to utilize the Shafers Dispatching Module to help the installation crews and service technicians to know when and where to be - and just as important, to arrive completely prepared. Corey and team were also able to drastically cut fuel costs as a result of the mobile GPS offering within Shafers fleet tracking. With fluctuating gas prices in these difficult economic times, savings is more important than ever in keeping up with any company’s bottom line.
Corey Rodgerson said, “Climate Heating and Cooling feels very honored to have received a Vision Award. We have always strived to make our company more efficient. The Shafers program from Explorer has been a wonderful tool for eliminating redundant procedures, streamlining paperwork flow and allowing us to act strategically on up-to-date information. It was quite a thrill for our work to be recognized by Constructech as an example of innovation in the implementation of technology. To be honest, we’ve never thought of ourselves as leaders or innovators. We’ve always just looked to make our lives easier, and Shafers has given us the ability to do just that.”
