HR System Integration with Staff Scheduling System Phase 1
Solution Description:Trident Process Systems, a fabrication company for energy industry customers, manually tracked all scheduling and workforce needs per project in a series of excel files. Keeping track of jobs for hundreds of customers in over 100,000 SQ FT of space became unmanageable for the Trident team. In order to honor their core value of providing on-time, high-quality solutions, they needed an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that would help expedite their scheduling process.

Using multiple Excel files to manually track the scheduling and workforce needs for every project became error-prone and time consuming for the fabrication company. One primary Excel production schedule to hold general product information for various projects caused employees to: * Manually update the assembly schedule to assign people to projects every week. * Update five other spreadsheets from the assembly schedule * Manually populate the scheduling dates and assign * Often reschedule the entire backlog manually * This process made tracking actual completion versus estimated completion especially difficult.
