Get this: Southern Nevada-based electrical company Allegiant Electric says it increased revenue by 581 percent since early 2017 thanks to the Verizon Connect Reveal mobile resource management software platform.
Allegiant Electric provides full service electric contracting, solar installation, and maintenance and repair for residential customers and commercial and industrial businesses. Prior to using Reveal to run their fleet, Allegiant would complete three jobs per day. Since implementation, Allegiant has been able to complete upwards of 30 jobs per day, add additional vehicles and grow their workforce from 3 to 15.
“We knew we needed something to help manage our scheduling, but never imagined how much the Reveal platform would transform our business,” said Allegiant Electric co-owner and founder Andrea Vigil. “The platform and its many features have given us visibility into our business like never before, enabling us to become a more productive, efficient and profitable business.”
How it works
Allegiant uses the Reveal live map and scheduling functions to locate vehicles in the field and quickly and efficiently schedule jobs according to the location of workers in the field. Allegiant also uses Reveal’s notes functionality to help improve efficiency while completing jobs in the field, which is particularly important during COVID-19 when detailed notes and additional precautions are crucial to keeping employees and customers safe.
With Reveal, Allegiant has been able to significantly increase the number of jobs completed daily, improve employee productivity, and receive location data for their fleet of vehicles and people in the field, substantially improving their bottom line. All of the vehicles in Allegiant Electric’s fleet are running on Reveal, with plans to add more.
“Allegiant Electric provides essential services, so delivering the software solutions they need to safely service their customer, drive revenue growth, and improve efficiency and productivity is essential,” said Kevin Aries, head of global product success at Verizon Connect. “This is a great example of how Verizon Connect is helping organizations of all sizes drive positive business impact and safely service customers.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
