Jovix for Fabricators

Reduce indirect labor hours by removing manual, error-prone, paper-based material control processes.

Fabricator Challenges:

  • Labor intensive, manual, paper-based processes used to manage materials
  • Lack of quality information regarding material furnished by others
  • Ability to locate materials quickly reduced as size and complexity of projects increases
  • “Paper to Computer” record keeping processes drives decisions based on erroneous or outdated information
  • Control of material is compromised as it flows between multiple physical locations and changes care, custody and control between parties
  • Major blind spots in current systems results in lack of visibility of what is coming, what is onsite, and what is ready for construction
  • High material availability issues lead to reprocurement, re-work and contractor claims

The Value of Digital & Automation

Manual, error-prone, paper-based processes drive up in-direct labor costs.  Replacing paper with a digital process reduces data entry and empowers workers in the field to make more informed decisions in real-time.

Jovix saves 1-5% of in-direct labor costs by digitizing paper processes and when possible automating them completely.

Fabricator Success Story

This client success story was an expansion into an existing facility in the Athabasca Oil Sands. A single EPC Firm ran the construction site with multiple fabrication subcontractors to build out the expansion of bitumen processing plant.

Objectives of the Project
  • Decrease material location times
  • Reduce reprocurement costs
  • Provide visibility between fabricators and jobsite
The Results
  • Reduced laydown crew from 12 crew members, 3 supervisors supervisors and 3 forklifts to 3 crew members, 1/2 time supervisor and 1 forklift
  • Completed construction 6 months ahead of schedule due to better planning
  • Reported ZERO lost spools in 2 years, reducing reprocurement costs
  • Tracked materials over 3,000 miles from site to site for better visibility
  • Located materials 4x faster in harsh weather conditions
