PowerFlow Solutions’ Document Management System Repairs Holes in Frederic Roofing’s Workflow

When Frederic Roofing’s paper consumption went through the roof, the trusted St. Louis business turned to PowerFlow Solutions to install a document imaging solution to effectively track and manage all documents in a digital format.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
Over the course of eighty-two years, Frederic Roofing has become a successful business and a household name in the St. Louis area; but, with the growth of the company, came the inevitable overflow of a necessary, yet overwhelming by-product: paper. In order to maintain the pace of their success and adapt to the digital age, Frederic Roofing turned to PowerFlow Solutions, a St. Louis based provider of document management and document imaging solutions, to enhance workflow efficiencies and improve customer service.

“With PowerFlow’s document management system, we will only become more efficient and more organized - we are knocking out five birds with one stone. Most importantly, we will have more time to do what is most important … sell roofs,” said Gene Frederic III, Vice President at Frederic Roofing.

Prior to teaming with PowerFlow Solutions, Frederic Roofing had been using a successful, yet predominantly manual process that was somewhat labor intensive. PowerFlow took the time to help the roofing company find those areas that could be automated and helped define articulate value as measured by saving in cost, time and effort. After meeting with PowerFlow, it became apparent that Frederic Roofing had the potential to remove at least 1/3 of their current manual steps with the software.

“We had considered doing this many times but no one had pro-actively taken the time to help us determine what steps had merit and what we should avoid,” said Frederic. “Brett Taylor and the PowerFlow Team opened our eyes to some real savings that would not have been realized without an outsider influence. It was an exciting team effort working in that type of manner.”

PowerFlow Solutions’s main objective is to review their clients’ current business systems and processes and customize the PowerFlow Software to match their needs. With a user-friendly interface that is immediately recognizable by anyone who has worked with paper and paper filing, the PowerFlow product is organized like an existing file cabinet, only digital: making it easier to find, use, share, collect and distribute information.
Even in the early stages of PowerFlow implementation, Frederic Roofing has noticed measurable progress in a number of day-to-day business processes. The company’s improved, online file folder reduces the time and costs that are associated with storage, search and retrieval, maintenance, and lost documents. In addition, the reliable roofing company is setting the bar for their industry in terms of speed of delivery and customer satisfaction. Customer service is no longer delayed by manual document filing and retrieval, as documents can now be accessed with the click of a mouse. Daily steps that used to take anywhere from ten minutes to a half of day are now being routinely accomplished in seconds.

“Their ‘intimidation’ and ‘fear’ of going paperless has been replaced with: ‘Wow!’ - It is possible to do this with less paper and less energy. Over the past eighty-two years, Frederic Roofing has completed 70,800 jobs without PowerFlow. I am looking forward to seeing how many we can accomplish together in the next eighty-two years,” said Taylor. “We are much honored to have a fourth generation company with such a credible reputation join the PowerFlow Family.”
